The removal of damaged flyover slabs above Rama II highway is now complete and traffic has been restored to normal, the Department of Highways announced on Wednesday evening.

Director-general Sarawut Songsiwilai said the damage – which was caused by a vehicle higher than the legal limit hitting four of the flyover’s slabs and causing them to become loose and partly damaged – has had no effect on the bridge structure.
