Police extended their issuance of pass cards for people living or working near the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC), the venue of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit, until Saturday for the convenience of about 45,000 people there, the police spokesman said on Thursday.
Pol Maj Gen Archayon Kraithong said the pass cards would be issued to people who need to enter Ratchadaphisek Road between Asok Montri and Rama IV intersections and Duang Phithak Road, as the routes adjacent to the centre were closed this week from Monday to Saturday.
He said that about 45,000 people still had to use these routes because they either lived or worked in the area.
Until Saturday people could apply for the pass at Lumpini and Thong Lor police stations, which supervise Duang Phithak Road and the section of Ratchadaphisek Road respectively.
For online permission, registrants could scan a QR code and fill in a form with details about their residence, personal and vehicle data and photos of their vehicle.
