KARON BEACH: Construction started earlier this month on Phase I of a 10 million baht football stadium and grandstand at Karon. Located on 10 rai of land on Bang Ngueg Road (the ‘Beach Road’) at the south end of the beach near the Ruam Thep Inn, the 1,000-seat, 117-meter-long facility is slated for completion in September. Tawee Thongchaem, head of the local Karon district sanitation office, told the Gazette today that Phase II of the project will commence early next year. It will include construction of an additional grandstand, a gymnasium, and a basketball court, making the facility what Tawee termed the “best equipped sports center in Phuket.” Rates for usage of the facility are not as yet available. Tawee says that they will be determined by the Sports Authority of Thailand (SAT) and announced in August or September of this year.
