Pattaya Plans Major Makeover for Jomtien Beach


Pattaya City has partnered with Dynamic Group Products to spearhead a comprehensive improvement project aimed at addressing flooding, utility issues, and revitalizing the beachfront area of Jomtien Beach.

The ambitious initiative, divided into four phases, will involve the installation of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes beneath the road surface and the relocation of existing structures for improved functionality and aesthetics.

Phase 1 kicks off the project with the installation of 1,725 meters of HDPE pipes stretching from the Tops Daily convenience store to the Jomtien Sub Police Station Branch at Dong Tan Curve. This phase has a completion timeframe of 14 months.

Phase 2 focuses on a shorter 555-meter section, laying HDPE pipes from the D Varee Hotel to the Tops Daily convenient store within 5 months. Phase 3 expands further, covering 1,990 meters and reaching Soi Na Jomtien 19 over a 17-month period. Finally, Phase 4 constructs a drainage system near the D Varee Hotel, requiring a 24-month construction timeline.

To ensure smooth progress and minimize disruptions, Pattaya city officials held a public meeting on February 14th. One of the key discussions was the implementation of a one-way traffic system on Jomtien 1 Road to facilitate construction while maintaining public accessibility to the beach.

This traffic management plan will be implemented from March 1st, 2024, from the Jomtien Sub Police Station Branch to the Chaiyapruek Service Center at Jomtien Beach intersection.

Beyond drainage improvement, city officials said the project also incorporates landscape adjustments, upgraded electrical systems, and lighting improvements. Additionally, pedestrian walkways along Jomtien Beach will be enhanced, trees will be planted, and new drainage points will be constructed near the boat ramp area.

Parking capacity will also see a significant increase, from 629 to 1,161 spaces. To ensure safety and continuous illumination, high mast lighting poles will be installed along the 4-kilometer stretch of the beach.
