A toilet building now under construction and finished April 25 sharp??
Wow, more than 3 months building a toilet unit?
Make me think about that Hua Hin park, with gold plated toilets. 

Must be all created with a lot of commission money. Guess that was always the 'drive' about that gateway nonsense.
It never became something, and never will be in future. Except the toilets, of course.

The best 'new landmarks' will be: 
Good pedestrian walks, protected parking spaces for private cars, now 'bullied away' by tuk tuk drivers
A lot of rubbish bins on the beaches
Spend money on ending the free polluting dirty water flow at beaches
Set your priorities, Phuket
Phuket gateway? Nonsense. Is and remain a disaster, with or without turtle.
Put the turtle at airport.
