More entertainment zones mapped out | Thaiger

PHUKET: Muang and Thalang Districts have mapped out the areas in which they propose to have entertainment zones. These areas must be specified in order to meet the requirements of proposed new legislation governing the entertainment industry. In a paper released yesterday, Vice-Governor Amnuay Sanguannam explained that the Muang District plan includes 13 separate entertainment zones – one in Tambon Taladyai, three in Tambon Rassada, two in Chalong, four in Karon and one each in Wichit, Koh Kaew and Rawai. Details of the proposed zones are as follows: – Taladyai: An area stretching 700 meters south from Surin Rd, Soi 2, across Soi 3 and Sri Sena Rd, almost to the waterfront. – Rassada: Along Rassadanusorn Rd from the Thepkrasattri Rd intersection to the Ruam Pattana intersection, stretching 50 meters out from either side of the road. Sri Suthat Rd, from the Phuket Town limit to the entrance of Phuket Housing Project 1, and stretching 50 meters out from either side of the road. Sri Sena Rd, from the Phuket Town limit to the Fishing Port, and 500 meters along the road to the Rassada Port, stretching 50 meters out from either side of the road. – Wichit: From the Phuket Town limit, south along Sakdidet Rd until the intersection with Phattana Thongtin Rd, and stretching 50 meters out from either side of the road. – Rawai: along the road toward Kata for 1,500 meters and from the circle to Chalong pier, in both cases, stretching 50 meters to the south of the road. – Chalong: from Chalong circle along the road toward Kata for 1,500 meters and from the circle to Chalong pier, in both cases, stretching 50 meters to the north of the road. (Note: the border between Chalong and Rawai runs along the middle of the road, so this forms one entertainment zone with the Rawai zone, above.) Along Chao Fa Nai Rd from the tambon limits, south 1,200 meters, and stretching 50 meters out from either side of the road. – Kata-Karon: Patak Rd East, from Wat Suwannaket to the Karon Circle, and stretching 100 meters out from either side of the road. Luang Por Chuan Rd, stretching 100 meters out from either side of the road. Tai Na Rd, stretching 100 meters out from either side of the road. Within a radius of 100 meters of the Kata Center intersection. – Koh Kaew: Chalermprakiat Ror XI Rd (the bypass road), for a distance of 1.2 kms from the intersection with Thepkrasattri Rd, and stretching 50 meters out from either side of the road. In Thalang, 11 entertainment zones are proposed. These are as follows: – Sri Soonthorn: On Highway 4027 (the road towards Pa Khlok from the Heroines’ Monument), from the entrance of the Thalang National Museum to the tambon limit, and stretching out 50 meters on either side of the road. On Highway 4025 (the road to Cherng Talay), from the Baan Bang Jo intersection in Baan Manik, stretching 500 meters along the road, and 50 meters out on either side. – Thepkrasattri: from the 20-km stone on Thepkrasattri Rd to the airport turn-off, and stretching out 50 meters from the road on either side. Both sides of Thepkrasattri Rd from the tambon border (just north of the old airport road), stretching 2 kms to the south. – Sakoo: from the intersection of Highway 4031 (the new airport road) with the road to Nai Thon, stretching 700 meters to the east and 50 meters either side of the road. – Cherng Talay: from the entry to Surin Beach, along the road to Cherng Talay for 1 km, and stretching 50 meters out from either side of the road. From the end of the Tah Yang bridge on Highway 4030, stretching 1 km west along Klong Saneh Poh, and stretching 50 meters south of the road. From the Baan Layan Sala, 1 km south along the Kocktanod-Layan road, and stretching 50 meters out from either side of the road. – Pa Klock: Along the shoreline at Baan Ao Por, and stretching 50 meters inland. – Mai Khao: From 300 meters north of Baan Mai Khao School, stretching 700 meters to the north along the Baan Mai Khao-Suan Maprao road, and stretching 50 meters out from the east side of the road. From 300 meters south of Baan Mai Khao School to the southern limit of Baan Suan Maphrao, and stretching 50 meters out from the east side of the road.
