Bangkok officials are untangling cables on a major road to improve the city’s appearance and safety. The minister of Thailand’s Digital Economy and Society Ministry said this move on Sukhumvit Road is part of a larger push to better Bangkok’s landscape and promote it as a “lively world class city”.

The National Telecom executive vice president said the agency is ready to cooperate on the initiative with the DES. He said the NT is ready to implement infrastructure sharing to reduce complex expenses, use resources effectively, and improve the city’s looks and safety.

“Also, infrastructure sharing will enable the agency to maintain communication cables effectively”.

The DES minister stressed that the city landscape would improve and be safer for citizens, even though there might be temporary inconveniences for people who live in the area where the cables are being untangled.

The DES ministry posted about the initiative on Facebook yesterday. The post said the DES minister visited the area that day, and all departments communicated very well, including the Office of the Broadcasting Commission. It said that while there might be inconveniences for nearby residents during the operation, once it’s finished, it will be safe to travel back and forth.
