PATTAYA:-- Heavy rain in Pattaya yesterday afternoon caused widespread flooding with many of the usual suspects under up to 50 centimeters of water.

But the new underpass that skeptical residents feared would be the first to be submerged in the event of rain came out unscathed.

Workers were still busy on the finishing touches to the underpass in dry conditions as the rest of the resort drowned.

Some 50 centimeters of water was seen in the Sukhumvit/South Pattaya area and floodwater was also deep on Beach Road and Pattaya Sai 3, reported Pattaya News.

One Mitsubishi car got stuck on the central reservation when the driver tried to cross the road to the less flooded other side not realizing that there was a raised portion under the floodwaters.

Heavy rain lasted about one hour around 3pm in the afternoon.

Must have been an unintended design fault which caused it not to flood.

Yeah they shoulda dug it deeper into the hill.

As many here have said all along, hard for it to flood when it's built on a rise.  I'm sure it's possible, but just proven it will have to be a big flood for it to happen.

 

Great news!  Now, let's get it opened!!!! LOL

Total bodge job. One day they will do it properly rather than look for a cheap option, that anyone with a brain can see won't work.

 

Is there actually anyone with a brain in the planning dept. here :sad:

50cm, is that possible? Should it not read 50ml?

Looking at the pics I would suggest it was more than 50ml.

 

50ml is like 4 table spoons, Do you not think there was more than that ?

 

Possibly the 50cm is the depth of water, not the amount that fell from the sky !!

Great that it has not flooded yet, pity the surrounding roads were half a meter deep so no one could get the the underpass.

once those surrounding roads are 5 meters under water then the tunnel may flood. its amusing all the doomsayers saying it will flood but have obviously not seen the rise in the road up to the tunnel (on both sides).
