Three million baht spent but not a lot to show for the considerable investment. Central Pattaya residents say that nearly 3 million baht was spent on roadwork but has failed to alleviate the flooding in the sois where the money was invested.

Nattapong Santaveesuk of the city’s Engineering Department toured two side streets in Soi Arunothai with neighborhood representatives Amnuay Muangthong this week.

The Pattaya Mail reports that residents living on Soi Charoensuk and Soi Udomsuk complain that their streets were ripped up, new drainage pipes laid and the road resurfaced, all with the goal of ending years of chronic flooding.

But it didn’t work.

Both streets continue to flood and take a long time to drain according to residents

Both projects are under warranty for two more years, according to city engineers, so they will ask the contractors to appraise the situation and perhaps rip up the roads again to fix what they failed to do the first time.
