Roadside Billboards


Roadside Billboards are Banned from Now On, Says Phuket Governor.

Governor Nisit Jansomwong announced yesterday that roadside billboards are banned on Phuket from now on – even those that carry his image.

Highways department Director Samak Leardwonghat said he was pleased to hear it had been declared as a national policy.

”In the past, my staff has worked Monday to Friday removing billboards only to find replacements put out over the weekend,” he said.
