It is almost impossible for the MRT Pink and Yellow monorail lines to open in 2021. The usual optimistic forecast.

I'd expect mid 2022 at the earliest but more likely late 2022 or early 2023.

I said the same to one of the CEOs of the BSR JV and he stated that he was aiming to complete ahead of schedule. The Pink and Yellow line are projected to officially open in April 2021. We should be aware that Bombardier have successfully completed similar lengths of Monorail lines in other Countries within a 3 year time frame, due to the easier construction than the system previously used for the BTS here. I expect these lines to be completed on time.

Pracharat is ignoring the fact that Bearing to Samrong (1.2km) has already opened AND that only 7 of the proposed 9 stations are being built for this extension - with the 2 others being built at a later time.

Perhaps more correctly, Samrong to Samut Prakarn 11.6km with 6 stations opening in Dec.

No line nor extension in Bangkok has ever opened on schedule. As you know, delays of 12 months or more are not uncommon. This might be especially so in these two projects given the site access issues with the Highways dept.

They are also going to encounter many unforeseen technical problems both on the civil works side and I predict especially with E&S. The timetable looks especially difficult for the Yellow Line given that major work is still some months way from beginning.

I still feel 2022 is much more realistic. However, let's wait and see how the next 12-18 months unfolds.....

Transport's the winning ticket
Govt hopes for progress in big-spending projects ahead of election
8 Jan 2018 at 12:54 | WRITER: OM JOTIKASTHIRA

This will be an interesting year for Bangkok's infrastructure scene, with the government's unrelenting efforts to bolster development across the country becoming ever more apparent.

Whether the copious big-money transport network projects will face more delays or maintain their timeframes, however, is a matter that transport authorities and the government will need to address in the months to come. With an election promised for late this year, the government is hoping many projects will start to deliver.

Infrastructure plans prioritised
The government is racing to set the massive transport projects into motion before the tentative November general election, writes Chatrudee Theparat
2 Jan 2018 at 04:00 | WRITER: CHATRUDEE THEPARAT

With Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha pledging to call a general election some time in 2018 between September and December, the government is likely to be busy revving up the development of myriad big-ticket infrastructure projects.

The Transport Ministry's infrastructure development plan calls for ongoing development projects estimated at a combined 103 billion baht in fiscal 2018.

The projects are mainly light rail tracks in key provinces like Phuket, Chiang Mai, Nakhon Ratchasima and Khon Kaen.

Similar rail projects in Phitsanulok and Udon Thani, the intercity motorway linking Bangkok and Mahachai in Samut Sakhon, the improvement of two airports in Khon Kaen and Krabi, and a dry port development in Khon Kaen are likely to be proposed for development in 2018.

I'm not trying to be political, just thinking about these transportation projects, but if a new leader is elected, can they have the transport projects halted or cancelled all together?

No, the next government must continue the projects. Cancelling these projects would be unwise and their term will for sure be shortlived.
What might happen could be adjustment to some of these projects, such as speed up electrification of double track lines ahead of plan or some other conditions.
And of course, the next government will likely propose their own infrastructure projects as well.

Every political parties wants a piece of these infrastructure projects and say that they got it built in their term.

In the past, a change in Government included a demand for new "envelopes" from the constructors of these projects, such as in the cases of the SNC Lavelin Sky train and the Hopewell projects. It is more than likely that the CEO of STEC which is a JV Partner with BTS will be in the next civilian Government possibly as PM. In that case, the transportation projects are more likely to speed up. Despite reports, the election is most likely to be May 2019.

they would not dare to make such a political suicide for sure - since Junta is also offering LRT and monorails in other major cities including Chiang Mai, Khorat, Hatyai, Phuket, Pataya or even Phitsanuloke, Rayong or so.

Why would they even want to cancel them? No one doubts the usefulness of new urban mass transit lines.

Successor governments might change HSR plans, though. Those projects are mostly controversial and high risk concerning ROI. I still think they are pretty crazy projects that will/would cause unpleasant holes in state coffers for at least 20 years (as has happened in almost any country which embraced HSR).

This is not the Netherlands, in Thailand much more people acknowledge how more public transport and rail infrastructure is for the good of the country in order to get beyond their current economic stagnative income. It's what other surrounding countries do as well, while South Korea and Singapore would not have thriven the way they thrive now without it.
