Traffic in Bangkok was congested yesterday morning as the main waterworks canal overflowed in certain spots late on Wednesday and people living nearby moved their vehicles to elevated roads and flyovers.
The canal overflowed because of runoffs from Pathum Thani and flooded Prachachuen Road near Phongphet Intersection, and people decided to park their vehicles on flyovers and intersection bridges on Chaeng Wattana, Ratchayothin, Prachanukul, Wong Sawang, Sai Mai and Ram Inthra Roads as well as on the Kaset Intersection. Some parts of Prachachuen tollgate, Rama VII bridge, Srirat Expressway, Rama VI Expressway, Ram Inthra Expressway near Watcharaphon Intersection and the Thupatemee and Ratchavipha elevated roads were also turned to parking lots. Some of the bridges and elevated roads only had one lane free for motorists.
