Traffic Congestion. Sunday 4th Nov

Post by Old Grumpy » November 4, 2018, 5:52 am

Early warning of possible congestion in and around town today and possibly all week .The very revered monk of the newly being built temple just outside Nong Wau So, died late last night at the age of 98.Already there are over thousand army and police personnel being drafted into the area to organise the expected crowds .This monk was highly respected all around Thailand and by members of the Royal Family so you can expect plenty of important visitors as well which will add to the congestion .Old hands may remember when the other monk associated with this temple in Udon died a few years ago what happened in town, well this is on a par with that .

Just to add to that. a Royal princess is also in town and going to depart the military airport mid afternoon today with the usual gathering of escorts, so expect more congestion in this area.For Royal watchers it is the mother of the present K.ngs daughter .

To anyone going to pay respects at Wat Pha Pua Daeng .Local radio are announcing that all parking spots are completely full and traffic is nose to tail in both directions. Further parking has been provided in the fields a couple of miles away and a minibus shuttle is in operation .

Just arrived home near Ban Na Kha at 1630 hrs & the police were out in force at every U Turn & Intersection along the main Nong Khai highway heading into Udon.
So whoever was visiting Udon had been to Nong Khai or near there.

Cremation Ceremony scheduled for next Saturday, so traffic will be heavy for another week.
