Hua Hin’s new road system is scrapped after causing chaos for drivers

The start of the Hua Hin’s planned new one way road system suffered a major setback when authorities were forced to halt the trial of the new road system after just one day. Commuters and road users were left confused by the addition of new road markings on Sra Song Road, close to the market and the entrance to the Royal Pavilion Hotel. Despite new road markings being installed, some road users were either not aware of the markings or chose to ignore them altogether.

It had been planned that drivers approaching the market would instead have to make a U-turn outside the Esso Petrol station on Phetkasem Road. However, this caused considerable congestion throughout the area as chaos ensued prior to the arrival of traffic marshals who were sent to try and direct traffic and assist confused drivers. In addition to the problems the new road layout caused for drivers, many local market traders were up in arms that road markings had meant that people had difficulty reaching the market and consequently traders were angry that businesses were suffering. The markings on the road in question were returned to their original state and traffic flow was back to normal.
