Re: new payment rstrictions

On the Big C card issue.. My Big C card is in my name.. I've had it since around 2009 or so. A few years ago I was asked to "register" the card at the service desk. I provided my Thai driver's license and its number was put in the system under my Big C Card number. (and phone number too). When I per...

Re: Lao Railway Progress

The railhead in China where the construction started heading south concurrent with the Lao rail construction is at Yuxi, a railhead south of Kunming. The Lao segment is actually a rather small part of a major rail expansion into southwest China. The Chinese are also building internal routes down to ...

Re: Lao Railway Progress

Based on Google Maps satellite views the rail route swings around the north side of Vientiane and to the east. I'm at a loss as to where it is planned to come across the Mekong.. Certainly there must be some long term route planning done by the Thai government since there's no doubt the rail line wi...

Re: Lao Railway Progress

This Lao guy puts up regular videos on both the Lao-China Railway and the Vientiane-Vang Vieng Expressway, both major infrastructure projects in Laos. Here's his latest on the railway project taken at the construction marshaling yard I think northwest of Vientiane. Three large diesel engines are sho...

Re: floating voltage

Re: floating voltage

PEA increased the size of the concrete pole footing by about 40cm's all around. They put in a ground rod at the next pole down with a cable secured to the side of that pole and going up. Where it goes I couldn't see but certainly it had to do with the installation of the step down transformer. Thank...

Re: floating voltage

here's what they installed down the street. As you can see they've jumpered the three hots A, B, and C.. Is that a transformer or some type of line load balancer??

floating voltage

PEA did an upgrade to the neighborhood power yesterday installed what I guess is either a transformer or load balancer of some type. It was in response to folks in one part of the village having low current/voltage. They completed the job about 5PM whereupon when the power was turned back on ours wa...

Re: Roads in and around UDON

Road Maintenance? I guess the question is who is responsible? The National Routes seem to get reoccurring repair and rebuilds funded by the Central Government. Out on 22 you have the big "Rural Roads" headquarters and compound.. I reckon they do the numbered "Rural Roads." As for village roads I don...

Re: Udon Traffic

Look at it as a totally immature driver population. Up until the last 15 years or so most people were unable to purchase a motor vehicle due to unavailability of credit to the lower income masses. In 2006, there were perhaps 9,000,000 vehicles on the road in Thailand. There were about 15.5 million i...
