Road construction continues to be a menace to residents and tourists

Pattaya-News-4-N-Jan-24-01-Pratumnak-ove

 

PATTAYA:--There seems to be no end in sight as road digging continues on practically every road in Pattaya. There is little or no concern for the inconveniences of the residents and tourists, and the disrupting of desperately needed businesses during the busy high season, covering both the New Year and the Chinese New Year holidays.
 

Receiving a constant stream of complaints, reporters inspected the construction site in the Pratamnak Road area around Kasetsin Soi 5, at the top of the big Buddha hill, and saw that it was in a sorry state of affairs.

 

The contractors closed Rajchawaroon Road leading to the Royal Varuna Yacht Club and diverted all traffic through smaller sois to exit at Soi Kasetsin 5. Cars, motorbikes and tour busses were all scrambling to beat each other through the traffic, causing utter confusion and snarls, clouds of dust and dirt.

Pattaya is a city with the constant infrastructure construction and upgrades that other, similar-sized cities the world over require. Digging up roads to do this is a necessity, just as it is everywhere else in the world. I don't see this expansion and ultimate long-term improvement as being the problem here. It's the lack of proper planning for traffic management and the lack of involvement by the police in that management. TiT.

Do they also have to replace the whole drainsystem in other city's every few years???

 

Where i am from we did that once 50 years ago and they are still fine...

They can't really wait, once rainy season comes, they have to stop.

 

As long as they do a proper fix and not a 6-month-job, I'll be happy to put up with it.

What I do not understand is the deliberate and unnecessary closure of roads where nothing is happening, ie going down 2nd Road one is not allowed to turn right up Pattaya Klang !!! and for no apparent reason other than to make things more chaotic than they need to be 😞

I live in that area... It's been going on for long in excess of 6 months. I feel so sorry for businesses in the area. I'm wondering, will they ever clean up construction materials when finished. The mess is everywhere, now working on top end of pratumnak rd.

Envious Farang understand nothing.

This is a very successful employment policy invented by an ingenious city hall. It's also a perfect measure to improve road safety by slowing speed down and saving speed limit signs.

And the second they have it ready, the next crew comes and rips it all open because nobody bothered to plan the projects. <deleted>-up & brewery.
