Residents of Moo 6 Baan Ya say that Thungsuerkhwan Rd has been in dire need of repairs for more than six months and has been the site of many accidents.

The damaged section of road is 2.7km long and has no street lights at night.

The residents accuse Srisoonthorn of doing nothing to fix the road, and today began placing sandbags marked with flags in huge potholes to warn people of the danger.

Srinsoonthorn Mayor Worawut Songyot told The Phuket News today (Sept 2) that his office is aware of damaged road.

"But the road belongs to the Department of Rural Roads and is on the boundary of Srisoonthorn subdistrict,” he said.

“We are waiting for the budget from Phuket Provincial Office and the Department of Rural Roads is already looking for a contractor to repair the damaged section along that road," he added.

Already more than 6 months (!!)
And the Mayor said:.." We ALREADY looking for a contractor to repair the damaged section along that road".. 
Many accidents happend already, and just hiding behind that usual budget talks?

What is wrong on Phuket that it needs 6 months to find a bit of money to repair a short stretch of road and prevent more accidents?

It is really a script for a thai soap opera.

And Phuket has aspirations for becoming 'hub this', and 'hub that'?
How about just trying only to keep up with the daily island needs working/functioning.
Why is it that on Phuket the most logic and simple things are always made so unneeded difficult and done very slow?
