The Provincial Electricity Authority upgraded the power system on Sukhumvit Soi 54.

A PEA crew replaced 14-meter-tall electrical posts with 14.3-meter poles, and took down all the open electricity lines so they could install shielded, insulated cables between the Au Sunset Hotel and Train Hotel.

Power was out for the day, but was restored in time for nightfall.

The upgrade came after repeated brown- and blackouts in the Jomtien Beach area.
