Bangkok | Pedestrian-Crossing




Thanon Mahaphruttharam at its junction with Thanon Rama IV.

Pedestrians unaware of traffic flows on the multi-lane crossing.

The most dangerous concern is when there are high-sided vehicles, such as coaches and lorries in lane 4, as pedestrians stepping out onto the crossing are completely unsighted to approaching drivers in lane 5, with the result that there is a real and ongoing danger of a serious vehicle/pedestrian collision.

The combination of white directional arrows, coning and removing the old ‘STOP’ line marking in lane 5, together with installing prominent vertical signing at the crossing, made the road geography clear to both pedestrians and drivers.  These remedial measures removed any confusion that previously existed.
