    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.

    Tomorrow I'm gonna take a pic of a scene on PhahonYothin Rd that's been there a week now.

    Very relevant to this thread.

    I can hear you all gasping in anticipation

    No, because then it would not be "in anticipation", it would be at the revelation.
    You're allowed two different gasps.

    Well Pat's last promised exclusive was a photo portfolio of farang beggars in Bangkok, complete with in-depth interviews.

    He seems to have revised his ambitions downwards.

    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.

    I think your anticipated sigh is more in order.

    Yeah, I remember that...c'mon Pat. The beg-tourists have made life a bit difficult for some who live here. An expose is required for us to grumble at.
