Pupils from Ban Non Phutsa and Ban Non Chong Long schools, together with residents of Krachon sub-district in Phimai, repaired the five-kilometre, heavily potholed Krachon-Dongyai road that provides access to their villages.
The damage to the tarmac road had became even more severe this rainy season, so local people and children brought baskets, hoes. mattocks and shovels to spread gravel and dirt to fill in the holes as a makeshift solution.
The road stretches along an irrigation canal and is under the jurisdiction of the Department of Rural Roads. The department is seeking a 20 million baht budget for the repairs, but does not expected to receive the funds until early next year.
