1 Concrete driveway on Wed Aug 11, 2010 11:27 am

I would like to know what City Garden intend to do with the concrete driveway. The thin layer of pattern imprinted concrete is cracking due to either bad workmanship or insufficient expansion joints, if any at all. I hope that this will be renewed/repaired with the cost of it not coming out of our maintenance fund.

These are all issues to be discussed and put in to the agenda for our first meeting. Do you have any knowledge of this work? Because I think it would be a good idea to have some people on board who have experience in different areas, such as plumbing, electics, air con, civil engineering, etc. If these people are living in city gardens, we can then bring a solution to the problems. I was a construction/project manager. but have little to no knowledge of plumbing and electic,air con. But I can see lots of problems the developer needs to address at their cost not ours.

Agreed. It is also somewhat dangerous for motorcycles because it gets very slippery when wet and requires turning at an angle on a ramp when entering the parking. It really should have more traction on the ramps to the parking areas.

I totally agree about the driveway being slippery. I took a tumble going down in the car park with my girlfriend on the back of my scooter. Luckily we were barely moving. I always get her to get off the back when it is wet now.

I didn't mention the reason I knew it was slippery. My story is pretty much the same as yours. It was raining so she asked me to come out and drive it down to the garage. She got on the back and about half way down the bike just slipped out from under us. We were a little scraped up and bruised but not too bad. I've never had a bike slip out from under me that fast. I didn't even have time to react and put my leg down.

I don't quite feel as silly now. My gf still gives me heaps about dropping the bike with her on the back. My mate dropped a bike 6 weeks ago in the wet and the weight of the scooter alone was enough to snap his leg in three places.

But I suppose we don't really need to do something about this. It doesn't rain that often in Pattaya, does it? tongue

Please be careful on the sloped drive ways.

My thanks again to the very nice Thai lady who helped us up after the tumble.
