The Pattaya authorities have warned the public to expect traffic problems for the next three months as cable work begins in Central Pattaya next week.

 

The local electrical generating authority is burying power cables in the middle of the road and there will be barriers and closures right up to Sukhumvit Road from the sub-station in Central Pattaya.

 

Work will begin next Tuesday and is expected to last for three months.

 

The electrical authority said the work will cause disruption to businesses and the public that use the area.

 

A meeting was held at the municipal headquarters attended by deputy mayor Apichart Wirapan where concerns were expressed and solutions discussed for the likely problems that will occur in the area.

 

There was some good news - the work is being done to stop power cuts in the area.

 

In total 1,100 meters of cable will be buried at a cost of 75 million baht.

 

Weary Pattaya folk commented online on Sophon Cable's Facebook page that they hoped the work would not drag on over schedule as is the case for the infamous Pattaya tunnel that is still unopened.
