Why did they call it a Ring Road when it has 11 straight sides, could have called it something like the 'Eleven Straight Side Bent Circle Road'. And as for measuring, seafarers should be using Northings and Eastings.
Good call Sport, could call 216-1 to 216-11. That would make it easier. \:D/
it would certainly tie it in better with the rest of the country ..... oh 'angon, this is Thailand ...... that would NEVER be done :lol:

Oh dear . As an ex merchant marine im fully aware there are more than four points to a compass . There are 64 which are mainly used on a magnetic compass , and obviously 360 on a gyro .
As ex merchant marine i can work out your white line mainly heads in a westerly direction , allowing for tide and currents .
But thanks for the explanation of your misconceived logic.
Yoohoo sailor!... but I digress.

As an alleged former sailor, you probably should not have introduced the rather irrelevant reference to the 4 compass points to this otherwise erudite debate on the standard nomenclature of (roughly) circular roadways with reference to the central object they are primarily designed to avoid in the first place... or circumnavigate if that floats your boat.

Anyhoo, this westerly direction or 'flow' that you allude to, by virtue of it being on a dual-carriageway, has an equal and opposite easterly 'flow'. Thus my southern (with respect to the immovable object that is Mueang Udon Thani) ring road could easily be misnamed by you and others with a nautical bent as the eastern ring road because it's 'heading' that way as well?

I will give you the benefit of the doubt though and accommodate your yawing about on this matter since you don't typically come across a dual-carriageway while you're bobbing about in your dinghy now do you?

Funny you should ask . I gather your referring to the western , Whoops , southern ringroad , as i beleive its called by many.
I was on it last night picking Mrs Saint up from the airport , and the good side has been resurfaced for a considerable distance . Didnt need doing , but hey T I T. The bad side has been dug up in places and down to one lane with one warning sign , no warning lighting , nothing , and the odd cone every 100 metres or so.
So to sum up . They fixed the side that didnt need fixing , and f#cked up even more of the bad side .
