PATTAYA: The first tunnel has officially opened in this beach resort city to help alleviate traffic jams in the Pattaya Klang area.
The four-lane tunnel runs for 420 metres beneath the Pattaya Klang intersection. With an overall length of 1.9 kilometres, the project took three years to build and cost 840 million baht.
A large number of vehicles were waiting to use the tunnel at 10pm Friday.
