The Phuket Provincial Public Works and Town and Country Planning Chief Tawee Homhuan says, “All electric cables on Phang Nga Road have already been moved underground but some other television cables are still on power poles.”
“It is expected that all cables will be moved underground during June. Cables on Rassada Road will be moved underground during August. So the Old Phuket Town underground project will be finished this August.”
The ambience of the Old Town has been substantially improved with new paving and the removal of the messy overhead cabling in recent years.
