Pattaya plans to lay much larger drainage pipes under Thepprasit Soi 7 to relieve chronic flooding.
Deputy Mayor Pattana Boonsawat and city engineers met Nov. 29 with community leaders at the Kung Ten Had Kud Dua restaurant, which sits at the heart of the low-lying flood plane. Flooding is so bad there small cars can’t even pass through.
Pattana told locals that the city council already has approved a plan to replace the current 60-centimeter wide drainage pipe with a 200-cm. pipe.
However, pipe must be laid along the entirety of Soi 7, to the Ton Pho Market so water can be sent to Soi Wat Boonkanjanaram and Soi Jularat.
The rebuilt road also will be raised and new sewer lids installed.
No budget or timetable for the project was disclosed.
