Yes, when trees were still there , than the roots would probably did 'hold' that road section.  But Phuketians are fascinated by brainless tree/greenery cutting everywhere.  They love to make nice nature areas ugly. And if possible a lot of concrete instead. No 'nature feeling'.

Never happened when all those nasty trees were there. Dirty things, dropping leaves everywhere. Get rid of them all!

Yes, you notice many poor constructions in Thailand, that suddenly collapse a while later..

Photos show lack/absence of construction thinking. ( or  the usual to much kick off's thinking in the past). Now it needs there a steel retaining wall, filled up with concrete, than a new road deck. But first the budget flipper games.

I saw this weeks ago and thought of reporting it, but then thought that they would have teams that would have recognised this immediately. I doubt if i had reported it now that anything would have been done anyway. Just so lucky noone was killed. I'm still trying to figure out how they are cutting into the mountain beside it with no retaining walls? It looks to be a disaster about to happen.

Result of complete crap construction using "0" engineering. Just grade flat and pave, and put as much of the budget in the pockets as possible. Heads should roll over this, but nobody will be held accountable...ever.
