True - too bad there are no high seasons anymore.

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.

Yes.

Probably the same complainers who say no infrastructure improvements ever are constructed in Thailand.

I am in Chiang Mai now there must be at least 10 major projects going on in and around the city.

Slow but progressing.

 

The mitigation of the traffic during most of these projects however is poor surprised there are not more accidents.

Anyone know the status of the big drain pipe that was to be laid along the railway road from Khao Talo to Hua Yai.

 

I notice those works were halted almost a year ago, with the railway road for the biggest part now reduced to 1 lane only and the other lanes an unfinished construction site, causing of course a lot of traffic issues.

 

Let's hope the works in Pattaya also don't get halted half way through.

The real problem is the amount of disguting tour buses , baht buses and mini vans clogging the roads..the construction is welcomed in this crumbling city...

They put them all around the edges at The Central Festival Beach Rd to stop the jumpers.

   After they finish they will be back again in a few months to dig things up again to bury the wires.  That, apparently, is what is being done on North Pattaya Road now.

 Digging up again ? And is that going to be a new "phase'  or a continuation of the "final phase" above ? Lost track here on these wire projects because after the phases the wires are still there.

I actually would have said around 30%.  Do you really think it's as low as 15%?  I'm talking pre virus.  Post virus, you could be right.

I was joking, but yesterday went to China Town off 2nd Road.  It was a 'Deserted Village': no coaches; no people; no business.

A news thread today says some businesses estimated to be down 70%, and it's high season.  You very well could be right at 15%, come low season.
