Road-resurfacing in Kathu leaves traffic hazard

Good news for people driving around the Kathu Ring Road (specifically the section going past the Loch Palm Golf Course entrance), the roads are being resurfaced from the entrance of Soi Namtok to near the entrance of Loch Palm Gof Course today (Monday).

Bad news, the roadmakers have left a 8-12 cm gap between the surface of the road and the road grates they’ve paved over, leaving a substantial hazard for motorbikes. Just in the five minutes we were there taking photos and video, four or five bikes had near-accidents trying to ride over one of these newly-made depressions in the road. You could hear the suspension on the scooters bottoming out as they tried to ride over them.

This is a substantial road hazard, without any warnings or traffic diversions and we would urge all road users to share this post and alert other road users in the area to proceed with caution until the situation is fixed up, IF it’s fixed up.
