Environmental group opposes erosion barrier on Phuket’s Surin Beach

Environmental academics have voiced opposition to a project, by a tambon administration organization in Phuket province, to build a beach erosion barrier on the famous Surin Beach, claiming that the project will increase, not decrease sand erosion.

 

The mayor of Choeng Thaley Tambon Administration Organization has invited tambon and village heads, community leaders and business operators to a public hearing at the TAO office on Monday, to share their views on the 19 million baht project to build a staircase barrier.

 

In an open letter, addressed to Phuket’s governor, the academics, led by Sasin Chalermlarb, chairman of the Sueb Nakhasasthien Foundation, expressed serious concern that the barrier might exacerbate the erosion.

It seems to be a ploy of that mayor to put in sea walls at local beaches to delineate the end of the beach itself, so commercial activities can be built (sold off) right to the wall.

 

Works at Paradise.

Just to confuse readers of this article, the photograph shows Karon Beach, where sand has been deposited on the beach in the last couple of years, doubling the width of sand.

Only been 10 years since my last visit to Phuket, stayed at multiple hotels.

This time the concrete development and loss of jungle is even more incredible.

 

This is what the enviro groups should be doing. opposing any more changes to anything on Phuket, or perhaps give the whole place a burning followed by recovery of jungle.

Erosion is a problem at Surin Beach, which needs to be solved. No mention of the rubbish and general delapated nature of the car park etc etc from the environment activists....

Those who study such thing (hint, not Thailand) have concluded that seawalls deplete sand , not save it and ruin beaches. So much overwhelming evidence of this.

I’m speaking to the science / varying results when building sea walls, not the objections

So that means you agree with the objections.
