Have they finished Kantalak to Det Udom? I haven’t been along there since last Christmas.

 

I was surprised they widened this section rather than the 2085/2178 Kantalak to Ubon in the first place. As you point out above, strange logic or lack of

No, not finished, probably at least 6 months away!

Last I read the ring road intersection construction is supposed to start in April I think. Anyone seen an update this month? I’ll believe it when the construction equipment starts digging.

Hope they don't use the same program planner / snail-paced contractors as are currently employed on the Sisaket Rd ring road junction.

 

Atrociously planned to cause maximum disruption* for an extraordinarily long period of time. Someone at City Hall needs a good kicking!  {not literally of course}

 

 

* surely no need to dig up all 4 legs of a crossroads right from the start!

Agreed Bergen - travelled its length yesterday.

 

8 km (estimate) from the Kantharalak end towards Det is however already blacktopped and might be ready within a month or two. The rest will no doubt be released in stages that I would guess will range from 3 months to 9 months away.

 

At the Det end there is still a concrete culvert to complete, but otherwise no major structures remaining and most of the clay roadway foundation work has been completed. Looks like it will be serially opened from its western end, moving towards Det - still some earth movers working on the last 10km into the junction at Det.

 

Have to say (and partly retract my previous opinions) that I was surprised how much traffic was on it* yesterday mid morning (post 'go-to-work' hours), particularly heading westwards. Perhaps it does make sense after all to have 4-laned it; it will at least encourage development in the southern third of Ubon province.

 

* Still nothing like the volume of traffic that was crossing Hwy 24 to pass between Kantharalak and Benchalak/Ubon. The direction of, and necessity of, that fly-over junction north of Kantharalak still evades common sense IMO. Watch them put 45 second timings on all the green lights under the flyover once constructed; that'll really enrage the north-south Kantharalak traffic as it sits underneath waiting for very little east-west traffic to come through!

Are you saying the flyover will be on the 2085 where it crosses the 24?

Yes - it's intended that 24 will fly-over 2085 east-west.

Ah ok the opposite to what I thought. Makes sense that the 24 traffic goes over without traffic lights etc.

Still sounds like a strange decision to build that there

The new airport renovation is also bringing some new restaurants. 7-11, Auntie Anne's, Black Canyon, and Amazon coffee are confirmed. Possibly others from the Central Restaurant Group. They are supposed to be done in July.

+ another.

 

I'm quite partial to a Subway sandwich too, but that format hasn't even really taken off in Bangkok centre , let alone Don Muang, so it's a non-starter.
