Traffic still bad on railway road


Frustration is boiling over in East Pattaya as traffic along the railroad tracks continues to derail the evening commute.

Once just dusty roads on each side of the rail tracks in East Pattaya, the streets now are full of traffic lights, cars, motorbikes and heavy commercial trucks. Never mind that signs clearly state heavy vehicles are prohibited. Neither drivers nor traffic police seem to care.

Oy, a student near Soi Khao Talo, said the road is very busy from 6-7:30 p.m., leading to arguments as cars queue for long periods. She, like many residents, wants the city or police to do something about the congestion.
