Pattaya scraped out drains under Sukhumvit Road to better handle endemic flooding.
A work crew on Aug. 1 scooped out garbage blocking sewers, sucked out pipes and repaired broken grates in the Sukhumvit median near North Road. They also cut back grass blocking water flow.
They later moved down the road to do similar work between Soi Chaiyapruek and Soi Wat Boonkanjanaram.
It’s hoped all the maintenance will lesson flooding during the balance of rainy season.
