The procession will start at the Put Cho Shirne on Phuthorn Rd at 3pm and conclude at the 72nd Anniversary Queen Sirikit Park on Thalang Rd, explained Phuket City Municipality official Wathakarn Intharat.
Roads to be closed to traffic while the procession proceeds include Soi Phuthorn, the northbound lane of Bangkok Rd, Suriyadej Circle, and Yaowarat Rd from the roundabout northward to Thalang Rd, Mr Wathakarn said.
Both lanes of Thalang Rd, from Yaowarat Rd to Queen Sirikit Park, will be closed, he added.
“The roads will be closed until the procession reached its destination. It may take around 30 minutes,” Mr Wathakarn said.
“Please avoid using the routes and plan alternative routes before traveling,” he added.
