Deputy Governor Jumpol also blamed some officials. According to him, sometimes agencies responsible for the road works left temporary covers on manholes and tunnels for an excessive amount of time, causing them to be prone to accidents. He added that if more accidents are seen, the BMA will not allow the company responsible for that accident to undertake any more projects with the BMA. The move will help the BMA screen out projects which lack proper planning.
Since the great flooding 2 years ago, there have been several cases of Bangkok roads caving in and underground water pipes bursting.
