Pattaya motorists complained that poor planning and communication about ongoing roadwork on Third Road is creating traffic chaos.
Traffic came to a standstill as workers burying power and communications lines laid conduits across the busy thoroughfare.
The work is part of the Provincial Electricity Authority’s long-running project to submerge ugly wires across the city. The roadwork was previously announced, but frustrated motorists said it wasn’t communicated enough.
Drivers also groused about a lack of traffic police to redirect vehicles to detours.
Everyone stuck in gridlock moaned that city hall and the PEA need to do a better job of publicizing roadwork times and detours as well as manage traffic.
