The view from the illegal road and traverse carved on a Phuket hill

Phuket Hillside Trailblazer Alarms Officials: Investigation Draws Blank So Far

Friday, August 1, 2014
PHUKET: The Royal Thai Navy, Chalong Council and Vice Governor Somkiet Sangkaosutthirak took to Phuket's hills yesterday in pursuit of illegal activity above the 80-metre height level.

Authorities in four-wheel drive vehicles followed a rough trail into the Nakkerd Hills where they found a trail had been blazed for three kilometres traversing a hill, taking in vistas across Chalong Bay and Rawai in southern Phuket.

While the officials encountered no individuals or heavy moving equipment, their suspicion is that the people who have carved out the trail up the hill and around it probably aim to clear a large tract of land for a hillside resort.

Residents who noted the unusual traffic up and down the hill informed Damrungtam complaints office officials about their suspicions.

Authorities are hoping the next lead will take them to the people involved.
