Nongprue Sub-district has launched a nine-month project to replace drainage pipes under Pattanakarn Road.
The 52.6 million baht project will be carried out by Kitruamka Sirisopa Tacon Co. with expected completion in June.
Improvements called for include sewer placement and road expansion to eight meters wide over the 2.1-kilometer stretch of roadway from the Pattanakarn three-way intersection to Phutara Village.
The contract actually was let May 19 and aims to improve the quality of life for sub-district residents and boost tourism.
Busy Pattanakarn Road, which provides vital links to Soi Kao Noi, Soi Kao Talo, Soi Chaiyapruek, Soi Nong Hin, Nong Kabok, and Soi Nernplabwan, is being given an overhaul expected to take at least 9 months.
The busy thoroughfare provides vital links to Soi Kao Noi, Soi Kao Talo, Soi Chaiyapruek, Soi Nong Hin, Nong Kabok, and Soi Nernplabwan. However, it is narrow and often filled with sand that turns to slippery mud in the rain.
Mayor Mai Chaiyanit acknowledged the long-running construction will create an inconvenience, but the long-term benefit will be worth it.
