            Pattaya City Hall – On 9th November, Mr. banlue Kulawanich, MP of Pattaya City held the meeting of the public utility department, with the MPs and the department members. 

            On the progress in finding the solution for the U-turn problem. Studying has been made for long time and the number of the accidents are dangerously increasing,especially at several U-turn points. The discussions had been disputing for hours by the meeting members, before the conclusion was made.

            The hot area is Sukhumvit road, in front of Big-C, south Pattaya. This part of the curved and hilled road is not convenient to U-turn the cars, and also it is much closed to south Pattaya intersection where the drivers can also do the U-turn easier and harmless. There also another U-turn closed to the Big-C one is ‘Soi Kow-ta-lo” Somehow this area will be closed temporary by a road fence.

The U-turns, which will be closed permanently, are;

1. Sukhumvit, Naglue, in front of Isuzu showroom, the road is a typical long straight road and the cars are driven very fast, when some drivers slow down to make a U-turn, they often jam the break or immediately block the cars behind, and occur the accidents. (Ref. from Sawangboriboon Foundation in Naklua )

2. Sukhumvit, South Pattaya, in front of highway police station. It is a very busy area and un organizing traffic police in rush hours.

3. Sukhumvit, Nong-gra-bahk, another busy point with cars and motor bikes rushing and beating each other with so many reasons.

4. Sukhumvit, Ton-gra-bok in front of the Muslim mosque.

“ we don’t want to please the business people who requested to open the temporary road fence in front of their property just for their own benefit, we have to take care of the people who use the road, this is the most important thing we have to do” said Mr. Sanit Boonmahchai.
