The government has yet to make a decision on the controversial Phu Kradueng cable car project, says government spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd.

Responding to criticism by environmentalists, Maj Gen Sansern said the cabinet has merely acknowledged the results of a feasibility study conducted by the Designated Areas for Sustainable Tourism Administration (Dasta) on the cable car project proposed for Phu Kradueng in Loei.

MOST STATE agencies have agreed on the proposal to build cable cars to Phu Kradueng National Park, but want the project to strictly follow relevant laws as well as conduct an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).

The decision on the Phu Kradueng cable-car project was disclosed to the Cabinet Wednesday, with the majority on the government side supporting the plan. However, the Seub Nakhasathien Foundation and other opposition groups objected, saying it will be in conflict with the management principles of the natural preserve.

The Seub Nakhasathien Foundation said Thursday it was opposed to the cable car planned to run to the mountaintop of Phu Kradueng National Park and would thoroughly study the scheme’s environmental impact assessment (EIA) report to support its disagreement.

The plan breached the park’s intention laid out over 50 years ago that it be preserved because it was blessed with the most natural diversity, with nature trails from the base to the mountaintop, foundation secretary-general Panudet Kerdmali said.
