PATTAYA:--Central Pattaya residents are complaining that nearly 3 million baht in roadwork has failed to alleviate the flooding it targeted.

 

Nattapong Santaveesuk of the city’s Engineering Department toured two sidestreets in the Soi Arunothai Community with neighborhood representative Amnuay Muangthong on April 22.

 

Residents living on Soi Charoensuk and Soi Udomsuk said their streets were ripped up, new drainage pipes laid and the road resurfaced all with the goal of ending years of chronic flooding.
It didn’t work.

"Finished this month, both projects are under warranty for two more years, so contractors may be sent back to rip up the roads again to fix what they failed to do the first time."

 

Yeah right, as if that'll happen before the companies get wound up.

Just like what they did in Soi Honey inn, Soi Dianna Inn, Soi Buakhow etc etc. When after all these years they have still not worked out how to drain Beach Rd which is right next to the sea, how can anyone expect a different outcome for any of these other projects?

Just look at those blank expressions. I would love to have a transcript of the conversation. I dare say it would be highly entertaining.

And the construction company happily pocketed millions for a crappy job!

Don't worry the other kind of "flooding" will not be affected. The flooding to bank accounts went perfect.

I would have thought that the construction company just follows the design specs. If it was not designed/engineered properly don't blame the construction company. On the other hand, if the size of the sewer drains were downsized to skim money, that would be their fault. Not really sure. Just send down an inspector.
