Broken sidewalk a safety hazard in Jomtien


Jomtien Beach vendors are saying broken sidewalks are an accident waiting to happen.

Seller Maiporn Banjongsut said huge holes that have appeared in the pavement near the Sea Sports Center are a safety risk to pedestrians, particularly at night.


She said flooding during the rainy season washed away the sand foundation under the sidewalk, causing it to collapse. But Pattaya City Hall has done nothing about the problem in the month since rainy season ended.

The area is popular with both joggers and cyclists who now risk serious injury due to city neglect, she said.
