The dilapidated steps leading to Pratamnak Beach at the end of Soi 4 near the Asia Hotel are finally being repaired.
Erosion and a lack of maintenance have left the 50-meter staircase sorely in need for some time. Beach users have complained for years, but city hall only sent repairmen in on Aug. 7.
They plan to reinforce the broken steps with new concrete and add supports to any areas that pose safety hazards. However, since no vehicles can reach the area, the work may take up to two weeks.
