BANGKOK,(NNT) – The Expressway Authority of Thailand expects to finish the revamp of Bangkaew Toll Plaza of Kanchanapisek Expressway by early next year.
During a visit to Kanchanapisek Expressway, Chairman of the Expressway Authority of Thailand Gen Wiwat Suchart called a meeting to discuss the progress of the construction of a two-lane flyover across Bangna Trad Road and the enlargement of the road leading to Bangkaew Toll Plaza.
The project aims to ease traffic at Bangkaew Toll Plaza by 40 percent. The Expressway Authority of Thailand is also planning to build nine more electronic and cash toll collection booths and improve the existing ones so as to accommodate 3,500 vehicles per hour, in addition to other facilities that be erected to facilitate daily commute.
The revamp progresses ahead of schedule and is nearly 53 percent complete. The opening of the new flyover and Bangkaew toll booths can be expected as early as the beginning of 2018.
