Replacing the old barrio consisting of tires and plastic cones with a more permanent and significantly longer concrete barrier.

Many drivers were preforming the illegal manoeuvre so they could cut through the city by traveling from Soi Bongkot to Soi Korphai which leads to Third Road, officials said that this was leading to problems with traffic flow, especially during rush hour.

The new concrete barriers now run from South Road Soi 5 all the way along to Pattaya City Resort.

The barrier which have now been in place for almost one month are said to have improved traffic flow and eased congestion during rush hour.
