A proposed 6-year, 400 billion baht (US$10.25 billion) project will expand much of Thailand’s railways to two-track systems, doubling the capacity of the following routes by 2009:

Bullet Train: The proposed Bullet Train will travel about 300 km/hr for a distance of 235 km, linking Bangkok residents to the airport and weekend recreation in Khao Yai National Park.

Makkasan (Bangkok) — Suvarnabhumi Airport — Nakorn Nayok (Satellite City Project) — Khao Yai National Park — Nakorn Ratchasima

High-Speed Train to China: Studies have already been completed for a proposal to build a high-speed railway to Yunnan Province in Southern China. The train will travel 100-250 km/ hr following the route:
