PHUKET: -- Phuket was graced with personal inspections of two key transport facilities by two key transport officials over the weekend.

 

Transport Deputy Minister Pichit Akrathit arrived at Phuket International Airport at 3pm on Friday (April 14) to inspect improvements to services there.

 

Accompanied by Airport Director Monrudee Gettuphan, Mr Pichit specifically inspected the new “In-line” baggage security screening system that was brought online on April 1 to alleviate long queues of tourists waiting to enter the International Terminal to ensure the system was coping with the surge in passenger traffic through the airport during the Songkran holidays.

 

That inspection was followed by another by national Department of Land Transport (DLT) Director-General Sanith Phromwong, who visited Phuket Bus Terminal in person yesterday (April 16) to review Songkran safety measures in effect there.

 

Accompanied by Phuket Land Transportation Office (PLTO) Chief Banyat Kantha, Mr Sanith toured the bus terminal and handed out souvenirs to travellers and gave food and drink to officers for working during the Songkran holidays.

 

“The Department of Land Transport is strict on law enforcement for bus safety during the Songkran holidays, especially on driver alcohol tests – and there are to be no bus accidents and no claims from passengers that there are not enough buses, especially over April 16-17,” Mr Sanith said.

I feel the exact busstops are more important than the busterminal.

Besides the funny story line, The Department of Land Transport is strict on law enforcement for bus safety ..   ..   ..   yes, well not to mention the buss accident on Patong hill on Phuket right?

I have also heard of a pudding bowl haircut, but that was when the bowl was placed on top of the head and cut the hair around the rim. This is the first time I have seen it placed directly onto a persons face? L o l .

Not to those who use the terminal for inter-provincial travel- which is what the bus station is there for.

As I said, the bus station is efficient.

 

There are buses going to all coastal cities BTW, but they depart from the local bus station, not from the inter provincial busstation where the inspection was.

It says the airport busterminal seems all tourists arriving there at the airport need a ride to the coastal cities on the west coast.
