Rassada Pier is one of the most important piers in Phuket, along with Chalong and Ao Po piers, and it welcomes more than 1,000 passengers per day during the festive season.
“During the visit, we discovered that the pier has grown a lot. The place is more beautiful, cleaner and safer than in the past,” Norapat said.
“Staff have started data collection, profiling passenger traffic with cameras to take pictures of each of the passengers. This helps provide better security for people travelling through the pier.”
Soon, passengers would be issued with identifying wristbands as an added safety measure.
“I was told that the pier will soon have a separate departure and arrival zone with separate resting and food areas,” the Governor said.
“The Marine Office has also been supported by Royal Thai Navy Area 3 with two helicopters and another helicopter from a private hospital which will be very helpful for emergency cases.”
