Koh Larn Bridge and pier planned to be renovated in next three years with a 140 million baht budget


Koh Larn-

The Pattaya Marine Department plans to use a 140 million baht budget in 2023 to renovate the Koh Larn Bridge and pier in which a mandatory EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) is almost completed.

The bridge and pier has been used for more than 20 years and cannot support big boats. Portions of the area are in serious disrepair according to the Marine Department. With expected large numbers of tourists in future years renovating the pier is a top priority, according to the Marine Department.

Koh Larn is one of many protected areas for the environment in Thailand. The renovation project must be approved during the EIA before the renovation can be started due to its conservation status.

The Pattaya Marine Department head Eakkarat Kantaro told the Thai press, “The project is now being considered for the EIA final process. This process takes some time but we expect to receive final approval.”

“It is expected that the Marine Department will use a 140 million baht budget in 2023 to refurbish the bridge and pier area.”
