They have this along the beach in certain places mainly where the pavement dips and water will flow from the road to the beach. It doesn't look wide enough for the volume of water, assuming that is what it's for

My first thoughts when I saw this was, I think they are under estimating the power of water.

Yes with the power of the water i predict it will just flow straight over and onto the beach washing the worst parts away. We shall see

From the pictures it looks more like there will be some structure in the middle, and this is to prevent water going in.

no that's not what its for. i must admit it had me puzzled too but an asset tells me that the rubber covered electrical lines are being fed through those channels then topped off with concrete/cement

Anyone else think that Jomtien Beach, especially Dongtan has shrunk considerably this past year ?

They put that wide prom in all along Dongtan. I think that took the top part of the beach, at least in places. Can’t say I noticed in the other direction.

Yes, I know and I wondered if that was what was making me think that.

But at the far end of DongTan, I do not remember the Volleyball court being so close to the waters edge ?

I don’t remember noticing the volleyball court last trip, sorry, so can’t help. Probably daydreaming again when I walked past it.

Yes, i think these are still a mystery. They don't seem to lead anywhere so wiring doesn't make sense either89ce732a36106c310862dbf7f005cd81.jpg

Towards the north end they dropped off several loads of riprap. Wonder if that will be used for erosion control, or possibly a base for boat launch ramp.

Another hazy day.

Could only make out the Pattaya City sign when zoomed in.

Not many chutes in the air, but I confess when I took the pic I wasn't really looking that far out.

One positive to the beach nourishment project, boat passengers are only one or two steps from dry land when getting on or off the speedboats.

I just don't see how these barriers will control runoff and erosion if that is their intended purpose.

The beach nourishment project is almost done. Final snaps of the work to be done on the south end.

I'm liking that the deckchairs appear to be only allowed where they were before i.e. lots of people now instead go to the beach area nearer the sea

In the last week in Pattaya I saw more people on the beach than I have ever seen before.   Maybe before they were obscured by the ranks of deck chairs and now you can see much better but I really do think more people on the beach.

At the speed it works at and the narrow area it covers in one pass it will take much more than one day to cover the enlarged beach.

re those piles of rocks. today i saw elsewhere a photo of some oblong wire mesh cases. so they must intend to fill them and to act as some sort of coastal defense

Reading today that they expect beach improvements to be finished at Pattaya beach within the next week, and then they will move onto Jomtien, and doing the same there, I think starting with Dongtan.

Daily beach sand filtering will make a huge difference.  I hope they can keep this up.
