Thanks for that, but I'm having trouble finding info anywhere on the web on the Skytrain extensions, which seem to be proceeding very very slowly. Wikipedia says about the Phase I projects that the Wong Wian Yai extension is opening in May this year, two and a half years late. There is no date for the On nut - Bearing project though. And the Mo Chit extension has no information at all - is this under construction?

Is there any information at all for Phase II projects? Please help!

Deutsche Bahn international to run rail link

THE NATION Published on April 18, 2009


The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) has approached Germany's train operator, Deutsche Bahn International (DBI), for initial operation of the Airport Rail Link on an outsource basis. The move comes as the SRT admits it is not in a position to run the system itself. Transport Ministry deputy permanent secretary Tawalyarat Onsira, who is chairman of the SRT's board, said the two parties were negotiating a possible deal. The SRT also wants the German company to provide training for its staff and act as a consultant to its rail-link operation.

He said the SRT had earmarked Bt90 million for the deal, which should be awarded to DBI this month. DBI will start working next month.

The SRT is now forming a subsidiary to operate the rail link. It has hired Chulalongkorn University's Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration to recruit staff for the subsidiary. However, qualified SRT staff and relatives will receive preference for recruitment.


Tawalyarat said the Airport Rail Link would begin trial operations on August 12, with full service by the end of this year or early next.

The Airport Rail Link will connect Suvarnabhumi Airport with the City Air Terminal in Bangkok's Makkasan area.

By "two and a half years late", I think you mean "eight and a half years late" -- it was supposed to open around 2001.

In a nutshell:
- On Nut-Bearing ("Phase I") is nearing completion and is to open in 2011
- Mo Chit extension ("Phase I") has not been tendered, much less started construction
- Wong Wian Yai to Bang Wah/Th. Phetkasem ("Phase II") had most of its viaduct completed back in 2004 (!). This too is supposed to open in 2011, but they still haven't decided where the stations will go and thus haven't started building them (...)
- Nothing else in Phase II has started yet

You'll find 2Bangkok and especially its forum the best place for English-language updates on Bangkok's infrastructure projects.
