BANGKOK (NNT) - The government will sign three contracts relating to the Thai-Sino high-speed train project between Bangkok and Nakhon Ratchasima today.


Deputy government spokeswoman Traisuree Taisaranakul said the contracts include the 4-3 contract on civil engineering works along the Nava Nakhon-Ban Pho section, the 4-4 contract to build a maintenance depot at Chiang Rak Noi, as well as the 4-6 contract on rail engineering works along the Phra Kaew-Saraburi section.


She added that the 253-kilometre project between Bangkok and Nakhon Ratchasima, which is estimated to cost 179.41 billion baht to construct, is progressing.


Once completed, the route will have six stations -- namely Bangkok (Bang Sue), Don Muang, Ayutthaya, Saraburi, Pak Chong and Nakhon Ratchasima.

Speed away, and will it bring in commerce with each run?  Good luck with creating jobs for foreign companies and not your own low income folks.

A signed contract here is worthless, just ask Hopewell.

20 years on and they are still trying to collect what is owed to them by a reneging government here in Thailand who would rather stuff their own pockets.  OK, rants over.

Do you need a high speed train for a distance of 150 miles, especially as it has 5 stops. A decent normal speed train would be more than sufficient. But i guess not enough kick backs.
