A fact finding seminar was held at the Pullman Pattaya Hotel to discuss transport infrastructure improvements for the resort over the following 16 years.

 

Among the 120 participants there were investors from China, Korea and Thailand as well as a team from the British Embassy, said Green Line project manager Pongtawee Lertpanyawit. 

 

The Green Line Tramway will connect the high speed train station in Pattaya with Bali Hai and include 13 stations about 650-700 meters apart.

It will be elevated at a height of 18 meters mostly utilizing the center of existing roads, said local official Pramote Thapthim who chaired the meeting. 

 

Investment is being sought for building in the sum of 16.4 billion baht and operating costs of 10.4 billion.

 

Pramote said that Pattaya has exploded in size due to a great influx of people and tourists in recent years and improvements in transport were needed. 

 

A three phase plan has been initiated to run from now until 2036 to address this issue as part of the government's Eastern Economic Corridor initiative.

 

There are four main components of this and 15 lesser components.

 

The meeting heard principally about the Green Line plans regarding its design and environmental impact. 

 

Pongtawee said interest from the private sector in investment, both Thai and foreign, had been good.

To transport who exactly, pray tell me?  🤨

People from Bangkok...they can shop at one of many malls  there and then walk onto the elevated train whisking them to  more shopping mall heaven  with a sea view.

 

I notice  one of the stops is called "Passport Office"

maybe finally will bring customers to the flailing "Avenue" Mall  assuming the passport office stays there.

Owned by the Chinese for the Chinese!

Yes, and all that will be left to do is buy up all the cheap properties around the stations, then have the authorities make baht buses illegal.  Chinese Business Style 101.   

 

More "Zero Baht" tourism for Thailand.

A link to an incident in Germany in 2011 involving a private 737 has been removed. In these days of heightened LM laws we need to be very careful.

 

EDIT and a post "not questioning moderation" has also been removed. Common international knowledge, agreed, but we must operate in Thailand.

The German company ended up getting paid, in quite unusual circumstances, which you will be able to find by doing a quick Google search.
