BANGKOK (NNT) - According to the government’s plan, the traffic infrastructure under-construction in the North-Eastern region will be a key tool to stimulate the economy, especially tourism and border trade, bringing benefits to people in the area.

 

General Prayut Chan-O-Cha, the PM has assigned the Minister of Transport, Saksayam Chidchob to follow up on the construction of roads, rail and air facilities in the northeastern region.

 

The infrastructure being constructed comprises the 196 kilometer-long Bang Pa-In - Nakhon Ratchasima Motorway, the 202 kilometer-long Nakhon Ratchasima- Khon Kaen road, the 6th Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge Ubon Ratchathani-Salawan, which will interconnect with the dual-track and high-speed train systems.

 

As for the rail system, there will be a high-speed track from Bangkok-Nhongkai, 9 routes of dual-track rail, which will facilitate transport in from Bangkok to this region and within the region itself.

 

Meanwhile, the air transport development plan will upgrade 9 airports, comprising 5 airports dedicated to flights to neighboring countries, 3 airports for secondary-tourism cities and 1 airport for sports tourism promotion.

At last we'll be able to zoom at high speed from Bangkok and admire the hideous concrete structures that wreck the scenery along with  the adorable factories that are planned to follow.

A tourist's dream.

The stretch of Highway 1 from Rangsit to Saraburi needed (and still needs) an elevated expressway an awful lot more than what any portion of Highway 2 does.

What? 

 

Ubon Ratchatani is hundreds of kilometers away from the future high speed train, on the opposite side of Isaan. 

 

One wonder what a bridge connecting Ubon to Laos has to do with the high speed train?
