The cabinet on Tuesday approved a plan to build a 4.6-billion-baht observation tower in Bangkok without a call for bids.

Athisit Chainuwat, an assistant to the government spokesman, said the cabinet agreed with the Treasury Department's proposal to bypass bidding for the project due to concern about a possible delay and lack of interest from construction firms.

The 459-metre-high tower will be built on a land plot of the department by the Chao Phraya River in Soi Charoen Nakhon 7 in Khlong San district.
