The blue ring line is still under construction, however the section between Bang Sue and Tao Poon is being sped up. They are still setting up signaling and laying rail tracks, and they are trying to make it in time before the purple line officially opens on August 12, 2016. However it might be delayed by some months, in that case there will be a free shuttle bus between purple line Tao Poon station and blue line Bang Sue station. The distance is about 1 km.


Also note that Thai common ticket Mangmoon (Spider) will be ready in August. In time for the purple line.

Quote:
Thai common ticket will begin testing February 2016, and will roll out to the public in August 2016.
The common ticket can be used with BTS, MRT, ARL and BRT as well as buses, chao phraya river boats, motorways, expressways and convenience stores.

Green light for Bt100-bn Thailand Future Fund
Erich Parpart
The Nation December 16, 2015 1:00 am

The Cabinet yesterday approved the launch of the country’s first infrastructure fund, dubbed the Thailand Future Fund, with Bt100 billion in initial capital to help ease the government’s financial burden from the expected investment on infrastructure next year.

"If we rely solely on the government budget to fund the infrastructure needs, then you can believe that only a few projects can be done.

"The government wants these infrastructure projects to happen, as they will greatly improve the country's competitiveness," Finance Minister Apisak Tantivorawong said.

The Bt2.72-trillion fiscal 2016 budget is projected to run a Bt390-billion deficit, as government revenue is projected at Bt2.33 trillion. The investment budget was set at Bt543.63 billion. "The idea is to design a fund to raise capital from the private sector, which has long-term funding such as from the insurance group and retirement funds.

"But we are not blocking out the opportunity for the general public to invest in the fund," he said.

The Transport Ministry estimated last month that about Bt130 billion-Bt140 billion of the Bt1.80 trillion for its 2015-20 investment plan would enter the economic system next year.

The Finance Ministry will inject Bt10 billion into the fund.

Part of the capital will be allocated from the Vayupak Fund to provide income for the fund, as some of the projects that will be included in the infrastructure fund are greenfield projects requiring three to five years to start generating revenue.

The Thailand Future Fund will be given a minimum return on investment target, but the ministry needs more time to discuss a suitable rate.

The minimum return for the Vayupak Fund was set at 3 per cent.

Peerapong Jirasevijinda, managing director and chief investment officer for fund management at BBL Asset Management, told The Nation last month that about 5-9 per cent is required to attract foreign investors, as there are similar funds in other countries in the Asean region.

Pimonwan Mahujchariyawong, deputy managing director of Kasikorn Research Centre, said the infrastructure fund will be able to attract investors during this period of low global interest rates and high volatility within risky assets, as the transport projects are expected to yield a high return in the long run.

"The budget of Bt100 billion should be enough for the capital needed next year, given the delay and the gradual progress of the projects," she said.

Work in progress on the Dark Red Line
(the corridor with the old pillars between the elevated highway and the Dark Red Line will eventually be used for the Airport Link extension and high speed rail)

About those BMA Light Rail lines (the Gold Line, and that unknown 15.3-km line, whose name is colored dark green on the list), will those lines be at-grade "supertrams" (like the light rail systems in major U.S. cities), or will they be grade-separated like all of Bangkok's other urban rail lines? I doubt the Gold Line is going to be a tram since it's supposed to connect to the dark green and purple lines.

BMA Gold line Light Rail will be elevated and use rubber tyres similar to Singapore's Light Rail Transit, since it's just 2.7km long.

For BMA Light Rail, this line is still waiting for EIA approval and details aren't out yet, but the picture suggest at-grade tram?
I think it will end up being elevated though.
