PHUKET: Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has stressed the importance of making the bidding for the planned light-rail project in Phuket as universal as possible, the Mass Rapid Transit Authority said today (July 10).

 

Gen Prayut made the remark about the 41.7 kilometre light-rail route from Phuket International Airport to Chalong intersection during his visit to Phuket on Monday (July 8 ) for the official grand opening ceremony of the Chalong Underpass.

 

He opened his speech at the ceremony with “Sawasdee, Bangkok”, before apologising for the confusion and blaming it on Bangkok and Phuket having the same problem: traffic congestion.
