Right now global economy is fairly strong so any issues in Thailand must be mostly of local origin.

Before 2-3 years ago, when the global economy was weak. Now exports is up again.

Thailand 4 main drivers of growth right now are:

- Tourism
- Exports
- Infrastructure spending
- Eastern Economic Corridors (EEC)

Thailand depends strongly on exports. Exports have remained stagnant since 2011/2012 in many countries (China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea etc., Japan is still below pre-2008 levels). There has been a very recent surge in exports this year, but no one knows if it will persist.

No opposition to fast train linking three airports
17 Oct 2017 at 12:02
WRITER: ONLINE REPORTERS AND CHAIYOT PUPATTANAPONG

There has been no public opposition at hearings on a planned high-speed railway linking three international airports - Don Mueang, Suvarnabhumi and U-tapao, according to the project manager.

The 200 billion baht project is part of plan to establish transport links across the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) by connecting Don Mueang airport in Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi airport in Samut Prakan and U-tapao airport in Rayong.

Project manager Sayant Iamsom-somboon said on Tuesday more than 160,000 passengers were expected to use the service each day.

The State Rail of Thailand, the operator, estimated that at least 103,920 people would use the City Line route from Don Mueang in Bangkok to Suvarnabhumi in Samut Prakan daily, he said.

The high-speed route from Suvarnabhumi to Rayong is expected to carry about 65,630 passengers per day.

According to Mr Sayant, there was no opposition from people along the planned corridors during recent public hearings organised by the SRT. The most recent was on Monday.

However, people did ask that measures be put in place to control dust and walls of sound absorbing materials be built to reduce noise pollution.

The 260km Bangkok-Rayong railway will run from Bangkok through Samut Prakan, Chachoengsao and Chon Buri and terminate at Rayong.

There will be 10 stations along the route. Eight will be elevated -- Don Mueang, Bang Sue, Makkasan, Chachoengsao, Chon Buri, Sri Racha, Pattaya and Rayong.

Suvarnabhumi and U-tapao stations will be underground, Mr Sayant said.

BTS - BEM now signing MOU on the joint ticket system (Maengmum cards) on 18 October 2017 - hope to be ready in October 2018 - now, Maengmum card can be used in the first 500 BMTA buses
https://www.prachachat.net/property/news-55995[


Maengmum cards will be ready for Airport link and bus in June 2018 and BTS-BEM in October 2018, a year after MoU between BTS and BEM

Hope to get the clear plan for the construction of Pink monorail and Yellow monorail within 3 months from November 2017 - and the removal of infrastructure along Yellow monorail line and Pink monorail line started in November 2017

the bones of contention for pink monorail are
1) Laksi station - since BTSC want to use the area of Highway Dept to construct Lak Si station
2) Highway Dept has raised a concern on the traffic management on ram Indra road.

For Yellow Monorail, there are the bone of contention at
1) Flyover across Bang Kapi - Lam Salee intersection - partially settlement with BMA
2) the section across Saensaeb canal - no settlement with BMA
3) the underpass across Phatthanakarn road near Hua Mark railway statio n
4) Wat Sri Iam interchange
https://www.prachachat.net/property/news-56705

E-Book on Yellow Monorail
https://goo.gl/MbVHj9

Bearing - Samut Prakarn extension opened in December 2018 - now, the daily number of passengers for BTS Skytrain has reached 666,504 men a day with growth rate of 3-5% - and the previous year revenue has reached 10,405 Million Baht

10 set out of 22 new sets of 4-car EMU from Siemens will be delivered in early 2018 and the rest will be delivered by the end of 2018. For the case of 24 set of 4-car EMUs from CRRC Changchun, they will be all delivered by the end of 2019
https://www.posttoday.com/biz/gov/520827

still have a bone of contention for transferring BTS SKytrain extension from Bearing to Samut Prakarn with the price tag of 21,403 Million Baht and from Mochit of Khoo Khot with the price tag of 39,412 Million Baht (total 60,815 million Baht) which is stretching the annual budget of BMA to the dangerous point - BMA will have to take a responsibility on the debt at 30%, 50% or even 70%

There will be considered for the extension from Pak Nam to bang Poo at 13,700 Million Baht and Khoo Khot to Lam Look Ka at 11,900 Million Baht - with a hope to get cabinet approval in 2018 but BMA and MRTA have to make a settlement on the transfer first - 23.6 km at 101,112 Million Baht

the regular rate for Purple line at 14 - 42 Baht resumed on 1 Nov 2017 to boost more revenue by 30%

the bone of contention at the new parliament at Kiakkai along with the bone of contention at National Library along with Rattanakosin Island have delayed the Southern extension of purple line to be on bidding in 2018

This is a late reply but from my experience living near Bangsue station, the traffic around this area in the morning is a lot better now. (It is still a bit jam because of SCG employees whose homes are far and have to drive still but it is only until 8 anyway.)

Now people can just catch a train from any purple line stations without getting to Bangsue.

But to be honest, I don’t care if it actually helps to relief the traffic or not. I just wanna have more choices not to drive.

For the contract 3 with Mitsubishi - Sumitomo - Hitachi, it is 18.60% done still lagged behind the goal by 13%
