Chiang Rai provincial governor Narongsak Sosotthanakorn on Monday presided over the launch of a project to bring all the overhead cables of public utilities underground.

 

The area chosen for the first launch of the project by the Chiang Rai’s civil and town planning office and Chiang Rai’s office of the Provincial Electricity Authority is the famous Wat Rong Khun in Tambon Pa-or Donchai, Muang district.

 

Under the project, all the overhead cables such as electric wires and telephone lines which are seen as an eyesore will be removed and put in tubes and buried underground.

Nah, they probably put a rope inside together with the cables. When they need to add a new cable they connect that one to the rope together  with a new rope. 

That way it is easy to install new cables in that tube IF they make it large enough.

They certainly created a challenge for the urban photographer, I never did quite work out how to photoshop them out.
