PHUKET:-- Officials from the Phuket Highways Office say that the reason for chopping down the more than 20 towering pine trees near the Premium Outlet on the Bypass Road this morning was to provide a 'better view' of that road to drivers on both sides. 

“Due to 'heavy rain' these days, it was necessary for us to cut down the trees so that they do not block the drivers’ view. Another reason was to get rid of termites,” Patiwetwottisak Sookhii, director of the Phuket Highways Office, told the Phuket Gazette. 

“People need not worry about traffic congestion while the maintenance work is being carried out,” he added.

When it doubt cut down a tree.  The trees were there for a long time.  Sure there could have been a better solution.
