Here's a photo of the plan for the Soi 56 area. It seems to show the elevated track merging to ground level, so maybe elevated section is for central HH only. Also shows a U bridge so looks like level crossing at Soi 56 will be gone.

That would certainly improve the safety factor at Soi 56 and help keep the traffic moving.

interesting that this thread and the Riviera thread are active at the same time.

I’ve noticed over the past few months that construction of the groundwork for the new rail line has commenced in some areas - I asssume they are doing the “easy” sections first where there are no buildings to demolish or people to evict. I took this photo this morning showing the construction adjacent to the existing single line track in the area close to the Energy Project.

I hope that it gets finished on time so that there is an alternative option for travel to/from Bangkok

Yes, a lot of similar scenes in Hua Hin as well.

The photo from Dannie Boy shows work progressing with the usual machines required for road-building...
..But opposite the back entrance to MV they've now got tracked cranes, & some sort of on-site machinery..?
