Phuket residents welcome the new ‘Khao Daeng Glass Bridge’ to be built in Rawai

A community meeting in Rawai on Tuesday agreed to get behind the latest tourist attraction, the Khao Daeng Glass Bridge, a new viewpoint and tourism focus for the quieter south of the island.

President of Phuket Provincial Administration Organisation, Rewat Areerob, presented details about the new attraction and said it was good to have the Rawai community backing the project.

“It will be beneficial to local people and that now the project is under study and design process. The meeting was held at Sunsuri Hotel in Rawai and was attended by Rewat who presented the design of the bridge to attending members of the Rawai community.

The island’s provincial government is backing the construction of the new landmark for Phuket to attract travellers, both Thai and international.

Rewat noted that there are still many Thais that haven’t visited Phuket and this type of landmark will be a popular attraction for domestic travellers.

There are currently two major viewpoint-style attractions scheduled for Phuket, including the glass Bridge, Khao Deang, in Rawai, and the proposed glass terrace, on Surin Beach.

The PPAO has already hired a consultant company to study and design the projects while also filing a proposal to use the space with the government and Forestry Department.

“This process will finish before August and the design should be completed before the end of this year, according to the contract.”

Rewat mentioned that the meeting was a public hearing for local people in Rawai to hear their opinions to adjust the proposal for the bridge project, public amenities, parking, etc.

The estimated budget is 200 million baht.
