Vans to be moved out of the Victory Monument on trial basis during Sep 21-28


Inter-provincial passenger vans which have been parking illegally around the Victory Monument will be temporarily relocated to three selected sites on trial basis during September 21-28, said Colonel Suvit Katesri, chairman of an ad hoc committee tasked with setting a new order for passenger van service.


The three locations which will serve as temporary parking lots for passenger vans are Mor Chit 2 bus terminal, parking lot of BTS elevated train station at Mor Chit and an open space under the expressway belonging to the State Railway of Thailand.

A meeting is scheduled on August 20 between the ad hoc committee and operators of the passenger vans to assess the impacts on traffic in case all the vans at the Victory Monument are to be relocated to the three designated spots.

A space enough to accommodate 400 vans will be reserved at Mor Chit bus terminal for the parking of the vans.

Besides relocating all the vans to the three sites, shuttle bus service will be provided to serve van passengers by taking them to the three different parking lots to catch the vans to their destinations.
