Installation of a new drainage system in South Pattaya is halfway done and should be completed on time in July, officials said.

It calls for installation of large storm-drainage and sewage pipes for more than a kilometer along South Road from Third Road to the sea, linking to pipes that feed into the South Pattaya Canal and Pratamnak Hill. Four pumps and a cesspool also will be installed.

Deputy City Manager Kiattisak Sriwongchai said the work was not 50% complete and should finish on schedule.
