Work begins for new Nakhon Pathom-Hua Hin highway

Post by buksida » Wed Nov 23, 2016 9:41 am

The Department of Highways (DOH) will expropriate land for the first time for its multi-billion baht construction of a new highway linking Nakhon Pathom and Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan, director-general Thanin Somboon said yesterday.

The construction of the 109km highway, at an estimated cost of 63.9 billion baht, will be run under the government's public-private partnership scheme.

The work will be divided into two parts: the land expropriation estimated at about 9.4 billion baht overseen by the DOH, and construction and maintenance of the highway, its system and rest stops, valued at about 54.5 billion baht and funded by the private sector, according to Mr Thanin.

He did not give an exact period for the construction though expropriation has been set down for the current fiscal year ending next September.
