Transport Minister Saksayam Chidchob

 

The construction of the Muang Mai-Koh Kaew Highway should begin by 2023, Transport Minister Saksayam Chidchob said.

 

The 22.4-kilometre highway, which is part of the ministry’s project to ease traffic in Phuket, will link Phuket airport with Krabi and Phang Nga.

 

The design and environmental impact assessment for the highway has been completed, he said, adding that the construction is expected to cost Bt11.5 million, plus Bt11.1 billion for land reclamation.

 

The Highways Department believes the highway will be ready by 2025.

11.5 million?

 

So assuming there will be an error in each paragraph let's read it as construction to start in 2025 to be completed by 2035

There is a dual highway from the airport to main dual road to Krabi etc.

 

Think this is just to bypass the shops in the village.

I think this is the highway that will bypass most of Thepkasattri Road between Ko Kaew and the airport area, hence my surprise when Krabi and Phang Nga were mentioned.

It would be much more informative if the article included a map showing the location and route of the proposed highway.

 

You won't get a map until all the prized location land has been purchased. Or you could run for council?
