Officials follow up on road repairs near Phuket Airport in Thalang

Thalang, Phuket –

The Phuket Vice-Governor followed up on road improvement construction near the Phuket International Airport in the Thalang district which is 11 percent behind schedule, according to the Vice-Governor.

Yesterday (June 15th) a team of officials led by Phuket Vice Governor Pichet Panapong inspected No. 4031 Road (Mud Dok Khao- Airport).

Vice Governor Pichet told The Phuket Express, “The construction started on March 10th this year and is scheduled to be finished on October 5th this year which will be in total 210 days of work.”

“Now the work is in the process of installing water drainage. After that the road will be placed under construction for resurfacing. However, the work is 11 percent behind schedule.”

“The Phuket Highway Office is urging the contractor to expedite their work so that road users can use the road as normal as currently we have had many complaints. Some parts of the road are now temporarily closed to traffic.” Pichet continued.

It was not immediately clear, notes The Phuket Express, how the project would be expedited or when.
