Pattaya has built a drainage trough on Jomtien Soi 5 to solve persistent flooding.
Public works technician Wiroj Jorsungnern led the March 28 work detail outside the Krua Surf Restaurant owned by one of Pattaya’s deputy mayors.
Workers dug a large trough at the beginning of Jomtien Soi 5 to connect to drainage pipes under the footpath on Jomtien Beach Road to allow for faster stormwater drainage.
A large steel plate was placed over the hole for safety between work shifts. The job should be completed within a week.
