Songkhla to Phatthalung by new bridge across Songkhla Lake a step closer to reality
Picture: Hat Yai FocusA new bridge of 6-7km length would solve this problem cutting the average journey time by about two hours.
In addition emergencies would be less of a problem especially for Phatthalung folk needing to get to Songkhla.
The development that means the plan is closer is an EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) being currently conducted by the highways department into the feasibility of the scheme.
