Bt32-bn plan to improve Laem Chabang Port infrastructure
The Ministry of Transport plans to spend Bt32 billion to expand its road network to Laem Chabang Port to ease traffic and also increase the port's shipping container capacity.
Deputy Transport Minister Prasert Chantararuangthong said after an operations meeting that the move was part of a plan to improve infrastructure connecting to the port. Also, the plans are aimed at preparing the port for the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015, in the hope of increasing shipping efficiency.
Under the plan, if it is an urgent project, funds will be used from the 2014 annual budget. If it is a big project, the budget will come from the Loan Act of Bt2 trillion.
