Flooding imperils Pattaya Beach rebuild

PATTAYA:--Pattaya officials said they will monitor the beach near Soi 9 for erosion after it is rebuilt with new sand.

 

Beach users and internet commentators expressed concern Sept. 3 after heavy rain and flooding carved huge trenches out of the sand near the Pattaya Police Station.

 

Noting the same damage occurs after every major storm, many wondered if the hundreds of millions of baht being spent to rebuild the beach will be wasted.

 

Pattaya officials said the sand-restoration project has only reached Soi 4, but when the work is finished at Soi 9 the area will be monitored to ensure that the new sand is not washed away.

Before you start I suggest them to ask the Dutch, they just did not make a new beach but also some islands, where nothing then water was before.....

You’d think the professor of engineering would have  been proactive & thought about the water run-off from the sois before hand . Very obvious there was a severe erosion issue before his team started on this project.

BTW professor- those huge vinyl sandbag casings will deteriorate under the sun within 2-3 years.

"Is it time to call my bother to sell the city some more sand?"

"I think so, what you going to buy this time?"

That will all become irrelevant because I doubt the sand will be around for that long. But in the meantime the gaps between them will provide the perfect place for the rats to nest.

You can see recent history repeating itself over and over again but they never learn.
What is the betting this sand erosion will continue, then the substandard concrete promenade will become undermined and subsequently parts will collapse? I can see this recurring problem happen every rainy season and Pattaya City authorities can not?
Of course authorities know the problem will reoccur. That is basically the plan. Just think about how public contracts are managed, and it will become obvious why reoccurring capital projects are in the authorities interest...

So, I do not believe that the concept of 'study, plan, then execute' has no place in Thai Engineering schools.

 

This disastrous project was probably 'engineered' in Brown Envelope College.
