Even though Maengmum common tickets have not been implemented Yet, those who take Phasee Charoen boat service are now required to purchase rabbit cards from BTS SKytrain to pay for 15 Baht flat rate ticket - with exception to monks, nuns, senior citizens with the age of 60 or older, the handicapped,primary school students in uniforms up to Grade 6 - this is the way to deal with cashless payments of tickets for sure

The Light Blue Line is redundant as the BMA has rerouted the Phase II Grey Line extension (now called Light Grey Line). As can be seen on the map, the Light Blue Mono Rail stations are incorporated i.e. Chong Nongsi , Suan Phlu and Lumpini, where riders can change trains to the Blue Line to reach Phetchaburi and Makkasan (formerly Light Blue Monorail stations). They will also be able to change trains at the Thai Cultural Centre on the Blue Line to the Orange Line to reach Pracha Songkro and Din Daeng (formerly Light Blue Line Stations). The Light Grey Line will replace the BRT from Chong Nongsi and beyond

Red line commuter station from Bangsue Central to Rangsit - Bangsue Central is the biggest one (300000 sq m of space) since it must be able to deal with red line commuter, intercity trains, Airport link extension and high speed train - and Donmueang is the second biggest (25000 sq m of space) while Lak Hok is for commuter (7800sq m.) and Rangsit is the third largest (21000 sq. m.) for commuter and intercity - while Chatuchak, Samian Naree, Bangkhen, Thung Songhong, Laksi, Karn Keha are for commuter so it has just 7200 sq. m. space. Red line commuter will be opened in 2020 though with the cost overrun from 59,888 Million Baht to 93,950 Million Baht - red line commuter expect to carry 306,608 passengers a day

Test for the handicapped facilities on Purple line at Bang Son, Nonthaburi 1, and Bang Ploo - with the following comments to force MRTA and contractors to correct the following shortcomings

1. *More officers to help the handicapped and senior citizens in all gates of every station
2. elevators, escalators, and stairways must have touchable symbols according to international standards to help those who cannot see.
3. erecting the roofs at the stairways, elevators, escalators to protects passengers from rain and sun rays
4. speed up the construction of park and rides with elevators for the handicapped at Nonthaburi 1 station
5. telling the Governor and Mayors in Nonthaburi provinces to improve the footpaths with the ramps for those who need wheelchairs to enter into the Purple line MRT stations - all to be done in Jan 2017
6. telling BMA city hall to improve the footpaths with the ramps for those who need wheelchairs to enter into the Purple line MRT stations at Tao Poon, Bang Son and Wong Sawang

Furthermore, the head of NGOs who are dealing with the facilitation for the mass including handicapped and senior citizens have commented that even though MRTA has managed to install the facilities for the handicapped and senior citizens, there are still some serious shortcomings including
1. the existing elevators for those who need wheelchairs are not adequate - 2 elevators per stations are not enough - at least 4 elevators would be better
2. Worse, there are elevators on one side of the road but not on the other side which have escalators instead - not good for those who need wheelchairs - those who need wheelchairs demand installation of elevators in all sides of the roads without any question
3. MoT should deal with the installation of elevators to fulfill the Supreme Court ruling - as now BMA still has a hard time to install the additional elevators

Second-stage expansion of Suvarnabhumi takes off

The second-phase expansion of Suvarnabhumi airport was launched in a ceremony at the site by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Wednesday, with construction to begin in February. The cabinet on Aug 24 approved the plan with a budget of 62.5 billion baht.

Once completed in 2019, the main gateway to Thailand will be able to handle 60 million passengers a year, an increase from 45 million at present, Airports of Thailand (AoT) president Nitinai Sirismatthakarn said at the ceremony.

The work includes a new concourse and facilities located to the south, including a tunnel to link the new structure with the existing terminal.

The project includes an automated people mover system. Construction could begin in February next year.

Suvarnabhumi was opened for limited operations in 2006, replacing Don Mueang as the main airport for Thailand. Increasing congestion at the airport has led to approval of a plan to expand the facilities. A second stage was included in the original proposal.

the need for PPP for the future mass transit expansion
1. Airport link expansion to Bangsue Central and Donmueang due to the failure of SRT Union men to run Airport link properly so more private sectors are in need
2. Bangna - Suvannabhum LRT by BMA-KT with a branch line to Hua Chiaw University or so - likely to ask BTS to do this job
3. BMA2 city hall - Rang Nam road - Yothee road with interchange at Victory Monument - better wait until BMA has opened BMA city hall around 2017 to raise this issue
4. Pink Monorail of MRTA
5. Yellow Monorail of MRTA
6. Blue ring extension of MRTA
7. Purple line extension of MRTA
8. Orange line MRT

2 trillion baht = 57.42 billion USD

Govt pushes B2tr capital plan
16 Sep 2016 at 04:00 | WRITER: CHATRUDEE THEPARAT

The government will seek to approve major projects under its 2-trillion-baht infrastructure expenditure scheme before its term expires next year, Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak said yesterday.

Mr Somkid said the next government then would have to press on with these projects till their completion, which are mostly road and rail projects that link with those in neighbouring countries.

The cabinet has already approved several dual track rail projects such as the Jira Junction-Khon Kaen, the mass transit projects known as the Orange Line, the Yellow Line, the Pink Line and the Red Line, while other projects will soon be approved, he said.

Mr Somkid said three motorways -- Pattaya-Map Ta Phut, Bang Yai-Kanchanaburi and Bang Pa-In Nakhon Ratchasima -- have been approved by the cabinet and three more will be approved by the year-end.

Water transport projects, port and high-speed rail plans will also be approved this year and next year.

He said the first section of the Bangkok-Nakhon Ratchasima Thai-Chinese rail link is expected to be approved this year and the next step will be to develop a link to railway services in Laos.

Japan also has shown an intention to conduct feasibility studies for the high-speed Bangkok-Padang Besar rail project and for the East West corridor's Mae Sot-Mukdahan rail project, said Mr Somkid.

He said the government will also kick off development of a new industrial zone in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), which will be a foundation of Thailand's development in the next 30 years.

The cabinet soon will approve the EEC draft law and a plan to develop infrastructure, including U-tapao airport, sea ports and the Bangkok-Rayong high-speed rail.

Under the government's so-called Thailand 4.0 plan, new growth engines include agriculture, health, the digital and creative economy, and smart devices. Mr Somkid said Thailand also needs to reform education, narrow the income gap and help low income earners.

He said economic growth was 2.8% in 2015. It was 3.2% in the first quarter, and 3.5% in the second quarter. However, low income earners and the middle class have yet to benefit from economic growth.
