I really doubt that! The need to "rebuild" the slope. Looking by the speed they doing that on Patak Road to Kata, and there is it not half as damaged as in Kathu, 7 weeks would surprise me! Or it is clearly showing that no one intended to do that quickly, there.

This road has a history of collapse and slide away. It is built into a soil that is soft and clay like and requires a proper excavation and use of soil strengtheners and land reinforcement. So, yes, a rebuild is needed.  The land is loose because of deforestation. Yes, it looks green and covered with  trees, but the root structure is surface based and a heavy rain usually results in land slip. When I lived in Patong, we had 2 in 5 years . Also, it needs load restriction.

The terrain around quite a lot of Phuket seems to mainly heavy clays, which is always going to be prone to landslides without careful land management - not always a priority somewhere where a well padded brown envelope can get you permission to build just about anything just about anywhere.

Over the years I have seen the makeshift additions to his road as Traffic increased, given the saturated state of the hillside it will be months before any real stabilisation can occur this time if at all. Perhaps its time to build that tunnel that keeps being proposed.
