Drove past yesterday, not much action and most definitely not ready to open. Christmas is coming and I have no doubt which will be here first.

Did my 90 day report a couple of weeks ago and when I asked the officer if he knows when the new place will be ready. "I think I'm dead first!" was his reply.

slightly off topic 'StevePIraq' wrote 'Christmas is coming and I have no doubt which will be here first.' Curious about what a similar Thai expression would be, 'Songkran is coming', must be done by songkran?

I'm guessing it's a budgetary thing, and funds have been allocated elsewhere. I think work will recommence when new budgets are set.

I've been past a couple of times this week. Work has definitely resumed, and they seemed to be moving fixtures and fittings in today from a huge lorry.

Yes, I agree, it is ridiculous to name it such. It may well be the way some people use to get there, but the building is on Rural Road #1004, off of Road # 3218. :?

And what decides where the "top" or otherwise is of any road?

I think the key point is that most people know and understand Soi 88. I've lived here just about 6 years now, and travel local roads extensively. I wouldn't have had a clue if somebody directed me to Rural Road #1004, off of Road # 3218.

Well, road # 3218 is the Pala-U road, so I would say it is more well known than Soi 88. The fact is, the building is NOT on Soi 88, top or bottom, it is just ONE way of getting there. It is also accessible from Soi 112, so is it just as correct to say "top of Soi 112"?

Now, I would have understood Pala-U Road. :wink:

Of the roads I know, Soi 88 is the closest. However, you are correct, it isn't Soi 88. but everybody I talk to, does say the one at the top of Soi 88. Does it matter? I'm sure it'll be well signposted once it has opened. :twisted:

To answer your question it is on the same road as Jefferies RC model shop. Past his shop, on the left, or East side of the road heading South from Pala-U road. There is a map in an earlier post on this thread.
