Last night, I had to drop a passenger off at No. 2 Bus Ststion, what a disgraceful shambles it is, absolutely disgusting, they are showing no regard for drivers. Signage, as said above, is little or non-existent, lighting is required at a number of spots, mud everywhere. I am lucky in as much as I know the road layout well, however, an out of towner would become completely lost. On the plus side, they were protecting their night workers well, with lots of safety personnel with lights.
Where's the #2 bus station BTW?

I thought #1 bus station was the one shoehorned into a back street opposite Fuzzy ken's and #2 bus station was out on the west ring road, a bit north of Chris's Place.

No 2 us station is opposite the road licence office beside where they sell lots of fruit trees and beside the old Tesco. Only usually see mini vans using it

I believe you'll find that one is termed No 3 - have a look at an actual Udon map - and No 2 is as Tamada indicated.

Drifting off topic here, but I doubt the local transport drivers know the bus stations by their numbers. I suggested a friend make his own way up to Phen and he took car from his hotel, a lady driver, I think 'someone they knew'. He had a tour of Udon, airport, bus station (Fuzzy Kens), the ring road one, before finally reaching the Tesco's one. It would have been quicker to walk it.

No, not really. But Brian Davis has already confirmed what I thought was the case.

But thanks anyway.

The good news on the overpass is that 2 years in, construction seems to be moving steadily along. Will they finish the project by 1 September 2019?

Quite possibly , but it will then take until 2022 to put all the "unforeseen errors" right

Witnessing the progress each time I return from my frequent top secret missions overseas, they seem to have some sort of bit between their teeth so they may manage it. The only thing that I think may bite their arses is an unseasonably early and wet rainy season, that may queer the pitch. I can't view the YouTube as I am currently on another top-secret mission and using tin cans and string for comms but if the tunnel bit is mostly done, then the workers will all have a place to hide when it does piss down.

Doh, I thought that was the whole idea .......... all the water goes down the hole and the traffic gets to use the newly replaced traffic lights at the junction :-k

Oh, ye of little faith. Be thankful the project hasn't (yet) turned into a St. Mary's/Big C overpass fiasco. The construction actually appears to be top notch......at least as far as Udon is concerned.

Passing through Nong Han today on Hwy 22, I commented to Mrs General-Spratt that it seems to be taking ages for that intersection to be completed.

For what seems to be a relatively straight forward 4 way intersection to be upgraded, I reckon it has been close to 6 months, with no end in sight.

This work will take at least another 18 months to complete, but looking good so far

Can anyone explain to me how you would travel from Nong Khai to the Airport, once the underpass/overpass is operational. Coming from NK, there is new signage indicating left hand lane for KK and NLB. Will it still be a U-turn to the airport?
