Long-haul train operations have commenced at the Krung Thep Aphiwat Central Terminal in Bangkok, making it the largest rail station in Southeast Asia. The new terminal will serve nearly all of Thailand’s long-distance domestic and international rail services. Additionally, the station will also service future high-speed rail (HSR) services.
The new terminal is estimated to receive an average peak hour footfall of 600,000 passengers daily. The USD1 billion terminal project features 24 platforms, both above and underground, as well as an elevated walkway connecting to the Mo Chit Bus Terminal.
