This morning (October 21st) the Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew has inspected the Bypass Road area to consider how risky it is to possibly cause more landslides.
The Phuket City Traffic Police reported today (October 21st) that the Phuket Governor has ordered a temporary closure on the Chalermprakiat Rama 9 Road (Bypass road) in Rassada sub-district, Mueang Phuket district for safety.
The closure is on the northbound lane from the U-turn near the Sri Suchart Housing Estate to the U-turn in front of the Outlet Mall which is about one kilometer.
Meanwhile, motorists heading out from Phuket city have to use the same lane on the southbound lane with motorists heading into the city instead of one way.
