Some good news for motorists is that protesters may soon pack up & leave Rama VIII Bridge. Maybe as early as tomorrow pic.twitter.com/m51OghlOgg— Richard Barrow in Thailand (@RichardBarrow) February 4, 2014
Some good news for commuters is that the Rama VIII Bridge, that crosses the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, is due to re-open on Thursday 6th February. Anti-government protesters have been occupying the bridge for nearly a month now. It was originally due to re-open on Friday but they cleared it ahead of schedule. However, there are still some restrictions. Coming off the bridge you cannot go straight, you have to turn left.
