    Ministry chugs ahead with trains

    Published on 29/07/2013

    » Whilst the 2-trillion baht borrowing bill is still proceeding through parliament, officials in the Transport Ministry are ploughing ahead with feasibility studies and environmental impact assessments on the electric train project involving four routes. The proposed route from Bangkok to Rayong, starting at Bang Sue and stopping at Chachoengsao, Chonburi and Pattaya, is estimated to cost 101 billion baht. A consultant has been hired to conduct the planning studies. Critics of the scheme say that high-speed trains never break even in any country which has them and require heavy subsidies. The proposed Bangkok-to-Rayong route is one of the less controversial as there is a widespread feeling that the Eastern Seaboard city needs a direct and speedy link to the metropolis. Also the expanding U-tapao provincial airport would benefit enormously from a direct high-speed connection to both Pattaya and Bangkok.
