BANGKOK – The new road, which will eventually connect to two motorways, aims to solve the city’s traffic problems.
Sarawut Songsiwilai, Department of Highways director-general, said on Monday that 7.38 billion baht has been allocated for the construction of the ring road, dubbed Highway 3901-3902.
It will be linked to the M6 and M81 motorways and more in the future in a bid to reduce traffic jams.
The road will also be expanded from two to three lanes and will have a specially designed drainage and lighting system.
Once completed, the department hopes the road will contribute to the development of nearby provinces and boost interprovincial travel.
