Mr Jaroon, a resident of Anuphas Phuketkarn Rd in Phuket Town, was riding his black Honda Dream motorbike towards Wat Ban Don.

Local residents at the scene said that the road had become dangerous at night with no lighting while the road resurfacing continues, with more and more accidents occurring.

“It has been a long time, nearly a year, but the construction still has not yet been completed,” one resident said

“At night, especially during rainy nights, it is very difficult to see any other vehicles, and more and more accidents are happening,” she added.

That construction has been going on much longer than a year. More like 3 years. They don't have a clue what they are doing. Some sections are raised up a meter on a pile of fill that makes no sense at all. Never seen anything like it before. You would think a road should be one flat, smooth, even surface. But not here apparently.

Quite common on the roads here to hit roadworks , holes and other obstructions that are never properly marked. Police- 'not my responsibility'. Orbator- 'not my responsibility'. Contractor- 'not my responsibility'.
