Damaged bridge on Chiang Mai-Chiang Rai Highway No 118 repaired





The Highways Department has restored a bridge on Highway No 118 that connects Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai at km 32+941 in Chiang Mai’s Doi Saket district, director-general Sarawut Songsiwilai said yesterday (August 5).


“The highway had been cut off at the bridge across a waterway as a mass of water caused by the Sinlaku storm earlier this week damaged the bridge, making the route impassable for vehicles,” he said. “The department has deployed a 40-metre-long steel Bailey bridge as well as strengthened the land at the bridge neck to make it more stable. Now the route is passable for both vehicles and pedestrians,” he added.




“We urge road users to employ extra caution during this rainy season and strictly abide by warning signs and Highways Department recommendations,” Sarawut said.


“For more information on route status and roadside assistance, contact Highways Department Hotline 1586, which is toll free and available 24/7,” he added.

If we are in fact Thailand 4.0, shouldn't the infrastructure be planned for the future rather than the patchwork quilt of constant inadequate repair we see on a daily basis?
