A road leading to the Patong Hill from Kathu in Phuket is now being temporarily closed after it has started to collapse from a landslide.

Now for the update:

Mr. Rewat told the Phuket Express, “The road has already existed which is a shortcut from Chalong and leading to Patong. The total distance is about three kilometers. The road construction was started many years ago but it was unfinished due to an issue on the Forest Department land.”

“We have sent a request to the Forest Department for the road renovation. If they approve, the road renovation project will be started immediately.” The Governor stated.

This road, if completed and approved, will be an alternate route into and out of Patong with the hill road damaged by a landslide and facing extensive repairs.
