Both the northbound and southbound lanes through the underpass will be closed while the work is being conducted, Phuket Highway Office Director Somwang Lohanut confirmed in a notice issued today (Aug 31).

The tunnel will be opened as soon as the work has been completed, Mr Somwang said.

“The work should be finished by about 3pm. I apologise for any inconvenience during this time,” he added.

The center lane lights can be removed and kept as spare as there is no center lane. Water pump repair/replacement once every 6 months? Just because Underpass is not kept clean.
No need when they keep underpass road clean/free of dirt/plants/plastic and small stones. Pumps don't like it.

Why don't they do it at night?  Easy answer, because that would be logical, nothing about Thai thinking/planning is logical, same as when you go to the shop, aisles full of boxes and people filling shelves whilst you are trying to shop!

Good and very legitimate question, Kurt.  Also, why is there almost no one working on the Chalong roundabout? What a nightmare!  Surely, there is not a labor shortage.

Why are underpass works on Phuket not done during night hours? Like in other 4.0 countries?  Why not taking busy day time traffic in consideration as reason to do it during nights?
