Patong Mayor Chamlermluk Kebsap signed the MoU with Managing Director of Communication Network System Co Ltd Mr Somchai Khajornwiphak at the Phuket Graceland Resort & Spa.

Ms Chamlermluk explained, “The MoU has been signed so that the overhead cables on Patong beach road can be placed underground thus improving the scenery of the area.

“Patong Municipality sees the importance of improving the scenery in the area, especially along the beach area where residents and tourists want to enjoy the natural scenery. We need to rid the area of pollution and unpleasant sights so that we can be ready for when Phuket becomes a Smart City under the concept of Beautiful and Smart,” she said.

“We have yet to set a date for the contractor to begin the first phrase of the project which will be along Taweeewong Rd. We have to go through details of project with them again later this month,” she added.

Mr Somchai thanked Patong Municipality for selecting his company for the project and said, “We are ready to invest and work on this project which will benefit Patong Municipality and the public. We will help improve this beach town and help make it one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and of course make it into a Smart City. Once complete Patong will be a tourist's paradise.”
