Strong waves washed up seawater onto a beach road north of Phuket causing traffic delays last month.

The Phuket Governor inspected the Thep Kasattri Road (No 402) north bound near the Sai Kaew Beach in Mai Khao after the high tide and strong waves washed up seawater onto the road.

A main road along a beach in Mai Khao in Phuket was temporarily closed due to high tide.

The meeting was held yesterday (August 3rd) at the Phuket Natural Resources and Environment office led by the Phuket Vice Governor Amnuay Pitsuwan.

Mr. Amnuay said, “The high tide road floodimg last month has affected the traffic and risk for beaches and road surface erosion.”

“Since 2020 most beaches shores are at a balanced level. The total distance of beach erosion is 8.26 kilometers. Of those 0.16 kilometers is severely eroded while 5.79 kilometers is medium erosion and 2.30 kilometers is mild erosion.” Mr. Amnuay explained.
