PHUKET:-- Rawai Municipality workers have sealed off a section of the sidewalk along the Rawai beachfront beside where restaurants have set up their own tables and chairs after three people were injured when a gaping hole opened where a section of the sidewalk collapsed.

 

The three people were injured when the concrete beneath them collapsed yesterday morning.

 

The three were taken to hospital by ambulance, Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos confirmed, without giving any details of the ages or nationalities of the people injured.

Accidents and structural failure happens around the world. Here, safety inspections, load limits and monitoring is solely lacking.

probably no  obvious  cement  no  foundation or minimal sand  not  compacted , not  vibrated and done by untrained experts. Thats what  happens with  corruption

same same all over Thailand, everything is done as cheaply as possible so the contractor doing it(and the govt people that called for the quotes) can pocket bigger profits, this can be seen everywhere. They only finished a new section of road and put down new drains near us a few months ago and everytime it rain the road goes under water because the drains dont work, this morning around 100 metres of the new road is under water and is not draining at all and there is still a 100 metres of road and drain to be finished, hasnt been worked on since november last year, Thailand survives on graft and corruption.

I resent your implication Sir! Clearly the omission of rebar in a suspended walkway was approved by the independent inspector following completion of the project by a local contractor. 😋
