Clear Point from SRT about red line commuter:
1. SRT is going to run red line commuter networks by themselves
2. Currently, Bangsue Central is 50% done
3. Bangsue Central and red line commuter will be opened in July 2020
4. SRT is asking contractors to add more workers to speed up the works even though it is a tough job

Progress Report
Contract 1 Civil works on Bangsue Central and Maintenance Center along with Chatuchak station - 90% done - 6 more month to be done
Contract 2 Civil works on the section from Wat Samian Naree to Rangsit 60% done - 27 more months to be done
Contract 3 Electro mechanic along with electrification and EMUs purchase - 17 % done - 3 more years to be done

by the demands from Chinese tourists - but the way to use Chinese names are according to Teochew dialect (潮州話 )


Red line commuter networks will be ready according to the schedule (Year 2020) - with the daily number of passengers at 70000 men a day in the first year

Do you mean the route or detailed design? Designs are not finalised yet.

This will provide an idea of the route, basically from the north of the island & the airport to Phuket city;

Fifth major rail order for Siemens in Bangkok

Siemens Press Release | 2017-Sep-19




Bangkok Expressway and Metro Public Company Limited (BEM) and CH. Karnchang Public Company Limited are working with a consortium of Siemens and ST Electronics (Thailand) Limited to deliver rail technology for the extension of Bangkok’s Blue Line Metro. The scope of Siemens’ delivery includes 35 three-car metro trains, the signaling system, the traction power supply and complete equipment for the depot and workshop. In addition, Siemens will perform maintenance services of the transit system for a period of ten years. Commissioning of the line extension is planned for 2019-2020. When completed, BEM will be the transport operator for this line.

BSR secures lending deal for rail lines

Somruedi Banchongduang | Bangkok Post | 9 Oct 2017 at 07:44

Three large banks -- Bangkok Bank (BBL), Krungthai Bank and Siam Commercial Bank -- are set to sign a syndicated loan contract with BSR Joint Venture in the next week or so to finance the construction of the Pink and Yellow monorail lines.

The loan is expected to be drawn down next year, delayed from the previous schedule of the fourth quarter this year because of additional details and the complicated process of the projects, BBL chairman Deja Tulananda said, without revealing the size of the syndicated loan.

BSR Joint Venture is a venture between BTS Group Holding Plc, Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction Plc, and Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding Plc. BTS holds 75% of the BSR consortium, while STEC holds 15% and Ratch owns the remaining 10%.

The two projects have a combined value of 100 billion baht, of which the government will inject 40 billion for related civil works and BSR will invest 60 billion for construction, train operation and management.

63360 Million Baht loan from BBL, SCB and KTB to help BTSC to borrown for the construction of Pink Monorail and Yellow Monorail
http://www.moneychannel.co.th/news_detail/19179

Thonburi - Siriraj terminus of red line commuter (light red line) will have 12-floor hospital as the extension of Siriraj Hospital with a price tag around 2000 Million Baht - in addition for the budget ton construct red line commuter extension from Talingchan to Thonburi - Siriraj Terminus with the total distance of 5.8 km and a price tag 7,469 Million Baht.

This red line commuter extension (Talingchan - Thonburi (Siriraj)) is to fulfill the last wish of the late King Rama IX who had given an advise on the way to deal with rising traffic jam around Bangkok Noy - Siriraj area on 27 June 2011 - with the red line commuter extension from Talingchan to Salaya to bring those student of Mahidol University to reach Siriraj without trouble. The construction of this 12-floor Hospital building will be started in May 2018 while red line commuter extension will start the construction in June 2018 and it will take 30 months to be done and opened in December 2020

This red line commuter extension (Talingchan - Thonburi (Siriraj)) will consist of 3 stations
1. Talingchan Floating market at grade station near the level crossing with Chimplee road - 1.8 km from Talingchan station

2. Charansanitwongse station as elevated station at Bang Khun nont - 2.7 km from Talingchan Floating market station

3. Thonburi - Siriraj terminus - at Grade station behind Siriraj Hospital - 1.3 km from Charansanitwongse station

This will give the traffic relief around Siriraj and Wang Lang area along with Arun Amarin, Charansanitwongse, Bang Khun Nont Boromraj Chonnanee and Taling Chan floating market - this extension also connect with Orange line MRT and this line expect to have 29400 passengers a day

Once red line commuter extension has been completed, Medical school at Siriraj, Medical school at ramadhibodee and Mahidol University will be connected by electric rail transport while allowing patients to have better access

As far as I'm aware Thailand is still about the same middle income country as a decade ago so a massive influx of free cash is probably not it...
I just attended a SCB seminar, they say the massive infrastructure spending is to stimulate the local economy. Without it, the country is in dire shape given the condition of the worldwide economy as well.

Just curious, do any of these projects actually provide traffic relief? Usually with the new lines, they build dozens of new apartments/condos. I can understand some relief from some of the choke points (such as bridges or areas with one way streets) but with a massive influx of residential buildings, I would think the traffic counts would not change much.

Western extension of Orange line MRT from Thailand Cultural center to Bang Khun Non with provision to extend to Taling Chan via Pratoo Nam area and Phetburi road. This line also pass Rattanakosin Island and Ratchadamnoen Avenue, Sanam Luang, Thonburi railway terminus before ending up at Bang Khun Nont station of Blue ring at the time being - Hope that the bidding can be started in 2018 - this line has connected with several MRT though

clear point from State Enterprise Committee lead by PM Prayut - SRT is not supposed run red line commuter networks unless they have come up with much better plan than the one proposed by SRT (32 Baht maximum or even flat rate) due to the fact that the way SRT is running SRTET to run Airport link with bureaucratic red tapes have upset so many passengers due to the delay on proper maintenance since SRT Board keep milking revenue from SRTET to cover SRT operating loss rather than letting SRTET pay for proper maintenance of 9 rolling stocks, installing platform screen doors and the purchase of 7 new sets of EMU.
