Cutting trees near Lomsak

When riding back home on route 12 from Lomsak I was passing my favourite road because of all the beautiful huge trees along the road.

But this morning I was a bit sad .... they are cutting down many trees. Big ones!

Now they are not cutting down all trees. It looks like only on 1 side and again not all trees. Just some trees here, some trees there. Maybe they are cutting only the sick or old trees? Or is this preparation for making this road 4 lanes?

Update : On the web-site "Big Trees" I did read that indeed it is the beginning of making the road 4 lanes. Could they not just build the road on the other side of  the trees? So that the trees would stand between the 2 roads with each 2 lanes. Like they did between Chumpae and Nam Nao.
