Pattaya demolished awnings and illegal billboards on Central and South roads.
City council members Banjong Banthoonprayuk and Jirawat Plukjai watched as crews began removing the awnings that extend all the way across Central Road’s sidewalks March 31.
In January, Pattaya told more than 50 shop owners to remove awnings that prevented the installation of new light poles. A 28-million-baht contract to repave Central Road’s sidewalks and install 150 new light poles was delayed by the inability to place poles where shops had taken over the footpaths.
Owners were given 15 days to do the work, but many didn’t. So city crews came in and demolished signboards and awnings that didn’t comply with regulations.
