Is cleaning road deck and water release holes also part of maintenance? During last maintenance that was not addressed. Before and after last maintenance the same greenery was there, untouched. Advice drivers to observe before/after maintenance and see for themselves.

I think this is only in Thailand they close Day time for Maintenance.
Why not close after Midnight ?
