BMA inspecting the construction of Paknam extension and found that the section from Bearing to Samrong is 95% done, ready for the opening in December 2016 - so, BMA has asked BTSC to sign 15,500 Million Baht contract to install the signal system for Paknam extension and Khoo Kot extension ...
http://www.posttoday.com/local/bkk/441629
http://www.manager.co.th/UpToDate/Vi...=9590000067580

During the inspection, BMA government said the section from Bearing (Sukhunvit 107) to Samrong (between Klong Samrong bridge and Thepharak intersection) will be opened on 1 March 2017 while the rest will be opened in 2018 as the civil work is 88.74% and platelaying is 89.40% done [the average is 88.85% done] and KT will install the signal and power system

There are 9 stations from Bearing to Pak Nam

1. Samrong (E15) - between Klong Samrong bridge and Thepharak intersection
2. Poochao Samingphrai (E16) - Sukhumvit 115
3. Erawan - Sukhumvit 7 (Samut Prakarn) near elephant shrine
4. Naval Academy (E18) in front of Naval Academy
5. Samut Prakarn (E19) in front of Vocation collage of Samut Prakarn
6. Sri Nakharin (S20) near the bridge across Bang Ping canal
7. Phraek Sa (E21) in front of Samut Prakarn school
8. Sai Luad (S22) at Bang Poo municial Soi 45
9. NHA Housing at Samut Prakarn (E23) at Bang Poo s50

http://www.innnews.co.th/show/711566...B9%89%E0%B8%A1

http://breakingnews.nationtv.tv/home...?newsid=789027

BMA City Council asking BMA Governor about the Need to find the way to bail Bangkok BRT out - after hiring KT to handle the service from Sathon to Rajpruek from 2010 to 2017 an spending 2,009.7 Million Baht - with the average number of passengers at 18000 passengers a day, well below the target of 30000 passengers a day . BRT also got the revenue of just 199.8 Million Baht while the expenditure is 1,237.6 Million Baht - a big loss of 1,037.8 Million Baht or about 200 million Baht a year.

So, it is likely that BRT will have to be converted to Monorail with a connection to the existing Blue line ... Even though it is relatively easy to convert existing BRT stations into monorail stations, how to extend is still an open ended question.

Those merchants from Minburi keep complaining about Orange Line MRT - they should have complained long before that and it seems to me that it is likely the case of mercenaries since the Orange line MRT are NOT in the favor of the political don

Finally BMA has agreed with Junta to run the regular boat service along Phadung Krungkasem city moat but BMA is asking for 345 million Baht budget to purchase or assemble 20 new boats to run along Phadung Krungkasem city moat along with the refurbishing 9 existing piers from Hua Lamphong pier to Thewet Market Pier with the distance of 5 .500 kilometers.

which have become dilapidated after the refurbishment in 2008 and the new pier (Thewet Pier) near Wat Thewarat Kunchorn - Furthermore, BMA is going to build bicycle lanes for better access along with major improvement of surrounding along Phadung Krung Kasem city moat and major dredging to allow regular boat service. This will take another 11 months to be done though.
