Unable to solve flooding crisis, Pattaya cuts holes in Beach Road promenade

image.png

PATTAYA:--Unable to resolve the city’s long-running flooding problems, Pattaya is now demolishing parts of the Beach Road promenade to let storm runoff drain onto the beach.

 

Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome on Oct. 2 ordered sanitation and engineering workers to cut another swath through the sidewalk at the Hard Rock Hotel and opposite Soi 2 to ease Beach Road flooding.

 

Of course, the water drains improperly on to the beach, cutting large trenches into the newly restored shoreline.

The latest orders follow earlier demolitions at soi 7, 9, 10, 12 and 13.

 

City officials said the sidewalks will be rebuilt once rainy season ends.

Are they sure .! By the time it flows onto the beach it will be foul which will make the newly made over bits of beach equally foul and disgusting ..

Of course they will be, and who will get the contract to do it. Then, same same next year, rip up the pavements, let the filthy water pollute the beach, fill in pavement, rebuild the beach......Dig up pavement, pollute the beach...rebuild........Wow! a brilliant cash cow for years to come.

Why do Thai's never consulate an engineer to solve problems. They just keep making mistake after mistake. Either to proud to seek real help or to corrupt to care

You don't make money if you do it right the first time?

All the cigarette butts dropped in the streets will end up on the beach.

It's in their interest for it not to work, means repeat business, that's Thai logic it seems

I think they keep asking the same (theoretical) engineers from KMIT faculty of sand castles who keep coming up with the same solutions.

 

Winning!

I am an engineer and know the solution is very simple but will make the people who agreed the work on the beach and beach road look bad.  There is a dolution that would leave the beach  and sand unpoluted and easy to do but Thais will not adk a farang to help even when that help would be willing given for free.
