Urban rail project gains traction through public consultation

Urban rail pattaya one Feb 19 2024

Pattaya’s transportation infrastructure took a significant step forward as Buntian Jansuk, Director of the Engineering Office, led the second public consultation for the Red and Purple Line urban railway project. The event, which took place at the Grand Palazzo Hotel on February 15, saw the active participation of Pattaya City Council members, community leaders, residents, along with representatives from local private sector organizations.

The initiative was in response to evolving land use trends in Pattaya and its surrounding areas due to large-scale development projects. Despite these changes, a significant portion of the population still heavily relied on personal vehicles, leading to increased traffic congestion and air pollution due to the limited and unstandardized public transportation system. In 2019, Pattaya City initiated a comprehensive study followed by the engagement of consulting firms in 2023 to evaluate the feasibility, design, and environmental impact of expanding the rail system in Phase 2.

The primary focus was to study the suitability and design framework details for the Purple Line (Nongprue – Thappraya Intersection) rail project, or alternative public transportation systems. The consultation also emphasized studying feeder routes that integrated with the main public transportation system, aligning with Pattaya City’s urban transportation development plan.

Additionally, the consultation presented the Red Line project (Dolphin Roundabout– Thappraya Intersection – Sports Stadium) on the same day, sharing route selection results, initial conceptual designs, and preliminary components, while seeking community feedback and suggestions. This collaborative approach aimed to ensure that the project’s design and implementation met the community’s needs and contributed to overall enhancements in Pattaya’s transportation system.
