• Vibhavadi Rangsit Road (inbound), frontage road from Horwang Road to Ha Yaek Lat Phrao intersection

• Vibhavadi Rangsit Road (inbound), frontage road to Lat Phrao or Ratchayothin overpasses

• Lat Phrao intersection at the road level

Instead, motorists are urged to use:

• Ratchadaphisek Road

• Senanikom Road

• Sutthisan Winitchai Road

• Vibhavadi Rangsit Road

• Kamphaeng Phet 2 Road
