Overdue completion of Jomtien Beach roadwork near the Hanuman statue likely will be done by the end of the March, a month later than earlier estimated.
Pattaya has resurfaced the road connecting Thappraya and Jomtien Beach Road with concrete, a 4.5 million baht project that began Sept. 30. Completion was scheduled for Feb. 26, but still is only about 90 percent done, with lane painting and clearing of construction debris still left to do.
Khomsan Nonkratok, an owner of a beer bar on the road, said construction has affected his and other businesses as it started in high season, taking away parking and making the street one-way only.
The project, which was scheduled to be finished by February 26, is now only 90% complete.
He questioned why the city thought it was a good idea to do roadwork during high season and said many residents and business owners only want to see such major projects done during slow times.
