The pipes, marking what a restaurant owner believed to be the boundary of his land, have since been removed.

Speaking to The Phuket News today (May 19), Chief of the Cherng Talay OrBorTor Ma-Ann Samran said that he was notified of the pipes being placed in the sand last Saturday.

“I was notified that a large number of blue pipes had been placed in the sand at Bang Tao Beach last weekend, and I believe the pipes were placed there by the owner of a restaurant who became upset after the Royal Thai Army inspected the beach line at Bang Tao Beach and the restaurant put the pipes there to mark their boundary,” Mr Ma-Ann said.

“However, I informed the District Chief that they needed to speak to the restaurant owner about their actions as the pipes have been placed on public land which comes under the jurisdiction of the Phuket Marine Office.

“The District Chief has done as I requested and the pipes have now been removed,” he added.

Good grief, is Cherng Telay to be stuck with Ma-Ann Samran forever? He should have been voted out three years ago. Why are there not at least local elections?

Sam hayman: As long local officials can shuffle/wagging around to favor their own thing, that long Phuket beaches remain a mess.
The story of the blue PVC pipes,hahahahah, who well thinking ever would expect such?

Anyway, once again we read that beaches are public land, but in a few months time that will be forgotten again.
Guess because Phuket Marine Office is not a strong and strict Governm...

When the hell are they going to remove all these monkeys from the beach? I'm referring to the beach mafia and their associates.
