Pattaya’s deputy mayor ordered a city contractor to reopen a busy Naklua intersection where underground work was completed, but left unpaved.

Banlue Kullavanijaya said a project to connect new drainage pipes with a clarifier under Naklua Road at the Namchai intersection was already finished, but the contractor left the road open so pipes could be connected with new ones coming from Lan Po Public Park.

However, construction at Lan Po has not started yet, which meant that the busy intersection would have been left torn up for months. Banlue pointed out the folly of that to the construction company, which promised to close the holes and repave the surface so normal traffic could resume.

Once the Lan Po work is done, the Namchai intersection will be torn open again.

The deputy mayor also ordered the contractor to get to work on laying new drainage pipes to the Plukplub Canal Pump Station. The contractor pointed out that it had not started because tap-water pipes needed to be relocated.

Banlue informed the company that the Provincial Waterworks Authority had already moved the pipes so there was no need for further delay.

The contractor, collecting city funds while doing nothing, said it would be get back to work.
