Work continues on rebuilding Kamala

KAMALA: More than eight months after Kamala was hit by the December 26 tsunami, Kamala Tambon Administration Organization (OrBorTor) is continuing to clean up the beachfront village.

Jirachai Suebsod, Chief of OrBorTor Kamala’s Public Works department, told the Gazette that the Department of Local Administration has approved 42 million baht for Kamala OrBorTor to complete two main projects.

“We are widening the road along the beachfront and we will landscape the sidewalks on both sides so people can sit on public benches and enjoy the view of the sea,” said K. Jirachai.

“We started at the beginning of this month, and we expect to complete it by the end of February, or perhaps even earlier,” he added.

K. Jirachai said that the other project was the building of a sea wall, which was started three months ago, to protect against erosion and to beautify the beachfront with landscaping, trees and flowers.

The wall runs along the beachfront side of the Muslim cemetery, near Kamala Police Station.

“The wall that was there was damaged by the tsunami. That is why we are rebuilding it, and we will make the area look more natural.

“We plan to finish this December,” K. Jirachai said.
