Phuket’s Patong Tunnel project moving on

Phuket’s Patong Tunnel project moving on

On September 13th 2012 at Phuket City Hall, Deputy Governor of Phuket – Dr.Sommai Preechasilp together with Mr. Bararuzaman Abdullan & Mr. Kawin Loo of AVOS (MALASIA) SDN, held a meeting to discuss the island’s proposed Patong tunnel & light rail projects. AVOS (MALASIA) SDN have already made proposal regarding the construction of both projects.

Mr. Bararuzaman Abdullan revealed the plan for the Patong tunnel. This would feature a 4 or 6 lane elevated road starting from the 4029 intersection in Kathu and lead to Patong beach via a double tunnel through the Nakerd Mountain. It is believed the tunnel length from Patong to Kathu will be 1,581m, and from Kathu to Patong 1,613m. The total length, including the elevated roads, will be 3.08 kilometers.

The tunnel project is being proposed as a way of making the Kathu to Patong Beach journey shorter and less dangerous that the present route, and is currently in the environmental impact investigation stage.
