Mahakan Fort found to be subsiding

via Bangkok Post, 24 August 2017: The Mahakorn Fort, which has recently been in the news because off attempts by the municipal government to evict the local community, is in the news again. This time, the fort structure itself appears to be tilting from old age.

Major repairs are planned for the ageing Mahakan Fort at the end of this year after city officials discovered during routine renovation that it is subsiding.
