The government has allocated more than 59 million baht to the underground construction project in the island province’s major city district. According to the head of the Provincial Electricity Authority’s Patong office, tourists had complained about electrical poles and cables.

According to Phuket City Mayor Saroj Angkanapilart, the 600-meter-long subterranean construction project would be on Phuket Road between the Bang Neaw Intersection and Soi Kor Pai. A big construction project in Phuket will start next month and be completed in April 2023. Authorities from Phuket put power and communication lines on Bangla Road in Patong, a city on the west coast of Phuket, last year. Beginning in 2019, the installation of cable across Patong was finished in 2021. However, Mayor Saroj believes that the construction project in Phuket’s city district will be completed in less time than a year. Only time will tell if it is possible.


The construction is expected to cause substantial traffic delays, therefore motorists are encouraged to avoid the area if at all possible. According to Mayor Saroj, the project would cost a total of 59,723,000 million baht. He asserted that the construction allegedly pushed them below in an effort to improve the area.
