SRT Airport Rail Link/High Speed Rail extension | 193.5 km



Approved! Airport Rail Link/High speed rail linking Don Mueang - Suvarnabhumi - U Tapao Airports

Recently, the Eastern Special Economic Zone (EEC) Board approved a high-speed rail project linking three airports (Don Muang-Suvarnabhumi-U-Tapao) for a total of 215,100 million baht. The auction will be launched in September and it is expected to open bidding in Nov-Dec so that private investors will be able to launch the project within this year.

The Airport Rail Link will run at a speed of 160 km/h while in inner Bangkok, and 250 km/h when leaving Lat Krabang station towards Suvarnabhumi Airport and onto Pattaya and Rayong.

For the ARL HSR extension, it might seems that way at first, but they are divided into two sections. The one awaiting approval is the section from Phaya Thai to Don Mueang Airport, and the High Speed Rail section is the one from Lad Krabang station and all the way to Rayong. However both are dependent on each other, since they will share the same tracks. It will be interesting how it will be operated and run. We will find out when the Terms of References (TOR) is out in September.

To illustrate, the orange line is the Bangkok-Rayong HSR part of the ARL extension and the section allowing for a speed of 200-250 km/h,
while the red line section will be 160-180 km/h.

The Ministry of Transport has announced that, from October 1, Bangkok commuters will get to use the new Mangmoom (spider in Thai) Card — a stored value card that can be used with the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority’s NGV buses and at the interchange stations of the MRT system, the BTS Skytrain system and the Airport Rail Link system.

The ministry’s Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning projects one million users of the Mangmoom Card each day in 2016 before the number rises to 3.5 million users per day in five years, and noted that the new card will also be used as a mean of payment at several leading retailers in the future.

While Bangkok Mass Transit System PCL and Bangkok Expressway and Metro PCL, which operate the Skytrain system and the MRT system, respectively, said that they are ready for the new joint operation, and Bangkok Mass Transit Authority appears on course to install new equipment on 800 NGV buses by September 30, other related agencies are not.

The State Railway of Thailand is still waiting for the approval from the Cabinet to act as a temporary Central Clearing House for this joint operation, while SRT Electrified Train Co., Ltd., which operates the Airport Rail Link system, said it will need at least one year to install the new system once it asks and receives the approval for a 140-million-baht budget to prepare for the new system.

Nevertheless, the incomplete introduction of the new system, if implemented as scheduled, should still be good news for Bangkok commuters, who will no longer have to carry many such cards.

http://www.bltbangkok.com/CoverStory...ือ

Aim to start using Mangmoon card in 5 transport systems

Primary goal of the Ministry of Transport is that the joint ticket will be available for 5 routes: MRT Blue Line, MRT Purple Line, BTS Silom line, BTS Sukhumvit line and NGV buses.

At first the Mangmoom card will be installed at interchange stations, such as Chatuchak Station, Asoke Station, Phayathai Station etc.
All other stations will be upgraded to be able to use mangmoom cards by March next year.


What can Mangmoom card do in the future?

In the future when the system installation is complete, Mangmoom cards will attract more people to use., because the journey connecting the system will be more convenient for both the current and future trains and also motorways, expressway, bus and boat. Previously OTP predicts that in 2017, when using Mangmoom card, there will be one million people a day and 3.5 million per day in the next five years, and in the future they will be able to pay for cash. There are private companies such as Central Group, The mall and the CP Group who are interested in joining.

BMA Gold line | 1.8 km - Signing Construction Contract in August

Heavy traffic in Khlong San area prompted ICONSIAM and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) to come up with a secondary system to solve the problem,
so the BMA Gold Line was born.

The Gold line will have the construction contract signed in August and is expected to start construction later this year and be operational in early 2019.

Brown Line LRT (Monorail?) that connect Pink Monorail, Yellow Monorail, Purple Line MRT, Orange Line MRT, BTS Skytrain and Red line commuter togather after N3 expressway project has become unpopular with those students and teachers of Kasetsart University

Brown line has total distance of 21.5 km and a price tag of 44,064 Million Baht - 24,379 Million Baht for construction 13,073 Million Baht for EMUs and system 5,780 Million Baht for land exappropriation, and 832 Million Baht for engineering control consultant

the list of 22 stations of Brow Line LRT

1. Nonthaburi Government Complex - opposite of Thai Com station
2. Ngam Wongwan near Ngam Wongwan Soi 3 - near Ratchaburi Electrity Generating Holding PCL
3. Bua Kwan near Wat Bua Kwan community - and Pantip Ngam Wongwan
4. Phongphet Intersection - near the Mall Ngam Wongwan and the Mall Ngam Wongwan
5. Chinakhet, near Ngam Wongwan Soi 43
6. Bang Khen near Klong Prem Central Prison - connecting with red line commuter
7. Khunying Isara - near Ngam Wongwan gate of Kasetsart University
8. Kaset at Kaset intersection - connecting with BTS Skytrain
9. Army Post Engineer Dept
10. Lad Pla Khao Soi 39 - dropping point to Lad Plakhao road
11. Prasoed Manookit Soi 25
12. Sena Niwet - Northern gate of Sena Niwet village - Prasoed Manookit Soi 18
13. Satree Witthaya 2 school - near Prasoed Manookit Soi 22
14. Pradit Manootham near Prasoed Manookit Soi 33
15. Klong Lamjiak near Klong Lamjiak road - shortcut between Prasoed Manookit road and Pradit Manootham road
16. Ram Indra - Nawamin rad near Rotfai Market Kaset - Nawamin
17. Nuanchan near Nuanchan Soi 11
18. Pho Kaew near intersection between Nawamin road and Pho Kaew road near Nawamin Soi 60
19. Nawamin Soi 73 - near Inthararak village
20. Happy Land - near the intersection between Happy Land and Nawamin road , near old Happyland market
21. National Housing Authority
22. Lam Salee at Lam Salee intersection - connecting with Yellow Monorail and Orange line MRT

It will take 3 years to construct with a hope to get the daily number of passengers in 2021 (first year) at 32000 passengers a day - but expect more due to the rising numbers of suburb villages along with condominiums and community malls.

this line is going to please Billionaire Charoen, LPN and KE Land who have already hoarded the land banks along Kaset - Nawamin road

Blue ring extension from Hua Lamphong to Lak Song via the underwater tunnel across Chao Phraya will be ready for services in 2019 - allowing those who want to go to Yaowaraj, Grand Palace to take subway ride
