Thepkrasattri Rd renamed – again

PHUKET: The section of Thepkrasattri Rd from Kositwiharn temple to the Sarasin Bridge has been renamed Sathienthapanakij Rd, it was announced today. Visute Maiwattana, Chief of the Provincial Phuket Highway Office (PPHO), said at a meeting with the press, “Sathienthapanakij Rd was the name given to the road in 1950. It was named after the first Chief of the Provincial Phuket Highway Office. “The remaining length of the road south of Kositwiharn temple will continue to be called Thepkrasattri Rd because it is now under the control of the Phuket Town Municipality and not the Highway Office.” Signs with the new name have already been posted along the road, said K. Visute.
