The Krung Thep Aphiwat Train Terminal, previously known as Bang Sue Grand Station, will be officially opened on January 19th, with the maiden Bangkok-Ayutthaya air-conditioned diesel train for tourists slated as the inaugural service.

 

According to the State Railway of Thailand (SRT), the first train will leave the station for Ayutthaya at 1.19pm, to be followed by another maiden service, the Bangkok-Sungai Kolok express train.

 

All 52 long-haul trains serving the southern, northern and north-eastern routes will be relocated from Hua Lamphong, Bangkok’s old main terminal, to Krung Thep Aphiwat Train Terminal.

BANGKOK, Jan 4 (TNA) – The State Railway of Thailand confirmed transparency on its 33-million-baht project to change the nameplate of the Bang Sue Grand Station.

 

In response to online reports on the controversial project to hire a company to replace the “Bang Sue Grand Station” nameplate with a “Krung Thep Abhiwat Central Terminal” nameplate, the SRT said the implementation of the project complied strictly with the procurement regulations of the government including regulations concerning median prices, procurement procedures, project merits, cost effectiveness and engineering and safety aspects.

 

The project was also designed to match the regional transport hub status of the grand station, the state enterprise said.

Decision and new name given by the head of the state (not the general, the other one). 

Therefore no one dare to comment and obviously any sum of money is good for this unnecessary name change
