It will be a busy little stretch of road once it gets up and running. Local gossip has DoHome building a big new place same side of the road towards Home Hub.

The new place just before Home Hub is Thai Watsado. Another version of Do Watsadu. Right on the corner will also be Home Pro and Toyota Deeyiam.

The side road of the ring road should be raised if it is the location, it were flooded for a long time during the flooding.

The section of Sappasit Road where Benjama High school is located has only two lanes and is jammed with cars during school hours. Will they make an alternate route from Ubon to Central plaza?

It's going to be nuts. I don't see what they could possibly do considering how narrow it is. Maybe they could develop that Pramong Rd. that goes SW away from Rajabhat Campus. That's kind of an open area and would run right into the mall. Maybe there's something in the local Thai forums.

Here is an update on the new Central and some of the other projects going on around Ubon.

Thanks for the updates, you are doing a great job keeping us informed. Just one minor query though - according to Central Pattana's website, opening for the Plaza is still scheduled for April next year.

Let's hope that Sizzler's survey is showing positive for installing a noshery there!

Thanks for the correction. Just came across this link in BP too.

Yes, that was an interesting article - I see that they are quoting the expected influx of custom from Laos as reason for the project; this is also what inspired Central Pattana to build Central Plaza here. If they are correct then no doubt there will be even more large business groups building sites here in the not so distant future. Changing times for Ubon eh?

Have you any idea where Robinson plans to build its second store? If this has been reported previously my apologies for missing it!

I haven't heard but I would guess they'd go in the Central mall.

The size of these malls are huge and I suspect way to large to be supported by Ubon alone. Does anyone think its going to attract people from other countries to come and shop here.

Is the area going to offer a special status or a economic zone for shoppers?

I wonder myself. Even with the Ubon BigC and Tesco's my mrs says that folk come to look and enjoy aircon, a days holiday, BUT they do not buy anything, some do of course, but the majority. sad.png

I'm sure Central Pattana has done substantial market research and either sees a market or future market. I see tons of people buying things in Lotus and Big C. Both are packed. But without statistics it's anyone's guess. Would be very interesting to see some info on the local economy.

It kinds of remind me of the small towns in America where Mom and Pop shops were the rule, then Walmart would come to town and open up a superstore which bulldozed all the local competitors in town.

Maybe the Thai Govt. made Ubon the Hub of shopping. I find it hard to believe that the local people would be able to afford to shop

at such a place. I do hope it does succeed and help to create more jobs in the area.
