High speed not the only risk with railway

Recommended Posts

What's wrong with China building high speed rail in Thailand?
The Chinese high speed rail I have travelled in was great. Fast comfortable and seemed of a high standard.
If the new high speed rail helps technological improvement, and helps develop the infrastructure, bring it on.

Maybe sit in the back carriages?

 

They seem to keep airport runways clear of somtam sellers and golfers, so they can do it.

The building is more important than the politics around it.

The funniest part of the latest announcement by the govt is that "technology transfer" will occur despite the invocation of S44 to overrule Thai law.  Technology transfer is when the Koreans let the Japanese build automobile factories and then later the Koreans build their own automobile factories.  Does anyone seriously think that Thailand is going to go into the high speed rail business itself?

Once built, who maintains it - Thais or Chinese?  If it's the former, include me out.

as a train guy ,i take every opportunity to watch them either at staions or in the yards or on the road,and i personally feel thailands trains are perfect for their user...most who ride the trains are locals with some tourists(as a novelty),i hope this wont be another (lets keep up with the jones),destroy land to build a new roadbed type deal,only then to realize (wow this does not meet our needs)..

You think Chinese engineers are going to queue up at Immigration to get work extensions and permits from Labor ?

China’s ambitious Road and Belt Initiative.

 

I think the literal meaning of this initiative is...We (China) are going to

Beat countries with our political Belt until we get our roads and rails

networks built INTO their countries......

 

Which is exactly what is happening in all countries surrounding China...

They are not going to manage anything.....The military is only clearing

the way so China can build THEIR rail project..
