Twenty billion baht tram projects set to transform Pattaya!

PATTAYA: -- Two tram lines are "coming for sure" and are set to transform Pattaya, said a watchdog group on Facebook.

Pattaya Watchdog posted a map of the Red and Blue lines that will go in loops around the beach and roads behind respectively.

Phase 1 is the Red Line for which there is a budget of 8 billion baht for a planned 8 kilometer loop. This will go from North Pattaya along the beach and back again on Sai 2 road.

The other project is the Blue Line that will share some track in North Pattaya before traversing a more inland route.

The watchdog group said there was still some confusion as to the exact route the Blue Line it might take as the projects are still in the planning stage. The Blue Line is set to be built later with a 12 billion baht budget.

A total of 103 million baht is being spent on "design" for the two lines.

The existing roads will be used for the trams after earlier ideas for an above ground project were rejected, said the watchdog.

A "switch station" to connect the two lines will be constructed in North Pattaya enabling transfers from one to the other.

Parking will be available in a lot at the start of the route.

The group said that the tram was the most eagerly anticipated addition to Pattaya in a swathe of infrastructure plans for the resort that include improvements to the Bali Hai and Koh Larn ports, roads to Rayong and Sattahip and drainage within the city.

They said that the tram was still in the planning stage but was coming for sure.

Throwing trams into the already congested mess is certainly an adventurous concept.

Buy your own tram, easy terms :laugh:

Many of the big city's have them, their Sky train is way better than the London Underground,, we don't even have aircon..

Broken Britain ... heading further down the pan...

I'll slate em, lol 

I wouldn't trust that tunnel in Pattaya because they are clueless. The only winners there are the ones who got or are getting bungs.

Sukhumvit road will have to be under 10ft of water for that tunnel to flood.

Got to say that when I was driving out of Pattaya last Sunday the tunnel did look rather impressive.

I think it will have a big benefit for road users in that area.

The one in KK has been painted in marigold, ugly and plain. The one in Pattaya looks bright and welcoming with interesting landscaping above ground.

When does it open?

TIT bit like a Thai saying they will meet you at 1pm and turning up at 2pm, it was close enough.
