A grader works to push sand from the Kalim road north of Patong yesterday

Phuket Storm Piles Sand Over Kalim Beach Road

Tuesday, May 28, 2013
PHUKET: Large amounts of sand were deposited on the Phuket beach road by weekend storms at Kalim, north of Patong, making the surface treacherous for passing motorcyclists.

Patong Municipality workers were clearing the sand yesterday. Water pouring from land nearby makes the road even less safe.

Yep. When you you fill or divert natural river courses the water doesn't just disappear.
It relocates and creates problems elsewhere.
Clearly evident where the recently formed "Kalim Waterfall" now pours directly onto the beach road.

The road was built decades ago, directly on the beach to overpass the Kalim school and the the sea rising at 1-2cm per year and it will worst in years ahead. Many beaches along the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand are disappearing at alarming rate and law should be put in place to make compulsory a 200m public land between the sea and private properties on low-land areas in order to have a buffer zone with large trees such as casuarina trees.
