Delays expected in building of Nakorn Pathom to Cha-Am motorway

Thai media reported that the proposed motorway from Nakorn Pathom to Cha-Am is in danger of not being finished on time.

 

The 109 kilometer road being built at a cost of 72 billion baht was slated to be finished by 2019 but this is now in doubt.

 

The plans have run into budgetary and land expropriation difficulties that need to be resolved first.

 

Daily News reported that similar problems are also besetting the Bang Yai - Kanchanaburi motorway plan. A 65 billion baht budget was allocated for the road to the west but costs have rocketed by 16 billion baht due also to land expropriation issues.

 

There was, however, some good news - the Pattaya to Maptaput extension work looks to be on schedule with only one plot of agricultural land currently in dispute.

 

The motorway going south would be a boon for those travelling from Bangkok to the seaside resorts at Cha-Am and Hua Hin in particular.

 

The road would have nine toll booths starting with Nakorn Chaisri and ending at Khao Yoi as per our map today.

More toll booths, its almost impossible now to travel without paying. And the constant pull over by police at these places.

Well, how do you expect the roads to be paid for? let the users pay for the use of the roads. Better yet, take the bus.  :)

Road tax...thats paid for building and upkeep of highways. Petkasem is never a problem anyway,

Paying a total of 2 tolls each way going to/from Pattaya/Bangkok these past 7-8 years hasn't broken anyone's bank. With the huge increase in road traffic over the same period, paying maybe 5 more tolls for a well-maintained, fast motorway is worth it. Otherwise, take (at least) 5 hours out of your busy schedule and stick to Highway 3.

 

The likelihood of being pulled over by cops on the motorways is significantly less than on the nations dual-carriageway national highways. What are you doing wrong?

I travel on a regular basis from Pattaya_Hua Hin via Bang Na and Rama two. I would say almost every time at one of the toll ways police are stopping vehicles.

Just out of interest are they just pulling over pick up trucks or does it seem to be non discriminate?

Don't think the final toll booth is at Khao Yoi. The map shows two Khao Yois about 30 km apart, and it's only a little place. The last one is almost in Cha-Am.
