Thailand: PM to Inspect Dredging Projects

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has revealed that she will personally inspect construction works in upstream, mid-stream, and downstream provinces which are part of the flood prevention measures in June.

Speaking after the closing ceremony of a canal dredging project at Klong Sanamchai in the capital, Prime Minister Yingluck said that 50 percent of the planned repair works on sluice gates have been carried out in mid-stream provinces while canal dredging in downstream provinces are 80 percent complete.

The prime minister said she will reiterate to relevant ministers to conduct inspection of flood-control projects together with provincial governors concerned and to forward her their progress reports. Ms Yingluck herself is scheduled to pay visits to affected provinces starting next month.

Ms Yingluck elaborated that in the next stage, the government will integrate the information gained, for use in flood-control preparations, particularly in the flood forecasting system using real-time stream-flow data.

Regarding a stream of complaints lodged by affected residents in flood-hit areas on compensation pay-outs, the prime minister said she will discuss the issue with provincial governors when she visits their respective provinces.
