Of course, there are those who were quite disappointed with the announcement, especially those who already made the booking to travel to China just to see the glass bridge. The public was reassured that the government is making all the necessary upgrades to ensure the safety of the glass bridge. There are also plans to improve the surroundings of the glass bridge because there had been comments that there was “trash everywhere.” Aside from that, the management and officials aim to provide more efficient customer service to handle bookings and other concerns effectively.

The representative for Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon denied any problem with the structure and insisted that there had been no accidents.
