Songkhla Port upgrades facility for better access

Bangkok: Songkhla Port in southern Thailand has renovated its breakwater structures for better ship access.

The thalweg at the port usually becomes shallower during monsoon seasons as waves often sweep sand from the breakwater onto the thalweg. The marine department has decided to renovate the breakwater as a cost-effective solution to the problem.

An official at the port said the renovation is expected to help bolster shipping and logistics business at the port.
