Is the monorail still planned to run next to the beach.... thereby destroying the view from every single hotel or travelling down 2nd road is it? Looks like a cheap build, and all the brown envelopes... might be an interesting outcome....

"Neo-Pattaya": Mayor announces 80 billion baht investment to make city more liveable

Pattaya's strongarm mayor has announced his plans for the next couple of years to turn Pattaya into Neo-Pattaya.

 

This will turn Pattaya into a megapolis that is both a great place for tourism and for residents.

 

Sontaya Khunpluem has 80 billion baht in funds and potential investment to make his vision for the city - at present largely deserted due to the pandemic - into a reality come 2022.

 

INN reported 7 major projects and costs:

 

1. Work with civil engineers on 110 kms of drains to ease flooding by up to 80%. Cost: 17.8 billion baht.

 

2. Trip capacity to cope with sewage. Cost 750 million baht.

 

3. Monorail to meet the high speed train, three tram lines with 34 kilometers of routes. Cost: 50 billion (raised through PPP investment)

 

4. Infrastructure improvements for IT. Cost 500 million baht.

 

5. Na Klua market improvements to be completed by 2022. Cost 600 million.

 

6. Bali Hai/ Walking Street plans (as announced by Manager yesterday). Cost 4 billion baht.

 

7. "Neo-Koh Larn" project. Cost 250 million baht. 

 

Meanwhile, mayor Sontaya also said that tourists from Russia and China will help Pattaya’s post COVID-19 recovery.

 

The resort will entice tourists from locations such as Moscow, St Petersburg, Shanghai and Guangzhou - areas with low numbers of COVID-19 infections - while tourists from India would not be considered at the present moment due to the high number of infections.

3. Monorail to meet the high speed train, three tram lines with 34 kilometers of routes. Cost: 50 billion (raised through PPP investment). 

The company that wins the bid to build the rain/tram lines would no doubt recoup their costs via a long term lease with the city to maintain/operate those lines and collect all the revenue from them.

The other 30 billion in projects would no doubt be split between the 3 levels of government and spread out over a couple years. It's not like Pattaya is suddenly going to spend 80 billion in a single year's budget.

This is probably all part of the belt and road development and Thailand will fall victim to the debt/trap diplomacy in which the Chinese excel. Expect all those Chinese contractors to arrive in the next few years

 In Denmark they build a 110 km long tram line including stations , control centera and trains for around 20 billions...baht.. and that with expensive danish manpower, so wonder if the trains and stations are covered in gold!!

to precise that it is Baht, so more comparative.

I think several Million BAHT -- to build lodging for the homeless, jobless, moneyless & foodless ( hungry people ) should be a higher priority . Central Pattaya beach reclamation was a success -

but the drainage work was a total FAILURE .....

just look at the " washout " at the beach during the last rainstorm .....

Please look out & take care the POOR JOBLESS PEOPLE .

Ask your fearless leader to invest a few of his billions into a new Casino along with his Chinese friends like they did in Cambodia. I am sure you have his ear.

Nope. I just saw Prayut on the news - he still has both his ears.

I hope not... a loop second road, north road, sukhumvit, south road...with a spur to rail station, would make a lot of sense imo...and make the sois where there are stops into promenades leading to the beach would be way more sensible to me, and yes keep the seaside road from being overwhelmed by a BTS type structure hanging over it
