One lane over the hill will be closed from 9pm tomorrow night, Yuttana Phithak, chief of the Phuket Highways office, explained in an announcement issued late today (June 24).

Traffic over the hill will be reduced to one lane through to 5am Sunday morning (June 26), Mr Yuttana said.

The area to be affected is the steep section of road on the Kathu side near the Patong City sign, he added.

Firstly, the sign cost 6 million Baht.
Secondly, Pian had nothing to do with it. Look no further than a certain Phuket female MP who also built the Welcome Gate.

How long is that lane on Kata Hill now closed? Waiting for wall- and road repair? 1 Year, 1.5 years?

The city sign is looking decidedly dodgy these days and has a heck of a lean on it. B9m (not) well spent. Its a landslide waiting to happen. Pian vanity project. Anyone want to make a book on whether it lasts through to next year's wet season? You read it here first folks.
