PATTAYA:--The Provincial Electricity Authority will begin the final phase of its project to bury power and utility wires under North Road in March, with more traffic congestion to continue into 2020.

 

Pattaya Deputy Mayor Banlue Kullavanijaya and PEA Assistant Gov. Nukul Tupanitch briefed city officials, residents and business owners Jan. 30 about the 211-million-baht project that will span the entire length of North Road from Sukhumvit Road to the Dolphin Roundabout.

 

Preparations will get underway Feb. 19 with the installation of barriers, lights and signs on the inbound and outbound center lanes of the busy thoroughfare. Actual digging will begin March 11.

 

The work will see 115-kilovolt cables and 22-kilovolt distributors buried under the center of North Road. The initial phase will cause the most bottlenecks, as heavy machinery is needed for two or three weeks to drill holes in the roadway.

 

However, parts of the road will continue to be closed for another year, with workers closing segments of lanes during off hours to reduce congestion. At the end of the wire-submersion, empty utility poles will be removed.
