Opening of new Phuket bridge postponed

PHUKET: The unofficial opening Phuket’s new bridge, the Srisoontorn Bridge, originally scheduled for this week, has been postponed, officials say.

Arun Sa-nae, director of the Provincial Highways Office in Phuket, said some last-minute changes in the work plan meant that the new span would probably open to off-island traffic around mid-June.

The final work by project contractor Italian-Thai Development involved the final surfacing of the road and the painting of lane markers, he said.
