Pattaya police to tighten traffic security at Pattaya Marathon 2022

Pattaya —

Pol. Col. Ekkapop Inthawiwat, Deputy Commander of the Chonburi Provincial Police, said on Sunday, July 10th, that Chonburi police were preparing to tighten traffic security for the safety of runners at the 29th Pattaya Marathon 2022.

According to the officers, over 350 police officers and volunteers would be deployed to monitor all four races of the competition. The officer also collaborated with the roadwork contractors who were currently on their job to remove barriers and construction tools from the road to deter potential harm to runners.

Also, to lessen the impact on the residents’ livelihood, the course map was made available on Pattaya Marathon Facebook so that they would know which route to avoid, according to the officer.

It is not yet clear if nightlife will be closed early on the nights of the 15th and 16th as it has in prior years to avoid traffic congestion or partygoers interfering with the race. After midnight on both days however traffic closures will be significant and people could find difficulty getting back to their hotel or home.
