Eye opening experience



It has been an eye opening experience of the incompetence of the Road Works Dept here in Jomtien/Pattaya, with the millions of baht spent and no improvement during 10 years of construction/destruction. In 2004 they replaced the complete road, (but) flooding continued, 2nd Road exit/entry was restricted to 1 lane, U turns were blocked off, digging one hole leads to another, with no sign of any urgency to finish. Meanwhile, condo developments continue.  A lorry park adds to the pressure on the road.

The small residential B road that comes off SWB, where children walk to school, is now used by 24 wheel lorries. This road was never designed for this. A complete failure of this road would not be a surprise.
