The lane closure is necessary while power-supply repairs are carried out following the landslides that occurred at the site last week, Patong Police Chief Col Sujin Nilabadee said yesterday (Oct 24).

Traffic Police will allow traffic through in one direction for five minutes, then reverse traffic flow for five minutes at a time, he explained.

More traffic police officers have been assigned “to solve the problem and alleviate the suffering of passers-by”, he added.

The repairs, and the lane closure, are currently expected to continue through to Sunday (Oct 30).

People using the road were asked to account for the delays when calculating their journey times.

All credit to the PEA, who have been working all over the island in terrible conditions over the past week restoring power. A Thai agency that does work well.
