PHUKET:A new video shows what motorists can expect when the Patong Tunnel opens, linking east and west Phuket with greater efficiency.
While protests and environmmental impact statements are among hurdles to be overcome, the footage from the Transport Department's Office and Traffic Policy and Planning, offers a visual guide to what the tunnel could be like.
There are toll gates and a left-hand lane that could be used by motorcycles but is more likely to be purely for safety purposes.
The video does, however, show motorcyclists heading towards the tunnel.
The department says that if everything else was in order, the dig through Phuket's Patong Hill could begin in the middle of next year.
