Udon Traffic

Post by NongKhaiLee » December 2, 2019, 1:29 pm

The wife and I came into Udon from NongKhai last night, which was a Sunday, at about 5pm. We shopped around a bit on the ring road and then tried to head across town to Central. We got stuck in some of the worst traffic I have ever seen. I lost count of how many times the traffic lights cycled before we ever made it through them, and the traffic circles were just as bad. Sometimes we just aborted even trying to get through them and took to the alleys.
We have been here for ten years plus but I have never seen anything like what we saw last night...is this the new normal for Udon on Sunday nights? (or even every night?)

It will be for the next couple of weeks with additional traffic on the roads too/from the fair I suppose

Phnom Penh, Is that the 2nd or 3rd exit from the clock roundabout?

ahhh....I totally missed it! Looks like no more Udon trips for a while. I'm a bit shy about large crowds (and plugged up streets)

Not 100% on topic (more of a tangent), as i've heard nothing yet can we assume that the NK powers that be, have finally come to their senses and realised that having 100s of loonies running round the NK streets and stopping xmas shoppers visiting at the busiest time of year is not good for local business and having engaged their brain and rescheduled their fun runs this year [-o<
