Roadwork outside CAT office has neighbors howling

Residents near the CAT Telecom office called for help as a project by the Pattaya Waterworks Authority to lay new pipe drags into its third week.

Having dug up the sidewalk, CAT’s workers have caused much difficulty for passersby and telephone company employees.

CAT executive Thatchapong Kattiwanit said he was told PWA dug up the area to lay larger drainage pipes before the rainy season sets in. PWA, however, outsourced the work to a contractor, who has left their work area a mess. Pedestrians must walk on Third Road, putting them in harm’s way.

The mess the PWA contractors left…The mess the PWA contractors left…

Prasat Sawatpong, a safety officer for CAT, said the pipe actually had been laid days before, but rubble from the dig remained.

Once press inquiries began, workers hurriedly brought in trucks to clear some of the debris so people could walk by.
