Bt 20m for Silaphan Beach upgrade

RASSADA, PHUKET: Rassada Municipality will invest 20 million baht to develop the Silaphan Beach area of Koh Sireh into a new tourist destination.

Speaking at the end of his first year in office, Rassada Mayor Surathin Liangudom said the investment is one of many the municipality is undertaking to improve infrastructure in the subdistrict, which surrounds Phuket City to the north and east.

Infrastructure work completed during Mayor Surathin’s first year included improvements to Thepkrasattri Road to smooth traffic flow and drainage, he said.

On education, the municipality took over administration of the Ban Kuku, Ban Thungka Boonkajon and Ban Koh Sireh primary schools on January 20. The move is part of a national decentralization plan to move schools out from direct administration by the Education Ministry.

For fiscal 2009, the municipality has earmarked part of its budget for sports, educational and environmental development, including a “dust free” road project, he said.

The municipality has also applied for 30-million-baht in provincial funding to build a “health garden” on 11 rai in Village 1.
