Hua Hin high speed rail – Plans to have the station downtown

Thai media has reported that plans to have the Hua Hin high speed railway station out of town have been shelved.

The idea is now to put the station close to the town center for the convenience of tourists and visitors.

Station master Prasong Komuk revealed to New TV a conversation with communications’ minister Arkhom Termphitayaphaisit in which he said that plans for a station seven kilometers south of the town in Ban Nong Kae were now off.

The new station would be constructed near the site of the current one.

The idea appeared to be to move the current station 225 meters south but retain its iconic architecture that is popular with visitors.

Meanwhile the new station will be part of an elevated section.

INN reported that the minister confirmed changes to the plans for the 33 billion baht railway that will run between Nakorn Pathom and Chumpon.
