Road Condition update : Route 101 in Nan province

Travel Tips Nan - Thailand

11 May 2017 : When traveling with your own transport (car / motorbike) be aware that there are multiple places where there are road constructions. At night or bad weather this might not be safe driving / riding.

  • On route 101 between Rong Kwang and Wiang Sa there are road constructions going on to expand the road. Probably from 2 lanes to 4 lanes. At the moment there are 2 sections of each 10 a 15 km. But is looks like there are going to more sections of road constructions. So I would think that this will take about 6 to 12 months.
  • On route 101 between Hat Pla Heang and Tha Wang Pha the road construction is now finished, only the part where route 101 crosses the Nan River (building a new bridge) is not finished yet. This is a section of about 500m and I think it will be finished within 1 month. I wonder what they will do with the old bridge? Just leave it there to collapse?
  • Route 101 between Chiang Klang and Thung Chang there is also a section of about 10 km with road construction going on. I would think that this will take about 6 months.
  • Also be aware that route 101 between Nan and Pua has been resurfaced at some sections. Some of this sections are 5 km, some are 500m. But all they are done very bad and made the road for motor-bikers more dangerous (slippery and grooves). And there was nothing wrong with the old road surface.
