Construction of Pattaya Highway No. 7

What kind of person would spend time taking pictures of a motorway under construction? Why would he do it? The extension of the Pattaya – Bangkok Motorway No. 7 opened end of March 2010 after 5 years of construction. The estimated cost for the extension is two Billion Baht. Construction was halted for about a year to work out conflicts with locals who were against the government seizing their property to make way for the new motorway. The pictures are dated 17 April 2008.
