The Nakhon Ratchasima chamber of commerce has wanted the dual-track train project which goes through the provincial townseat to be elevated like the one in Khon Kaen province instead of the rail track on the ground and surrounded by barriers on both sides.
A petition demanding the State Railway of Thailand and the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning to reconsider the design of the project specifically for the section which passes through the Nakhon Ratchasima townseat was addressed to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha. It was handed over to Lt-Gen Vichai Saejorhor, commander of the Second Army Region, by the chamber president Mr Chatchavan Wongjorn and executives of the chamber on Tuesday.
Mr Vichai pointed out that the barriers which are to be built along both sides of the rail track which goes through the townseat would cut the town into two sections, causing inconvenience for the residents to travel from one side of the barrier to the other side.
The petition will be sent to the prime minister for consideration.
