Bypass road to close for construction

PHUKET CITY: Parts of the bypass road (Chalermprakiat Ror IX Rd) will be closed for two afternoons a week until April because of construction work.

Phuket Provincial Highways Office Chief Thanit Sakiya announced today that traffic will be barred from various parts of the road between 1 pm and 3 pm on Mondays and Thursdays until the first week in April. Drivers will be directed to an alternative route.

K. Thanit explained, “We are expanding the bypass road and there are some areas that need to be cleared with explosives before construction can go ahead.”
