Photo of tourists amazed by Thailand’s ingenious cabling went viral in November
The cabinet yesterday approved a project to move some of the city’s electric cables underground.
The familiar sight of messy overhead cables will soon disappear from 39 roads in Bangkok. The project is a bid to improve the look of the city in preparation for the launch of the ASEAN Community at the end of 2015, according to deputy government spokesman Maj. Gen. Veerachon Sukhonthapatipark, deputy spokesman of the government.
The 127.3 kilometer route will cover the business and tourist districts along the BTS lines.
