Pattaya - Beach Road construction set for Feb. 13 completion

Recommended Posts

Took my tablet on the morning walk today for an update. The first group of pictures is from Soi 13/4 heading North.

As you can see, the road and grating is complete, guttering coming along slowly, beach path no action. The next group are from Big Mike to Soi 7.

As you can see, there are 3 big holes outside Big Mike which need filling, (although there are always big holes outside there which need filling but I don't think we can blame the construction  for that.) And after that it becomes varied in how far they have got to go. The next group are from Soi 7 to Soi 6.

As you can see, they pipes are in the ground but the road, guttering and path a long way from finishing, in fact as one of the photo's show they are still digging up more road. The last photos show the digging up and crushing of the road up to Soi 3.

I think we can agree that this won't be completed by tomorrow. Perhaps by Songkran. Certainly before my next trip in July.

As an addendum to my walk.l recall back in October a news article about the electrical transformer boxes down near the pumping station needing to be moved before the construction could be completed. Well here we are 4 months on and not much seems to have been done.

Nowhere near to conclusion.  Long stretches of the road surface still to be completed, let alone work below the surface which must be completed before the road surface can be completed.  Also large quanitities of water which somehow will have to be drained away.

You almost seem surprised. And yes, I am that asshole who asked which year 😉

Update on the Beach Rd drainage project. Concrete drain forms in place and ready for use on the north end.

Breaking up the existing pavement is now up to Soi 2.
49550816568_cb620ac631_b.jpg

And digging commences at Soi 3.
49550817343_1e7c4f1c30_b.jpg

They've tied the trees to each other to keep the ones closest to the road from toppling over due to soil erosion.

This is odd. Where's the connecting drain south of Soi 6.
49551547647_6ee1828eea_b.jpg

Gutters and pavement being poured just north of Klang intersection.

Turned my camera to sea and what do I see. Only two parasailers in the air this morning.
49551314846_11eca61bf5_b.jpg

South of Klang, drain covers going in.
49551547332_2eece899af_b.jpg

Around Soi 8, gutter work is pretty much done.
49550816953_bd96a788ce_b.jpg

With the exception of a few places where drain access points are being worked on.
49551314531_62a1957213_b.jpg

Boardwalk across from Mike's Mall is looking very rough and on its last legs.
49550816908_4948df69ed_b.jpg

South of Soi 12, only the curbs need to be installed.
49550816823_ff3fcef52a_b.jpg

New curbs installed up to Royal Garden Plaza. If it were me, I would have installed curbs at least twice as high to keep more of the storm water from flowing onto the footpath.
49551546942_9d4fca8bb8_b.jpg

At the south end, work still needs to be done to connect to the pumping station.
49550816833_e37254027c_b.jpg

Anyone need a used IV bag.
49551314356_14b0bee2a8_b.jpg

Quite the garbage pit on the south end.
49550816748_ccfecfd3fd_b.jpg

No way would I want to step on this access lid.

Thanks, @forcebwithu, that saves me posting the pictures of almost the same that I've just taken!

I am amazed at the speed they are digging and laying the pipes, but the finishing the gutters, and joining it all up seems to be taking forever! Then of course, they have to repair the pavements....

Sorry, didn't mean to scoop you. Can never have too many pics, so let's see what you've got.
