Adunlayadet Road

Post by BobHelm » September 13, 2017, 11:51 am

Best to avoid for the next couple of hours.
This object is blocking the end near Nong Sim, causing diversions & tail backs.
Not sure exactly what it is doing there though!!

According to the municipality website, the electric company is trimming the huge tree at that intersection. The trimming should be finished today.

Looks a bit OTT just to trim a tree :shock: Whatever happened to the guy on the bamboo ladder with the machete?

Aah, it is not just any old tree at that junction, it is a monster (rubber ??) tree that stretches into the sky.

If anything remains of it, I will photograph tomorrow for you Statts.. :D

Nice photo Bob.
Look at the electric poles completely overloaded with probably redundant junk wiring.
They look as though they are ready to fall down.

The tree is a protected type......called yang nha (ยางนา). My wife tells me they were common when she was young.......now, unfortunately, few are left. I think it takes an act of God to cut one down....even when blocking a new roadway.

" I think it takes an act of God to cut one down....even when blocking a new roadway."

Ahhh that would be the Thai version of the Londoners "Act of Boris" where anyone with enough money or contacts could go and get any preservation order overturned :roll:

Don't really need an act of god just a good reason as several were removed during the Ban Phuea road ( road #2021) widening project which is only partially completed.

...and is why like highway 2024, it will probably always be in a state of perpetual partial completion.

Tree spirits.... gotta love 'em.
