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.

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