The Transport Ministry is confident the construction of the 3.5-kilometre section of the Thai-Chinese high-speed railway between Klang Dong – Pang Asok stations in Nakhon Ratchasima province will begin in December since the environmental impact assessment report for it has been completed, Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said.
The construction of the 3.5-km section of the railway between Klang Dong and Pang Asok stations in Nakhon Ratchasima has been delayed because the EIA report is still pending approval, Mr Arkhom said after a meeting of the committee on the management of the Thai-Chinese high-speed railway project on Wednesday (Nov 15).
The railway’s first phase will connect Bangkok to Nakhon Ratchasima, with the second phase linking Nakhon Ratchasima and Nong Khai.
Mr Arkhom said the EIA report has been sent to the Office of the Natural Resources and Environment Policy and Planning for consideration for the 7th time and a representative of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment said it is already completed.
It is believed the EIA report will be forwarded to a cabinet meeting in November and the construction will start in mid-December, he said.
