Following a crisis meeting on Monday it has been decided to clear the vendors out.

An alternative area will be zoned off – a tented area has been suggested.

And an emergency lane is going to be set up to allow access for ambulances, fire engines and the like.

Deputy governor Sakonthee Pattiyakun said that he and his teams had surveyed the Khao Sarn, Rambutree, Sipsamhaeng, Tanao Road and sub-sois over a period of two to three weeks.

Everything was fine by day but as soon as the sun went down the area was a confused mess, Sakonthee told Matichon.

Above all else it represented a danger in an emergency.

He set August 1st as the day for a new beginning for the area.
