New Mini-Bus Terminal Soi 51

Post by Geko » Tue Mar 14, 2017 2:41 pm

Reliable source informs me that a new bus terminal for all the small buses is under construction in Soi 51, great idea if true. I came down 51 the other day and looks like it could be correct, on the left hand side going East there's a large area under construction.

This confirms it's a mini-bus station, which starts operating on 1st April (great choice of date). I guess the Soi 51/Petchkasem Road junction, especially for Northbound could become a challenge.

They were installing CCTV there today. Is it actually a passenger terminal or an off street secure parking facility? Admittedly it would be great if it's a passenger terminal. Could be either.

The sign doesn't actually say it's for mini buses either, just referring to fixed route passenger vehicles, which could be mini buses or passenger vans, but could also be full sized buses. No more waiting at the clock tower for buses going south?

I'm seeing photos of the new terminal operating this morning on Social Media (sorry, still can't upload). Be careful, the Soi 51/Petchkasem junction could become a bit hairy for a few days.
