The works to install the cables underground along Rassada Rd will be completed before the end of August, and the works along Phang Nga Rd will be completed by the end of next month, DPT-Phuket Tawee Homhuan confirmed today (May 15).

Mr Tawee delivered the news during an inspection of the works today led by Phuket Vice Governor Prakob Wongmaneeroong.

Mr Tawee explained that all the power cables needed along have already been installed underground.

“We now just need to finish installing all the communications underground before switching the system over,” he said.

Works along the 577 metres of Phang Nga Rd is about 60% complete, Mr Tawee explained.
