Pattaya neglecting newly rebuilt beach

From everything I've seen over the past 10 years here, Thai simply do not believe in, understand the concept of "preventative maintenance".  They build something, or do something, and think it will simply stay that way all on it's own forever. 

Totally agree............applies to cars & small motor cycles too.......not sure about the big bikes though.

Ah yes, Pattaya's rain drainage project, the gift that keeps on giving. 

Not only in pattaya, Thai just don't understand how drains work and that water always flows downhill.....hope they ever learn it..

Thailand does not understand the maintenance concept. 

Just look at all the abandoned and empty eye saw of a building all over Thailand

Absolutely 100% true.  This goes for civil projects, subways, BTS anything.  FAF.  Fire and Forget.  Never budgeted, never planned, never performed.  Sometimes the patience of some times amazes me as they do the same thing day after day for little money and little hope of advancement.  Other times their forget it and drop it amazes me too

I am not sure what the problem is.  The 500,000,000 has already achieved its original purpose with a few more nice cars somewhere;  so just wait patiently for the refurbishment contract to be let to some "lucky" tenderer.

Pattaya hasn't spent half a billion baht on the beach.the funds were allocated but most went to Mercedes.looking at the picture it looks like a good breeding ground for mozzies,flies and bacteria.the people responsible should be sacked,investigated,named and shamed.thailand is falling apart from ignorance,greed and corruption as usual and it isn't going to get better.how the hell can you spend the equivalent of £12 million pounds on a beach and end up with a swamp is beyond me.

And yet the keep rebuilding...I run the beach every morning and look daily ,this beach will be ''sand bags ,from walking street to the Dusit in 4 years..those bags are under 8- 10 inches of sand ( more like mud and dirt really) the wind alone will blow most of it away over a few years....Saddly this ''beach sand bag fix'' is a one time F***K UP ,as no way in hell will they ever ever remove those bags now,this mess is a keeper....IT IS AN ABSOLUTE DISASTER...PERIOD

Why is everyone so negative. I drive past along beach road every day and the wider sections look fantastic. 

 

Clowns like "Happie Chappie" making comments "looking at the picture" ... Happie Chappie, what's it actually like on the beach please? 

What a stupid post...zzzzzzzz

I think the concept of maintenance just is not understood in Thailand in all areas of society.Five years ago,the partners relatives built a house up country.When I went to see it,I thought,if they ever want to sell it I could be interested.Farang kitchen,fully equipped bathroom,a real gem of a house.

Fast forward five years, the place looks thirty /forty years old,paint peeling,windows that do not close properly,hanging gutters,ground(which was a nice garden)is now covered with bottle tops,fag ends,nails so much you cannot see the actual ground.The rear of the house now has an external kitchen with hammocks,concrete benches etc that looks like a refugee camp and the state of the art bathroom now has a 45 gallon drum full of water because nothing in the room actually works any longer .Inside it looks in every room like a left luggage storage area.It is obvious that since it was built absolutely nothing has been done to keep the place looking nice or maintained.And no,I would not buy it now.

Tourists are complaining that all the money and effort Pattaya has expended to rebuild its beach is being wasted through neglected maintenance.

 

How would most tourists even know what was spent? 

 

Either the beaches are in good shape, or they aren't.  That's what tourists care about.

Tourists pointed out that Pattaya has spent more than a half-billion baht to repair its beach, but won’t spend the relatively little money to keep it looking beautiful.

How do tourists know about this “government spending”..... did the local orbitor place signs everywhere advising of the project scope and cost?

One can only guess that you do not (or cannot afford) a stay at the Dusit Thani Hotel?
