# Yes ...  But look at the equipment they use, this equipment was used in the 1950s in Europe. It is simply embarrassing to Thailand and it proves again that Thailand is still a U country and not a Industrial Country as they try and be.

And as usual here, just the easy 45% parts are done. Was in March 40%. So just 5% in last 2 months
The left 55% to do are more difficult and time consuming
Astonishing that such a project is not done with 7 x 24 hours work weekly
Working hours like school hours.Amazing Phuket
Planning a construction time difficult,calculating commission easy

The initial construction contract commenced on 28 July 2015, with a completion date set for 14 September 2017.

Today, Friday 11 May 2018, it is only 40% done.

So, 3 years for 40% means they will need 4 years more to achieve 100% of the whole project at the speed they work.

Am-I right or not?

I thought they delayed the start of the contract a few years ago to do this? Optimistic comments made. The whole place looks a complete mess
