Pattaya City to rearrange advertising signs on Walking Street for easier firefighter access


Pattaya —

Pattaya authorities are planning to rearrange advertising signs on Walking Street to provide better access to fire engines and their crews.

A meeting to discuss the reorganization of the advertising signs was held at the Pattaya City Hall yesterday, August 25th, and was attended by Pattaya mayor Poramase Ngampiches and business operators from Walking Street.


The meeting focused on ways to rearrange advertising signs that belonged to nightlife places without obstructing their businesses while also providing proper access to fire engines and their crews so that they could enter the area in time in the event of a fire.

Finally, the meeting attendants agreed to adjust the signs to run parallel with the building’s front. Additionally, the signs must not protrude on the street more than 50 centimeters and must be 2.40 meters above the ground.


Poramase said that he would assign the Public Works officials to inform the venue operators about this new policy and send an official letter to them later. A regular inspection would also be implemented, and those who refused to cooperate would face legal action, the mayor stated.

TPN notes this is far from the first time Pattaya City has tried to regulate the signs on the street and end large overhanging signs, but prior attempts never truly got underway. It remains to be seen if this newest pledge will be enforced.
