Local community and school are flooded as a result of the new MRT Pink Line

Sujittra reported that 200 nearby homes were flooded. The school was closed for two to three days while the water level was high. The Samarn Pichakorn School’s 52-year-old director Sujittra Maiphrom filed a complaint on September 4. She wants the building sector to cover flood damage costs. Sujittra claims that this is the second flood the school has experienced this year. The 50-centimeter water damage to the classroom floors and furniture was particularly severe in the first-floor kindergarten. Sujin Chaichumsak, the province governor of Nonthaburi, accepted all the issues and authorized the building company to address them. Samarn Pichakorn School is closed this week. Sujittra is unsure of the exact date that it will reopen. Both testing and building are still going on. Most of the stations will be operational by July, with a couple opening in February. The MRT Pink Line project, according to the head of a school in the Nonthaburi province, which is near Bangkok, caused floods. The construction company was contacted for an explanation after the school’s administration reported a crime. The governor gave the order to switch off the water at midnight. Sujittra was alerted by the provincial police that sand from the MRT construction site had clogged the sewer. A construction company changed the drainage at Soi Thiwanon 14. Building supplies obstructed recently built water pipes, stopping the flow of water. Sujin requested that the construction company drain the neighborhood and school by midnight. If the problem cannot be fixed, the project will be delayed. MTA Thailand is in charge of the MRT Pink Line. On its journey from Nonthaburi Civic Center to Min Buri in Bangkok, the line stops at 30 stations. Sujittra has worked at the school for 30 years and has never encountered floods despite being 300 meters from the canal.
