A hole was found in the middle of Rama IV Road in Klong Toey on Monday and workers are trying to repair it before motorists and commuters hit the road after work.

The cause remained unknown as of 4pm.

City Hall workers are repairing the road surface before the rush hours, expected to begin at 3-4pm.
