New parking restrictions on Phuket Town’s Thalang Rd

According to the statement, only the section of Thalang Rd from Thepkrasattri Rd to Yaowarat Rd, which is one-way westbound, will be affected.

On even dates, from 7am to 7pm, drivers must park on the right (northern) side of the road.

On odd dates, from 7am to 7pm, drivers must park on the left (southern) side of the road.

The restrictions are not in force outside of these hours.

Trucks with six wheels or more are also prohibited from driving along this stretch of the road – at any time.

“There will be no exceptions, even on weekends and public holidays,” Gen Teeraphol said in the statement.

“These restrictions will begin because the road is narrow with a lot of houses and shops along both sides of the road, and the road always has traffic jams during rush hours,” he added.

@Roori: Very easy to explain. The odd/even rule is applied in favor of the people with a business in this road. If there are cars parking every day in front of your shop, it makes it unattractive and has a bad influence on your business. So the odd/even rule puts the burden on all shops the same (well, almost).

As usual, articles are not clear, can some explain why the odd/even days, left side/right side rule? Why not same side every day?

Having Pedestrian zones in Phuket Town is a good idea.
All over the world Smart Cities have pedestrian areas, and when it are shopping streets the revenues of shops did increase.
Be Smart, have Pedestrian areas, Phuket. With big flower pots and benches to sit.!
No need for trials.  Bangla road Patong shows it all.  :-) Even without pot plants.

Oh, just beside this subject.  Two years ago a new police commander introduced himself with a plan to re-direct the one-way traffic roads in Patong.
Many reasons were brought up why it was good to do so.
How far is the study of this project by now?
When the re-routing will take place/become effective?

Agreed, but transportation to/from is a nightmare and where would the parking lot be?? All good and well to close old town streets to vehicles but would have to be done in a clever way & enforced, something I doubt could be achieved there.

Phuket could make a big step ahead and declare the Thalang Rd an other roads in the old Town strictly as Pedestrian Zone. This would give a big boost to tourism in Phuket Town. All the shops, restaurants and hotels would profit. 
Learn from many Citys, especially in Europe. The concepts are already made, just adapt them.
Ban the cars and trucks. Hundreds of tourists would visit the old town every day, not only at Sunday evening.
Innovative actions are asked to remain an international tourist attraction! Make Phuket town attractive for all tourists. Bring the tourists into the town and not only in Gems shops and Duty free halls. The real jewels Phuket has to offer are the historic buildings and the unique ambiance of the historic core.
Anyway the small roads are not made for the daily motorist traffic. I hope the officials have courage and will promote traffic routings around the old town and support bicycle lanes and pedestrian zones for the welfare of Phuket.
