Soi Siam Country Club residents reiterated their unhappiness over the reconstruction of the East Pattaya street after the announcement its completion would be delayed indefinitely.
Residents and business owners have voiced their frustration to reporters about the roadwork, detours and inconvenience related to installation of new drainage pipes and resurfacing of the road that began Jan. 25, 2016 and was set for completion on April 4 this year.
Nongprue Mayor Mai Chaiyanit on May 17 apologized to East Pattaya residents, acknowledging that the schedule had slipped and construction had been halted. He said that due to flooding, heavy machinery cannot be used to lay new drainage tunnels and the road plans are facing changes. Until the alterations are approved, no work will occur.
Residents called that unacceptable, suggesting the project could have been in stages so as not to disrupt all of the busy street. They want to know when the project will be done, as it has severely impacted their businesses.
