Four high-speed-rail projects will be included in the government’s 2017 investment plan, while three routes of the double-tracking project will be proposed to the Cabinet Tuesday, said Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith. 

He said most of the ministry’s investments in fiscal 2017 would be continuations of projects from fiscal 2016 and those that were unable to attain their targets this fiscal year.

Next week, the ministry will report such problems to the Cabinet, he said.

The four high-speed-rail projects that are not expected to achieve their targets this fiscal year will be included in the 2017 plan. These are the Bt179-billion 252.5-kilometre Bangkok-Nakhon Ratchasima route, the Bt224-billion 382km Bangkok-Phitsanulok route, the Bt152-billion 193.5km Bangkok-Rayong route, and the Bt94.6-billion 165km Bangkok-Hua Hin route.
