Transportation Department launches app to monitor realtime traffic during Songkran

Thailand’s Department of Transportation announced on their website yesterday, April 9 the launch of traffic maps that updates on real time which would prove very useful in monitoring the traffic during the Songkran break.

Just scan the QR codes below:

There are five different maps: (1) combined all four maps, (2)north, (3)northeast, (4)east, and (5)south.

After scanning the QR code, a copy of the traffic map in PNG format is automatically downloaded to your device.

We tried the QR codes this morning and here’s the sample of the traffic map:

The map above shows all routes from Bangkok to northern, northeastern, eastern, and southern region. Notice the time and date stamp on the upper center portion of the map: April 10, 2019 – 7:39AM.

At the lower right portion you will see the following codes:

GREEN: traffic is moving smoothly
YELLOW: traffic started to be congested
ORANGE: moderate traffic building up, cars move slower
RED: heaver traffic build up, cars move very slow
PURPLE: national highways

The maps are published in Thai only, so names of roads and places are in Thai, you may need a translator for this.

Here’s a screenshot of the traffic maps leading to four different regions/

Bangkok to the Northern Region as of 7:40AM today

The Northern traffic map includes routes from Bangkok to  Kamphaeng Phet, Tak, Chiang Mai, Phichit, Sukhothai, Phitsanulok, Uttaradit and Phetchabun.
