An outgoing minister said yesterday that the new Prayut government should finalise an ongoing dispute between the Expressway Authority of Thailand (EXAT) and the Bangkok Expressway and Metro Plc (BEM).

The national authority has been ordered to pay Bt1.9 billion to its Bangkok counterpart after violating contracts related to the operation of an expressway section during a three-month period last year.

Departing Deputy Transport Minister Pailin Chuchottaworn said that the dispute should be dealt with in “the best benefits of expressway users and the public”.
