This project aims to study the project for the High Speed Rail Development Master Plan in Thailand and propose a project management plan for this project. From our preliminary surveys of the project, we found that Bangkok-Chiang Mai route is one of the highest potential projects for building high speed planned routes under Thailand’s infrastructure investment program. Thai government expects that the modern system rail would help to improve economy and tourism industry in Thailand. This paper intends to develop the project management plan to support Thai government plan, which is Bangkok-Chiang Mai High Speed Rail project, and provide suggestions on what should be done further in the planning as well. The intense of possibility of high speed rail project can be analyzed from construction plan, investment cost, feasibility of construction, ridership potential, investment return and uncertainty factors. This project paper will also introduce some project management tools and methods that would help a better management for the construction project.


This project is only available to students, faculty, and staff of Portland State University.
