Highway 7 completion set for mid-March

The final phase of the Chonburi-Pattaya Motorway will be complete by mid-March, marking completion of a four-year project to relieve traffic congestion and create a convenient link between Pattaya and Bangkok International Airport.
Atit Keowkam, an engineer with Naowaratpattanakarn, the firm leading construction of Highway 7, said the last phase of the 2 billion baht project will open to traffic March 14.
“The fourth phase is 90 percent complete,” he said. “About 400 meters of road surface, installation of signs and lights will be done soon.”
Highway 7 was authorized by the Department of Highways as an urgent measure to relieve traffic that was crippling development of the Eastern Seaboard. It was also aimed at capitalizing on the opening of the Suvarnabhumi airport, which is located much closer to Pattaya than the old Don Muang facility.
