Smooth traffic at Victory Monument

First day of new passenger van system

- +

Traffic around Victory Monument has been smooth from early Tuesday, the first day of the reorganisation of passenger van operations aimed at ending road congestion in the area. 

Under the new arrangement, from July 1 all passenger vans are required to park at Makkasan Airport Rail Link station and at an area under the expressway near the Asok toll booth.

They are no longer allowed to wait for passengers in the traffic area around Victory Monument.  They are being called in sequence to pick up passengers when enough tickets have sold for their route.
