PHUKET: -- Parts of Soi Koh Kaew 33, behind the Isuzu showroom off Thepkrasattri Road in Koh Kaew, are under construction, with crews warning that road closures may inconvenience local residents and workers, including the staff at the Phuket Gazette.

Construction crews reportedly have an 8.4-million-baht budget to build a retaining wall along the side of the soi. Large backhoes and drilling equipment are laying the groundwork along the now-swollen channel that runs parallel to the road.

The wall will be 500 meters long and about three meters tall, says Khuakiet Chitkhua, president of the Koh Kaew Tambon Administration Organization (OrBorTor). We expect to be done with the project by October, but it could be earlier or later than that, depending on the weather.
