Pattaya will spend 1.1 million baht to repair the Naklua Bridge. Erosion from flooding caused by heavy rain has damaged the bridge’s foundation, creating a safety hazard for both drivers and pedestrians. The repair is urgent and cannot wait for the normal budget cycle to allocate funds.
Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome said heavy trucks currently are unable to traverse the bridge and the situation has impacted local residents.
The repair is only one of many required after recent flooding, the mayor said.
Naklua’s bridge is in need of urgent repair, as erosion has damaged the bridge’s foundation.
