Chalong Underpass to close for electrical works

Chalong Underpass to close for electrical works

PHUKET: Both lanes through the Chalong Underpass will be closed from 9am to 1pm tomorrow (Sept 11) while Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) carry out works to the electrical system in the tunnel.

Phuket Highways Office Chief Somwang Lohamut told The Phuket News today that the tunnel closure is to allow PEA workers to “improve and fix the electricity monitor and meters” inside the underpass.

"It must be fixed because the previous work (to the electrics) allowed too much voltage through the system. This has affected the electrical system many times. The PEA must come to change the monitoring system and transformer again," Mr Somwang said.

Regarding several orange plastic poles separating traffic flow through the tunnel being knocked over by vehicles, creating a dangerous hazard inside the tunnel, Mr Somwang said, “Four of these barriers will be removed tomorrow while the underpass is closed for the PEA to complete their work.”

However, Mr Somwang added that he could not confirm whether the poles will be replaced tomorrow.

“I have ordered more barriers and we have been waiting for them to arrive at the Phuket Highways Office,” he said. Whether or not the poles had actually arrived, Mr Somwang would not say.

Mr K, most of acknowledge that to "fix" something properly, the first time, means less money to be made, in the future... LOS, Land of Scams, already so many "troughs" to feed from, but they always want more, their greed is insatiable.

Many lights decorative lights poles are broken. These orange plastic separation poles not serve any purpose.  
They will be broken again and again by non driving license drivers.And ..again, why not do these work at night time, so the traffic get not disturbed? Again change the monitoring system and transformer?  What kind of a nonsense is this every time? can we just do it good in 1 time?
