Jungceylon is hoping to re-open the closed areas on Monday (July 31).

The Port open-air zone and the underground market called That’s Siam were closed off on June 8 after several structural pillars showed signs of crumbling. (See story here.)

The formal inspection is required before officials can grant approval to re-open the areas that have been closed off for more than a month.

“We are ready to open any day. Our engineers have already reported the repairs done to Patong Municipality. We are just waiting for the Governor to approve the repairs,” Slilla Svetsreni, Senior Public Relations Manager at Jungceylon, told The Phuket News today

“The work in the area has been completed. I was told that workers put supporting poles around the damaged pillars and they replaced the damaged pillars with a new ones.

“Our lead engineer cannot pinpoint what caused the damaged, but he said there are many factors that may be responsible for this. He assured that the issue had been rectified and officials from Patong already inspected the work on Tuesday (July 26),” said Ms Slilla.

Oh my...Pal Joey, you really are losing it. Failure of a support structure is indicative of a much more serious structural problem.  With the shoddy construction that happens here as well as the lack of oversight by any building officials that know nothing other than how to fleece a developer and construction contractor, I agree with tamvong, that this place is a disaster waiting to happen.  Joey, put down the Chang, slide off your barstool, and leave the OTEP Village and get out there and smell the sewage.

yip, i have to agree with the jist of all comments there.possibly the same engineers who checked the old tiger disco building after the fire and condemned the building as the metal support in the risers had melted. well f*ck a duck, its reopened, upstairs has been renovated and no ones in jail for the death of four people through criminal negligence.yup, patong, thats progress !!

"Our lead engineer cannot pinpoint what caused the damaged." This is an appalling statement. If they don't know what caused the failure how can they possibly know the rest of the structure is safe? This could be a disaster waiting to happen.

I fail to see how knowing how or why a concrete pillar/s failed, is going to stop the world from turning around for you two clowns. Unbelievable. It's been replaced. Why bother.

Structural pillars were crumbling.
The lead engineer can not pin point what cause the damage, but many factors that may responsible for it.
Can the lead engineer name a few factors?

Is the continuing delay in opening the underground section and the open air walking space above it because there is no Official willing to take the responsibility for reopening? 
Some Official now has to step forward and say:..." I take the responsibility"...  
Interesting, who?

Classic line by Thai official... “Our lead engineer cannot pinpoint what caused the damaged [Translation = "We don't know what the hell is wrong...roof go kaput"], but he said there are many factors that may be responsible for this [translation = "Your guess is as good as mine"]. He assured that the issue had been rectified [translation = "just shut up and go shopping...no pombem] and officials from Patong already inspected the work on Tuesday [translation= yes, ready to come shopping and spend money"]. Incredible how a failure in the support structure is all repaired, even though they don't know what was wrong.  I seriously doubt that they really know the extent of damage, but the #1 issue is to keep the baht flowing.  I'm sure the Governor will look and see that all is good, then we can all rest easy.
