Our plan is to refurbish and repair the pavement along the entire road, including full painting and a new art design for the street to give the area a fresh, new look.” The mayor continued.

Walking street needs more than whitewash.

Can't see anything being done there, but they do occasionally close parts of it off to do some digging. I drive up "Walking" St regularly in the wee hours. The road is completely broken up. You couldn't walk along it without twisting your ankles at every step, so calling it Walking St is a joke. There are no pavements. I can't see they've changed anything. Several buildings sea side have been demolished, the rest look like a bomb hit them. It's a total write off. 

Reading the OP would have been an idea rather than just complaining about the pavement's condition...

"“We also received budgetary permission from the Pattaya City Council for an overall footpath/road renovation for Walking Street. Unfortunately, in the process of moving cables underground, portions of the road were damaged and some areas are in poor condition. Our plan is to refurbish and repair the pavement along the entire road..."

Clearly holding back on the fact that the ocean side will be demolished and replaced for an extended boulevard.
Entertainment licenses will NOT be renewed and plans are made to "move" the zone to Soi Buakhao.
Bali Hai will be transformed with an added recreation park and cruise terminal.

Wishful thinking? Let's see.

And what of the many places that are not really part of the nightlife scene..... from The Pattaya Beer Garden,  Tankay Seafood and similar restaurants, The 7-11s, Nang Nual and A few Kebab Shops.....

Sure, that may have been the plan. But what's the point of doing it now? You don't start a major refurb by building pavements.

 

1 nobody can walk there while they're building in any case.

2 the pavements will all be dug up again in the process of surrounding work.

 

It's a joke. Some of the clubs have made a half hearted attempt at reopening, but it just means a long tail back at chucking out/up time. It's dead, passed on, gone over to the other side. RIP. The mayor's avin a larf.

Yesterday I had a wander round Walking St and surrounding sois and it is slowly returning to what it is famed for: bars with sexy girls waiting to take their customers money. The go-gos, including those owned by the Chinese and Russians, will have to wait a while longer but all together Walking Street has enough collective financial clout to repel any notions of gentrification or becoming a family oriented destination.

The mayor can tidy up the pavements, stop sewage spewing into the sea and clear away the overhead cables but no more than that, please.

Good news. I hope you are right.

 

What I would like to see is easy access from the north. And not stinky. 555  Now that would be a major improvement. So you don't have to risk your life to access the Street.

The transformation will be a gradual affair. As the mayor hinted that Walking Street will be for "tourists of any age day and night". As I know, no new bar licenses have been approved and existing licenses will allow to run out and not be renewed.

water drainage system into the sea and have partnered with businesses on the ocean side

Businesses on the ocean side!!!!! 


Aren't these illegal businesses, I read all buildings on the ocean side of walking street were built illegally.


Why would City Hall partner with criminals?
