At least there should not be a problem running into pickup trucks at illegal railway crossings if the line is elevated.

Another perfect TVF thread.  In other threads about high speed rail plans (250km/h) people moan that that's stupid for Thailand, no need, brown envelopes, waste of money, Thailand should just concentr

Not sure I would trust being whisked at 160 mile an hour ANYWHERE in Thailand.   Whatever next a Nuclear Power Plant ???

160 kmph, most cars can manage that on a good motorway 🙂

The prices will soar ! And i would not trust anyone driving a high speed train here. I will wait a few years and count how many train wreaks first.

Agreed . These people are not ready for this .

And how many Thais will be able to afford this? Second many foreigners will just fly cheaper and faster. This will be the biggest boondoggle in Thailand's history.

Next airport after Hua Hin (Air Asia is the only current user) is Surat Thani IIRC, then Krabi and further south- handy for people in between.

 

Strangely this isn't just about external tourism. Places like PKK and other towns down the isthmus will benefit.
