Airport Rail Link dispute goes off the rails

Bangkokpost Published: 16/09/2009 at 12:00 AM


Transport Minister Sohpon Zarum's claims he has solved the industrial dispute surrounding the embattled airport rail link have left the SRT and the powerful rail union baffled.

Mr Sophon said he had held "informal negotiations" with a leading State Railway of Thailand unionist over the Suvarnabhumi airport rail project.

He said the talks had led to an agreement that the union would allow the Airport Rail Link project to be set up as part of a new SRT subsidiary.

However, SRT governor Yutthana Thapcharoen yesterday said he was not aware of any talks between the minister and the union.

SRT union leader Sawit Kaewwan also denied the workers had reached an agreement with the ministry.

But Mr Sophon insisted the issue had been settled.

"I have reached an agreement with the union representative, whom I did not want to identify by name," Mr Sohpon said. "The talk led to an understanding and the union agreed to soften its position."

The union previously wanted the debt-ridden railway agency to set up a business unit to handle the new project to make sure it would remain under the SRT's direct control.

But under the SRT's restructuring plan, the agency is to set up a subsidiary responsible for commercial and freight services.

hmm, so if it will cost 150B I don't care about rail link, rather take airconditioned orange bus 556 which goes directly to KSR for 35B (or was few years ago)

By The Nation 17/09/2009


The Airport Rail Link will operate the test run on October 1, in preparation for official operation commencement on Dec 5 as planned.

Yuthana Thapcharoen, governor of the State Railway of Thailand, said on Monday that the public is invited to join the test run, with the tickets available at the Makkasan office or SRT public relations office. The train that connects Suvarnabhumi Airport and the city terminal in Makkasan will open for the public once a week.


After it is open for commercial operations, the train will charge maximum Bt150 for the express line and Bt15-Bt40 for the city line.

Govt to speed up airport link

Writer: BangkokPost.com Published: 24/09/2009 at 04:45 PM


The airport link railway is ready to operate and the government will launch it as quickly as possible, Deputy Prime Minister Korbsak Sabhavasu said on Thursday.

The deputy prime minister, who is in charged of economic affairs, was speaking after a test run of the 28.6 kilometre route linking Makkasan train station in Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi airport in Samut Prakan province.

About 1,100 representatives of the Association of Thai Travel Agents (ATTA) were present.

"From the test run, I can say that the airport link system is ready to operate," Mr Korbsak said.

However, more staff needed to be trained before operations could begin.

"The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) has not been able to set up a subsidiary for this, and it could take at least nine months, or until mid-2010, for all the staff to be trained," he said.

Mr Korbsak said he will invite SRT executives and all related agencies to a meeting to speed up the process.

ATTA member Thongyoo Supphawitthayakorn said the government should get the airport rail link operating as soon as possible as it would boost the tourism sector.

“This mass transit rail system will benefit tourism related business operators, as they can reduce their client service costs,” Mr Thongyoo said.

He confirmed the number of foreign visitors had dropped about 30 per cent due, and blamed the ongoing political conflict and the anti-government demonstrations.

“It is not possible that the number of foreign arrivals in 2009 will reach the 14 million target of the Tourism Authority of Thailand . The figure this year is more likely to be 11 million at the most,” he said.

The political turmoil had driven foreign tourists to visit neighboring countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia and China.

The Rail Link will make another test run on Oct 1, in preparation for the planned official commencement of operations on Dec 5.
