Old Phuket Town goes underground


The Phuket City Mayor is warning of inconvenience to traffic in Old Phuket Town while work is underway installing underground cabling.

The Phuket City Mayor Somjai Suwansuppana says, “We are working on the underground cable system in Old Phuket Town areas – Phang Nga Road and Rassada Road. The work is 62 percent complete. The new underground electrical supply is now being installed with new cabling and manholes on Rassada Road until September 16.”

“While the work is underway the construction might affect traffic and residents’ daily lives in the area. We apologise for the inconvenience. Please be careful when traveling close to the construction area in order to avoid any accident.”

“After the underground cable system is completed, Old Phuket Town will have all the overhead cabling and poles gone and the new services out of sight. The city will be an international tourism destination which generates a lot of income for Phuket. The city is a unique town which represents the local lives and conservation of the old trade town.”
