A New Prison for Udon .

Post by trubrit » January 12, 2012, 10:39 am

Well with all the new developments I suppose it was inevitable .The current premises are housing three times the planned number of inmates including 400 females, even after the recent releases , so it is badly needed. It will be capable of containing 6,000 prisoners including, unlike the old one, those in Cat A in ultra secure accommodation. It will have a separate wing exclusively for females. Details of its location have not been released yet, but it is said to be in a rural area way outside of town . I know a site has been surveyed out past the Army golf club.More details as I learn .

Long time nothing has been revealed however it is interesting to note that it is not included in the list of projects being presented today to the PM for government funds. However there are five quite large road schemes and top of the list is the continuation of the four lane highway from the new Tesco/Big C to the Khon Kaen junction. Taking it past Maliwan villas .So it could be they have dropped the prison idea and are instead going for roads . :-"

The January article at http://www.udon-today.com/home/index.ph ... 3-02-51-49 says the city has interest in sites in Ban Khao (บ้านขาว), Kut Sa (กุดสระ), and Na Gwang (นากว้าง)....all three tamboons located off the Nongkai highway before you hit Na Ka.
The article said the government would seek feedback from villagers before deciding.

I haven't seen any updated articles.......but it appears the wheels are turning.

Is their IQ high enough to remember to take off the legchains when they use the swimming pool. :-k

Hopefully with more prisoners they will have a much larger shop full of their designed wooden tables,chairs although understandably not allowed to make a wooden ladder 8)

They should get cracking with choosing the site 8)

A friend with ties to the Chamber of Commerce tells me the new site will along the road to Ban Phue (a left off the Nongkai Hwy), but not far from the highway. He said the plan is to turn the existing prison land into a city park. No timeline available at this time.

Today city officials toured a piece of land in the Nong Hai/Nong Saeng area, adjacent to where the city hopes to build the city university. The area for the prison would take up approximately 161 rai.

So much for the news from a few years ago on prison locations!

City officials presented a letter asking provincial authorities to resurrect the plan to move the existing prison to Kud Sa (กุดสระ). The existing prison is designed for 3000 prisoners but holds 5000. The proposed location has 161 rai of land.

Long overdue in my book , looked crowded years ago , when I was involved in Visiting on a few occasions. Doubt if it has got better, they in fact need two as the one inside the town houses a female section inside the male section, very difficult and not really correct in my book.

I heard a couple years ago that the old prison site of 49 rai would be developed into a commercial center by a Bangkok consortium of big name firms. Not sure if that will proceed or was just talk.

that land in town must be worth hundreds of millions of baht. Somebody certainly is looking at it from that perspective. Moving the prison out of town just makes sense. Another project on a long list...

Imagine if Udon had something like "Xintiandi" in Shanghai. UDTown was meant to be, sort of.

But the prison probably needs a 100% tear down and new concept. K Village on Bangkok's Sukhumvit soi 26 might be a better model.

between military and government holdings including the airport and SRT's right of way along the railway I wonder how many thousands of rai of land they possess within the Ring Road...
