City engineers are laying drainage pipes and repairing potholes around Jomtien Soi 5 to create a smoother surface more impervious to flooding.
Workers dug up roadway and old pipes Aug. 1 on Soi 5, whose uneven surface and blocked drains resulted in constant flooding. Work on other roads near the Hanuman curve to Soi Chaiyapruek also left Soi 5 lower than other streets.
No time table was given as to when work is slated to be complete.
Jomtien Soi 5 is going to be a mess for a while as city workers replace the drains.
