Japan funds ring road restoration

- +

Japan will allocate 1 billion baht in financial support to help restore Bangkok's eastern outer ring road to serve transport during any future flooding, Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt said. 

Mr Chadchart said the ring road, which is part of Highway No.9, is significant for the transport of goods from industrial estates in Ayutthaya and Pathum Thani, as it is linked to Laem Chabang port in Chon Buri.

The restoration work would ease transport problems in the event of a large flood, he said.
