''I would like to see the two-way syatem restored,'' she said at the west coast tourist hub's municipal offices. ''But the new Phuket police commander flatly rejects the idea, just as the previous commander did.''
Returning to two-ways in Patong would produce nothing but chaos, the mayor said she had been told by the Phuket commander.
''He says the roads are far too narrow for a two-way system and so we have to be content with the one-way,'' she said.
The mayor said she was told by the commander that the residents could help to make the one-way system more effective by parking cars and motorcycles only where they were supposed to park.
