Airport link launch delayed

Bangkokpost Published: 4/03/2010 at 12:00 AM


The State Railway of Thailand is delaying the opening of its Airport Rail Link after it found the developer Siemens would be unable to finish the railway on time.

SRT governor Yutthana Thapcharoen yesterday said his agency had planned to start commercial services between inner Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi airport next month, but Siemens was not ready to hand over the system.

The opening would be put off for at least a few more months.

Mr Yutthana said Siemens had not installed all 70 surveillance cameras required along the railway. Radio communications do not cover the link's tunnel at the airport and the power supply for the railway was not yet stable. The installation of the cameras should be finished next week, and Siemens would then turn its attention to the radio communications and put in place a back-up power supply.

"The power supply is a big problem," Mr Yuthana said. "It must pass tests. Trains will stop if the service starts and encounters a blackout."

He said there were also other smaller problems. He had ordered staff to report any problems so he could alert the SRT board, which would then find ways to solve them.

Mr Yuthana said it would take three more months to test the 28km, 26 billion baht system after Siemens handed it over to the SRT. The agency will seek compensation from the German company for the delays, Mr Yutthana said.

Airport Rail Link trial next month

By The Nation Published on March 20, 2010


Transport Minister Sophon Saram yesterday announced the Airport Rail Link would start free services after the Songkran holiday, from either Makkasan or Phya Thai Station to Suvarnabhumi Airport.

He said Makkasan Station was so vast that expenditure on security might not be worthwhile for the trial run, while Phya Thai Station was connected to the Skytrain. However, a linking bridge, to be built at a cost of Bt9.1 million, will take three months to complete after a contract is signed in May.

Sophon also insisted the railway's commercial operations would start in late July.

Thai State Railway Hires DB International To Operate New Line


BANGKOK -(Dow Jones)- The board of State Railway of Thailand Thursday agreed to hire Germany's DB International GMBH to operate and provide maintenance on the new electric rail service linking Suvarnabhumi airport to central Bangkok from April to August for THB239 million ($7.4 million).

The trial period for the 28-kilometer rail line, which will shuttle passengers to and from Bangkok's international airport within 15 minutes, will start in late April while commercial operation is expected to commence in July, SRT Chairman Suphoth Sublom said after the board's meeting.

During the trial period, services will be provided free of charge for three hours in the morning and another three hours in the evening, he said.

The SRT plans for a wholly owned unit to run the rail line when it operates commercially, said Suphoth.

Looking forward to my visit this August! Anything I cannot miss on the BTS or MRT system?

Will the airport express be up and running by that time?

Rail link baggage firms named

Bangkokpost Published: 25/04/2010 at 12:00 AM


The two companies now operating the baggage handling and passenger check-in systems at Suvarnabhumi Airport will provide the same services for the Airport Rail Link.

The State Railway of Thailand's board has chosen Dan-Thai Equipment Co to operate and provide maintenance for the Airport Rail Link's baggage handling system.

Samart Comtech Co, which presently handles passenger and luggage check-in at the airport, was selected to provide the same services to passengers checking in before boarding trains at Makkasan terminal.

In separate three-year agreements, Dan-Thai Equipment would be hired for 165 million baht and Samart Comtech for 110 million baht, said permanent secretary for transport Supoth Sublom.

Allowing the same operators handling baggage and check-in services at Suvarnabhumi to run similar services for the Airport Rail Link was important to ensure smooth operations, said Mr Supoth, who is also the SRT chairman. The SRT board has also approved a proposal to hire District Cooling System and Power Plant Co, which operates Suvarnabhumi's air-conditioning and chilled drinking water dispensing systems to handle the air-conditioning system at the Airport Rail Link's Suvarnabhumi station.

The SRT is expected to begin a test run of the much-touted rail system from the inner city to the airport starting on Friday.

Transport Minister Sohpon Zarum said the shuttle rail link would start commercial operations in either July or August.

I'm in BKK later this month, but I don't think there will be much to see as yet, will there?
