Last night, I had to drop a passenger off at No. 2 Bus Ststion, what a disgraceful shambles it is, absolutely disgusting, they are showing no regard for drivers. Signage, as said above, is little or non-existent, lighting is required at a number of spots, mud everywhere. I am lucky in as much as I know the road layout well, however, an out of towner would become completely lost. On the plus side, they were protecting their night workers well, with lots of safety personnel with lights.
Where's the #2 bus station BTW?

I thought #1 bus station was the one shoehorned into a back street opposite Fuzzy ken's and #2 bus station was out on the west ring road, a bit north of Chris's Place.

I believe you'll find that one is termed No 3 - have a look at an actual Udon map - and No 2 is as Tamada indicated.

Drifting off topic here, but I doubt the local transport drivers know the bus stations by their numbers. I suggested a friend make his own way up to Phen and he took car from his hotel, a lady driver, I think 'someone they knew'. He had a tour of Udon, airport, bus station (Fuzzy Kens), the ring road one, before finally reaching the Tesco's one. It would have been quicker to walk it.

No, not really. But Brian Davis has already confirmed what I thought was the case.

But thanks anyway.

The good news on the overpass is that 2 years in, construction seems to be moving steadily along. Will they finish the project by 1 September 2019?
