The inconvenience isn't quite over......

 

On a rare occasion I want to get to South Pattaya in the truck, I was thinking, no problems!

 

Twats, they have the tunnel shut today, I don't reacll being warned about this! You can imagine the traffic and the argy-bargy this caused. Who knows why what-for, but what do thousands of drivers matter!

 

Saw it mentioned on another board they were shutting the underpass down today due to a planned power outage in the area. Never saw a news report of the same though.

Three years was a pleasant surprise, but they haven't done messing with you yet!

On a Friday afternoon, when weekend traffic is upon us, Tai is queuing from Sukhumvit to 2nd, and I want to get to Klang, no problems, get onto Sukhumvit and straight down and left. But no, they close the whole sliproad and main turn road into Klang!

 

What are people supposed to do who have got off the motorway and want to get into Pattaya?

Went through the underpass last night and noticed only about 70% of the lighting now works, and the previously mentioned problems with the road surface seems to be getting worse. While not yet crumbling, the road surface has many dips to it that indicate a failure of the subsurface. Pretty sad statement on Thai construction quality given the the underpass has only been open a little more than three months.

I thought there were some road works on Klang this AM, as it was tailed back to Sukhumvit and stationary.

Nope, just a coach double parked and 2 others trying to turn right, same spot into the #6 alley after Foodland, what the hell is there down there?

IIRC, the original underpass project included plans for a handicap accessible walk over bridge. Noticed about six months ago they had started construction of that overpass. Until today I hadn't thought about taking pics, and as it turns out there was no rush to do so. Considering they've been working on it for over six months, not much progress to show for the effort.

 

Walkway on the Father Ray Foundation side of Suk.

More progress to date on the East side of Suk.
