More than a dozen Bangkok public bus routes will be diverted from Wednesday to Saturday (November 16-19) to avoid road closures around the Apec summit at Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre (QNSCC).

Sections of Ratchadapisek, Duang Phitak, Ploenchit, Wireless and Ratchadamri roads will be closed to allow Apec leaders’ motorcades to travel between their hotels and the summit venue.
