Bang Sue Central Station (Thai: สถานีกลางบางซื่อ, RTGSSathani Klang Bang Sue, pronounced [sā.tʰǎː.nīː klāːŋ bāːŋ sɯ̂ː]) or Bang Sue Grand Station in Chatuchak, Bangkok, will be Thailand's new railway hub. It will replace the current Bangkok Railway Station at Hua Lamphong as the terminus for all long-distance rail services from Bangkok.[2] The station is under construction and is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2020.[3][4] As of May 2018 the station is 50 percent completed.[5] When built it will replace the existing Bang Sue Junction Railway Station and incorporate the Bang Sue MRT Station. The Red Line service from Bang Sue to Rangsit is expected to be operational in November 2019.[5] In September 2018, State Railway of Thailand delayed opening of the Red Line to January 2021.[6]

It will be the largest railway station in Southeast Asia and will have 26 platforms.[4] The station has 264,862 m2 floor area.[7][8] The 218 rai (35 hectares) area around the station will be developed as a business and commercial hub, in three zones. According to the SRT's plans, Bang Sue Central Station will have 600 metre–long platforms.

Layout[edit]

The Central Station will have four floors, three above, and one below ground:[5]

  1. Underground floor: The MRT Blue Line station, and the parking for 1,624 vehicles.
  2. Ground floor: Station concourse with ticketing and waiting areas. This will be the only air-conditioned area in the station.
  3. Second floor: Train platforms with 12 tracks. Eight tracks will serve long-distance diesel trains. Four tracks will serve SRT Red Line commuter trains.
  4. Third floor: High–speed railway platforms with 10 tracks. Six tracks serving the Sino-Thai high speed rail (HSR) train from Bangkok to Nong Khai, the high speed rail train from Bangkok to Hua Hin, and the Thai-Japanese HSR from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. Four tracks serving the Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link and the Highspeed Airport Rail Link; two tracks for City Line train from Don Mueang Airport to Suvarnabhumi Airport; and two more tracks for HSR standard and HSR airport express train from Don Mueang Airport to U-Tapao Airport replacing the old ARL Express Line.
