More than 100 Sattahip officials, soldiers, volunteers and utility workers tidied up chaotic power, television and internet lines in the city’s most-popular areas.
District Chief Auncha Intasorn and Sattahip Mayor Narong Bunbancherdsri led the squadron of technicians, soldiers, engineers and defense volunteers in the Sept. 4 operation that saw unused cables taken down and live wires tied up and secured.
Workers from 12 companies, including PTT Gas, the Provincial Electricity Authority, cable television, telephone and internet providers participated in the cleanup that began from the start of Sukhumvit Road to the sub-district office, along the whole of Sattahip Beach Road to the Sattahip Naval Base, the “Seven Caskets Circle” area, and Sai Bon Road to Sattahip School.
Sattahip is slated to have all its power and utility lines buried, much as is being done in Pattaya now. But until that happens, Auncha said, the district needs to clean up its image and enhance safety by ensuring that all electrical and utility cables are neat and secure.
