Infrastructure plans to turn Thailand into AEC logistics hub
Somluck Srimalee
The Nation August 29, 2014 1:00 am



The eight-year plan to develop the country's transportation infrastructure at a cost of Bt2.4 trillion will turn Thailand into a key logistics hub in the Asean Economic Community (AEC) by the time the projects are completed in 2022, said Roengsak Tongsom, director of the Rail Project Development Office.

The goal of the strategy to develop the logistics system and integrate all transportation platforms - rail, air, road and water - stretches beyond the Kingdom's borders, as some of the projects form part of a plan to link the country's transportation system with those of neighbouring countries, he said.

The first priority is to develop 10 rail routes in Bangkok and its suburbs, worth Bt700 billion in total, by 2019.

These routes are: 42.8 kilometres of the rapid mass-transit system's Red Line from Thammasat University to Hua Lamphong; the 54-km Pink Line from Salaya to Hua Mark; the 50.3-km Airport Rail Link extension; 60km of the Dark Green Line from Lam Luk Ka to Bang Pu; 14.5km of the Green Line from the National Stadium to Bang Wa; the 47-km Bang Sue-Tha Phra-Bangkae route; 42.8km of the Purple Line from Bang Yai to Rat Burana; the 32.5-km Orange line, from Charan Sanitwong-Rajdumene-Thailand Cultural Centre-Min Buri; the 36-km Khae Rai-Min Buri line; and 30.4km of Yellow Line from Lat Phrao to Samrong.

"These lines will form part of plans to support the inner-city transportation system and city expansion from the heart of Bangkok into the suburbs. They will reduce crowding in the central business districts," said Roengsak.

The next stage of the infrastructure investment plan is to develop the country's wider transportation system and link Thailand and neighbouring countries by rail - via a double-track system, in particular.

The priorities in this respect are construction of a Bt392.57-billion Nong Khai-Nakhon Ratchasima-Saraburi-Laem Chabang-Map Ta Phut railway, and a Bt348.89-billion Chiang Khong-Den Chai-Baan Pahchi line - both using a double-track system.

Investment in these crucial lines will commence in fiscal year 2015, which runs from this coming October, with completion targeted for 2021.

The double-track routes will drive the goal of Thailand becoming a key strategic and logistics gateway to the AEC, which is set to come into effect next year, said the official.

The Nong Khai-Nakhon Ratchasima-Saraburi-Laem Chabang-Map Ta Phut route will support the logistics system from Map Ta Phut to the Lao capital, Vientiane, while the Chiang Khong-Den Chai-Baan Pahchi route will support the logistics system to Myanmar and southern China.

The infrastructure investment planned for greater Bangkok will transform the capital from an overcrowded city by expanding residential areas beyond the central business districts and into the suburbs, said Property Perfect CEO Chainid Adhyanasakul.

Once the infrastructure projects get under way next year, the listed residential developer will expand its investment in Bangkok's peripheral provinces, in line with the mass-transit route expansion, he said.

Another listed developer, Sansiri, is also planning provincial expansion due to the state's revived infrastructure spending plans.

"We suspended our investment in the provinces when the infrastructure investment programme worth Bt2 trillion was suspended. If the new government expands the investment to develop the country's infrastructure in the provinces, we will be ready to expand our investment into new provinces [for Sansiri] that are located close to new infrastructure routes," said the company's president, Srettha Thavisin.

BTS Dark Green line extension - Bang Wa - Talling Chan (7 km)

Either BMA building the line and hiring private sectors [Read: BTSC] to run the service or all private sector.

There are 2 choices of the line
1. Following Rajpruek road, passing Phrannok - Phutthamonthon Sai 4 road all the way to Boromraj Chonnanee elevated way all the way to Taling Chan - with further plan to connect with purple line at Bang Yai.
2. Following Rajpruek road, passing Phrannok - Phutthamonthon Sai 4 road all the way to Boromraj Chonnanee elevated way before tuning left to pick the passengers at Southern Bus terminal at Taling Chan and then turning right to head to Taling Chan.

Need to buy some land for depot and maintenance center - BMA is going to use the middle island under jurisdiction of Rural Highway dept for this purpose - Need to ask for the transfer to BMA for the convenience or so - as the part of boosting traffic of those who live in Thonburi side of BKK

BTS Light Green line extension - Bearing - Samut Prakan (12.6 km)

The progress is now 35.03% done.

However, those in Pak Nam and Bang Poo areas asking for the price control of condo leasing as this extension will drive the price of leasing of apartment and condo upward to the point that it has become unaffordable for those workers.

Are all of these lines metro or BTS?

Will there be the unique system of urban rail mass transit upon completion or they'll carry on working as two different systems?

The BTS, MRT and SRT stands for the company that operates the lines.

BTS skytrain lines are all elevated and refer to:
Green line and Dark green line

MRT refer to the metro (both underground & elevated):
Blue line, Purple line and Orange line.

However MRT will also operate two monorail lines:
Pink line and Yellow line.

SRT operates the commuter rail (elevated, at grade and underground in some stations):
Light red line, Dark red line and Airport Rail Link.

The process of integrated ticket system begins this month, September 2014 and will take 30 months to be done, while BTSC has promised that the integrated system will be installed in both mass transit system as well as expressway systems within 15 months and the testrun will begin in the 18th months.

Bangkok Pink Line awaits government review
Written by Kevin Smith

THAILAND's Office of Transport and Transport Policy and Planning (OTP) says that the construction plan for the 34.5km Pink Line monorail in Bangkok is currently awaiting approval from the government ahead of a bidding process which it hopes will commence by the end of the year.

OTP director general Mr Peraphon Thawornsupacharoen says that if the government gives the Baht 58.3bn ($US ) project the green light and private firms bid as expected, construction, which will be managed by Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA), will take three years and the line could open in early 2019.

The Pink Line is described as a "feeder line" by MRTA, one of four for Bangkok, and the OTP says the monorail will be capable of transporting 80,000-200,000 passengers per day. It is expected to be implemented as a PPP operating concession.

First Sustina export order
23 Sep 2014



JAPAN: East Japan Railway train manufacturing subsidiary J-Trec has won an order to supply its Sustina design for the Purple Line in Bangkok. A fleet of 21 three-car sets will be delivered to Thailand in 2016 from the company’s factory in Yokohama, and JR East will set up a local business to provide a ‘comprehensive maintenance programme’ covering rolling stock and infrastructure for 10 years.

The trains have been developed following development and testing of a prototype in 2012-13. The Sustina design features laser-welded lightweight stainless steel car bodies that include an interior roll-bar at ceiling height to provide strength within the car body should a collision occur from the side.

J-Trec is also working on Sustina rolling stock designs for use by JR East.
