A new road to Laem Chabang port in Chonburi province will be opened this year, improving transport connections in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), said Rural Roads Department director-general Pathom Chaloeywaret.

The new route will run 10.57 kilometres from the existing Highway number 7, reducing traffic congestion and providing faster access to the deep-sea entry point of the government’s flagship economic project.

Laem Chabang port is currently undergoing phase-two expansion to boost its cargo-handling capacity.

Construction of the road, which was in line with Transport Ministry policy, was at an advanced stage, with one of four construction phases already completed, said Pathom.

The reinforced concrete road will feature six to eight lanes, traffic islands, and lighting. Four bridges are also being constructed along the road.
