The Future Of Bangkok Rail Travel

It is forecasted that in coming 20 years the demand for rail transportation in Asia and Asia Pacific will spike.  As new train lines are propsed and upgrades to existing infrastructure are carried out, the future of the Asian rail network is exciting. Major contributors on this huge investment are Thailand (68 billion USD) and Singapore (56 billion USD) whereas Malaysia, Laos, Indonesia and Vietnam will share the rest. Bangkok is a no -brainer for a regional rail hub. Currently at Bang Sue Junction there is an enormous construction site next to the current station and is due to open in 2019.

Key Points:

  • As a rail fan and infrastructure enthusiast I’ve been keenly following the developments of Thailand’s future railway projects.
  • In addition to old lines being modernized, there are some proposed new lines that will open rail travel from Bangkok to new cities and countries.
  • To visualize these changes I have created a map of what Southeast Asia would look like if every proposed railway was built.

“The map is designed in a subway-style, which accentuates busy junctions with multiple lines. After completing the map it became obvious that Bangkok would be the railway hub of mainland Southeast Asia.”
