The government's subcommittee tasked with examining medium and long-term economic measures has reportedly suggested expediting mega-projects to the Centre for Economic Situation Administration.


The total value of the projects is estimated at around Bt1.2 trillion. Investment in these projects should be accerelated, the panel has recommended.


Among them are the Bang Sue-Rangsit and Bang Sue-Taling Chan Red Line mass-transit system worth Bt1.07 billion. The project is slated to be trialled on July 1, 2021.


Another project is the Phase-1 Thailand-China high-speed train project. All its civil work contracts are expected to be signed next year and construction is expected to be finished in 2025.


Another one is the Kae Rai-Lam Sali Brown Line mass-transit system costing Bt48.5 billion. Construction will begin in 2024 with operations commencing in 2027.


They also include the Phase-1 Phuket mass-transit system worth Bt35.2 billion, the Red Line mass-transit system in Chiang Mai worth Bt27.3 billion, and Phase 3 of the Laem Chabang deep seaport development worth Bt114 billion.

So is the goal to totally bankrupt Thailand before you get run out of office and flee to another country ?? how about putting a little money toward feeding those who can no longer feed themselves

Yes of course the panel has recommended the project be accelerated, BIGGER kick backs for them, and others involved. Stuff the fact the country cannot afford it, more money to be made by the hand

Excellent news from the government and Khun Prayut Chan O Cha. Job creation, literally thousands of jobs will happen because of this spending. That's exactly what Thailand needs to get it kickstarted
