The overpass next to Big C heads East toward Sakon Nakon, would it no have been better for he overpass to go the other way

sorry pushed the wrong button, the bulk of the Traffic is on the Ring Road, would it not have been been suited for the majority to be cleard instead of banking where it could have been cleared much quicker if it was faced North to South. What is your opinion

Overpass/tunnel Udon Ringroad Nongkai Hwy

Post by parrot » December 21, 2012, 1:55 pm

When it was built, there wasn't that much traffic on the ring road in that area. But in the past 2 years, traffic, especially truck traffic, has increased substantially on the ring road, especially the Loei-Nongkai Hwy side, and then even more on the Nongkai to Sakhon Nakhon side.
And with nearly every sq. meter of space on the ring road being built up, and subdivisions going in all over, it can only get busier.

I've said it before, I'll say it again........people are betting on the come with all the building going on. Bangkok folks may be buying.....but what's driving it all? There's no new industry/tourism draw........just betting on a new high speed railroad and all that might bring with it......but that's proabably many years out....if ever. I'd fold.

I would say a tunnel just won't work, hope they build it better then the Big C overpass. with it's rain puddles. A real surprise for this not ready for it.

I agree. Industry relocating to Udon have the border with Laos as the gateway to China overland and a new rail system to ship goods into BKK, all over the country, 3 ports (BKK, Laem Chabang, and Rayong), and Malaysia. Not to mention access to even cheaper Laotian labor! To blazes with the increase in the minimum wage. What's not to love about relocating to Udon?
Enjoy this site much more by adding idiots to your ignore list (Friends & Foes tab).

bobbi udn posted on skyscraper city......a photo of the proposed under/over pass at the ring road/Nongkai Hwy. Along with a budget that looks to start next year. Unfortunately, I'm unable to tell from the post exactly when (if) it will start.

Just a heads up for anyone who frequents that area.....to start thinking about looking for alternatives.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthrea ... &page=2620 (go about half way down the page to the photo of a major intersection.....and the following post with the budget.

Should be good for businesses in Nong Samrong, as there will probably be thousands of extra cars/trucks using that road as a "Rat Run" to avoid the junction during the 5 to 10 years it will take to build :-k

Should make for some fun with the double/treble parking next to the market :-"

Those who remember the Khon Kaen tunnel and the traffic delays !!!

Police have already conducted a visual on where to conduct their roadside checks, wont even need to use cones to slow the traffic down,

when KK was building the underpass I always made sure I took the west side Ring Road.. Probably 5km longer but at least 20 minutes shorter in time and far less stress.. For Udon, coming from the east side heading to Nong Khai will be difficult at best during the construction.. Not many alternatives other than going through downtown, around the east side of Nong Prajak and through the Nong Samrong area and link back up to the highway... I sure wish they had the outer ring road done...

I was looking around Google Maps to perhaps find a rural road that would bypass the NongKhai/Udon intersection to the east or northeast.. There's nothing there much since that area is full of ponds and creeks.. I did however scan across what appears to be about a 2500 foot airstrip.. Anybody know anything about it? https://www.google.co.th/maps/@17.47176 ... a=!3m1!1e3

Brain cells what they are, I'm not positive....but believe I posted about a drag strip somewhere in that location.......some time ago.
