Somkid sets deadline for 3 projects

Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak has set the first half of next year as the deadline for submitting the construction plans for an electric railway and two long-awaited motorway projects under the public-private partnership (PPP) programme.

If the projects face no setbacks, the bidding sessions should start in the second half of next year, said Mr Somkid after a meeting of the strategic steering committee under the National Council for Peace and Order.
