Phase 2 of the project of underground power cables are being coordinated by Phuket City Municipality and The Phuket Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA). All power poles along Krabi Road, Dibuk Road, Thepkrasattri Road, and Phuket Road will be removed. Therefore, power cables will be installed underground in order to bring back the beauty of the Old Phuket Town.
“As for now, all power poles on Krabi Road have been removed. Phuket City Municipality will work on the road so that it can be back to normal as soon as possible. However, once power poles on Dibuk Road will soon be removed by PEA, we will also work on fixing the road,” Phuket City Municipality Public Works Division Director Mr Kraingsak Chuchartphong disclosed.
Mr Kraingsak also added, “Power cables on Thepkrasattri Road from Tua Poh Furniture Store to Aram Bridge will be installed underground due to the problems with telephone cables. However, road excavations have been fixed to prevent traffic and to facilitate residents.”
