Thaweewong Rd will be closed from 11:30pm to 12:30am, Patong Police Chief Col Anotai Jindamanee told The Phuket News.

During the hour, Thaweewong Rd will be closed to traffic from Prachanukroh Rd at the southern end of the beach, near the Absolute Sea Pearl Beach Resort, to Hatpatong Rd, near Loma Park.

“It is only for one hour for the New Year countdown. At this time many people walk across the main road to be on the beach for the countdown to the New Year. We are closing the road just to make it safer,” Col Anotai explained.

“Motorists, please avoid the road during this time. We apologise for the inconvenience,” Col Anotai said.

“We will also have Traffic Police on duty directing traffic at every intersection in Patong,” he added.

“And, as always, don’t drink and drive,” Col Anotai warned.
