Yuttana Phithak, Director of Phuket Highways Office, announced the need to close the underpass late yesterday afternoon (Sept 14).

On behalf of the Phuket Highways Office, Mr Yuttana apologised for any inconvenience caused by the closure.

The underpass last closed in August so that repairs could be made on pumps installed inside the tunnel.

In June the tunnel closed for 10 days so that the road through the underpass could be resurfaced.

@fascinated, work at night is out of the question with bad ghosts around. Can not use fire crackers in underpass. Clean N-S lane on even days, and S-N lane on odd days. Several times a week! It only needs logic kindergarten thinking.

Several times each year signals come out that the Darasamut Underpass is built sub standard or lack normal maitenance. Pumps replacing? Sub standard pumps or...not keeping daily the underpass clean so that debris during raining not can damage the pumps. To lazy to clean underpass, than have sufficient dirt grates in underpass. It is all so simple.  Underpass is always dirty.

It's a pity that people here can't/won't drive properly so the third lane that used to be there could be used again as originally intended.

Perfect time of day to do it, just as they were doing laying tarmac over the Patong-Kathu hill today. Doing it at night would be just too sensible I guess.
