Udon Industrial Estate in Non Soong

Post by FrazeeDK » September 29, 2018, 10:53 pm

Here's a government video on the Udon Thani Industrial Estate. Its been around since about 1999 with zero factories built there. Its been reinvigorated in the last year or so. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wfS9vK ... G8BUx/view

it is located here, east of the railway tracks on the north side of Non Soong and adjacent to the old Ramasun military base. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Udon+ ... 02.8158924

one interesting note is that the projected Udon Potash Mine owned by the Asia Pacific Potash Company location is immediately south of the industrial estate..

The government is sinking a chunk of cash into the industrial site.....another 500 rai is set to be developed.
Will the factories/industry come to Udon.......or will the potash begin to flow? So far, mum's the word.

perhaps both since Asia Pacific Potash's holdings (from a map provided by Parrot long ago) seem to stop just south of the newly expanding industrial estate. Perhaps this is all in preparation for the SRT dual tracking on their meter gauge and the planned standard gauge railway.. An industrial estate that is moving to completion would join neatly with the logistics capability offered by both the rail lines.. But, only time will tell. If the transportation nexus exists you might see various Eastern Seaboard auto parts companies willing to move to take the government offered tax advantages and cheaper labor in Udon.. As noted in the video, there are plenty of Issan folks who would be happy to "move home to Udon."
