Boats cleared ahead of army’s march onto Bali Hai Pier

Threatened with fines of up to 10,000 baht and up to three years in prison if they didn’t remove their boats and temporary offices from public land, owners finished evacuating Bali Hai Pier on Oct. 31 before the military moved in heavy equipment to clean up the mess on Nov.1 as promised.

PATTAYA:-- As promised, the army descended onto Bali Hai Pier Tuesday, ensuring speedboat owners moved their trailered watercraft as ordered and overseeing the start of a massive cleanup and renovation.

 

Several hundred soldiers blocked off access to the jetty’s large parking area early Nov. 1 as tractors with scraper blades began removing muck, oil and grime that accumulated over the years. Meanwhile, jackhammers pounded away at the boat ramp adjacent to the parking area, which will force speedboat owners looking to put their vessels back in the water to go elsewhere.

It appeared Oct. 31 that the hundreds of boat owners had complied with the military’s order to relocate their parked vessels before the month’s end. Pickup trucks and tractors were seen throughout the day hauling away 100-150 boats to lots on Soi Kophai and in Jomtien Beach.

 

Apart from the boats, tents that operators had used as their temporary offices to sell tickets also were removed.

this is an area of scenic beauty and look at the mess they left behind, embedded oil in the ground that will take a lot of money to clean up, they left a health hazard and will pay absolutely nothing towards the cleaning, maybe now the local authorities will see the potential this place has and develop it properly after it has been sanitised

"this is an area of scenic beauty and look at the mess they left behind, embedded oil in the ground that will take a lot of money to clean up, they left a health hazard and will pay absolutely nothing towards the cleaning,"

 

A very common occurence arond Pattaya. Businesses just take over public footpaths, roadways and use the space. A couple of garages and motorbike shops near me and also a few on 3rd road have made a disgraceful mess of the public areas.

Jomtien where the same issues will reoccur

 

Not if they stop them building slip ways...

Also make sure they can not get their trailers on the beach.
