Nongprue has earmarked 9.4 million baht to build a new drainage system under Soi Mabyailia 43.

The sloped roadway suffers serious flooding during every heavy storm because there currently are only small PVC drainage pipes that can’t remove water from higher ground.

Sub-district engineers visited the neighborhood Aug. 1 and assured residents that officials have not ignored their plight. A project to install a working flood-drainage system has been added to Nongprue’s 2019-2021 development plan, they said.

Engineering boss Bekchai Ninpanan said the 9.4-million-baht project calls for 495 meters of concrete pipes that are 1.5 meters wide to be laid under the road, which will be resurfaced with cement and widened to as much as seven meters.
