[Bangkok Footpath Review] Accessible, Safe, and High Standard!

ภาพ ซาบะอยู่บนทางเท้า มีรถมอเตอร์ไซด์อยู่ใกล้ๆ

June 4, 2023 The Yellow Line BTS (Skytrain) has started its operation. I saw locals trying it out and having fun, so I decided to give it a try as well. However, I know what I’d like to see. I didn’t have much time, so I couldn’t explore the footpath below Hua Mak Station extensively. Based on my observation, “We have excellent footpaths that are convenient, safe, and of high standards!” — #BangkokActNOW

People with disabilities need to write records for transportation?

I do always use BTS or MRT for my daily commute. Today, I arrived at MRT Phetchaburi station in the morning. I went to the ticket counter and before I got into the gate, the security asked me to write down my personal record before enter to the gate. I told the security to do it for me and he actually wrote them then I handed my disability identification card.

The quality of life and public safety of a citizen…

A fellow friend of mine was recently hit a jackpot by having an (necessary) accident while he was about to step down from ill-built pedestrian cross bridge, making his rib broken severely. The district’s authority soon came to repair it, after the incident went viral. I was even more surprised by the quality of work repair. You can compare the before-and-after image. What an awful, careless job.

‘The S-Guard’, tools for blocking the motorcycle, another prison that locks down people with disabilities.

Jern-jern is a young PWD with muscular weakness (ALS – Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Still fresh from university, she has been working for 2 years. Her office is at Ratchada (read as Rat-cha-da) area, adjacent to her place in about 300-meter wheeling distance. Along the way on sidewalk, she has to encounter with a shit called ‘S-Guard’. It’s a traffic-calming invention built to prevent motorists driving on sidewalk. The S-Guard  can’t do the job, preventing motorists but blocking Jern-jern. She has no choice but to get down on the road and find her own way out. And we all know that …

The entrance of the MRT Bang O station, even a ‘puppy’ feels cramped to pass!

One of our fellow networks has sent this devastating scene to me when he explored the whole area of MRT Bang O station, a newly-built station recently opened for service. I personally don’t blame the labour workers who, after all, follow the order of their boss. And their boss follows the order of their superior up further, and the superior to the more superior.

The comparison between Bangkok’s brand-new pavement and Japan old-aged pacement, at a subway entrance

I recently got this pic. The width of Bangkok’s pavement is next to nothing. While the Tokyo city built since 36 years ago and offers you very wide even a car can run on. An image is worth million words. This kind of scene has prevailed in Thai society for too long. Why didn’t we see much improvements at all? Why we’re still underdeveloped, and let this non-sense takes over our city and our life?
