Despite promises, Phahon Yothin traffic getting worse

- +

Despite government promises, Bangkok commuters continue to suffer from extraordinarily heavy traffic on outbound Phahon Yothin road, especially near the Mor Chit skytrain station where public buses, mini vans and taxis queueing for passengers block most lanes. 

The Mor Chit station is also an interchange with Chatuchak subway station.

Outbound Phahon Yothin road consists of five lanes. It is extremely congested most days and particularly on work days during rush hours, as three of the lanes are usually occupied by private cars, taxis, mini vans and public buses. And it's not getting any better. Quite the contrary.
