NAKHON SAWAN - Shop owners have protested against a planned 800-million-baht tunnel under the Dechatiwong intersection in Muang district.
The group erected banners around the area opposing the project. They argue the tunnel would not help solve traffic problems and its construction would deter customers from shopping in nearby areas.
Protest leader Surasak Tisayathikom said he wanted the authorities to put the budget allocated for the traffic underpass toward building a new city bypass instead.
