The office posted a notice announcing the close, from 9am to 4pm each day this morning (Oct 23) ‒ the same day the daylight closure came into effect. The Highways Office apologised for any inconvenience caused by the three-day closure.

Meanwhile, Darasamut Underpass near Central Phuket shopping mall will be closed from 9am to 4pm during May 24-31 as workers repaint the kerb, tunnel walls and concrete barriers through the tunnel.

Darasamut Underpass was closed only earlier this month as workers conducted maintenance in the tunnel. In that closure workers performed maintenance, cleaning and dredging of the drainage system inside the underpass.

Don't forget, police men get a percentage of the fines! Furthermore, look entrance hall Chalong Hospital, all directives in Thai only. Totally ignoring that Naiharn, Rawai, Kata/Karon, Chalong are tourist areas. A friend visited First Aid Chalong ....

Once again I urge the appropriate officials to upgrade the signage that is supposed to stop motorbikes entering the underpass. Small signs only in Thai language placed where it is too late to stop or turn around once you finally notice them. Okay for us that know but once you get tourists coming back....
