The announcement came following a closed-door meeting held by Vice Governor Snith Sriwihok and Phuket Highways Office Director Patiwetwoottisak Sookki on Thursday (Nov 10) at the Phuket Highways Office to discuss land transportation development on the island including the U-turn flyover project to be built on the 402 route.

Following the meeting, V/Gov Snith, who over presided the meeting, revealed that Phuket had already started the U-turn flyover project after the Department of Highways signed the construction contract on August 9.

However, since then a number of residents have opposed the project and sent letters of complaint to the Ombudsman Office stating that the project was not appropriate.

“Phuket Highways Office received order from the Ombudsman’s Office to reexamine the U-turn flyover project planned for route 402 and were instructed to make a decision on how to proceed with the project,” V/Gov Snith said.

“When we held a meeting with relevant officials, the majority of officials agreed to proceed with the project because at the last public hearing the majority of residents approved of the project and said they believed it will help solve traffic congestion for the island.

“The Phuket Highways Office will bring the conclusion of today’s meeting to the Ombudsman’s Office and will talk with those residents who do not want the project to go ahead.

“Officials will explain to those residents that if the project does not go ahead it will have legal ramifications because the Department of Highways have already signed the contract,” he added.

Wow , 'officials' threaten the  residents now with legal ramifications because the contract already signed. Wow!
Well, was the contract signing legal? Or just very quick un-thai pushed through?
According respective thai laws?

So, now we wait respectfully for outcome ruling by the Ombudsman.

Wish this Vice Governor starts presiding over the Chalong Underpass building affair. 
They are 'working' on it since October 2015, but nothing is happening.
Just a few labor around during bank office hours.
