Koh Larn locals urge Pattaya officials to fix their coastal bridge

“Fix the Koh Larn bridge”. That’s the cry from Koh Larn business owners as they demand Pattaya municipal officials to attend to the repair of the Tien Beach bridge. They complain that it’s close to collapsing. Koh Larn is off the coast of Pattaya in the Gulf of Thailand.

Pattaya Mail reports that locals say there have been no lights on the bridge for a decade, and now neglect and a lack of any maintenance is causing the foundations of the bridge, over a rocky shoreline, to collapse.

Most of the 500 metre span of concrete bridge has no railings, the steel posts and foundation are rusting away and various parts of the structure are already missing. Residents fear the bridge could collapse at any time.

Business owners want Pattaya city hall officials to immediately renovate the bridge before someone gets hurt and “damages the reputation of the island”.
