The Phuket Highway Office has announced that the roundabout is closed and traffic is diverted around the construction site, effective until November 18.

The new traffic plans will make the underpass construction faster by diverting traffic away from the actual circle area. The contractor is rushing the work schedule during this period, especially over the low season as there are not as many tourists. More shortcut routes have been opened up with signage to assist drivers.

The new traffic flow at the Chalong circle will be…

  • Drivers heading from Chalong Temple to Rawai (on Chao Fah West) can go straight ahead.
  • Drivers heading from Rawai to Chalong Temple (from Viset Road to Chao Fah West) can go straight ahead.
  • Drivers heading from Chao Fa East Road to Chalong Temple can make a U-turn near Soi Suksan 1.
  • Drivers on small vehicles heading from Patak Road to Chao Fa East Road can make a u-turn near Soi Anusorn. Drivers on bigger vehicles can go to a road near Chalong Temple or go to Khwang Road (so they are unable to proceed direct from Patak Road into Chao Fah East).
  • Drivers heading from Soi Suksan 1 to Rawai can turn left and make a U-turn in front of the Super Cheap store.
