The Bang Sue Grand Station will be the largest railway interchange in South East Asia when it opens in early 2021. This extensive project promises to be the start of a hugely ambitious network of national and potentially international rail links.
Bang Sue Grand Station will be Thailand’s new railway hub. It will replace the existing Bangkok Railway Station (Hua Lamphong Station) as the terminus for all long-distance rail services from Bangkok. The station will have 26 platforms – some 596 metres long. The station will offer 274,192 square metres of usable floor space
The Thai Government is ambitiously speculating that a transport project of this massive scale and scope will help commerce and business to extend outside of Bangkok to the country’s provinces thus facilitating the interconnection of people and trade.
The Bang Sue Grand Station is potentially the beginning of an even larger connection between Thailand and its regional economic partners. An upgraded and extended network
of trains could eventually link Bangkok to Beijing as part of China’s ambitious “One Belt One Road (OBOR)” initiative that aims to connect China and Southeast Asia.
The station is located at Chatuchak, Bangkok, owned by the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) with construction nearing completion.
