A large scale project to bury electrical cables along North Road in Pattaya has now begun according to the Provincial Electricity Authority.
Work began on February 19 where the director of the PEA Pattaya office Niruth Charoenchob and city mayor Anan Charoenchasri were both on hand to watch the commencement of the work which began at the Dolphin Roundabout.
If the work goes to plan officials estimate it should be complete by the start of June.
Mayor Anan said that officials carried out numerous checks as heavy machinery and supplies were transported to the worksite to make sure traffic flow was not being affected.
In an effort to make sure work proceeds smoothly mayor Anan has requested that people no park along North Road which could possibly obstruct crews from carrying out their work and thus prolong the project.
Work is being carried out in a similar fashion as to the work carried out last year on Central Road where crews are closing off one 200-meter section of road at a time in an effort to minimise traffic congestion.
Safety measures are being put in place including barriers and warning lights to prevent accidents at night time.
The North Road project is part of a much larger project to upgrade the electrical systems in several cities here in Thailand including Chiang Mai, Hat Yai and Nakhon Ratchasima for which the government has allocated a budget of 11.7-billion-baht.
