A delegation of operators in Walking Street who went to see the mayor were told why the burying of the unsightly cables on the famed red light street was taking so long. 

 

Mayor Sontaya Khunpluem said that the problems concern pipes laid by the Ministry of Science and Technology 20 years ago. 

 

Pipes that he admitted were totally pointless. 

 

The electrical authorities were going to use these to bury the cables meaning that the road would not have to be dug up. 

 

But this had created a legal mess as City Hall were the owners of the pipes and the electrical authorities would have had to pay compensation to use them. 

 

It now looks as though the pipes will be taken out and the wires buried as per the original plan meaning digging up the street. Work is expected to proceed in November.

 

Walking Street association chief Naris Petcharat was also updated on plans for the beautification of the street including its footpaths and a promised "beautiful roof frame". Exactly what form this would take was unclear from the Sophon report. 

 

A beachside walk is also in the offing as well as landscaping of the South Pattaya area including the Bali Hai port area where recent reports suggested that multi million baht work some years ago had been a monumental waste of money.

 

Sontaya said there were still plans and studies to be completed before he could be more specific.

You mean they will dig up the streets when there are pipes already there because there is a 'legal' issue?  ***********!

Paying compensation to use them on one hand, and saving the cost of digging up the road on the other hand, only creates a legal mess in a banana republic.   And then we gonna have a legal
