Pattaya Deputy Mayor Pattana Boonsawat checked a section of the recently renovated Naklua long bridge that still is failing due to old age.

City engineers surveyed the structure, which had been reinforced and repainted, Jan. 13 following social-media complaints that some of the bridge is still falling apart.

Pattana assured everyone that the bridge’s structure is sound and the complaints were unfounded. However, the bridge neck on the Naklua Market side has two damaged posts.

He said the Engineering Department already was assigned to repair the aging posts and reinforce them with steel and concrete. The neck also will be repaved and parking areas near it added. (PCPR)
