The busy junction in front Supalai Park Condominium will be closed for traffic from 9am through 4pm so the workers can safely do the pruning, Phuket City Municipality announced in a Facebook post.

The work is conducted “to prevent the danger of trees falling during storms and strong winds”. It was not explained if the traffic will be stopped completely or limited in some way.

The municipality apologised for any inconvenience caused while the work is carried out.

Need to do this everywhere there are power lines on Phuket. Many idiots around where I live who don't trim their trees and we get frequent power outages as a result. Should start fining people who don't keep their trees away from power lines. In my country if you don't the council does it, charges you the cost and takes you to court if you don't pay.
