Pattaya, the 29th of March 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Following almost 5 years of construction, Highway #7 has been announced as 100% complete by the Department of Highways. Contractors handed over the development on Monday morning with an unknown source from within the Department of Highway’s stating that the road will be opened officially on the 31st of March.

The project was completed in 4 phases over the past 5 years, with the 3rd and 4th stages of the major tri-provincial highway significantly stalling the official opening due to land acquisition and community acceptance issues. The entire cost of the Pattaya section of the development (phase 3-4) was approximately 585 million baht over the 5 year construction.

Highway #7 consists of a 4 lane road running Chon-Buri city to Rayong, passing through varies major subdistricts and Pattaya City itself. The highway intersects with the Sukhumvit Road between North and Central Pattaya before branching off to Rayong. Completion of the project will significantly reduce the reliance on Sukhumvit Road as a means to travel down the Eastern Seaboard and shorten the trip to Bangkok from Pattaya by 8km. Logistically the development will greatly affect the transport and heavy haulage operations running to and from the Lam Chabang Port and Map Ta Prut Industrial Estate both of which are adjacent to the route of Highway #7.
