The Pattaya Waterworks Authority (PWA) told local media this week that sink holes that have reportedly caused accidents and complaints locally were caused from erosion by recent storms. Contractors will be responsible for any injuries from accidents, the PWA added.
Sinkholes on a railway road in the Pattaya area caused a road accident early this week in which two people sustained injuries as well as drew substantial warnings and complaints about the road overall on Thai social media. You can read more about this below.
Mr. Chaitat Eidsand, the Pattaya City Waterworks Authority Manager, told The Pattaya News, “The construction project is designed to extend the water drainage system along the road from Pattaya to Laem Chang to Si Racha. The project is now 70 percent completed with a total budget of 257 million baht.”
“Those sinkholes were caused from heavy rain in previous days which caused erosion from under the road surface.” Chaitat continued.
“We have told the contractor who is responsible for the road project. They will also be held responsible for those two injuries from the recent road accident reported in the media.” Chaitat added.
“However the water system renovation project might not be completed on time as many processes still have to be done and Covid19 has caused delays.” Chaitat warned.
“We are warning the contractor to be more careful on putting out road signs to warn road users.” Chaitat concluded.
