Surapong Piyachote, the Deputy Transport Minister, made a strategic visit to Chiang Mai yesterday to deliberate on the Ministry’s endeavour to enhance the efficiency of the province’s transport systems. The meeting included Nirat Pongsitthaworn, the Chiang Mai Governor, along with representatives from corresponding sectors.

 

Surapong emphasised the importance of optimising the province’s transportation system for the city’s economy, particularly in catering to the tourism sector. He reassured that these plans are implemented keeping the welfare and identity of the local population as a priority.

 

The first section of these plans revolves around road development. This includes the construction of the first Muang Chiang Mai ring road, an 18-kilometre stretch linking Highway No.11 and Highway No.1141. It also encompasses the third Muang Chiang Mai ring road, a 53-kilometre road built on Highway No.121, reported Bangkok Post.

 

The road project also includes the development of the third Muang Chiang Mai ring road intersection. This bypasses the Mae Rim district and the Muang Thon Pao area. The expropriation cost estimation of this section of the plan is currently underway, according to Surapong.

Perhaps the officials involved are going for a world record for the number of times this has been studied and re-studied.

 

And keeping my fingers crosse the result WON'T be dedicate lanes on the existing road network. 

 

And if it's monorail system (which has been supported by the public), hope they come up with a much better plan of suggested stations, with easy access down to ground level (one previous plan had several stations in the middle of the superhighway, most not near intersections and therefore very difficult to get safely to the side roads. 

 

Oh well...
