Bua Yai (Thai : บัวใหญ่, pronounced  [būa̯ jàj] ) is a district ( amphoe ) in the northern part of Nakhon Ratchasima Province, northern central Thailand.

Contents

History

Bua Yai dates back to the frontier town called Dan Nok (ด่านนอก). The center of the town was Ban Nong Lang Yai. In 1868, it was upgraded to Dan Nok District and the town center was moved to Ban Nong Lang Noi. The district office was moved again to Ban Bua Yai in 1905, and the district was renamed accordingly. The office was three kilometers from the Bua Yai railway junction. The presence of the railway spurred development of the village Ban Fat Fueay which became the new site of the district office in 1951.

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise): Waeng Noi of Khon Kaen Province; Bua Lai, Sida, Non Daeng, Khong, Ban Lueam, and Kaeng Sanam Nang of Nakhon Ratchasima Province.

The district is divided into 10 sub-districts ( tambons ). The town ( thesaban mueang ) of Bua Yai covers part of tambon Bua Yai.

Thai highway network Wikimedia list article

The Thai highway network follows the left-hand traffic rule of the road. The network is the twin responsibility of the Department of Highways, and the Department of Rural Roads, under the oversight of the Transportation ministry of Thailand. Public highways are also called public roads, especially when part of urban streets. The network spans over 70,000 kilometers across all regions of Thailand. Most are single carriageways. Dual carriageways have frequent u-turn lanes and intersections slowing down traffic. Coupled with the increase in the number of vehicles and the demand for a limited-access motorway, the Thai Government issued a Cabinet resolution in 1997 detailing the motorway construction master plan. Some upgraded sections of highway are being turned into a "motorway", while other motorways are not being built from highway sections.
