Wing 41 Road now taking applications
Applications for windscreen passes and motorbike
decals to use the short cut through the military part of the airport are
now being accepted, 6 months earlier than ever before.
Drivers wanting to use the road from the airport to Suthep Road near the
Irrigation Canal have always had to wait until November to apply for 12
month passes to use the road, which effectively completes the circle of
the inner ring road.
To apply go to the Royal Thai Air Force security gate at the Suthep Road
end of the road (not the airport itself) and will be told (in Thai only)
how to apply. Foreigners must take their passports.
The RTAF have stated that in principle they will allow their land to be
used for the future completion of the ring road along a similar route,
but no timescale has been given.
