Officers were alerted to the collapse yesterday afternoon (July 17). The collapse was attributed to the heavy rains that have doused Phuket over the past two weeks.

No lanes were closed following the collapse and no injuries were reported.

At last report repairs to the collapsed section of the retaining wall section had yet to begin.

I think it ismuch more likely the collapse is attributed to the very poor low quality build of the original retaining wall, not  heavy rainfall. Like everything else here, made poorly so it will not last very long.

Now we have 2 collapsed walls. This one and the one at Kata Hill, Patak Road (Almost 2 years now waiting for repairs).  Ok, we don't worry, it will be fixed after the Patong tunnel and the light rail projects are done. Than we install properly 2 cashing study committees first. Doing things properly.
What a paralized province. have foreign professionals to fix it.
