Roadwork to improve drainage on Beach Road has begun, resulting in heavy traffic congestion.
Lane closures on the city’s main north-south artery began July 24 with crews beginning the process of laying new drainage pipes and burying utility lines.
L.B. Engineering Co. is spearheading the 95-million-baht project than officially began June 19 and is expected to run through February next year.
The project will lay half-meter-wide drainage pipes, cesspools, culverts, drain covers and related work over the entire 2.9 kilometers of Beach Road.
Work began at the south end of Beach Road at the entrance of Walking Street with a lane closed as digging got underway.
