Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has shelved a proposal for the construction of a cable car for Phu Kradueng mountain resort in the northeastern province of Loei.

Government spokesman Lt-Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd said Tuesday that the cabinet did not consider the cable car project because the prime minister felt that it was proposed by just a group of people without feedbacks from other stakeholders and also without any study report to back up it up.

For the project to be considered by the cabinet, he said it must go through screening process with all stakeholders sharing their inputs, such as the Loei chamber of commerce and the provincial industrial office.

He said that the prime minister was non-committal about whether the project would ever be considered by the cabinet.
