Wow - not even sure of the location. A project consisting of shops, pubs, restaurants.... "expected to be completed by April" ?  Better start soon ! 🙏

Wow, just what Pattaya needs. more shops, pubs and restaurants. A pier that will sit out in dirty, smelly water, that should make the tourist come back.!

They will make pattaya another place in Thailand that people do not want to go to. People come to see walking street, a friend was just down there and walking street very busy but the bars no customers, one bar has a special on three bottles of San Miguel for 120 B thats cost. They had no takers

What tourists would really like to see is clean water, rubbish free beaches, no traffic jams, less crime and a hassle free holiday. Extra people doesn't quite cut it. 

I can not disagree, I have drank a drink with  and learned many tourist don't understand much more than where is the cold beer and the hot ladies.

Wow, great idea -- clean up a polluted river by throwing soap in it!  Brilliant!

The light rail system will take years to complete and cause massive traffic problems through out construction, once completed will the traffic problems be reduced with less parking and narrower roads.

Jomtien, South Pattaya, North Pattaya and Koh Larn are still considered safe, he said, but the decline in quality is worrying and worsening.....

Pattaya’s main wastewater-treatment plant is on Soi Nongyai, which can process up to 80,000 cu. meters daily. A proposed second phase would bring total capacity up to 130,000 cu. meters a day and currently is undergoing environmental assessment.

A second plant serving the Jomtien Beach area is located on Soi Wat Boonkan­chanaram and receives about 20,000 cu. meters of water a day, but has the capacity to handle 63,000 cu. meters daily. https://pattayacityhome.com/news/clearing-pattaya-shorewater

 

They say they are "Studying" the wastewater problem and looking at solutions.  Possible that the new storm drains along beach road being installed now will help about 1.5 meters in diameter.  It is sad that the Pattaya has ignored this problem for many years.  Jomtien can handle much more wastewater, but how to get it there

No matter how much they try to change it, bar girls built Pattaya, and the bar girls will continue as the main draw.

These days overweight, tattooed up phone addicted air heads are not much of a draw either, nor the prices they want for mechanical activity.

Yep, a few more malls and mega projects.  Westernize it without the appropriate infrastructure.  Make it a third world approximation of a modern city and remove any charm at all.  Why visit Thailand at all? 

 

Of course I'm a dinosaur.  Lived in Thailand for 3 years, forty years ago.  One year in BKK in an old 3-room wood house in a quiet compound in the Pratunam area.  At about 1,200 Baht a month we had electricity, cold water and window screens (wooden shutters, no glass).  Still had to sleep under a mosquito net. Crude but charming and safe.  That place is now underneath the rear tower of the Palladium World Shopping mall, near the Indra Hotel.
