4-lane road projects given priority

New funding sought after court ruling

- +

Four-lane road expansion is expected to be the first of the 2-trillion-baht infrastructure projects, according to a Public Debt Management Office source. 

The expansion would have already begun if the Transport Ministry had put it in the fiscal 2013 budget, said the source, but it did not because the Yingluck Shinawatra administration had decided to include it in the infrastructure plan.

All infrastructure megaprojects under the plan have been delayed after the recent Constitutional Court ruling that the 2-trillion-baht borrowing bill to finance infrastructure development was unconstitutional.
