The new chief of the Phuket Highways Department Prinya Haijai told The Phuket News today that underpass constructors Italian-Thai Development Corporation Limited (ITD) have been told about the problem on a number of occasions following complaints made by local motorists.

“I have informed Italian-Thai Development Corporation Limited (ITD) a few time about this problem following complaints,” he said.

“They have told me that when it rains, water sits in a gap between concrete layers in the roof of the underpass and that this water is the rainwater coming from a drainage hole which has been made so the rain water can escape.

The company has assured me that they will start work on a long-term solution to fix the problem in early August.” he added.

And what is an ocean, but a multitude of excess rainwater....

Wondering why they didn’t go for an overpass which I assume would be cheaper to build and no problems with flooding. As Phuket seems to turn in to a big city – safety before beauty that’s perhaps the right way concerning roads.
