Patong City Municipality get strict on property project approvals that might cause land slides

Pian Keesin, the Mayor of Patong City Municipality, said that there were many land slide cases occurring in Patong area after heavy rain, especially in the Soi Nanai area and near the road connecting Patong and Kathu areas. The land slides always caused traffic jams and accidents on that road.

Recently, some workers died in a landslide along Soi Nanai. Consequently, the board of Patong City Municipality agreed to get strict on the approval of property projects that might cause land slides in Patong. The municipality also assigned its related staff to keep an eye 24 hours a day on the areas that were at risk of landslides. Moreover, there was a drill to prepare for any more possible land slide cases.
