The expansion of Jomtien Beach ground to a halt Monday after a sand-dredging ship developed mechanical problems.

About 100 meters of the 3.5-kilometer first phase of the beach refill has been completed, but will not proceed until a ship that dredges sand from an island near Koh Chang is repaired or replaced.



A sand ship is not expected to arrive in Pattaya until Oct. 21.

Project planners said the delay should not affect the project’s completion date next year.
