Phuket's underpasses are of sub standard quality. Given that fact they need service/clean 3 times a month at night to keep up. Perhaps the budgets were not fully spent on quality construction. Go to S'pore to learn about maintenance of many km's long tunnels and underpasses at night times.

This  underpasses are not that's old so why is there always one under repair? Nobody wanted them in the first place the costs where ridicules and now they falling apart and the same companies repair them !
