Regarding the postponed installation of traffic islands on Thepprasit Road, a Move Forward party (MFP) MP-elect filed a complaint with the mayor of Pattaya on behalf of local people.
Mr. Yodchai Puengporn, an MP-elect from the MFP who represents Chonburi’s Nongprue sub-district, informed Pattaya mayor Poramese Ngampiches of the construction’s obstruction of the entry and exit of Thepprasit Road yesterday, May 22nd, which consequently caused significant traffic jams throughout the area. He claimed that the impeded roadwork also annoyed the locals who lived in the region under his jurisdiction. In order to expedite the project as fast as possible, Mr. Yodchai said that he was forced to make an urgent complaint to the mayor.
According to Poramese, who spoke about the project, the construction of traffic islands was a component of a plan to enhance Thepprasit Road and the surroundings around it in order to make room for future underground electrical connections and prevent the need for re-excavation.According to him, Thepprasit Road accident rates were greatly impacted by the traffic islands. The absence of median strips, traffic lights, and emergency lights in the area had made accidents common, according to Poramese.
Poramese continued by saying that polls were taken before construction to get feedback from the general public and businesses on both sides of the road, and the majority of respondents had concurred.Overall, the complaints had been accepted and the mayor had rectified the issues. He assured the inhabitants that he would look into the situation and try to improve relations with them.
