Construction rubble dumped on Phuket beach

PHUKET: A pile of construction rubble dumped along the Kalim beachfront, north of Patong, will remain there for up to a month, despite the debris including rusty steel rods protruding out of the sand.

The rubble has not been dumped illegally, it has actually been dumped with permission from Patong Municipality, Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kepsub told The Phuket News this week.

“We know who dumped it there, and they are allowed to leave it there for a while, but it will be removed,” she said.

At first reluctant to admit who had been given special permission to dump rubble along the public beachfront, Mayor Chalermluck admitted that the rubble was from the demolition of a nearby mosque.

“The building was old and had to be knocked down, and they are building a new one,” she said.

“We have been promised that the rubble will be removed within a month,” she added.

The rubble was initially dumped on the area beside the beach, known locally as called Suan Nok (bird field), but has now spilled onto the sand to be battered by strong waves brought on by the southwest monsoon.

Mayor Chalermluck noted that dumping rubble or any other form of refuse on public land was usually deemed illegal.

“Generally people can’t dump any trash or anything else on public areas. If they do that, they will be charged for doing so,” Mayor Chalermluck said.

Regarding the dangerous steel rods protruding through the sand, Mayor Chalermluck told The Phuket News today (May 10), “I will arrange to have signs posted to warn people about it.”

Ha!...this is classic Thai officials.  Of all the places on this island they could have temporarily dumped this debris...they pick one of the few beaches that gets pounded by waves during the monsoon season. And not to worry about the steel rods sticking up out of the sand where they tried to cover it up..."we will put up signs".  My-oh-my...you just can't make this s#!t up.

Shame on Patong Mayor. With giving permission for this illegal construction rubble dump the Patong Mayor violate many thai laws.
Plain question: How much corruption money did the Patong Mayor received for allowing that? This is of course beside her not acting against polluting Patong Bay water over the years. Just looked at her when Governor came along for photo session. Grazier by the day. New M...
