Thirty-two public toilets at the Bali Hai Pier in Pattaya will be ready to use by April of this year, say Pattaya City leaders.
The Pattaya City Deputy Mayor Pattana Boonsawat told The Pattaya News, “Thirty-two public toilets will be for men, women, and disabled people. Both Thai and foreign tourists are visiting Koh Larn regularly and numbers are increasing, especially on weekends. We also expect Covid-19 restrictions on foreign tourists, like quarantines and partial border closures, to continue to ease this year which will bring many more visitors to Pattaya. The pier is also used for many events and for gathering, socializing, skateboarding, and exercising nightly which also attracts many people. Currently, the pier area only has a small number of pay toilets at the parking garage and we utilize public bus toilets, which are not ideal for everyone.”
“The toilet construction is currently behind schedule. This is because the contractor we hired for this job says there are tubes for electric wires and water pipes under the construction area over 18-years-old. Some construction plans had to be changed in order not to damage those under ground systems.” Pattana explained.
“The construction base of the toilets will be completed soon. The toilets will be ready to use in April this year.” Pattana concluded.
