Pattaya Beach rebuild set for year-end completion

PATTAYA:--The Marine Department reconfirmed that the rebuilding of Pattaya Beach will be completed by year-end.

 

Former Prime Minister Anand Panyarachun, flanked by Department Deputy Commissioner Somchai Sumanatkajonkul and Rattanachai Sutidechanai, the ex-Pattaya councilman who now advises the Tourism and Sports Ministry, announced Aug. 23 the completion of the project will be a landmark for Thailand.

 

The 500-million-baht-plus project was begun in 2011 after a warning by environmental experts that Pattaya’s sandy shoreline could be wiped away within five years.

 

Various patch jobs delayed the inevitable, but multiple missteps by both Pattaya City Hall and its expensive consultants repeatedly put the project even further behind schedule.

 

In early March work resumed after a 15-month suspension and again was quickly halted when, again, the sand used didn’t match. The Pattaya Marine Department finally ruled that the sand was good enough and, after a few days in the sun, bleached to a color close enough to Pattaya’s native sand.
