RTP deputy spokesman Pol Colonel Krissana Patanacharoen said 120,000 people would be returning by train yesterday and today, while many others would arrive at bus terminals and airports. Meanwhile, traffic heading towards the capital saw higher volumes than normal as people began the long journey back to work. In neighbouring Chiang Mai province, three bus terminals added 30 extra Bangkok-bound bus trips to cater for 112,600 travellers. To prevent future crashes, the Highway Department planned to set up a three-kilometre-long barrier to clearly divide the traffic lanes there. Arkhom also said a flyover would be built in two years at Worachet Intersection to ease traffic congestion and prevent accidents.
