Ah ok, sorry. From watching the videos (I never used the Airport Link) I had the impression there were two tracks specifically dedicated to each line throughout, when in fact it's not ...

At Makkasan and Suvarnabhumi, both lines have their own tracks and platforms. At Hua Mak the express line can bypass the city line via a passing loop.

For the Sanam Chai station the blue line extension, are they planning to put canopies at the station entrances? Given the heavy rain during the rainy season in Bangkok it would be unusual not to have some protection at the exits.

For Sanam Chai station, they will be no canopies at the entrance in front of the Museum of Siam. They are trying not to obstruct the view to the Museum.

2018-2019, however when a station is completed, they will then be open to the public, instead of waiting for the whole line to finish.

Bangkok Mass Transit says it is set to purchase new trains to cater to the spike in demand for public transport. CEO Surapong Laoha-Unya says the agency is set to splash out up to THB10 billion on up to 43 complete trains for use on the Skytrain network.

He continued by saying the new trains would be utilised on existing routes to increase service frequencies as well as on two new planned routes. The CEO said the agency still had not decided whether to buy all the trains at once or in stages.

Mr Laoha-Unya added that eight firms had said they would be bidding to supply the trains and these included Siemens and China CNR. He finished off by saying that the final decision on the bid would be made in the first months of 2016.

Current Thai prime-minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has pledged to improve the nation’s transport infrastructure and a part of the master-plan is to lay down 300kms of electric-train track in Bangkok. At present three different bodies operate the Skytrain, the Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link and the MRT underground.

ARL to increase service with more trains
7 Oct 2015 | 18:21



BANGKOK, 7 October 2015 (NNT) – The Ministry of Transport has appointed the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) to proceed the purchase of more trains for the Airport Rail Link (ARL) service to accommodate more passengers.

The Minister of Transport Arkhom Termpittayapaisith has said after observing the operation of the ARL train service, connecting Suvarnabhumi Airport to central Bangkok run by SRT Electric Train Company (STRET), that the average number of passengers has reached 60,000 persons per day, exceeding the current operational capacity.

He said that additional trains will be required to enhance passenger service capacity, while the ARL now can only operate seven out of the total nine trains, as two are under maintenance until April 2016.

The new set of trains awaiting procurement consists of seven train sets with a total of 28 carriages. The new trains will help double the capacity, allowing service capacity to reach up to 120,000 passengers per day.

On this matter, the SRT governor Wuthichart Kalyanamitra has revealed that the SRT is now finalizing train specifications before proposing the details to the Public Debt Management Office by the end of this month.

He added that this procurement deal is expected to be finalized in December, and the new trains will be scheduled for delivery at early 2018, with a total budget of 4.8 billion baht, 4.4 billion of which is the price of the train and the remaining 400 million will be used on spare parts.

He has also stressed that there train specification lobbying, favoring any particular manufacturer, is non-existent. The proposed price of the new train sets is confirmed to be cheaper than the previous purchase.

The new trains of skytrain system still be 4-car-train. Right?

Yes, it will still be 4-car trains. The same with the new Airport Rail Link trains.

According to BTS Group, the current capacity is 20,000 PPHPD(passengers per hour per direction). The capacity has already been reached (20,000 x 18 hours x2 directions = 720,000 passengers/day). They cannot therefore continue to run 4 car trains on the Sukhumvit line and must run 6 car trains giving a maximum capacity of 50,000 PPHPD with a 2 minute headway. Given the number of trains/carriages they propose to purchase, they surely will run 6 car trains at least during the rush hours. I believe they will continue to run 4 car trains on the Silom line, with increased frequency at peak hours and 6 car trains on the Sukhumvit line. The delivery period for the new trains/carriages is around two years. Meanwhile, the crush at peak hours is going to get much worse, as the number of passengers/day, based on current trends, is likely to reach 900,000/day in the next two years.
