The road has been closed for safety, officials reported.

Motorists looking to access Golfland View Village or use the road to access British International School, Phuket are affected by the road closure.

Police have set up traffic cones and barriers to redirect traffic away from the danger zone, a section of road washed away by erosion brought on by the ongoing  heavy downpours that have strafed the island.

Officials apologised for any inconvenience caused while repairs to the road are organised.

It would be useful if more information were provided as to what road this is. There are several road to the BIS, and many people will not know where Golfland View Village is. Personally I know at a glance where this bend is, but many will not. A map, or a description of which road would be useful. But maybe the PN doesnt know either ......
