Misaligned road in Si Racha raises eyebrows

CHONBURI: Residents of Noen Pha Suk village in tambon Nong Kham of Si Racha district have been puzzled by the fact that what is supposed to be a road through their community has turned out to be two, of which ends do not meet properly.

Construction of the two roads began three years ago, starting from opposite directions. They were supposed to meet somewhere in the middle, seamlessly creating one long road. But this was not the case.

The problem stemmed from the fact that each of the roads was built by a different municipality – Laem Chabang and Chao Phraya Surasak.

When the administrators of the two municipalities met on Monday (Sept 26) at the spot where the two roads were supposed to meet, they agreed that the junction was under the jurisdiction of the latter.

They also learned that the owners of two plots of land through which the roads were built had refused to transfer it to be public property, so the municipality was not able to make adjustments to make sure their ends meet properly.

At the request of the municipality, the land owners had agreed to transfer the part of land on which the roads were built to be public property.

Adjustments to the two roads to make their ends properly adjoined would be made after a land transfer paper has been signed by the two owners, said Supong Panchalermchai, the mayor of Chao Phraya Surasak Municipality.

A question which remains unanswered is why the two roads were not built to meet in alignment in the first place.
