Pattaya slowly cleaning up spaghetti wiring mess

 

PATTAYA:--From North Road to Jomtien Beach, Pattaya city workers and local utility companies slowly are untangling the area’s unsightly jumbles of power and cable-television wires.

 

Pattaya administrators and city council members were briefed on the progress of the beautification efforts at a March 9 meeting, which showed dedicated efforts to clean up the spaghetti wire bundles that not only look bad, but often lead to fires.

 

Engineering Department staffers said work has been proceeding on North Road between Tesco Lotus and the Third Road intersection, with the most recent work done March 8 on two kilometers of roadway.

 

Workers will move to Central Road on March 22.

 

In Jomtien Beach, the Provincial Electricity Authority’s local office had been untying knotted wires from Thepprasit Road to Chaiyapruek Road, a length of about three kilometers.

"beautification" crap, they need to put these cables and wires under ground otherwise they should just shove up their asses.  When it rains no more internet nor cable tv.

That stretch don't get a lot of foot traffic, as some businesses discovered. Gotta wonder about the priorities. Seems to me 2nd Rd would be better place to start; some Brit got electrocuted there back in 2008.

I often wonder how many of these wires are redundant. Run a new cable and just leave the old one instead of removing it.

Credit where credit is due. No-one seems to have been injured or worse during the course of this very dangerous type of work. I hope it stays that way.

 

How true.

 

I haven't been to Pattaya  for years, what are they actually doing:

 

- Just tidying it all up - but still above ground, or

 

- Putting it all underground?

100% agree. They still don't seem to lay cable underground on new housing projects...........

Agree. Lots of low-hanging wires on Second Road and, especially, a big mess of wires by PS Bowl near the painted bus stop.

They are supposed to remove the old cables when replacing them. BUt never do. When I changed cable tv companies  when they came inside to install the box, I asked them if they were going to remove the old cable. They said they wouldn't because it wasn't their wire. 

So there is the continuing never ending problem.

They tidy them up often but new ones go up everyday.

 

Some sois are ok though. It looks like they have  Soi 9 theprasit all sorted.image.jpeg under control.

Many are surely redundant. I once had a cable issue and since they couldn't find the old cable amid all the spaghetti in the bottom of the building (WHAT a mess), and outside on the street, they simply ran a new cable. Now in fairness the owners don't want any identifying tags on their cables because other owners will sabotage them out of spite about something or another. Lot of nutters in Pattaya . . . .

Wouldn't it be cheaper to run the wires under the garbage??? just asking.

Further down a bit they may have done just that. Or maybe the litter has grown over the top of them.

It is hard to say.

but I think you maybe onto something.
