AFP: Thailand approves long-delayed US$5.2 billion rail link to China

http://www.scmp.com/news/asia/southe...ail-link-china

Thailand’s military government on Tuesday approved US$5.2 billion to build the first stretch of a high-speed railway that will ultimately link Bangkok to southern China, a massive joint infrastructure project with Beijing that has been dogged by delays.

The project is part of China’s huge regional infrastructure plan to build a high-speed rail network connecting the southern city of Kunming with Laos, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.

Construction has already begun in Laos but the Thai segment of rail has been stymied for years by tussles over financing, loan terms and protective labour regulations in the Southeast Asian kingdom.

The funding approval from Thailand’s cabinet came after junta chief Prayuth Chan-ocha invoked his absolute powers last month to clear a series of legal and technical hurdles standing in the way of the deal.

“The Cabinet has approved phase one of the high speed railway ... from Bangkok to Korat with 179 billion baht (US$5.2 billion) budget for a four-year plan,” said Kobsak Pootrakool from the Prime Minister’s office.

The first stage of the high-speed line will run 250km between Bangkok and the northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima, also known as Korat. The plan is to then extend the track to Nong Khai on the border with Laos.

Thailand will cover the construction costs but the vast majority of technical expertise will come from Chinese engineers – something that has disgruntled local firms who were angered by Prayuth’s decision to loosen restrictions placed on foreign engineers.

“Thailand will be responsible for the construction, while China will be responsible for design,” Thai Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said on Tuesday.

The rail deal is one of the biggest foreign investment projects in Thailand in years and is part of Beijing’s “One Belt, One Road” infrastructure drive which aims to revive ancient Silk Road trading routes.

China’s largesse and increased investment presence in Asia comes as rival power the US becomes more isolationist under President Donald Trump.

Thailand’s junta has grown closer to Beijing since its 2014 power grab, shelling out billions on Chinese arms and welcoming investment from the regional superpower.

The Ministry of Transport is speeding up the Bangkok-Nakhon Ratchasima high-speed train project
after getting the green light by the Cabinet


The expected construction is in October this year



Mr. Arkhom Termpittayapaisith Minister of Transport revealed the results of the Cabinet meeting yesterday that the Cabinet meeting has approved the cooperation projects of high-speed railway between Thailand - China for the Bangkok - Nakhon Ratchasima route at 1,790,413 million baht. It is a 100% investment from Thailand and the contract is divided in two project contracts. Contract 1 is for civil construction, accounting for 75% of the value of the contract. Contract 2 consists of 3 contracts, representing 25% of the value of the contract. 2.1 Contract Design 2.2. Civil and Contracts Control. 2.3 Railway Systems and Training Works.

It is expected at the 20th meeting between August 15 -17, 2017 that it will be possible to sign the contract 2.1 with the proposal of the Cabinet for approval and in early September to sign the contract 2.2. After these two contracts are signed, construction will commence on the first 3.5 km stretch, with a budget of 425 million baht in October 2017. The Department of Highways is assigned to carry out the construction, since it will be faster because it is a government agency.

However, in terms of investment budget, the Cabinet has assigned the Ministry of Finance to consider it. The Office of the Budget has proposed to use the loan to carry out the project, which will be foreign loans and domestic money, except for land ownership. This will need to be considered again as appropriate.

No need for bidding for the First section of Thai - China High Speed train - 3.5 km at 425 Million Baht since Highway Dept is going to do this construction - started in October 2017 only after the 20th meeting
to get the detail design contract signed on 15-17 August 2017 and project consultant contract signed since September 2017. Thai government also ask Chinese government to issue the detailed design for
the second contract within 4 months instead of 8 months so as to call the bidding for the next 11 km

Budget of Year 2017 at 2,648 Million Baht
Budget of Year 2018 at 43,097 Million Baht
Budget of Year 2019 at 62,216 Million Baht
Budget of Year 2020 at 59,702 Million Baht and
Budget of Year 2021 at 12,017 Million Baht

the Opening date will be December 2021 with the ticket prices up to 535 Baht using the rate of 80 Baht + 1.8 Baht per km distance (total 253 km), so the rate will be

Bangsue Central - Saraburi at 278 Baht
Bangsue Central - Pak Chong at 393 Baht
Bangsue Central - Nakhon Ratchasima at 535 Baht - travel time 67 minutes

the train will run 90 minute interval with the seat of 600 seats per set (totally 6 sets) - with expected number of daily passengers at 5310 passengers a day in 2021 before going up to 26830 passengers a day in 2051 due to 26 trains which run at 35 minute interval

the economic benefit will be 11.68% for Bangsue Central - Nakhon Ratchasima (6 stations - Bangsue central, Donmueang, Ayutthaya, Saraburi, Pakchong, Nakhon Ratchasima with maintainance
center at Chiang Rak Noy) after major urban development around the station to boost from the current rate of 8.5% but it will be up to 13.52% once it has been extended to Nong Khai with the stations at Ban Phai, Khon Kaen, Udonthani an Nong Khai

However, the section from Kaeng Khoi to Map Ta Phut via Klong 19 bypass will added later

Need land exappropriation for curve correcting to ensure 250 kph max speed (around 10-15%) - 818 Rai on Bangsue section, 1997 Rai for Ban Phachi section - totally 212 million Baht

Plan for land development on 541.47 rai of land around new Pak Chong station of Thai - China railway - even though it is Treasury Dept land used by Army Ordinance Dept as factories but there are a lot of people in Tha Manao community in Nong Sarai commune, and Phrom Pradit village in Chanthuk commune of Pak Chong district - so compensation for those local people are in need -

Just the new Pak Chong station alone cover 277,461 sq. meter of land (173.4 Rai) - no community while the actual commercialized land will be on 588,900 sq. meter of land (368 Rai) - even though Army men and Treasury Dept have agreed with development scheme but the local people who have to move out are going up against such a plan by showing defiance against the Treasury Dept who are going to evict them out
http://www.springnews.co.th/th/2017/07/71439/

MoT explaining NLA about Thai - China High Speed train phase 1 (Bangsue Central - Nakhon Ratchaisma) - 252.5 km at 179,412 Million Baht - 250 kph max speed with 11 trains a day - travelling time from Bangsue central to Khorat at 67 minutes - NLA men agree but still raising a concern on 2800 Rai of land exappropriation due to the rising protest by those farmers who lease Treasury land around Pak Chong high speed train station - not to mention about 150000 Million Baht track and rolling stock maintenance cost

competitors for High Speed trains to Khorat - Bang Pa In - Khorat motorway
https://www.prachachat.net/property/news-9754


Clear point from OTP - no extension from Donmueang to Ayutthaya for the airport link extension to connect Donmueang, Suvannabhum and U-Tapao together since the study on the PPP on airport link extension to connect Donmueang, Suvannabhum and U-Tapao together is almost done and the extension to Ayutthaya would postpone PPP plan for years instead of by the end of 2017. Furthermore, this extension is a duplication with High Speed train to Chiang Mai which is Thai - Japan project - those who want to go to AYutthaya better change the train at Bangsue central instead

SRT Governor insisting that the Donmuang - U-Tapao - Rayong High Speed train with 50 year concession for as PPP Net cost with commercial developments on 204 rai of Makkasan central along with commercial developments on 10 stations with the investment of 308,000 Million Baht are for easing the financial burden vof the government since Article 6 and Article 9 of Railway Act of BE 2494 has allowed SRT to do so even the Civil and Commercial Code has limited the concession to 30 year but it is expected that Junta and SRT are going to find the way to get around anyway - the bone of contention which are to be solved is the new place to replace Makkasan Factory
http://manager.co.th/Business/ViewNe...=9600000083211


Even after te bargaining that cut down the designing fee from 2014 million Baht to 1706 million Baht while the personnel hiring have been changed from 500 chinese to 50 Chinese + 450 Thailanders which effectively cut from 5140 million Baht to 4000 million Baht but MoF still want to make a cut to 3000 million Baht even though it is still well over the cabinet approved budget of 1648 million Baht - a bone of contention indeed

the consultant fee of Thai - China Railway is another bone of contention since Chinese government insists 3000 Million baht consultant fee is the minimum acceptable price even though Ministry of Finance of Thailand insisting that 1648 million baht is the maximum they can pay to Chinese government

Page for High Speed train that connect 3 Airports (Donmueang - Suvannabhum - U Tapao) ==> http://www.hsr3airports.com/



Route with the total distance of 244 km
1. Existing Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link and City Air Terminal (ARL) => 28.7 km
2. Airport Rail Link Extension : Phaya Yhai – Don Mueang (ARLEX) => 21.8 km
3. High Speed Rail : Bangkok (Lad Krabang) - Suvannabhum – Rayong (HSR) => 193.5 km



Suvannabhum Triangle - allowing High Speed train to make direct access to Suvannabhum Airport station



Donmueang Station - at Donmueang station of red line commuter by staggering up - definitely the area at the old Donmueang station has been reserved for High Speed train to Chiang Mai via Phitsanuloke



U-Tapao Triangle to allow the access to U-Tapao international Airport before heading to Rayong

ticket for Airport city line at 13 + (2.0 x travelling distance in km) HSR ticket at 20 + (1.8 x travelling distance in km) opened in 2023


Cabinet approving 3500 Million Baht for consultant fees on Thai - China High Speed train - up from 1,649.08 Million Baht - a compromise rate when the original rate has failed to recognize the cost overrun due to the hike of Chinese consultant fees

the expected number of passengers in 2023 are - Donmueang - Suvannabhum 103,920 men a day - Suvannabhum - U-Tapao - Rayong 65,630 men a day - total 169550 men a day - the future goal 362,410 men a day

Contracts signed as Thai high speed project progresses
05 Sep 2017



THAILAND: Officials from Thailand and China signed two co-operation contracts for the planned Bangkok – Nakhon Ratchasima high speed railway project on the sidelines of the three-day BRICS Summit in Xiamen, which ended on September 5.

The contracts are worth 5·2bn baht and cover ‘design and supervision’ tasks for the new railway. The planned 1,435 mm gauge high speed line would be designed to Chinese standards for operation at up to 250 km/h, and would cover a 252 km route between the two cities.

The long-delayed project will be financed wholly by Thailand, at a cost estimated to be 179bn baht. But project delivery and railway systems will be covered by Chinese organisations, under the terms of a bilateral agreement. The agreement has proved controversial in Thailand, but the project was approved by the Thai cabinet in July.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-o-Cha was invited to participate in the BRICS summit by Chinese President Xi Jinping, having been left off the list of invitees for a high-profile ‘Belt and Road’ infrastructure conference in May. Observers had viewed this as a snub for overt the failure to launch the high speed project.

The Bangkok – Nakhon Ratchasima scheme is the latest iteration of a proposal that would have been Chinese-funded and connected with the railway now being built from China into Laos. However, negotiations on an extension of the trans-Laos railway into Thailand are reported to have collapsed when Chinese officials discovered that the Thai government was pushing ahead with double-tracking the existing metre-gauge railway between Bangkok and the border city of Nong Khai.

Contracts signed as Thai high speed project progresses
Railway gazette
05 Sep 2017

Investment in Thailand's extensive metre-gauge main line network has cast doubt on the viability of a long-planned standard gauge railway linking the country to China via Laos.

THAILAND: Officials from Thailand and China signed two co-operation contracts for the planned Bangkok – Nakhon Ratchasima high speed railway project on the sidelines of the three-day BRICS Summit in Xiamen, which ended on September 5.

The contracts are worth 5·2bn baht and cover ‘design and supervision’ tasks for the new railway. The planned 1 435 mm gauge high speed line would be designed to Chinese standards for operation at up to 250 km/h, and would cover a 252 km route between the two cities.

But project delivery and railway systems will be covered by Chinese organisations, under the terms of a bilateral agreement. The agreement has proved controversial in Thailand, but the project was approved by the Thai cabinet in July.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-o-Cha was invited to participate in the BRICS summit by Chinese President Xi Jinping, having been left off the list of invitees for a high-profile ‘Belt and Road’ infrastructure conference in May. Observers had viewed this as a snub for overt the failure to launch the high speed project.

The Bangkok – Nakhon Ratchasima scheme is the latest iteration of a proposal that would have been Chinese-funded and connected with the railway now being built from China into Laos. However, negotiations on an extension of the trans-Laos railway into Thailand are reported to have collapsed when Chinese officials discovered that the Thai government was pushing ahead with double-tracking the existing metre-gauge railway between Bangkok and the border city of Nong Khai.

Thai version of this news: Thai government is signing the 5,206.771 Million Baht contract to hire Chinese firms to handle design and consultant for Thai - China High Speed train during the 9th BRICS Xiamen Summit at Xia Men

Here are the contracts in question:
1. Detailed Design Services Agreement at 1,706.771 Million Baht
2. Construction Supervision Consultant Services Agreement at 3,500 Million Baht

During the 9th BRICS Xiamen Summit at Xia Men, MoT Akhom said during the construction of Bangsue Central - Nakhon Ratchasima High Speed train construction, Thai government is going to deal with the study on the extension from Nakhon Ratchasima to Nong Khai to connect with Lao - China Railway
