Pattaya has replaced bent manhole covers on Soi Khao Talo in response to residents’ complaints.
Four workers were out Dec. 28 in front of Family Mart opposite of Siam Commercial Bank, to fix the covers, which were bent and posing risks to motorbikes and other motorists.
The bent metal grating was opened and workers repaired the concrete support blocks before covering with a large steel plate as a temporary fix. Asphalt was used to secure the edges. The plates will be removed within two weeks after new manhole covers are made.
