there are lots of Transportation Department "update" videos on the M6 Motorway.. It is not complete yet.. The last contracts lgiven out evidently are for the toll plazas. Aerial videos put up in the last couple of weeks show 500 meter gaps in the expressway with large patches of dirt where these toll plazas are due to be constructed. Near as I can follow on the videos the opening date is early 2565 or 2022.. When you do your drive down it appears that the out Khorat Ring Road is also complete that swings wide to the west around Khorat and goes back into Rte 2 a goodly 15km south of where the inner Ring Road (Rte 304) hits Rte 2... It also swings around the east side of Khorat too but that appears to be a bit longer route and perhaps with some intersections as opposed to the West side..

Dm.been on the road a few days ..notably the Bang Pa in to Korat route twice but full trip ...Udon to Buriram .. Korat .. Bkk.. Khao Yai .. Sisaket .. Ubon ..MSK ... .back Udon

Traffic resonably light even tho lots of road works on elavated u turns which is very welcome .. not one hold up and more and more great places to stop including many new PTT fun parks ..saw a few crazy drivers but no smashes which makes a change..

Also

Lamthakong resevour if brimming up to road level in some spots
Flooding in Chok Chai n Pak Chong on highway 24.. this stretch of road must hold the record for the most police check points but also a cracking steak n coffee stop near Nang Rong .

Also

Lots of police and army convoys .. korst to bkk .. bus after bus n truck sfter truck , i counted 30 buses of police in one convoy then a huge army personel movement within an hour of each other .

Also

I must be getting old ..driving in inner Bkk really pisses me off now .and i shout out lowd sometimes ....but all other faculties are ok Tam
