That could apply to any pavement in Thailand!!!

Not to the extent it applies to Klang...  and no completion efforts in sight.

A few from Tree Town and surrounds from earlier this evening.  

Last batch of pics from Pattaya Tai to Buakhao and ending on 3rd Rd.

So quiet and social distancing in Big-CX.   I believe this used to be an 'Erotic Massage' place on Soi Buakhao, perhaps recently mentioned by @tallguy it is no more. Also Ne

They were removing cables on Klang this morning near Big-CX... but don't look up, you will break your ankle on the pavement mess!

You have to look up.  And down.  And up.  You never know where an obstacle will come from when walking the sidewalks there.

Saw a crew out this morning shooting tranquillizer darts at soi dogs. If I understood correctly, once tranquilized they're getting a shot of rabies vaccine.

I love animals.  Dogs, cats,  wonderful companions to man.  But sadly these wild strays are a threat and something should be done to reduce their numbers.  So I'm not offended by your statement.

Now when it comes to the monkeys on the Bangpra golf course I would volunteer to cull them.  Give me a suppressed scoped rifle and the golfers won't even notice I'm at work.  I hate those things.  And they are dangerous.

Very commendable... will they find the same dogs a year later for the second vaccine?

They're working on a major flood control canal about 300m south of Khao Noi on the railway road.

The canal empties into a low spot on the north/south road. No doubt the project includes pumps, but I'm wondering where they intend to pump the water to. There's drainage along the road that runs to the south where there's a pumping station. That station dumps water into an underground canal that ties in to the work they're doing on Sukhumvit by Pattaya Tai, but looking at the size of the above canal the water volume will overwhelm the drainage to the south.

Now that they new mayor started kicking butts, they're making good progress on the repaving of WS.

It'll look even better once they pull the utility poles.

 All very nice but once you get a thunder storm how/where will the water disperse?

Only wandered a short way but couldn't see any drains.

For the life of me I don't recall ever going to the upstairs area and don't know why.    I think it was a restaurant but I never took the time to explore it.

I miss the beer bars on the ground level but I  know that's a part of history that's just gone.

Good point, but they've had pavers for years and they haven't been undercut by storm water. Suspect the sand base and proximity to the sea allows for quick drainage.

Ground level bars are still there, and have recently gotten a makeover.

I understand that but I think they also look like they were designed taking an idea from "Modern Architecture"  

Do you think the current rendition  compares favorably in  the least to  what we knew prior to the Pandemic?

TBH, other than the removal of the boxing ring, the makeover looks like a cleaned up version of the old beer bars.

Gents - I am unable to post photographs on this forum.  I get a message box with text as above.  My status is shown as upgrade.  Is there any limit as to how much upload space is allowed to members of different levels.

Thanks.

Mobile data anyone...

Puzzled why the Thai's felt the need to paint all the arrows the length of Soi Arunotai. Doubt anyone has ever confused this as a one way soi.

They must have a job lot of paint to use up. They've been down Cosy Beach painting solid yellow lines down the middle of road and box grids at some of the junctions. It won't make any difference.
