Walkway connecting Bangkok parks will be renovated in September

A walkway connecting Bangkok’s Lumpini and Benjakitti parks might be renovated in September. The walkway was first built in 1999. The renovation will give it better biking and operating lanes, with flowers lining the perimeters. There will even be a park, in addition to a relaxation space.
The walkway is being known as the ‘green bridge’, and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration says it’s meant to be a landmark for Bangkok. City Hall said it allotted 260 million baht to renovate the walkway. The BMA announced at present that the renovation will begin this month.
The walkway was once known as a ‘twilight zone’ because of its poor lighting. The BMA then approached the Urban Design and Development Centre for help. Eventually, the UDDC started meeting with local communities to ask how the bridge might be improved. Limited was to enhance public space for them, as well as individuals passing by who were not from the neighborhood.
In the design for the upgraded bridge, lighting has been added to make it safer. In 2021, Thai PBS reported that the bridge couldn’t be made wheelchair friendly due to finances limitations..
