The demolition is expected to take 15 days, Phuket Vice Governor Amnuay Pinsuwan said yesterday.

The northbound lanes of the bypass road past the site remain closed for safety. The lanes can be reopened immediately after the demolition has been completed, he said.

If it is deemed safe, the northbound lanes may be opened while the demolition work is being carried out, he added.

The demolition is being done “free of charge’, Vice Governor Amnuay said, presumed to mean that the government is not paying for the work to be done.

The contractor hired has assured that no debris from the demolition will fall onto the road, he added.

The northbound lanes past the site following two landslides in front of the incomplete buildings, one on Oct 19 and another on Oct 20.

The owner of the buildings had agreed to have the buildings demolished and filed a formal request to carry out the work with Ratsada Municipality on Wednesday, Vice Governor Amnuay said.

The aim was “to prevent potential dangers in the future”, he said.

No debris will fall on to the road is a bold statement to make. Can't wait to see how true that turns out to be.

What was the 30 years 'thinking' of the owner of that 30 years abondoned incomplete hotel construction above the Bypass? Why Phuket Government allow such all over Phuket? It makes Phuket ugly.
