Pattaya workers removed a damaged pavilion and repaired soil erosion at a Pratamnak Hill beach.
Workers from the city Environment Department cleared the abandoned pavilion on “Yim Yom Beach” July 10, then filled in holes left behind and others caused by beach erosion.
The removal came more than a year after the pavilion was damaged by a storm. Local residents have been complaining to city hall since then about the dilapidated structure only to see their complaints fall on deaf ears.
A city construction crew goes to work demolishing the damaged pavilion at Yin Yom beach.
Parks director Chaowai Praditpruek said a new pavilion eventually will be built, but the work falls under a 600 million baht Jomtien Beach renovation project that has not yet been funded.
