Traffic light configuration in Rawai

Thank you for the useful information. I will have our officers inspect the junction and integrate the information you have provided with our road safety plan.

I will then discuss the matter with other relevant authorities and have it fixed as soon as possible.

We are currently working on updating road-use information to make the roads under our responsibility safer for drivers.

In coordination with other authorities, we plan to survey Wiset Road, in order to identify the “black spots” that need rectifying to improve safety.

It will probably not be fixed this fiscal year, but we will get to it as soon as we can.
