Nongprue public works crews repaired a section of Soi Khao Noi that had subsided due to repeated flooding.
Heavy machinery and workers ripped up the road in front of the Pattaya Hill 2 development Nov. 29 to pour in new concrete to lift the road to the same level as drainage pipes.
Sub-district Councilman Metasit Somla said several parts of Soi Khao Noi – which often resembles roaring rapids after heavy rains – had collapsed, pushing drainage pipes through the road’s surface.
The result has been numerous accidents and real peril to motorcyclists.
The road was reopened in about three days.
