Abstract : The detailed engineering design of the 252.3-km first phase of high-speed China-Thailand Railway has been completed recently, which laid a solid foundation for the coming all-round construction on the railway, the Chinese enterprise in charge of the design work told Xinhua on Tuesday.

BANGKOK, July 23 (Xinhua) -- Chinese enterprise has completed detailed engineering design of China-Thailand Railway's 1st phase.

The detailed engineering design of the 252.3-km first phase of high-speed China-Thailand Railway has been completed recently, which laid a solid foundation for the coming all-round construction on the railway, the Chinese enterprise in charge of the design work told Xinhua on Tuesday.

China-Thailand Railway is one of the major connectivity projects between the two countries under the Belt and Road framework. The first phase of the project would link Thai capital Bangkok and the northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima.

China Railway Design Corporation (CRDC) told Xinhua that the company has worked closely with State Railway of Thailand (SRT) in deciding the route of the first high speed railway in Thailand and its technicians and specialists have been working very hard for the preparation of the detailed engineering design.

The Chinese company said they combined Thai traditional architecture style into the design of modernized high-speed rail stations, which, after several times of improvement, is highly appreciated by the Thai side.

CRDC described the completion of detailed engineering design as an important step of the project, which laid a solid foundation for the coming all-round construction on the railway.

The project started from MoU on railway cooperation signed by Chinese and Thai governments in 2014.

In December 2017, the construction of the first phase kicked off with a 3.5 kilometer section, or the first lot with the rest lots awaiting being put out to tender.
