Yesterday, May 22nd, Pattaya City's Mayor, Mr. Poramase Ngampiches, led a cleanup operation at Laem Bali Hai Pier in South Pattaya. This was organized to remove abandoned and sunken cargo ships that have been a blight on Pattaya's scenic coast.

 

The city had previously instructed the owners of these shipwrecks to clear them but their lack of response led to the city's intervention. Environmental officers were mobilized to clear out the debris, which included old wood, plastic buoys, and the shipwrecks.

 

Mayor Poramase highlighted the negative impact of these abandoned ships on the coast's appearance and mentioned they also breach legal standards. He stated the waste at the pier came from two places: some was washed ashore during storms, while the rest was discarded by individuals showing a lack of civic responsibility.

 

Mayor Poramase called on those using the Laem Bali Hai Pier to assist with keeping it clean. He stressed that the city would enforce rules to manage this public space effectively and safeguard Pattaya's status as a tourist destination.

Obviously a little more persuasion is required.

Dear Mayor, please place public trash cans along all walkways and public spaces, so people can conveniently discard unwanted material. The only street in Pattaya that has public trash cans is Beach Road. Please also empty the trash can daily or whenever they get full and make sure they large enough to contain all the garbage that might deposited into them.

Hope they charge the boat owners for clearing them up.

 

They are not boats  they are the remnants of the failed floating dock project from years and years ago.

Weren't those blue-barrel floating docks built fairly recently? I seem to remember reading about them here.

 

yes  failed after the first big storm  that caused damage to a few speed boats whilst docked there

after that all (most)  the speedboat operators refused to use it and it quickly fell into total disrepair..eventually they dragged all the debris onto shore where it remains to this day and built

the  replacement concrete conventional pier/dock.

 

Wonder when they will get round to the other Bali Hai eyesore ???

Sorry, I was misled by this sentence:

The city had previously instructed the owners of these shipwrecks to clear them

No need to apologise,  the article is misleading  I remember reading a few months back that there was one shipwreck there  but the photo in the article  is not of that shipwreck.

The pix in the new AN are rarely directly related to the news article.

There are ild Ferries where they load the cargo boats to Koh Larn
