Phuket drain-construction delays blamed on lack of sand

PHUKET: A large chunk of Phuket’s busy bypass road where drain construction has been ongoing for several months has started to crack and there are concerns that the road could collapse should works not be completed or repairs carried out soon.

Should the section of road collapse it will further reduce the width of the already narrowed road and will surely make it even more hazardous for motorists, warned project engineer Chalermpol Wongkiattikun of the Department of Highways in Bangkok.

The delays in the construction of the drains have been blamed on a lack of sand, Mr Chalermpol said.

“I am concerned at the state of the road in front of the Index Living Mall,” Mr Chalermpol told The Phuket News.

“We have to work slowly on the drain construction because there have been delays in receiving the sand we need from Phang Nga.

“However, once the sand has been delivered work will continue.”

The Contractor responsible should be given a red card and sent packing. The job site and surrounding environs are a disgrace and a danger to the public and workers on the site.

Who's in charge ? It's a multi dollar million job site and not even a site office or any visible Supervision from the responsible local government authorities.

Yes of course Phuket being an island and having beaches full of sand I can see why you\'d have problems getting sand! haha, That must be the lamest excuse ever!

That's the best excuse ever. We can all appreciate how difficult it must be to get sand here.
