Pattaya revives failed Bali Hai marina project

Recommended Posts

Depressing story.  Pattaya needs a powerful city employee with a staff that oversees all city projects before, during, and after the construction is done--with half of the payment held back until the work is done and inspected.

I thought this was supposed to be a showpiece to attract the international yacht crowd.  But, as always, someone was dreaming and someone was also siphoning off the budget to line their own pockets.   Hence crap work that is now falling apart in record time.

 

I have come to the conclusion that there is no hope for Thailand. 

champagne ideas on beer money !!!!!!

Like some wounded dog at the side of a road. They let it suffer in agony for days, weeks, months, years, rather than put it down.

 

I think almost every project in Pattaya I've witnessed in my 33 years here has failed or had problems of some kind. Whose to blame? You don't need to look any further than the man who was at the top. Those that put him there are not without blame too. You only get what you vote for.

For a THB 100k I'll advise the new mayor to tear the marina down.

Will cost me about 10 minutes to explain that AND as a bonus I'll advise him to demolish the greenhouse at Bali Hai as well.

 

For the remaiing THB 4,900,000 I'll restore Bali Hai to its old glory (apart from the boat-parking of course)

If the marina was damaged in what is considered bad weather here maybe they should have considered hiring a contractor with experience in constructing marinas on the coastline of the North Sea....

they are blaming a tropical depression vamco which arrived in thailand in mid september 2015 via vietnam where it used up most of it's power. however i started a thread inc copious pics on another forum on the destruction of the bali hai marina in mid january of 2015.

Seems we all know the real reason for the 5,000,000 baht "consultation".

It never used to be so shameless back in the 90s. We all knew it went on, but out of sight.

 

I wouldn't care, but seems that every project they embark on just makes a mess now.

 

From the photo, appears they used unprotected steel for the construction. How long would that have lasted even if the whole thing hadn't collapsed?

Kasetsart University, the Royal Thai Navy and King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology

So we can expect to see the 'experts' from KU, RTN and KMIT on all expense paid junkets to Pattaya before advising that a special committee needs to be set up to review their findings.
