City pledges better maintenance of road lines, traffic lights

Vittaya Yoondorn
City engineers will repaint traffic lines throughout Pattaya yearly and fix broken traffic lights within 30 minutes as the city moves to comply with new national guidelines.
Following a Jan. 21 meeting in Bangkok to evaluate local government’s management of public facilities and infrastructure, Pattaya’s Department of Strategy and Budget Planning met at city hall Jan. 25 to review how city departments can better maintain bridges, roads and traffic signals.
Surasak Janthrasombun, head of Technology and Information for the office, called representatives of city departments to evaluate the criteria and determine minimum goals in managing public infrastructure.
Engineering Department officers noted that street signs, lines dividing traffic lanes and signals faced the highest rate of wear, with street signs, for example, showing wear after six months.
Thus, engineers said, the department will conduct inspections of traffic signs and road lines annually. Furthermore, roads themselves will be inspected on a regular basis to determine if frequent flooding has caused damage.
When it comes to lights, broken traffic signals and burnt-out lights will be replaced within 30 minutes of being reported, engineers pledged.
