“We will close the underpass today from 10am until around 1pm. One of the four water pumps are broken, so we will remove it and fix it, then put it back in,” said Deputy Director Pijak Sonchana.
“The works will require bringing a crane in to get the pump out,” he added.
Meanwhile, the signal light issue which was brought to attention last week is said to still have not been fixed, according to Highways Department electrical technician Warakorn Jawana.
“We are waiting for some repair parts to be delivered from Bangkok. It depends when they arrive,” he said.
“We will conduct multiple repairs at once,” he added.
The errant traffic-flow lights at the southern end of the tunnel as of last Tuesday (Feb 27) still remain uncorrected today, while the lane lights above the northern entrance to the tunnel are not working at all. (See previous story here.)
