เชียงใหม่ ขอ 1.4 หมื่นล้าน ดัน 12 โครงการพัฒนาเมือง

เชียงใหม่ เตรียมเสนอ 12 โพรเจกต์ งบ 14,207 ล้านบาท เข้าครม.สัญจร ด้านเอกชนลำพูน ดันระบบขนส่งสินค้าทางรถไฟ รองรับการขยายตัว ด้านการค้า-ลงทุน ในอนุภาคลุ่มแม่น้ำโขง ส่วนหอการค้าทำหนังสือเปิดผนึกขอครม.อนุมัติสร้างถนน 4 เลน "ลี้-เถิน" และขยายถนนโลคอลโรดถึงแม่ทา พร้อมหนุนสร้างสนามบินลำพูน รับศูนย์กลางขนส่งในภูมิภาค


นายสุวัฒน์ ตันติพัฒน์ ผู้ว่าราชการจังหวัดเชียงใหม่ เปิดเผยถึงการประชุมคณะรัฐมนตรี (ครม.) สัญจร ระหว่างวันที่ 28-29 มิถุนายนนี้ ที่จังหวัดเชียงใหม่ และลำพูนว่า เตรียมเสนอให้ที่ประชุมพิจารณาอนุมัติโครงการทั้งสิ้นจำนวน 12 โครงการ เป็นงบลงทุนรวม 14,207.08 ล้านบาท ประกอบด้วย 1.โครงการพัฒนาระบบขนส่งมวลชนเชียงใหม่ งบประมาณ 390 ล้านบาท 2.โครงการก่อสร้างโครงข่ายถนนและโครงการแก้ปัญหาจราจรในเขตเมือง งบประมาณ 4,454 ล้านบาท

3.โครงการเชียงใหม่ไอทีซิตี้ งบประมาณ 381 ล้านบาท 4.โครงการพัฒนาอุตสาหกรรมซอฟต์แวร์ งบประมาณ 684.85 ล้านบาท 5.โครงการพัฒนาธุรกิจบริการสุขภาพในจังหวัดเชียงใหม่ งบประมาณ 175.40 ล้านบาท 6.โครงการจัดตั้งศูนย์ออกแบบสินค้าหัตถกรรม งบประมาณ 60.23 ล้านบาท 7.โครงการสร้างแนวโน้มแฟชั่นรูปแบบสินค้าหัตถกรรมล้านนาสไตล์ งบประมาณ 34.8 ล้านบาท 8.โครงการพัฒนาสวนพฤกษศาสตร์สมเด็จพระนางเจ้าสิริกิติ์ งบประมาณ 264.38 ล้านบาท

9.โครงการพัฒนาโครงข่ายการคมนาคมขนส่งจังหวัดเชียงใหม่ งบประมาณ 330 ล้านบาท 10.โครงการพัฒนาแหล่งน้ำ งบประมาณรวม 7,031.54 ล้านบาท 11.โครงการแก้ไขปัญหาน้ำท่วมของตัวเมืองเชียงใหม่ จำนวน 461 ล้านบาท และ 12.โครงการพัฒนาอำเภอมก๋อยแบบบูรณาการ งบประมาณ 207 ล้านบาท

นายปรีชา โกวิทยา ประธานกิตติมศักดิ์ สภาอุตสาหกรรมจังหวัดลำพูน กล่าวว่า ภาคเอกชนโดยสภาอุตสาหกรรมจังหวัดลำพูนได้เตรียมนำเสนอเรื่องเข้าสู่ที่ประชุมครม.เพื่อขอรับการสนับสนุนและพิจารณาอนุมัติ โดยมีประเด็นสำคัญ คือ การผลักดันให้เกิดการขนส่งสินค้าทางรถไฟและการสร้างอาคารคลังสินค้าเพื่อรองรับการขนส่งสินค้าที่จะเกิดขึ้น

เนื่องจากขณะนี้ผู้ประกอบการอุตสาหกรรมในนิคมอุตสาหกรรมภาคเหนือ จังหวัดลำพูน ประมาณ 7-8 ราย ได้รวมตัวกันนำร่องขนส่งสินค้าทางรถไฟ เพื่อสร้างแรงกระตุ้นให้ภาครัฐเห็นความสำคัญและผลักดันให้มีระบบขนส่งสินค้าทางรถไฟที่ครบวงจรต่อไป สำหรับรองรับการขยายตัวด้านการค้าและการลงทุนของประเทศในอนุภาคลุ่มแม่น้ำโขง

นอกจากนี้ สภาอุตสาหกรรมจังหวัดลำพูนเตรียมเสนอให้ครม.มีการทบทวนเรื่องกฎหมายจำกัดความสูงของรถตู้คอนเทนเนอร์ ซึ่งตามกฎหมายกำหนดไว้ 4 เมตร แต่ตามมาตรฐานของรถตู้คอนเทนเนอร์ความสูงอยู่ที่ระดับ 4.30 เมตร ส่งผลให้ในช่วงที่ผ่านมาผู้ประกอบการต้องประสบปัญหาถูกตำรวจที่ด่านตรวจบริเวณปากทางเข้าเขื่อนภูมิพล จังหวัดตาก กักรถไว้ตรวจสอบเพราะตู้คอนเทนเนอร์มีความสูงเกินกว่าที่กฎหมายกำหนด หากกฎหมายดังกล่าวยังไม่ได้รับการแก้ไขอาจส่งผลกระทบกับการขนส่งลำไยในฤดูกาลที่จะออกในเดือนกรกฎาคมนี้

นายณรงค์ ธรรมจารี เลขาธิการหอการค้าจังหวัดลำพูน กล่าวว่า คณะกรรมการหอการค้าเตรียมทำหนังสือเปิดผนึกถึงพ.ต.ท.ทักษิณ ชินวัตร นายกรัฐมนตรี เพื่อขอให้มีการขยายถนนระหว่างอำเภอลี้ จังหวัดลำพูน ไปยังอำเภอเถิน จังหวัดลำปางเป็นถนน 4 เลน และเรียกร้องให้มีการขยายเส้นทางการก่อสร้างถนนเลียบทางรถไฟ (LOCAL ROAD) จากจังหวัดเชียงใหม่มายังจังหวัดลำพูน ให้เชื่อมต่อความยาวของถนนไปถึงอำเภอแม่ทา

สำหรับแผนการพัฒนาเพื่อสร้างความเจริญให้จังหวัดลำพูน โดยเฉพาะเรื่องประโยชน์จากการใช้ที่ดิน ได้เสนอให้ครม.พิจารณาเรื่องการใช้ที่ดินของมหาวิทยาลัยเชียงใหม่ (มช.) ที่จังหวัดเคยมอบที่ดินในเขตบ้านจำขี้มด ตำบลดอยติ อำเภอเมือง จังหวัดลำพูนให้ แต่มช.กลับไม่นำไปใช้ประโยชน์และปล่อยให้ที่ดินรกร้างว่างเปล่า หอการค้าเห็นควรให้มีการเรียกคืนที่ดินเพื่อมอบให้สถาบันการศึกษาอื่นๆ เช่น มหาวิทยาลัยรามคำแหง หรือมหาวิทยาลัยราชภัฏเชียงใหม่ ที่เคยติดต่อขอใช้ที่ดินจากจังหวัด นำไปใช้ประโยชน์เพื่อสร้างความเจริญให้จังหวัดลำพูนต่อไป

ส่วนประเด็นการเรียกร้องให้มีการก่อสร้างท่าอากาศยานจังหวัดลำพูน คงต้องรอนำเข้าที่ประชุมคณะกรรมการหอการค้าจังหวัดลำพูนอีกครั้ง เนื่องจากเป็นโครงการขนาดใหญ่ แต่ภาคเอกชนเล็งเห็นว่าหากการพัฒนาท่าอากาศยานเชียงใหม่มีข้อจำกัดเรื่องพื้นที่ ลำพูนก็เป็นอีกจังหวัดหนึ่งที่มีศักยภาพและพร้อมรองรับการเป็นศูนย์กลางด้านการขนส่งทางอากาศในภูมิภาค

Duangtawan Hotel opens in Chiang Mai

504 rooms waiting for tourists


Marion Vogt


After three months of re-building, renovating and construction, Duangtawan Hotel, right in the heart of the city, has opened its doors.

The Duangtawan Hotel Group added the 504 downtown hotel as the latest ‘baby’ in their chain. They already operate properties in Bangkok (First Hotel), Pattaya (The Regent Marina and Central Place), Phuket (Hyton Leevadee) and Koh Samui (Malibu-Chaweng Beach and Samui Park Resort).


This new property is, for many tourists, perfectly situated in the middle of the Night Bazaar, making it easy to explore the city, going shopping and only a 10-minute drive to the airport.

The hotel boasts 34 floors, superior rooms, deluxe rooms, junior and executive suites with 2 bedrooms (perfect for family tourism) and even a presidential suite with four bedrooms, lounge and dining room.


The facilities include a business center, swimming pool, car park, traditional Thai massage and banquet and conference rooms for up to 800 people. For a city which aims to hit the MICE market and offer convention possibilities for any kind of promotion, a hotel with 10 conference rooms, all fully equipped with high performance audio-visual facilities with 40-800 seats fits the bill.

Surasri Suwannanon, general manager of Duangtawan Hotel introduced his hotel, saying that he and his staff want to contribute their share to make Chiang Mai an even more exciting location for local and foreign tourists.

He invited Suwat Tantipat the governor of Chiang Mai to strike the Lanna victory drum to declare the hotel officially open.

The reception was attended by over 500 guests, who were well fed and entertained by dancers from Simon Cabaret.

Chiang Mai Chamber has ambitious plans

Bullet train proposed to link Chiang Mai and Bangkok


The Chiang Mai Chamber of Commerce (CCC) has big plans for the city and will propose them to the government’s mobile Cabinet meeting next week.


The CCC is looking at four mega projects including an ASEAN SME’s EXPO 2006, Chiang Mai-Bangkok bullet train, Chiang Mai-Chiang Rai rail link, and Chiang Mai Planetarium.

The Chamber said it would propose its ambitious plans to the Cabinet meeting on June 28-30 in Lamphun through Chiang Mai Governor Suwat Tantipat.

The CCC will offer to organize the ASEAN SME Expo 2006 being the first SME fair of the Association. The venue will be the SME Center, which is expected to be constructed by early 2006. The proposal is to hold the exhibition six months before the World Horticultural Fair.

A rail link between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai is envisaged, with the intention to create a new tourism train route linking Phrae, Den Chai, Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai and Bangkok. It would also support transportation of agricultural products between Thailand and China.

The Chiang Mai Planetarium is planned as an educational and scientific center to give students the opportunity to learn astronomy and natural phenomena of the earth and universe in tangibles ways.

The bullet train project to Bangkok will cater for public demand for mass transportation. It will have a top speed of up to 300 km/h. "If these projects are realised, they will directly link the capital with the North and sustain economic growth from the southern China and the Greater Mekong Sub-Region," said Narong Tananuwat, Chiang Mai Chamber of Commerce secretary.

He added that the four mega-project proposals had been chosen from the total of 11 topics raised by the Committee of Trade and Investment Promotion.

Electric vehicles in trial run on school route

Autsadaporn Kamthai




Two 14 seater electric vehicles from the Electric Vehicle (Thailand) Company are on a free trial at schools located on Charoenprathet Road, Chiang Mai.





Two 14 seater electric vehicles from the Electric Vehicle (Thailand) Company are on a free trial of service for students at schools located on Charoenprathet Road, Chiang Mai.

They have been in use since June 11 as part of Chiang Mai Municipality’s attempts to solve the city’s traffic crisis and pollution and run at a speed of 35 km/h.

If their abilities meet the municipality’s satisfaction, it may purchase them to be used as part of city’s transportation. However, the municipality at the moment is still seeking budget approval from central government to support its mass transportation system and electric vehicle service.

When the three month trial period ends, the six minibuses that have been used to transfer municipal officials from the Carrefour outlet to the municipality’s building (part of its project to reduce pollution and solve the lack of parking at its office) might be used to continue serving the students.

"Apart from the Charoenprathet Road route, the electric vehicles might be deployed on Kaew Navarat Road on which two prominent schools, Dara Academy School and Prince’s Royal College, are situated," said the head of the Municipal Commerce Control Division, Panyapol Mongkolcharoen.

The electric vehicle’s route starts next to the Park Hotel, moves to Chang Klan Road, Charoenprathet, Soi 13, and passes the Montfort College, Sacred Heart and Regina Coeli and Chairoj Schools. After dropping off students at their schools, the vehicles continue to Sri Donchai Road, Chang Klan Road, passing the Chang Klan Plaza and the Empress Hotel before heading back to the Park Hotel.

Zoo celebrates birthday but gives away the presents

View the pandas in pairs with free tickets


Nopniwat Krailerg


The Chiang Mai Zoo celebrates its 27th anniversary this month. To mark the occasion, the zoo is holding a promotional campaign called ‘Giving Back Profit By Giving Presents’ by offering free tickets for visitors who arrive in pairs to view the pandas, and the animal shows for the rest of June are free, said Rodsukon Chuikamwong, its public relations officer.

The campaign is part of the zoo’s marketing strategy during the rainy and low season and the back to school period.

On June 19-20, it held stage performances and an exhibition of the development of Chiang Mai Zoo throughout its 27 Year history to celebrate its birthday.

12-story ‘eye sore’ whittled down to size

30 mio baht saving


Nopniwat Krailerg


Academics have protested against the proposed construction of the new 12 story Chiang Mai Municipality building, saying it will spoil the view along the Ping River banks.

The academics from Chiang Mai University, led by Dr Tanes Charoenmuang, also called the high-rise building unnecessary.

Chiang Mai Mayor Boonlert Buranupakorn has agreed to a redesign of the building, saying it would now have only seven stories. The municipality building will be constructed on the two rai area of the former residence of the municipality’s permanent secretary and was to have been built at a cost of 100 million baht. Reducing the building by five stories could save the government over 30 million baht.

The building has an underground parking space for about 200 cars. The electricity used in the building will be generated by solar cell panels. Windows and doors have been designed to maximize the light from outside to illuminate the interior and help save electricity costs.

Construction is expected to start in August and take 18 months to complete. The building will be built in Lanna style architecture and use Lanna decor.

SME centre to promote Thai-branded products

Atcha Piyatanang



The first small and medium enterprises (SME) centre here will be built behind city hall in Nong Hor district for a budget of more than Bt1.3 billion.


The SME centre, to be built on a 95-rai plot behind the Chiang Mai government service centre, is modelled on the Lanna-style domes of the stupas at Mae Fah Luang in Chiang Rai. The Lanna-style architecture reflects northern culture, while the centre’s sharp rooftop is believed to bring good luck.

Wanchai Ratchamas, director of the Department of Industrial Promotion, Region 1, said construction would take about two years and the centre would promote and develop the One Tambon One Product (Otop) programme and SMEs.

The Chiang Mai centre will enhance the capabilities of local manufacturers and producers of Thai-branded products. It will also promote information and communications technology and e-commerce products on the international market, he said.

It is hoped that Otop and SME products promoted by the centre will one day earn a reputation on the international market as famous brands. The centre will stretch over 100,000 square metres and provide parking for more than 1,700 cars. Lanna-style houses will function as museums, displaying northern cultural heritage and serving as an exhibition centre for special events.

Wanchai said the Chiang Mai SME centre would be run by a private group, the Northern Handicrafts Manufacturers and Exporters Association, in order to reduce the workload and budget of the government.

At the moment, the construction of the centre will likely exceed its budget by Bt380 million, taking the total cost of the project to Bt1.3 billion. This is thanks to landscape improvement projects around the Nong Hor area.

During construction of the Nong Hor centre, a pilot SME centre to be opened in September on Tung Hotel road will support local manufacturers and entrepreneurs until the main centre is in operation.

Chiangmai is famous in the OTOP, especially those "San Kam Paeng" products which brings a billion or two to the community last year...

Highrise plan faces growing opposition


Anchalee Kongrut


A civic group in Chiang Mai slammed the municipality's renewed effort to build a highrise office building on the Ping river's bank, saying it would spoil the city's famous river view.


Tanet Charoenmuang, vice-president of the Urban Development Institute Foundation, which monitors urban development, said mayor Boonlert Booranapakorn's highrise project would be a setback for the northern city.

``Chiang Mai is already suffering from unsightly development projects and air pollution. Instead of adding another highrise building along the Ping river, the municipality should attack local problems, such as the need for a mass transit system,'' said Mr Tanet, also a lecturer on political science at Chiang Mai University.



Last year the city and Phuket received negative results in the National Geographic Traveller Magazine's destination scoreboard, which rated both cities in the ``getting ugly'' group along with destinations such as Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the Acropolis in Greece, and the Pyramids of Giza, Egypt. These sites are being spoiled by unsustainable tourism, poor conservation and pollution, according to the magazine, which took into account environment and ecology, conservation plans and sustainability of tourism.



Mr Tanet said Chiang Mai would turn even uglier if the government could not preserve culture and historic sites.



The city hatched a plan two years ago to build a new office building to replace its crowded municipal office. Mayor Boonlert proposed building a 12-storey building as high as 23 metres but faced resistance from residents and even former governor Kosin Kedthong.



He brought the project back to life this month. The municipality cut the plan to eight floors, 22.9 metres high, to get around a law requiring an environmental impact assessment for buildings higher than 23 metres. Contractors have already cleared the area.

Mayor Boonlert sent the blueprint to the Interior Ministry and sought a 203 million baht loan from the state to finance the project. Local media reports say the building may pose security problems as it will be opposite the US embassy.



Mayor Boonlert was not available for comment.



The civic group will hand a petition to Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra in Chiang Mai today, asking the government to reconsider and hold public hearings.
