The Ministry of Transport has said the dual track railway linking Hua Hin district and Chumphon province will be completed in 2 years. According to Transport Permanent Secretary, Soitip Traisut, the planned construction of the railway has already been approved by EIA, which indicates that it will have little impact on the environment.

However, the Ministry will have to seek approvals from the Office of National Environment Board and the Cabinet before the auction of construction contract can take place. The construction is expected to begin as early as June if the contractor can be named in March. Although details of the 90-kilometer long dual-track railway between Hua Hin district and the city area of Prajuab Khiri Khan are still being collected, the construction will be completed no later than 2017, Mrs. Soitip said.
