The two laned underpass will be one kilometre in length with a raised water pump station located where Chalong Circle now stands.

Project Manager, Chalermpon Wongkietkun, told The Phuket News the he is not worried about completing the job on time even though contracts were signed on July 28 and work has yet to commmence.

“I know that there has been a delay in starting work, but we are finalising our plan now,” he said.

“We have not started the project yet because we need to talk with the Phuket Provincial Electricity Authority about the electricity lines. Some of them must be moved before construction can start,” he added.
