NEWS HEADLINE : Rural Roads Dept. to pave non-asphalt roads nationwide
The caretaker Director-General of the Department of Rural Roads, Mr. Supot Saplom (ÊØ¾¨¹ì ·ÃÑ¾ÂìÅéÍÁ), says he will accelerate a project to transform non-asphalt roads overseen by the department across the country into macadamized road within the next two to three years.
Mr. Supot says the project was initiated in line with Transport Minister Santi Phromphat?s policy to modernize roads nationwide. More than 32 billion baht is estimated for the project?s implementation.
According to Mr. Supot, most of the non-asphalt roads are in the Northeastern region and demand for high-quality roads has been increased. Macadamized roads will greatly benefit tourism and transportation of agricultural products from production sites to markets.
Mr Supot says further that the construction of the roads uses less budget than other types of routes.
