Dangerous U Turn on Sukhumvit Road in front of Makro in Pattaya to be permanently closed


Officials from Pattaya city hall voted this morning to permanently close a U Turn in Pattaya responsible for dozens of accidents and several deaths on Sukhimvit Road across from Makro in Central Pattaya.

A well known British expat had been killed at the intersection several months ago and the Pattaya News has reported on the dangers of this intersection several times.

This U Turn is often used for people to race across the street without warning cutting across from the Makro grocery store, causing accidents and collisions.

The closure takes place effective April first.
