Pattaya EEC projects moving at snail’s pace

PATTAYA:--Pattaya’s plans to build a downtown tram and cruise terminal continue to plod along as the city continues to angle for government handouts under the Eastern Economic Corridor project.

 

At a July 19 meeting of Pattaya’s EEC committee, city hall officials and council members were briefed on the major projects proposed for government EEC funding.

 

Furthest along is the tram project, which could run a loop around Second and Beach roads and into Jomtien Beach. A feasibility study is planned and the team doing that study should be selected by the end of July.

 

The proposed cruise terminal still is in a primordial stage with the proposal not even presented to government ministries.

 

Even less has been done on the other projects: further redevelopment of Bali Hai Pier, a Tourism Education Center, a vaguely described “MICE City Phase 2”, and the high-speed rail project linking Bangkok with U-Tapao-Rayong-Pattaya Airport.
