There is good news with regards to the high speed train that is to be constructed as a link between airports in Thailand. This development has long been anticipated by wedding hotel in Rayong as the railway is considered to benefit the businesses around the province. According to reports, the railway has a budget worth 224.54 billion baht and will connect various airports such as Don Mueang, U-tapao and Suvarnabhumi.
This is in line with the government’s scheme known as the Eastern Economic Corridor or EEC. SomkidJatusripitak, the deputy prime minister of Thailand, said that those private sectors with interest on the project will be given the chance to purchase the terms of reference one week after the announcement was made. The announcement is to be decided by the State Railway of Thailand, EEC Office and Ministry of Transport.
Companies participating in the auction are required to send in their bids in the following weeks because they plan to announce the winning bid in July of this year. The railway project also includes the expansion of the Airport Rail Link in Bangkok which connects the Suvarnabhumi airport and the Sauth Prakan province going to the airport of Don Mueang which is in the north of Bangkok. The end of the link is Rayong province’s U-tapao airport.
The whole link will span 220 kilometers and the train is expected to have a speed that can go as high as 250 kilometer per hour. There will be nine stations within the route and they aim to complete it after five years for the benefit of the public.
Uttama Savanayana, the ministry of the industry, said that the next bidding will be intended for the Laem Chabang port which is the third part of the project and will include U-tapao airport’s extension. National Economic and Social Development Board’s deputy secretary general, Wichayayuth Boonchit, said that the EEC will play a huge role in improving the number of private sectors investing this 2018.
The EEC is already making waves and businesses such as wedding hotel in Rayong are looking forward for the next decade as the projects will surely have positive impact on their current status.
