Is there a new road from Patong to Phuket City?
Having read your news article about German architect Frank Witzel facing deportation, I checked out the Patong View Talay website as the project site is on Phra Baramee Soi 3, where I also have a property.
On the company’s website is a map showing a road running parallel to Phra Baramee Soi 3 marked as the “New Road to Phuket Town”. As I overlook this new road, I wonder if someone in local government could provide further planning information on it?
Tim Goodman, Patong.
Our department has no plans to build a new road to Phuket City. The road you refer to simply serves as an access road for a community of about 20 families to get to the main road. It is a dead end and I can confirm with complete certainty that there are currently no plans to extend it to serve as a new road to Phuket City.
