OrBorTor chief MaAnn Samran told The Phuket News this morning( Apr 22) that officials from his office are now working on cleaning up the area and it is likely that the cleanup will be complete within a week.

Mr MaAnn said, “Right now we have two backhoes supplied by the Provincial Administration Organisation (OrBorJor) and several six-wheeler trucks and cranes working on-site.

“Most of the debris is large and cannot be moved by hand so we have had to rely on heavy machine which is a lot faster. Hopefully workers will finish the cleanup in one week. After all the debris has been cleared from the site we will clean up and resurface the land to make it attractive,” he said.

“We did not put up signs to keep people out of the area as we believe residents and tourist know what is going on and not to come near the site. A few people have come close to the site, but only to take photos,” Mr MaAnn added.

Phuket Vice Governor Chokdee Amornwat on Tuesday (Apr 19) noted that after the demolition, Surin Beach was to become a beach honouring HM The King and Queen known as Rajabhakti Park, a place of education for the future. (See story here)

Clean-up completed in a week...? Pretty optimistic...but they are chipping away at it.  While I am glad that most of this stuff is gone, I continue to dread whatever moron ...er, Ma-Ann will do next.  As I have mentioned, he is not a visionary nor an engineer, and has brought nothing good to Surin or BangTao. The last plans that I saw had some ugly-ass linear park and seawall. The seawall will be ...
