Despite setbacks caused by September’s major storms, Jomtien Beach’s facelift is now half complete.

Begun in March, the 257-million-baht landscaping project now is complete from Dongtan Beach halfway down Jomtien Beach Road. Work will continue to the Soi Chaiyapruek intersection, a distance of four kilometers.

In addition to new shrubbery and trees, the project includes a new activity zone, expansion of footpaths and parking facilities. A Jomtien Beach sign will be erected and lighted seating areas for tourists installed.

Despite setbacks caused by September’s major storms, Jomtien Beach’s facelift is now said to be half complete.

The project suffered a serious setback in September when Tropical Depression Vamco slammed the beach, destroying newly installed tiles, washing away plants and wreaking havoc on the new construction.

The entire project is set to complete in 2016.
