Landscaping work on Bangkok's Rattanakosin Island in preparation for His Majesty the King's coronation procession will be capped this month with a "Big Cleaning Day" on April 26.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and allies is holding the event to spruce up the route of the procession as well as sites used in the coronation ceremonies.

BMA Permanent Secretary Silpsuay Raweesangsoon, who led officials to inspect the progress of work on Tuesday afternoon, said road repairs, drain-cleaning, traffic markings, decoration with flags and flowering plants and installation of the "Soom Chalermphrakiat" commemorative arches was almost 100 per cent complete along the Liab Phranakhon royal procession's seven-kilometre route. 

Silpsuay added that after a little fine-tuning, the improvement works would be finished by the end of April – days ahead of the May 4 to 6 coronation ceremonies.
