Patong –

Patong hill road works are expected to be completed on schedule if there is no more rain.

A road leading to the Patong Hill from Kathu in Phuket is now being temporarily closed after it has started to collapse from a landslide

Motorbikes are now allowed to pass on the partially collapsed Patong Hill Road from Kathu to Patong and from Patong to Kathu.

Cars are now allowed to pass on the partially collapsed Patong Hill Road but only in the Patong to Kathu lane.

Now for the update:

Yesterday (November 5th) the Kathu District Chief Siwat Rawangkun inspected road work at the area on the landslide damaged Patong hill.

Mr. Siwat told the Phuket Express, “Soil from the landslide area is being removed while new rocks and soil are being put and pressed at the area to increase more strength. If there is no more rain to obstruct the road works, the work is expected to be completed on schedule.”

If the schedule holds, this would be roughly just before Christmas and the busiest time of the year for Patong and Phuket.
