The Director General of the Highways Department informed the media this morning.

“From May 22 the public can use the extended section for free starting at the U-Tapao toll booth. After the end of August the toll fee for Motorway number 7 will be 25-130 baht for four-wheel vehicles, 45-210 baht for six-wheel vehicles and 60-305 baht for other vehicles.”

The Director General believes the motorway is a vital part of the Eastern Economic Corridor project that will help link future and current transport routes, including transportation by air and sea. The total cost of the project was around 18 billion baht.

    Let’s hope it’s not just another killing field.
    Te design and engineering of these new Thai roads leaves a lot to be desired. They encourage high speeds in vehicles that are often not suited (or tested) for this.
    There is scant and erratic road markings and signage.
    Poorly designed junctions with indeterminate leaving and joining lanes.
    Surfaces are frequently not up to the vagaries of the weather and substandard construction means undulating surfaces that are often neglected and poor drainage.
