SRT Airport Rail link extension - (21.8 km) & SRT Red line Missing Link extension - (25.5 km)

Construction for ARL extension will begin in September and a future extension to link 3 airports are now under study.
SRT Red line Missing Link extension will also begin at the same time in September.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Military government set to link 3 airports
Work on 'super link' is tipped to begin in September
25 Jan 2016 at 06:29 | WRITER: AMORNRAT MAHITTHIROOK



Almost six years ago, the Airport Rail Link introduced a fast route to Suvarnabhumi airport, offering speedy trains taking travellers right into its terminal.

This year the government is set to offer more convenience to air travellers by starting work on a new rail system under an ambitious plan to link the Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang and U-Tapao airports together.

Previous governments had similar ideas to upgrade the Airport Rail Link to a "super-link" that includes Don Mueang airpot in Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi airport in Samut Prakan and the navy-owned U-Tapao airport in Rayong, but the plan failed to make progress until the current administration.

The Prayut Chan-o-cha government ordered a study on a new rail track from Suvarnabhumi airport to U-Tapao airport in the east of the country. Its findings are expected in March this year.

The cabinet will be asked next month to approve construction of the first section of the 31.1-billion baht Phaya Thai-Don Mueang rail route, said Deputy Transport Minister Ormsin Chivapruck.

The line is divided into two sections -- Phaya Thai-Bang Sue, and Bang Sue-Don Mueang airport. A nod from the cabinet will kick-start construction of the 7.8km Phaya Thai-Bang Sue section, a mix of a 4.3km elevated track and a 3.5km underground route, he said.

This section must be constructed first because the government is also pushing ahead with the Light Red Line project connecting Bang Sue and Hua Mak as well as Bang Sue and Hua Lamphong.

"Their construction must happen together," Mr Ormsin said, referring to the Airport Rail Link and the Light Red Line projects.


The Phaya Thai-Bang Sue section will most likely materialise first as the Transport Ministry has scheduled action plans. It set September this year as the start of construction and expects this Airport Rail Link extension will open for commercial service in 2020, according to Mr Ormsin.

Phaya Thai serves as the first station of the original Airport Rail Link, the 28.6km line that links Phaya Thai to Suvarnabhumi airport.

The station is considered a good junction for travellers as it connects with the BTS skytrain which carries commuters from inner Bangkok and Thon Buri, located on the west side of the Chao Phraya River.

Under the plan, travellers at this station will be offered one more route taking them to Don Mueang airport where most budget airlines are based. However, this will happen only if the Transport Ministry solves the problem regarding a limited construction area in the 14km Bang Sue-Don Mueang section.

There are three other railway projects which, like the Airport Rail Link, put the Bang Sue station on their construction maps. The three are a section of the Red Line project, connecting Bang Sue and Rangsit, and the Thai-Chinese and Thai-Japanese railway development projects.

The State Railway of Thailand (SRT), which oversees the Airport Rail Link, has limited space for rail route construction from Bang Sue to Ban Phachi in Ayutthaya, so it is impossible to funnel all new railway designs into the same area.

There are initially two solutions to the problem, Mr Ormsin said. First, the Airport Rail Link needs to cancel the Bang Sue-Don Mueang section and have its commuters who want to go to Don Mueang airport take the Red Line at the Bang Sue station to their destination.

The other proposal is to share the track with the Thai-Chinese dual track project, linking Bangkok and Nakhon Ratchasima, he said.

The SRT is considering them both, but the share track option is more likely, he added.

Officials are also working on the Suvarnabhumi-U-Tapao section where the construction cost is estimated to be at least 100 billion baht, Mr Ormsin said.

This project is not a priority at the moment, but will need to be built in the long term, he said.

In addition to the results of the study on this section scheduled for March, SRT governor Wuthichart Kalyanamitra said his agency will also consider another alternative to include the U-Tapao airport station in a planned high-speed rail projection from Bangkok to Pattaya and Rayong.

U-Tapao airport is scheduled to open for commercial service in July this year to help relieve overcrowding at Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports.

Which one? If you mean the east coast line, then this line is already in double track.
Thai-Japanese electrified double tracking of meter gauge will begin in a couple of days though.

MRT Pink line Monorail - (34.5 km) and MRT Yellow line Monorail - (30.4 km) will now be up for bidding in May instead of July.

These two lines will be given to PPP board for approval in February and given to the Cabinet for approval in March, where bidding will take place in May.

What's the deal with the Airport Link extension to U-Tapao? U-Tapao is a tiny airport. Wouldn't the planned HSR line to Rayong be enough of a fast connection?

U-Tapao airport has been expanded with a new terminal 2 that can handle 3 million passenger a year (will open this year).

However when the Bangkok-Rayong HSR get constructed, they will most likely scrap their plan and add U-tapao station to the HSR instead.

Amenities on ARL (elevator, taxi stop)

I have question regarding ARL amenities , are elevators and taxi stops available on all ARL stations?
I know that Suvarnabhumi nad Phay Thai has them but what about others? I am mainly interested in Lat Krabang station.

Yes there are escalators and elevators on all ARL stations, however I'm not so sure about taxi stands, but it shouldn't be a problem to find taxi at Lat Prabang station.

Harsh words about the mismanagement of the Airport Rail Link in 2014, which finally led to the suspension of the express line service. I hope these problems don't persist.

this is due to the fact that SRT has used revenue from SRTET to cut down the loss in the annual balance sheets to make their account look better in the eyes of MoF and cabinet, depriving the financial resources for SRTET to pay for spare parts for major maintenance - and now it is about the time to let private sector to take over SRTET operation and make a final divorce from SRT.

Furthermore, during the construction, the negotiation to cut the budget with MoF have resulted in much less facilities than it is supposed to be.

SRT Dark Red line - (26 km) - 48.65% & SRT Light Red line - (15 km) - 100%

Contract 3 has now been settled and electrification and EMU procurements from MHSC (Mitsubishi Heavy Industry - Hitachi - Sumitomo) can now begin. Both red lines will be operational in 2018.

the extra budget also cover the case of adding the 4th tracks at 8,104 Million Baht

Contract 1: Bangsue Central - Chatuchak station + maintenance center got 4,315 Million Baht from 29,826 Million Baht to STECON and UNIQ Engineer

Contract 2: Section from Samian Naree all the way to Rangsit got 3,352 Million Baht from 21,235 Million Baht to ITD

Contract 3: Electrification and signal - 473 million Baht from 32,399 Million Baht to MHSC (Mitsubishi Heavy Industry - Hitachi - Sumitomo)

this extra budget will be covered by JICA loan (5,897.22 Million Baht) and the rest from domestic source - this will include the electrification and EMU sets for Bangsue - Taling Chan section

Big Too also asking MoT to do the following thing in favor
1. the establishment of Rail Transport Dept to deal with mass transit nationwide as well as SRT

2. the commercialization along the railway land strip

3. Find the way to help local people of Lak Hok and Rangsit as the construction of red line commuter have effectively blocked the access of the villagers and slum dwellers around the mentioned areas.
