How long has it been since the Pattaya Tunnel was supposed to open?
It was rumoured that it would be ready for Songkran but did not happen. Previous dates were as far back as February but still we wait.
The authorities have apparently been pushing the contractors for a date of completion but nothing has been forthcoming hitherto.
So now the people of Pattaya have vented their frustration regarding the continuous delays and excuses online.
Social media is a powerful tool when the public use it to express their annoyance.
Comments such as “When is it opening”, “Get it opened now” are commonplace on Facebook.
Many complained about the road surface around the tunnel, saying tyres were being ruined due to pot holes or uneven surfaces.
But the best comment was someone asking “Will we need a boat to get through the tunnel?” possibly suggesting that it may be prone to flooding.
But as it stands, the tunnel is about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike.
