The Director of Prachuab Khirikhan Provincial Office of Department of Highways (Hua Hin) has provided information about the installation of waste water pipes in the Phetchakasem-Boh Fai areas and associated traffic issues.
The Director also talked about problems because some drivers of rental cars and hotel/guesthouse shuttles dominate some roads and use them as their own car parking space. According to the Director of DoH Hua Hin, Mr. Set Chan-aj, the installment of waste water pipes in the Phetchakasem-Boh Fai areas, from Klai Kangwon Palace to Hua Hin Airport, aims to improve public waste water management for local people in the area. With the a budget of 16 million THB, the waste water pipes will release waste water to a canal beside a Buddhist temple next to the Klai Kangwon Palace. This project will be finished in April 2017. The next project of the DoH Hua Hin is to expand roads from Buddha Chaiyo Temple to Suan Son. In addition, the entrance to Hua Na local community requires road improvement for the safety of drivers. The DoH will also improve the areas and landscape in front of Rajabhakdi Park by planting more trees and providing more public toilets and car parking spaces.
With regard to the issue of public transport drivers, especially motorcycle taxis and rental cars, parking their vehicles on public roads, the Director said that this was a great concern. He asked those drivers to see if the curb is painted red and white or yellow and white. Red and white indicates no parking. Finally, the director of DoH asked local people and tourists in Hua Hin to inform authorities about drivers who violate traffic regulations. While the DoH is responsible for taking care of the highways in Thailand, it is the Police who enforce these laws and take care of people.
