Pics of the progress from yesterday. No more potholes, but it remains to be seen what kind of resurfacing they'll do. Asked at Growling Swan and Triangle, but nobody knows.

Soi Chaiyapoon. The 8th great mystery of the world.

Everyone says it is privately owned so it never gets fixed properly. But if you were the private owner wouldnt you fix it so the businesses would be busier and you could charge more rent. 

Ah, farang logic.

For those looking for their daily Poon fix, I'm afraid there's not much to report today other than the trucks are gone. According to one long time Poon inhabitant at Whiskers Bar, they're on holiday and will be back after the 1st.

One advantage of the potholes was you could go down the soi slowly on the motorbike checking out the girls, not sure that's practical now but i shall try

Get off your bike and walk, that way you can check then out up close and personal, much more fun that way.

555. Thats the exact reason I hate riding down that soi. It is really difficult to check out the girls and avoid the potholes at the same time

Rubberneckers will get run down from behind on that soi. 

I bet a minivan driver on crack can hit 70 now

Just tried it and its the same surface as before but no potholes, so still ok for motorbike use. One of the reasons for the motorbike is it stops the LBs accosting you. I mostly do walk though for a closer look

Last time the road was fixed it lasted about 4/5. months same will happen this time but will probably last 8/9 months until Sep/Oct when the rain/ floods start.

Yes, until the underlying problem with drainage is solved, regrading and resurfacing the street will only be temporary fixes.

Until the underlying problem with drainage of heavy rain and flood water is solved, regrading and resurfacing the street will only be temporary fixes.  The drainage problem can't be solved without the investment of billions of baht and considerable disruption of traffic due to construction, so I can't see that happening anytime soon. Pattaya will continue to limp along through cycles of flood damage and temporary fixes.

I am sure you are right with what you say.  The drainage system for Pattaya dates back to when it was a small place and there was big areas of open land to absorb the water when it rained.   Now with more and more construction and concrete everywhere there is no where for the water to go except downhill and into the sea.    The investment to sort this all out in a proper way and avoid run off into the sea would be massive, what they really need is to make water run uphill and then have a treatment plant that could cope which will never happen in my lifetime.
