Thai-Japanese rail plans take shape

Initial construction costs for the Thai-Japanese high-speed railway's first phase from Bangkok to Phitsanulok have been estimated at 270 billion baht, says Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith.

Mr Arkhom said plans for the phase are due to be submitted to the cabinet for consideration this year.

The 380-kilometre route from Bangkok to Phitsanulok is part of a project between Thailand and Japan to construct a high-speed railway connecting the capital to Chiang Mai.
