Existing sidewalks under the Bali Hai interchange at Third Road will be demolished and rebuilt to become asphalt walkways 2.5-3 meters wide from the end of Third Road to under the interchange, a distance of about 400 meters.

At the curve leading into the entrance of Bali Hai, public parking facilities will be built and another traffic lane added.

Finally, the Athajinda ring road at the base of Pratamnak Hill will be rebuilt as a concrete road 10 meters wide and public parking added.
