BANGKOK, 22 August 2012 – The Metropolitan Waterworks Authority (MWA) has used 2 billion baht on laying new water pipelines across Bangkok to support the growing population.
A team of MWA executives and the press visited the construction site of a new pipe in front of the Chinese Embassy on Ratchadapisek Road. The new pipeline is 1 meter in diameter and 2.8 kilometers long, starting from Rama IX Road to the bridge over Khlong Bang Sue.
The construction is taking place at night to avoid causing inconvenience to commuters. The MWA has cooperated with traffic police in preparing alternative routes and facilitating the traffic.
Besides this project, 11 more pipelines have been laid across Bangkok, altogether worth 2 billion baht. All of the new pipes will enable the MWA to increase water pressure and provide enough water to more people in the future.
