Hua Hin’s High Speed train, New Land Mark Approved
A high-speed train model is now shown within an exhibition by the State Railway of Thailand. The railway board has approved two high-speed trains from Bangkok to Hua Hin and Bangkok to Rayong. Building is anticipated to start next year (2017).
SRT chairman Sarawut Benjakul said the SRT board approved the Bangkok-Hua Hin link worth 94.6 billion baht and the eastern Bangkok-Rayong line estimated at 152 billion baht. The jobs would be proposed to the public-private partnership policy (PPP) committee chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Somkid and the cabinet in June 2016.
Construction could start next year and command should be completed within this year, Mr Sarawut said. “The PPP committee considers both high-speed train projects as fast track ones, and the SRT analyzed many investment options.
The most viable alternative was the PPP net cost approach when the SRT would make its investment and the building would be paid for by the private sector, collect fares and share proceeds with the state, the SRT chairman said.
The preferred investment option reduce its fiscal burden as most of the cost would rest with the private sector and would minimise threats to the authorities. Thus the building periods could be shortened and the contractors will design and construct the systems simultaneously, Mr Sarawut said. Contractors would receive 25-year concessions to operate the trains, he said. Officials earlier estimated the construction would take more than 3 years to complete.
