    Thailand reveals plans for 5,000km motorway network


    Thailand’s Ministry of Transport has unveiled a plan to construct eight motorways running parallel with rail routes to improve the country’s international transport links.

    The 5,000km of routes were revealed at a meeting held on Wednesday between the Department of Highways, the State Railway of Thailand and other state agencies.
    Saksayam Chidchob, the transport minister, said after the meeting that the government would either procure the roads as public-private partnerships (PPPs) or fund them from a state-backed infrastructure fund called the Thailand Future Fund.
    He added that land for the roads and any new cities and townships along the routes would be purchased all at once to avoid problems occurring after work had started.
    The routes are grouped into north-south and east-west clusters. The first will comprise three routes, the longest of which is a 1,660km link between Chaing Rai, near Myanmar, and Songkhla near Malaysia.
    The second and third connect Laos to the Eastern Corridor, with a 490km highway from Nong Khai to the port of Laem Chabang and a 470km link from Bung Kan to Surin.
    The east-west roads will comprise five routes:

    • A 710km motorway between Tak near the Myanmar west and Nakhon Phanom, on the Laotian border;
    • An 880km link to the south of the above between Tak and Ubon Ratchathani;
    • A 310km motorway between Kanchanaburi, also near the Myanmar border, and Sa Kaeo on the Cambodian border;
    • A 220km coastal highway between Kanchanaburi near Myanmar and Trat on Cambodian border;
    • A 190km road between the resort island of Phuket and Surat Thani, near the resort island of Ko Samui.

    A detailed implementation plan for the network will be drawn up over the next year, with construction of the first sections to begin in 2022 and 2023.

    No mention if they will add the potholes later or during construction.

    The contract tendering process should be interesting.

    That would be hugely unfortunate, but yes.

    Or maybe just a continuation of its original silk road plan dating back to the Han dynasty.

    A 190km road between the resort island of Phuket and Surat Thani, near the resort island of Ko Samui.
    Highway 44 covers most of that.

    Frankly, it has to be admitted the roads in Thailand are quite OK, paved roads and sois up to the last village.

    Surely, the fast development is helped by a certain portion of corruption - not so easy to eradicate in Asia. Unlike in other "advanced" countries where all such actions proceed in a "clear transparent" way with help of legal "lobbying"...

    Remembering my weekend drive more than 30 years ago from Toronto via Buffalo to Manhattan and back, being afraid whether my old friend's old Oldsmobile will survive the Manhattan transfer when not succeeded to avoid the many potholes...

    No, just most of the countries at the lower end of the Transparency Index, dickhead, that's why the chinkies pick them.

    The few they haven't bought off probably don't fully understand the nefarious chinky intentions. It's a veritable rogue gallery of crooked nations with a few exceptions.

    I'm surprised you're offering such a spirited defence of chinky subterfuge, but then I remembered you're as dumb as klondyke.

    No not all.

    Just if your read what there doing,its seems they are way ahead of the rest of the world, and of course they want something back from investments,no different to any of the other world nations investing in other countries.

    Just they seem to have a lot more money to spread around.

    If you really read what they are doing, they are indebting nations or bribing officials to grab what they can, so they can suck up countries' resources on the cheap back to chinastan and then use them to export finished products around the world to make profits others should be earning.

    They are by far the biggest global parasite in history.

    The trouble is you struggle reading unless it's something in pop-up or colouring format.
