Another landslide on a major road in Phuket has blocked a whole lane in Rassada, Mueang Phuket, which has caused traffic chaos.

A part of the Bypass Road which is one of several major roads in Phuket continues to be closed due to a fear of more landslides under an abandoned building on the northbound lane.

A meeting was held yesterday afternoon (October 22nd) and was led by the Phuket Vice Governor Amnuay Pitsuwan and relevant authorities.

Mr. Amnuay told the Phuket Express, “This abandoned building was built 30 years ago but it was never fully completed. The land started to slide near the building since this week and seem to have continued.”

“A representative of a company who owns this the area is pleased with the demolishment.” Amnuay added, without stating the name of the company.

“On October 25th the province will request the Rassada Municipality for the demolishment and the work will start immediately. It will take about two weeks for the demolishment to be completed. A private sector company will do the work. Meanwhile, parts of the road nearby are still closed to through traffic.” Amnuay concluded.
