Hua Hin is in two of the five projects scheduled to upgrade railway tracks from single to double lines, but all have now been abruptly halted.
The so-called "scrutiny superboard", overseeing the multi-billion-baht state procurement projects, has decided to scrap the terms of reference (ToR) for five controversial double-track railway projects as part of its move to eliminate alleged irregularities.
New ToR as well as new bidding procedures will be drafted.
The decision must be agreed upon by the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) board before it can be forwarded to the cabinet for a final say. The drafting of the new ToR would then begin.
