Pattaya underpass expected to be ready end of May

Officials connected to the building of the 1.9km Cantral Pattaya underpass are confident everything will be ready by the end of May 2017.

Contractors and representatives from the Department of Rural Roads were holding a meeting at the Grand Soleil Hotel in Pattaya yesterday, reported STV Pattaya.

They announced that the project – at a cost of 800 million baht – will be delivered as per the contract though it is several months behind schedule. February was originally mooted for the opening after construction started back in 2014.

All of the major infrastructure of the tunnel is complete and there are just a few matters of surfacing, signage and lighting to finish, said Rachan Janthorn of the department of Rural Roads.

No opening date was given in the Sophon Cable TV story on Facebook but it was stated that the building of a bridge for handicapped people would not delay the opening of the tunnel as had been previously feared.

Both locals and holidaymakers alike will be happy to finally see the tunnel open, after the problems it has caused for traffic moving both ways.

I wouldn’t hold your breath though, the key word coming out of the meeting was ‘expected”, which sounds more hopeful than certain to me.

Fingers crossed.

    If I could bet on this underpass NOT being ready by the deadline I would make a lot of money and would use it to purchase a “learning English book for dummies.” I would pass it on to Popeye and that other degenerate scum who tortures the English language daily on this site

            Grammar is important. Capital letters are the difference between “helping you Uncle Jack off a horse”, and “helping your uncle jack off a horse”. And we all know which one you’d prefer old man. HA HA HA!

          • Rhubarb Crumble

            “your uncle” in both cases. Sorry!

          • Brendan’s Boys

            Capitalise a kinship name when it immediately precedes a personal name or is used alone, in place of a personal name. If someone is named after, it is correct to capitalise.

          • Rhubarb Crumble

            Only 50% of the time though obviously!

      • Troll Killer

        Gumble, we all wish your father would have settled for the bløw job.

          Or given her a Pearl necklace instead

      • Rhubarb Crumble

        “you’re” (subjunctive, hence the apostrophe (to mark a missing letter)) an idiot. Your (belonging to you) brain is not too good (too is probably beyond your grasp)

    • popeye the sailorman

      my english is perfect you arszehole dont mistake me for the ESQUIRE a.k.a GUMBLE

      • Charles Baht Esquire.

        who i this Gumble that torments you he must have left you in a raging mental out of control state much like your poor busted asz pommy drunkard life

  • amazingthailand

    • popeye the sailorman

      think yur right…I am surprised there are no toll booths to pay for this …might install some later EH !!!???

      • amazingthailand

        Only tollway for farangs

        • popeye the sailorman

          could be we will have to wait and see !!! what if one has Thai driving licence I would NOT have to pay

  • popeye the sailorman

    if it is NEW why does resurfacing have to take place???

    • taff

      In the article above it says surfacing not resurfacing, unless you have read it from a different article, usually surfacing is one of the last jobs done so it looks nice and clean for the opening.

      • popeye the sailorman

        sorry read it wrong I got involved in reading the Esquires stupid comments

        • taff

          He does everybody’s head in, I can understand the mistake, he’s just winding people up all the time, I think he gets a kick out of people he can make angry on the site, best thing to do is not bite and then wind him up.

    • Bitcoin

      Cos it´s years since the construction started and the old surface has cracked

      • popeye the sailorman

    • popeye the sailorman

      think your going to be right with your prediction !!!

  • Ken Anderson

    ”There are just a few matters of surfacing, signage and lighting to finish.”
    Why worry? Most of the roads around Pattaya have very poor surfaces, and even if they complete this operation it will simply break up and become a mess, just like everywhere else within a few weeks.
    Signage, that is no excuse either, those that are actually capable of reading road signs will not take any notice of them, so why bother?
    Lighting. Thai drivers do not need that either, they seldom seem to look where they are going, just adopting a driving philosophy of moving forward as fast as possible at all times regardless of what else is happening.

    • Charles Baht Esquire.

      Would you like gold trimming and gold sign post to shut you miserable sad sack whinging fat creten poms up . I bet if they were handing out free Chang beers you old goat Poms would down there on grand opening day faster a blow fly too a turd quicker then sh*t of a Shovel

      • Troll Killer

        For those of you without Gumble Translate wondering what the fck this idiot just said…

        “Would you like to post a gold sign on my fat miserable sack?
        I’ll hand you all a free Chang on grand opening day and a fast blow jøb, flying in on a turd then sh*tting on my shovel.

        • Charles Baht Esquire.

          You ungrateful fat dribbling and slobbering old beer gutted english pom slobs you feeble f*ckwits didn’t contribute to any taxes that payed for this tunnel besides your daily criticism actually you ungrateful feeble fleas should be banned from using this great engineering feat .

          • James Whitton

    • James Whitton

      Why do you bother living there then jandy

  • Tony Akhurst

    Ill say 2018

  • soidog

    Fitting the lighting might take a while when the tools are a wet dishcloth (to feel if the lecky is getting through) a Smartie lid with a ‘P’ on it, and a broken Ewbank.
