BMA speeds up clean up operation to open roads for traffic

 BANGKOK, May 24 -- Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) staff have expedited the clean up operation to open roads which were earlier blocked as rally sites, according to BMA city clerk Ninnat Chalitanont.
Ms Ninnat who inspected the clean up operation at the Government House this morning said that the roads around the Government House would not be ready for traffic at the moment as there were many obstacles left behind after the protesters dispersed.
She said sandbags, concrete barriers, canvas tents, mobile toilets and trash were left around the area.
However, she was confident that all debris would be clear by this evening and traffic could pass as normal.
She said the BMA staff have also cleared and cleaned up areas at the Government Complex at Chaeng Wattana area since early this morning.
It was expected that traffic could be opened there this evening.
Rajdamnoen Avenue and Aksa Road in Nakhon Pathom province have opened for traffic since yesterday evening, she said.
Some damage was found, such as trees at traffic islands and sidewalks, and repair work could be completed in two weeks, she said.
The anti-government protesters of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) who rallied at the Government House, Rajdamnoen Avenue and Chaeng Wattana and
the pro-government group of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) who staged a rally at Aksa Road have ended their demonstrations and dispersed after the military coup on Thursday.
The National Peace and Order Maintaining Council (NPOMC), led by army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-Ocha,  announced the coup d'etat on Thursday, saying the armed forces had seized power in a military coup, two days after declaring martial law to end street protests and fatal violence, as well as to restore stability and peace.
The NPOMC has ordered the protersters to end their rallies and returned home after ordering the ban on political gatherings.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
