This is the reason why most of Bangkok's rail rapid transit lines have to be elevated.
That is actually not the reason. The main reason is because, it is cheaper to build elevated lines than underground lines, and that all new lines will have to go underground in main historical areas. The design of underground station entrances are build high enough to not allow floodwater to get in.

Technically construction of the line is done 100%, however it is still missing the stretch to Bang Sue Grand Station, which is still u/c, and the setting up of electrification and procurement of electric train, which is in contract 3 of SRT Dark red line.
So the SRT light red line will have to wait for the SRT Dark red line and Bang Sue Grand station to finish constructing in 2018 to be fully usable.

Right now the line is served by diesel train only.

New rail lines to link three airports

Published: 20 Nov 2014 at 16.51

The Airport Rail Link will be extended to connect Suvarnabhumi airport with Don Mueang airport and U-Tapao airport in Rayong, Transport Minister Prajin Juntong said on Thursday.

ACM Prajin Juntong said the Airport Rail Link, which connects Suvarnabhumi airport and Bangkok's inner district of Phaya Thai, would be extended to Don Mueang airport in northern Bangkok and to U-Tapao airport in the eastern province of Rayong, near Pattaya.

Work on the extension will begin with a 22-kilometre-long link from Phaya Thai to Don Mueang, he said. The estimated cost of this section was 29 billion baht.

The National Environmental Board already approved the plan, but the cabinet had yet to endorse it, ACM Prajin said.

For the 190km extension to U-Tapao, which is now rated an international airport, the minister said transport authorities would have to discuss it with the Royal Thai Navy, which supervises the airport. He expected the talks to be concluded in the second half of next year.

The route for the Airport Link to U-Tapao would also have to be finalised, and a decision made whether it should start from Suvarnabhumi, Makkasan or Lat Krabang area of Bangkok. Six stations were planned along the route and their locations would have to be decided, the minister said.

These would be Chachoengsao, Chon Buri, Si Racha, Pattaya, U-Tapao and Rayong stations.

ACM Prajin said the Airport Rail Link was now serving 1.4 million passengers a month, above its target of 1.2 million.

This latest scheme to extend the line to Rayong and U-Tapao is interesting. Seems it would replace the plans for HSR out to the Eastern Seaboard.

As for the extension to Don Mueang Airport, the north corridor will have separate tracks for the Airport Line, the Red Line, and the regular SRT services?

It's not going to replace, as the extension to Rayong is basically a HSR project, however the extension to Don Mueang is ARL extension and not HSR.

Red line and Airport Rail link will use separate tracks, because it is different projects.
ARL use 1,435m standard gauge, while the Red line use meter gauge.

Purple Line's trial run set for mid-2016
The Nation December 23, 2014 6:08 pm


A train carriage for the Purple Line.

Ch Karnchang, the contractor of the Purple Line electric train, expects the trial run of the Bang Yai-Bang Sue section in the middle of 2016.

It also expects the line to start commercial operation in August 2016.

The construction of Blue Line Extension from Sanam Chai to Tha Phra is now 60 per cent complete, with construction of the first underground tunnel crossing Chao Phraya River now finished and the second tunnel excavation started and scheduled to be completed in 2016.

The first train manufactured by J-TREC (Japan Transport Engineering Co) will be delivered to Thailand in the end of 2015 for installation and test run, it said.

Meanwhile, the Green Line (Bearing -Samut Prakan) is now 50 per cent complete, Ch Karnchang said.
