Did you hear anything about their trip to Nanjing?

Would this be the first deployment of this version of Hitachi rolling stock?

The Innovia is proven in both monorail and light rail installations around the world, in addition to their mature rail control systems. Alas, like everything this will all come down to price.

I can't comment on the private discussions on their visit to Nanjing or Chongching other than Kuhn Keree would not say which train he prefers. From the photos, it looks like they were looking at the latest Hitachi Monorail Train that will be delivered to another customer. Looks nice and sleek with sloping front for aerodynamics.

Bangkok Post | 9 Feb 2017 at 13:55

The Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA) on Thursday signed six contracts for the construction of the 79.2 bilion-baht Orange Line electric rail route, expected to open in early 2023.

Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak presided over the signing of the contracts for construction of the Orange Line, linking the Thailand Cultural Centre and Bangkok’s Min Buri district, with the winning bidders. There are six contracts worth a total of 79.2 billion baht, below the median prices by 505 million baht. The 22.57 kilometre route will have 17 stations, 10 subway and 7 elevated.

In other news, the Gold line construction contract had been awarded to Italian-Thai on January 19, 2017. The first phase of the line 1.8 km is scheduled to begin construction this year and be completed in 2018.

The rolling stock will be a driverless automated guideway transit (AGT) with rubber tyres to reduce noise. One car can accommodate 80-100 passengers, up to six cars can be connected.

BTS press release 10.02.2017: Within our Mass Transit business, on 14 December 2016, MRTA officially announced that the “BSR Joint Venture (BSR)” (a Joint Venture between BTS Group, STEC and RATCH) proposed the best offer for the monorail projects of the Pink Line (Khae Rai to Min Buri; 34.5km, 30 stations) and the Yellow Line (Lad Prao to Sam Rong; 30.4km, 23 stations). BSR is currently in negotiations with MRTA pursuant to the procedures stated in the Private Investments in State Undertakings Act B.E. 2556 (2013). The contracts are expected to be signed in April 2017 and the lines opened for service in 2020 after 39 months of construction.
As of December 2016, according to MRTA, the civil works for the Green Line – South (Bearing – Samut Prakarn; 12.8km, 9 stations) extension was 100% completed and the Green Line North (Mo Chit – Saphan Mai – Ku Kot; 18.4km, 16 stations) extension was 19% completed, ahead of the target by 2%. We expect the first station of the Green Line South (Samrong-E15) is targeted to be in operation in March – April 2017 . The Green Line South and North extension are targeted to begin full operation in late 2018 and 2020, respectively and the contract award for the combined 31.2km of these green line extensions will be prior the operation.
The government has taken firm steps to develop the country’s transportation infrastructure by expediting several rail mass transit projects (for example, Pink, Yellow & Orange Lines and Green, Blue and Purple Line extension to expand mass transit coverage. At no other time in the history of Bangkok’s mass transit system has such effort been expended. More projects under the BMA are also in the pipeline. For instance, the Grey Line (Watcharaphol – Thong lo phase I; 16.3km, 15 stations), the Light Rail Transit (LRT) - Bang Na – Suvarnabhumi Airport (18.3km, 14 stations) and the Green Line West (Bang Wa – Borommaratchachonnani; 7.0km, 6 stations) are also expected to open for bidding in the next 2 years. The award of the Pink and Yellow lines to BSR further enhances our competitiveness to win these additional lines through improved connectivity and economies of scale.

Construction of BTS Gold Line along the Chao Phraya River likely to start this April

The privately-funded BTS extension could change the face of the riverside.

BY MONRUEDEE JANSUTTIPAN | FEB 21, 2017



Despite opposition from some Klong San locals, construction of the BTS Gold Line from BTS Krung Thonburi to Taksin Hospital is expected to start this April.

Prachachat reports that Krungthep Thanakom, the state enterprise that belongs to BMA, are awaiting final approval from cabinet for their proposed construction plan for the three-station extension, as well as approval from the National Environmental Board, which is currently reviewing an environmental impact assessment (EIA).

Looking likely to become the shortest BTS extension of all, the 2.7km project along Charoen Nakorn Road will be separated into two parts with a total four stations.

The first part consisting of three stations across 1.8km—Krung Thonburi (G1, next to the current BTS Krung Thonburi), Icon Siam Station (G2, next to the megaproject of the same name) and Khlong San Station (G3, next to Taksin Hospital, the hip Jam Factory compound and Klong San Pier)—is expected to be operational as early as next year.

The second part of the project along Somdet Chao Phraya Road, comprising a fourth station at Wat Anongkharam (G4), will supposedly follow in 2023, covering another 0.9km.

According to Surapong Laoha-Unya, Director and COO of the BTS, the B2.08 billion project will be at least partially funded by private groups, including Icon Siam, the mega mixed-use property featuring malls and residences that's set to open on Charoen Nakorn Road later this year.

The project's EIA should face close scrutiny because the Gold Line's proposed elevated track contravenes regulations that prohibit developments that obscure the scenery of Rattanakosin Island. However, the BMA has called for an exemption in this case by saying the proposed elevated track is cheaper compared to the alternative of an underground track.

Krungthep Thanakom says the BTS has already expressed its intention to invest in the construction and operation of the line for 30 years. It plans to use a fully automated, driverless transit system for the operation, with two trains and three carriages carrying 80-100 people each. The Gold Line is projected to welcome 47,300 passengers a day for the first three stations, and 81,000 pasengers per day when the last station opens.

The Gold Line will cross, and potentially connect, with two other mass rapid train lines: the State Railway of Thailand's Red Line and the MRT Purple Line, which will have a station on Prachathipok Road.
