Plans to widen railway tracks are necessary to form transport links with important markets in India and China, National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) chief Prayuth Chan-ocha has said.

The new 1.435-metre wide tracks will also be built on whichever routes are necessary to open up rail connections with China, India and other regional countries, he said.
