Pattaya readies Bali Hai Pier traffic rework

Pattana Boonsawat, Pattaya Deputy Mayor, accompanied by Puttiset Charoenpoj, Director of Traffic and Transport, Pattaya City together with the city working team inspect the area around the Bali Hai Pier where the traffic improvements are planned.

Pattaya officials prepared to re-engineer traffic at Bali Hai Pier again, tearing down some barriers and installing biennial traffic poles and LED signs.

Deputy Mayor Pattana Boonsawat and traffic director Puttiest Charoenpoj joined city engineers in surveying the South Pattaya jetty Feb. 23.

Pattana said existing barriers between the clock tower through to the slope before Bali Hai flyover, will be removed and replaced with biennial traffic poles to reduce accidents.

In addition, larger, LED signs that indicate the proper direction to go will be placed for those traveling to and from Third Road and Jomtien Beach.

While there, the officials gathered opinions from pier users about traffic and parking at the U-turn circle that has been taken over by street thugs who charge money for the free parking.
Pattana promised to look into it.

The city officials measure the spots where the biennial traffic poles would be placed.
