Endless road work infuriates Naklua 16-18 residents

Road workers have again torn up Naklua Soi 16-18 and local residents are fed up with a seemingly endless resurfacing cycle.

The tiny streets, which serve as the only conduits to major hotel and condominium complexes, have been reduced to just 1.5 lanes, with the rest of the space taken up with drainage pipes, idle construction equipment and parked cars. The rainy season has turned the entire street into a muddy mess.

One foreign resident said workers only show up sporadically, leaving the road torn up for much longer than necessary. He said accidents happen frequently due to the poor conditions and haphazard parking.

Several residents complained the road is resurfaced far more frequently than necessary, either to generate work for construction companies or because the quality of the concrete used is so poor. Holes in the road show that the thickness of the concrete is several centimeters thinner than required by building codes.
