Gridlock returns to Sukhumvit as Pattaya tunnel closed for bridge construction

PATTAYA:--Pattaya endured days of traffic chaos again as parts or all of Sukhumvit Road and the Central Road bypass tunnel were closed for construction of a wheelchair-accessible pedestrian bridge.

 

Traffic inspector Pol. Maj. Aruth Sapanon led officers to the northern end of the tunnel zone Sept. 3 as they prepared to close the tunnel at 8 a.m. for the day-long work to raise and connect the deck of the new overpass near the Redemptorist School for Persons with Disabilities.

 

A 400-ton crane truck was anchored on the traffic island lifts the 80-ton, 43-meter-long prefabricated superstructure onto supports on each side of the busy highway by school. The bridge, equipped with elevators on each side, is expected to open at year-end.

 

Engineers also used the period to remove the old bridge in front of Pattaya School No. 5.

This was reported last week/2 weeks ago and the dates in the story give the 6th as the last day of closures so the story is a bit on the late side........

Wheelchair accessible means food carts blocking the way.Happened in Jakarta until the army moved in with cranes and jettisoned all the vendors stuff by dropping it on the road  and arrested all the vendors,

Coming soon to Pattaya Thai AND Pattaya Nua, from the team that raked in billions and ruined scores of businesses rather than build an overpass.

Don't they mean motorcycle-accessible bridge? ?
