    BANGKOK — City Hall said Thursday it will once again attempt to clear the tangled mess of cables that hang over Bangkok streets, though promising only the undergrounding of communication lines this time.

    Gov. Aswin Kwanmuang said the administration has partnered with the national broadcasting regulator to move all telecommunication cables across the capital underground within two years, as part of its campaign to “beautify the city’s scenery.”

    Aswin said the work will start after the May royal coronation ceremony. The project was granted to Krungthep Thanakom, one of the operators of the city rail network (BTS).

    It's a pity that when Thailand royals and elite started taking on Western technology and all the "nice stuff" (like gold braided uniforms and steam trains) that they didn't take on the science of town planning. Too much value for square metres of land to bother with inconvenient things like giving up land for effective drains, sunlight between buildings, and essential infrastructure.
