I was in Seaside earlier today and it seemed like the road is being resurfaced....or at least filling in the holes (in the road that is) ....Wonder how long it will last for this time...???

I have "walked" down this road many times in a state where I could easily fall arse over tit. Now if the fix all the pot holes what excuse can I use?

I have never known it to be anything other than potholed. I think I shall take a walk up there over the weekend just for the unique experience...

I think that it is a wonderful idea to give some of the bodies in the pot holes a decent burial.

I have just walked the full length of it and there is no sign of re-surfacing anywhere. However, there were 2 adjacent potholes which looked like they might have had a bit of tarmac put in them recently.

 

It is in desperate need of resurfacing, though.

I have re-named Chayapoom as 'Soi Pot-hole'
Someone once told me that the road was owned by Toyota...not sure if that is true but possibly why it has never been fixed.

As I was leaving Seaside this morning I just saw 2 trucks appear with tarmac and a steam roller at the 3rd road end...Obviously they used up the allocated amount on just two holes then......... Maybe more tomorrow....Ooooh isn't it exciting..

The bit of tarmac I saw was about a third of the way down from Third Road. And it was clear a steamroller hadn't been used on it.

 

I suspect that what you saw was used elsewhere.

Hahaha ..yep.. very likely...

 

EDIT = I might,of course, have hallucinated the whole scene... In which case may I recommend the mushroom soup in Seaside...

That will make a difference... can't take your eyes off the potholes normally so eyeing up service girls is very difficult.

Even tried parking the bike (that ain't easy, everyone lays claim to the street parking) and walked recently, that is also difficult when the potholes are filled with water.

Trouble is, when and if it becomes a smooth well surfaced road, it will also become a thoroughfare for large coaches full of Chinese heading to the shopping Malls or Beach, and may even become part of their tour route!

Maybe Toyota used it as a test track for their Hilux :-)

Totally agree...Pattaya needs sois like Chayapoom, Honey, and those between 3rd and Arunothai to stay as they are for a little surruptitious activity...

Well it was just a scattering of stones into the holes as far as I can see and that isn't going to last!

At the 3rd road end, it was almost a paved topping, then became gravel fill, then stopped completely before Canterbury Tales...that was a couple of days ago.

I went for another bowl of mushroom soup yesterday and noticed that the new gravel was diffent grades so those on a motorcy will either slide accross the small gravel or be dragged to a halt by the larger, looser gravel.

 

Unfortunately it's at the 3rd road end otherwise I'd have had another bowl of soup and sat and watched....

Seaside.It's a little greasy spoon style cafe where you can sit outside if you like to watch goings on....

 

The soup is Cambells condensed soup which Robins Nest and I-Rovers are incapable of putting in a saucepan, adding the correct amount of water and heating up...

 

They do a breakfast for 130 baht....greasy spoon style with spuds too.....but not for me....

 

EDIT = I have vague memories of going in there before 9am once, totally ratassed, and having the mixed grill which I think was deliciously filling...I think..
