Do u think that hill is the only option to reach Patong?I will just go with my car to Kathu.

Good, send all the buses, trucks etc that way and on to Patong.

Ban them from the hill.

Enjoy the journey after that.

Spend a little bit of the trillions made in Phuket & go ahead with the tunnel.

It should have been finished 15 years ago but the council are toooooooo miserable

Make the road from Hasip Pi to Wat Chalong usable.  It would remove most of the traffic going over the hill to Chalong/Rawai.  Travel time also be reduced.  Go to google maps and check the distance from Don's BBQ to Wat Chalong,  8 km vs 18 km.  You need to click on the option for walking to see the road over the Nakkerd Hills.

All trucks and buses using the hill should be made to have extra and more powerful amulets hanging in the drivers cabin.

There has been a plan for sometime to mine a tunnel through the hill. doesn't seem to get past the plan stage.

Is that because the engineers (?) are still busy with the tunnel / underpass in Pattaya that is almost on schedule?

Wrong- they are only banned for a couple of hours in the morning and a couple of hours at night. Not that this is actually enforced. Maybe YOU should check things out before commenting.

There have been at least 3 or 4 expensive studies made on the tunnel. A good earner for the companies who undertake them. I think no matter how much money Patong Council make all major decisions such as tunnel construction comes from Central govt.

I used to live there but a long time ago, so maybe I am behind the times a bit. Nevertheless, something has to be done as it was happening then and it is still happening now... Call the hill what you want, but the press call it Patong hill I think, even if it is in Kathu district. You could go the long way round back then of course.

So what do you suggest? The only safe answer is a tunnel, as I have agreed with other posters.

Err- I did read your post and what you wrote was WRONG about buses - I take it engrish not yua firt langage!

 

 I quote "Nop they are banned going over the Kathu hill." Pretty clear what you said.

 

if you want to insult people get your facts (and grammar) right.  

 

If you really believe a tunnel will ever be built I have some great swampland for sale as well,.

The biggest danger I see on that hill is the Patong City sign coming up from the Kathu side. The stone wall continues to lean outwards  more & more. It will be catastrophic when it goes which is only a matter of time unless something is done to shore it up.
