Thailand's Cabinet yesterday approved yesterday a high-speed railway project, expected to cost 200 billion baht (S$8.39 billion), that will link three airports, a government official said.
The rail link will connect the two airports in the Bangkok area - Suvarnabhumi International and Don Muang International - with U-Tapao, built during the Vietnam War in the eastern province of Rayong.
The approval comes at a time when surging tourist arrivals have put some strain on Thai infrastructure, and the government expects 37.55 million foreign visitors this year after a record 35.38 million last year.
