Bridge completion delayed

PHUKET TOWN: Completion of the new bridge over the Klong Bangyai on Kra Rd will take 70 days more than originally scheduled. Fawn Boonkatunyu, Chief of the Technical Office of the Phuket Town Municipality, explained, “We found that a sewer runs right under the place where one of the legs of the bridge is supposed to be anchored, so the plan has to be changed.” He added, “We also have to wait for the Provincial Electricity Authority to move some high voltage cables which are in the way of the construction work.” The Municipality now plans to complete the bridge before January 1, in order not to cause traffic jams on the road to Saphan Hin during the New Year festivities.
