People complaining that North Pattaya sidewalks were repaired incorrectly need to be patient: The work will be completed later this month.
Business owners and pedestrians moaned Oct. 9 that telephone company repair crews had dug up tiled sidewalks along North Road and repaved them in uneven asphalt once their work was done, leaving stacks of footpath tiles scattered around the area near 2499 Wash & Wax, Wayupak School and Thanachart Bank.
In fact, the burying of telephone and internet lines by TOT pclis not finished. Now that the wires are buried, TOT is testing them.
Asphalt was poured to closed the sidewalks while testing proceeds, but the tiles were not restored so that workers can retain easy access to the buried cables if they need it.
Once testing is complete, the sidewalks will be restored later this month.
