Following the partial closure Aug. 5-6, the PEA will close one lane again on Aug. 10-11, 18-24 and 24-27 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The controversial U-turn on Sukhumvit Road outside Makro Cash & Carry will be reopened during the upcoming Walking Street Food and Drinks Festival.

The city also announced at an Aug. 7 traffic-planning meeting that the controversial, and now closed, U-turn on Sukhumvit Road outside Makro Cash & Carry will be reopened during the upcoming Walking Street Food and Drinks Festival and other planned events.

Four people, including two 14-year-old students, were killed at the U-turn since November. After a botched attempt to seal it off, Pattaya finally permanently blocked the turnaround in June.

Deputy Mayor Ronakit Ekasingh said that before it is reopened, the city will install new lights and add a CCTV camera to monitor traffic.

Pattaya Walking Street Business Operators, Pattaya Police and members of the Pattaya City Special Task Unit assemble at the opening ceremony to allow cars into Walking Street all day and all night.
