Forming a consortium due to the fact that it is another high risk venture - need more partner to protect themselves as they have learnt the hard lesson from Purple Line MRT with a rife of land speculation while failing to make 1-km extension to allow smooth connection into account due to political football from different agency along with political animosity.

Well, 2 companies which already have heavy rail mass transit line in the hand is a real advantage since Pink monorail and yellow monorail is to function as feeder system for their heavy rail.

Gold Line's second phase to be finalised
9 Nov 2016 at 08:53 WRITER: AMORNRAT MAHITTHIROOK



City Hall has been urged to finalise designs for development of the Gold Line monorail's second phase by the middle of next year as parts of its structure needs to be integrated with the underground extension of the Purple Line.

Deputy permanent secretary for transport Peraphon Thawornsupacharoen said the call was made by the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA), which must reinforce the structural strength of the Purple Line's underground tunnel, as it has to be designed to sustain the foundation of the elevated Gold Line project.

The two lines will overlap for 400 metres, Mr Peraphon said.

He was speaking after he held talks yesterday with Suthon Anakul, deputy director of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA)'s Traffic and Transportation Department, in addition to representatives from other agencies to follow up on the 2.68km Gold Line project worth 3.84 billion baht.

The MRTA is prepared to forward the Purple Line extension project to the cabinet for approval this month, he said.

The second-phase of the Gold Line project will start from Taksin Hospital to Wat Anongkaram Worawiharn in Klong San district, stretching about 1km. The section will have two stations.

It will expand from the Gold Line's first-phase of development between BTS Krung Thonburi station and Taksin Hospital. This initial 1.7km section will cover three stations.

Mr Peraphon said that the BMA was also asked to propose the Gold Line project to the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning (OTP), which will incorporate the scheme into the second-phase of its master plan for mass transit railway development in Bangkok and its surrounding provinces.

The Gold Line is a feeder project to transport commuters to the main railway systems, he said.

The BMA was also asked to use the same fare structure of the key rail systems along with a common ticketing system.

According to Mr Peraphon, the Gold Line will be linked to the Red Line's Hua Lamphong-Mahachai extension at Klong San station and to the Purple Line's Tao Pun-Rat Burana extension at the Memorial Bridge station. The BMA, he said, was also asked to design and develop the transit points at the stations.

Mr Suthon said the Gold Line's Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is now underway and is expected to be completed next month, adding that construction of the Gold Line's first section is expected to begin early next year and be completed within 16 months.

Contract 2: Section from Samian Naree to Rangsit by ITD (Italian Thai Development PCL) at 21,235,400,000 Baht - 60% done - got 100 day extension due to the problem slum dweller near Lak Hok station (gateway to Mueang Ek village and Rangsit University)
Contract 3: electrification, electromechanics and EMU by MHSC [MITSUBISHI Heavy Industrial Ltd, Hitachi and Sumitomo Corporation] with the price tag of 32,399 Million Baht- 10% done

MRTA also planning the new mass transit line (LRT - Monorial) for Chiang Mai, Phuket, Nakhon Ratchasima, Chonburi (more likely Pataya) and Songkla (more likely Hatyai) - first on the line is Phuket LRT - using PPP Scheme to allow private sector to run the system with investment of 24 billion Baht - Hope that the details for the LRT and Monorail in major city are done in 2017

It will take a while to get there though. Expecting at least 400km by 2020 ending phase I. Hopefully phase II lines can begin construction in 2018.

By the time it gets built it probably won't. Top 20 more likely. Also given the somewhat shaky track record of rail mass transit planning/construction in Bangkok over the past two decades I wouldn't bet on getting things done without considerable delays.

You are most likely right there though outside South Asia and the PRC I can't see any other regions building maasive metros like the one proposed for Bangkok.

At the current rates of construction I expect six of the ten longest metros to be in China by the year 2020 and Delhi to move into the top ten.

That's what I mean. China and few others (existing long systems which were around for a while) will occupy the top 10 spots by the end of the decade.
