Long-running road construction in the Bunkanchanaram Temple area is 70 percent complete and could be finished on time in October.
The laying of new storm-drainage pipes under a newly constructed, steel-reinforced concrete road running from Soi Wat Boonkanjana 3 to Soi Chaiyapruek 2 has neighbors complaining about traffic, dust and the long duration of the work.
Contractors BS & BS began work March 26 and the 22.4 million baht project is set for completion on Oct. 11, a company foreman said.
Commuting in the area is laborious, as the road has been reduced to one usable lane whilst construction continues along Soi Wat Bun.
Currently, the construction has reached Boonkanjana Soi 5, with 800 meters of work left to go. Pattaya has erected a sign in the area apologizing to residents for the inconvenience.
Commuting in the area is laborious as the road has been reduced to one usable lane. In addition, dirt clouds the air, forcing workers to repeatedly spray water to keep the dust from annoying residents more than it does already.
Resident Sum Nartchai said construction workers start in the morning and work until 4-5 p.m. He said he thinks the project should have been finished before now, but is trying to be patient as the long-term benefit to the area should be a marked reduction in flooding.
