Pattaya digs new railway road drainage canal

Pattaya digs new railway road drainage canal

PATTAYA:--Pattaya engineers used a backhoe to dredge a new canal on the railway-parallel road to allow floodwaters to flow to waterways leading to the sea.

 

The road regularly is inundated from storm runoff flowing downhill from Nong Plalai and Nongprue. The new waterway stretching from Kratinglai through Ban Euarthron Naklua will drain into the Nokyang Canal.

 

Engineers also opened barriers erected last week to block the flow of water, which sent flooding away from the railway road and into neighboring villages.

I have never seen it too bad at the Nong Plalai end. Nokyang Canal probably needs a good dredging too.

Local area to the north of Nongprue. Inland from Naklua. 

 

Good of the "engineers" to send the water into the moo bahns, eh?

Thanks but Nongprue covers a fair area.....

North or south of the railway station for example - I am guessing north if inland from Naklua?

If you head North out of Pattaya on the Railway line road, it comes to an end at a T junction with Hwy 36. That is the Nong Plalai area. 

Stay clear, road works on Hwy 36 at the moment and it is a mess!

The whole railway road is a complete mess...especially at the junctions.

It still beats Sukhumvit heading North for me on the bike. When it was first built it saved ages even in the truck. More recently more traffic crossing it makes for a lot of delays at the junctions, with many, infuriatingly stopping on the junctions and blocking movement completely.

I have only ever seen it deep in the small tunnel at the last junction before Hwy 36. So don't use it.

Above & Jacko too; I can't make up my mind whether it's brainlessness that causes such duckheads to logjam all movement or if it's just selfishness: me - me - me first.

There could be a fortune for a manufacturer who comes up with a metal flyover for straight-on traffic leaving the present junctions for turning right only.  Alternatively a traffic cop taken off stick-up duties during rush-hours.

I travel on the railroad track road most days.

 

Yes, a lot of knuckleheads try to jam the cross roads, but that is minor to when the "Police" help out the traffic flow and cause massive traffic jams every morning and evening.

 

Whenever, there is an unusual traffic jam, it is usually due to a traffic cop's "help".

 

Someone needs to train them!

They often put a few cops on the bigger couple of junctions (Suk 15 and Hwy 3240) at school rush times. They manage to stop the brainless blocking, but have a habit of giving each direction far too long. For some perplexing reason holding up 3 directions for one car coming in the distance. Hence super long waits between your turns. End result, it is worse for me on the bike. 

 

The traffic lights were tried in the early days, ridiculously bad.
