Governor vows to resolve underpass problems

PHUKET: Protesters this morning handed Phuket Governor Nisit Jansomwong a formal letter of complaint about the dangerous road conditions along the Samkong intersection underpass construction site.

More than 50 signatures were garnered by about 20 peaceful protesters at the much-delayed project site yesterday.

“The protest started because people had been posting photos of potholes and accidents at the construction site,” said Samak Luedwonghad, director of the Phuket Highways Office. “We had actually already responded to the issue and started fixing the road before the protest started [story here].”

The letter of complaint given to Governor Nisit this morning requested more lights be put up at the site, all potholes fixed, the flooding issues better managed and the construction company be pushed to complete the project as soon as possible.
