The bill which allows the government to borrow 2 trillion baht for its infrastructure overhaul will be tabled before the cabinet on Tuesday, Transport Minister Chadchat Sittipunt says. 

Mr Chadchat called a meeting yesterday to prepare the bill's details for cabinet. The 2-trillion-baht investment would pay for more than 100 projects, the minister said.

The bill will not specify the construction locations because any changes would be deemed illegal once the bill is passed into law, he said.
