BANGKOK – 19 Aug 2013, (NNT) – Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt is confident that the construction of the Bangkok – Ubon Ratchathani dual-track railway will be finished within 7 years, after which the people’s quality of life will be improved.

The comment came after Mr. Chadchart boarded a 3rd class diesel train in Bangkok bound for Surin province in a fact-finding mission about its service. The information will be used to support his decision whether to raise the fare on the 3rd class train as proposed.

He revealed that although the trip took longer time, it was memorable and comfortable.

He also took the opportunity to inform that the construction of dual-track railway will be implemented on five routes nationwide. The route between Bangkok and Ubon Ratchathani Province will be in the 2nd phase of the project, which should be completed within 7 years.
