Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos said, “Nai Harn Lake has not been renovated for over 10 years so we believe it is time to renovate the area to make it more attractive for residents and tourists.

“The renovation project will see bicycle, walking and running lanes installed which will be separated from traffic lanes,” he said.

“We are considering using a budget from the central government or the municipality for this project but we will decide upon this once the designs have been drawn up.

“It is highly possible that we will use the municipality budget because if we ask the central government for a budget it will take too long and we do not know whether they will provide the budget or not.

“However, either way, if the project is accepted then contraction will be began within this year,” Mayor Aroon added.

Whenever I hear of "renovations", all I can say is "Oh no...what now".  Can someone please shine some light on a "renovation" project that has actually done something to improve an area?  I think the primary idea is for improvement of a few peoples' financial status.  And I really don't think Thais are ready for bike/pedestrian lanes, as there is no enforcement mechanism to ensure that they will not be used by motorbkes and anything else that will fit on them.  You just can't import a concept from developed metropolitan areas like Vancouver Canada or Copenhagen and expect it to work in Thailand.

Its kind of a strange approach to make the surroundings of a waste water purification plant attractive for tourist in Phuket......

Right, the make up photos of this renovation plan are actually not expressing anything.
Great way to keep things confused, lot of room for misunderstandings.
Guess it is all about money during these times that past beach vendor brown envelopes are not coming in anymore.

Something like: "Hey we have to survive, we have our expenses".
How about: making Rawai water front a real attractive boulevard?
Perhaps some Rawai officials make a trip to Singapore first to see/get inspiration?

Last time they "renovated" the area, they cut down all the shade trees
