PM Prayut quickens the pace of construction at Benjaketti Forest Park in Bangkok

The government is working to increase Bangkok’s public green space inventory to a level that is acceptable on a worldwide scale, and one step in that direction is the building of Benjakitti Park. The 1.6 kilometer connection between Lumphini and Benjaketti will contain elevated park and walkway, designated bicycle lanes, and visitor rest spaces once it is finished, per its new plan and design. The public will gain greatly from the park once the development is finished. In the future, it might potentially serve as a location for important gatherings. The park draws about 3,000 visitors on weekdays and about 6,000 visitors per day on weekends, according to entrance data. The conference included discussions about expanding parking areas, extending the walkway along the road, and improving public transportation connectivity. In the Khlong Toei District of central Bangkok, next to the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center, lies a public park called Benjakitti Park. Prayut wants the city’s electric rail system to make parks in the Thai capital easier to reach. Benjakitti Forest Park construction has been accelerated by PM Prayut Chan-o-cha in advance of Her Majesty, the Queen Mother Sirikit’s birthday on August 12. Asok BTS Station, Sukhumvit MRT Station, and Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre MRT Station are all nearby. Benjakitti Forest Park has welcomed more than 600,000 people while it was just partially completed. At a meeting where the governor of Bangkok, Chadchart Sittipunt, as well as leaders from the Mass Rapid Transit Authority and Bangkok Mass Transit System were present, the PM pushed for the park’s rapid construction.
