The main road will be closed to traffic from 3:45pm to 5:30pm, Nopporn Karuna, Deputy Chief Executive of the Kamala Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor) told The Phuket News.

The procession will start at on the main road at the intersection leading to Phuket FantaSea and continue along the Kamala – Patong road (Route 4030) and turn right into Na Hat Rd (also called “Soi Rim Hat” on Google Maps), Mr Nopporn explained.

After proceeding along the Kamala beachfront the procession will turn left onto Layi – Nakha Lay Road, which rejoins the main road through Kamala at the bottom of Kamala Hill.

“From there the procession will return northwards back to the intersection that leads to Phuket FantaSea,” Mr Nopporn said.

“I urge all motorists to plan their journeys around this area while the procession is taking place. All drivers please avoid this road at this time,” he said.

“We apologise for the inconvenience, but this is for our local devotees to honour the Phuket Vegetarian festival,” Mr Nopporn added.

A map of the route would have been far more useful than a picture of the announcement. There are numerous names for the roads so the article is not particularly helpful to those os us who may be affected.
