About 30 people who live in lanes around the junction told Governor Nisit Jansomwong that the pressure of traffic along Phuket's main road often makes it close to impossible for them to join the bumper-to-bumper stream that confines their movements.
One resident, Wijit Chamnina, 58, said he worked as a contractor and always had a lot of trouble getting out of his soi and then back again.
Police have proposed banning parking along the main road through Koh Kaew to enable traffic to flow more smoothly. Often, three lanes of traffic have to contract to two through the area.
Governor Nisit said he would look at the solutions on offer and perhaps try them one by one to see which option relieved the problem.
