Sophon Cable TV reported on Facebook that the Route 7 section from Pattaya to Maptaphut is now nearly complete. 

 

The Highways Department said it is 98% done. 

 

The road is expected to open to drivers in July on a free basis. 

 

It will be fully operational by August when charges will be levied.

Charges on the road will roughly equate to 1 baht per kilometer. 

 

The toll to Bangkok will be 130 baht. 

 

The new 32 kilometer stretch of Route 7 is being done in 13 sections at a cost of 14.2 billion baht.

It should reduce it, not increase it.  It is an excellent route that will make a major difference to road volumes on other congested roads.  Good on the Thai planning people. 

We shall see in the next couple of years.

This new modern road will take a lot of traffic off Sukhumvit, which is very busy road with a history of accident issues.

But how will the police survive without victims?

This will be interesting. I'm hoping people will bypass Patts completely and Sukhumvit will open up a bit. 

Would be good if this negates the need to go ahead with the previously proposed additional underpasses on Sukhumvit. The Pattaya Klang construction period was a  bit of a nightmare but has ended up being of great assistance to the traffic flow in that part of town. 

Hopefully the mooted underpasses at Thepprasit and Tai (and Nua?) will be seen as no longer needed due to likely reduced traffic flow. But the lure of the brown envelopes may trump any such logic..........hopefully not.

A very silly comment by someone who probably has no knowledge of the area at all and even less of the road structure here.
