Bangkok street cables to be relocated to turn it into Smart Metro
BANGKOK, 11 August 2017 (NNT) – Authorities have begun to relocate electricity and utility cables along Pahon Yothin road in effort to turn Bangkok into Smart Metro.
Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda presided over the launching ceremony for the campaign to relocate electricity and utility cables by the Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) and related agencies.
The campaign aimed to relocate electricity and utility wires underground at Chatuchak Park on Pahon Yothin road to improve the landscape aesthetically and facilitate future development of Bangkok as an ASEAN metropolitan.
The MEA plans to remove 800 electricity poles along Pahon Yothin road from Lad Prao intersection to Victory Monument. The work will be carried out into four phases. The removed poles will be donated to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration for use in its anti-erosion project along Bang Khun Thian seashore.

Up to 2 days ago, they were burying cables and left a huge pile here for the last 2 weeks. Crowds of people had a gap about 18'' wide to squeeze through. Obviouly being Thai, they won't complain. The monkeys doing the work know that.
Wow, they've actually cleaned something up.
Oh well, you can stop gasping.
