PHUKET: -- Officials have yet to decide what action to take to prevent further coastal erosion after recent heavy weather saw a large tract of sand eaten away by strong waves along Bang Niang Beach near Khao Lak, north of Phuket.


Concrete barriers on either side of the eroded area protected beachfront businesses from the onslaught of strong waves, but a large stretch of sand in front of the Bang Niang Beachfront Restaurant suffered heavy erosion in the past week, confirmed Khuk Khak Mayor Sawat Tankang.


The area affected already had wood piles hammered into the sand and sandbags and rubble placed to dampen the beach erosion, Mayor Sawat explained to The Phuket News today (May 31).
