Bridges to get bus check

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) is planning to review the state of bridges in the capital to accommodate the new fleet of Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) buses, which will have lower bases to allow easy wheelchair access.

"We will work closely with BMTA on this matter," Deputy Bangkok Governor Jumpol Sumpaopol said yesterday. He said the road surface on bridges would be improved so the buses do not get damaged when going across them.

The government has assigned the BMTA to purchase 3,183 lowered buses, of which 1,524 will be air-conditioned.
