National Security Chief (NSC) Natthapon Nakpanich, this morning, also submitted a request to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O’Cha to consider the approval, in principle, for the construction of some construction projects and the workers’ movement if necessary in Bangkok.
The proposal mentioned the approval to allow construction projects that could cause structural engineering damage or danger to the people living in nearby communities. Construction that is related to traffic safety, such as traffic lights, and to Covid-19 epidemic control measures for public health purposes, such as field hospitals, should be the exception to construction closure orders.
