THIRD BANGKOK AIRPORT IN NAKHON PATHOM PROPOSED

The Airports Department has proposed building a new airport in Nakhon Pathom province west of Bangkok to relieve congestion at the capital’s two main gateways. The 20-billion-baht facility, to be located on 3,500 rai straddling Bang Len and Nakhon Chaisi districts, would take four years to build and he investment could be in the form of a public-private joint venture or a state-owned project, pending further study, said Jarun Meesomboon, the department’s deputy director-general. A hearing will be held in August to gather more information and suggestions in order to draft terms of reference in the future. If approved, construction could begin in 2023 and the airport will be operational 2-3 years later. If the Nakhon Pathom airport goes ahead and all phases are completed, it will be able to handle up to 25 million passengers a year. (ICE BANGKOK)
