Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA) awarded contracts for the construction of MRT Orange Line :

Orange Line construction tipped to kick off early

Amornrat Mahitthirook| Bangkok Post | 10 Dec 2016 at 08:53

Construction of the Orange Line electric rail route, linking the Thailand Cultural Centre and Bangkok's Min Buri district, may start ahead of schedule as giant construction companies have recently won the bidding for the state project.

If no issues surface during further negotiations with the winning bidders, a contract-signing ceremony is expected to be held in February or March next year, Phakkhaphong Sirikantharamat, deputy governor of the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA), which owns the project, said on Friday. Further talks are expected to be concluded in the middle of next month, followed by a meeting of the MRTA board to approve the contracts, he said.

CKST Joint Venture, which comprises CH Karnchang Plc and Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction Plc, and Italian-Thai Development Plc and Unique Engineering and Construction Co have won five contracts for the construction of the 23km rail system -- which combines a subway and an elevated track -- worth more than 80 billion baht. According to the bidding results, CKST Joint Venture won the first and second contracts -- the construction of a section of a subway starting from the Thailand Cultural Centre to Ramkhamhaeng Soi 12 and Hua Mak -- after they tendered the lowest bids.

Italian-Thai Development Plc was awarded another underground section in the third contract, connecting Hua Mak with Khlong Ban Ma on Ramkhamhaeng Road.

Unique Engineering and Construction Co won the fourth contract to build a section of the elevated track stretching from Khlong Ban Ma to Suwinthawong Road in Min Buri. The company also won the fifth contract to install the rail system for the eastern part of the Orange Line. Bidding on a sixth contract opens next week.

MRTA also awarded concession contracts for MRT Pink Line and MRT Yellow Line under public-private partnership program :

Pink and Yellow Monorail Lines Given 2020 Completion

Sasiwan Mokkhasen | Khaosod English | December 7, 2016 12:24 pm

Two more commuter rail extensions in the capital were given ambitious completion dates after the announcement Tuesday of a firm to build them.

BSR Joint Venture – consisting of BTS Group, Sino-Thai Engineering & Construction PCL and Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding PCL – won the 105 billion baht contract to build the Yellow and Pink lines. Together, they will build two suburban monorail lines in a public-private partnership with the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand, or MRTA. “The concession contract is expected to be signed by April 2017”, MRTA Governor Peerayuth Singpattanakul said. Under the contract, the MRTA will be responsible for purchasing the land, while the joint venture builds the stations within three years. After that, they will retain the concession to operate the monorail service for 30 years.

The contract for the Pink Line is worth 53 billion baht. Its 34-kilometer route will run from the Nonthaburi Government Center near Khae Rai junction along Tiwanon and Chaeng Watthana roads to the eastern district of Min Buri. The Yellow Line contract for 52 billion baht covers a 30-kilometer route from the Ratchada-Lat Phrao intersection southeast to the Samrong area of Samut Prakan province. Both routes were among many planned extensions delayed from the original plan now being pushed forward by the military government.

The joint venture beat out the Bangkok Expressway and Metro PCL, which operates the original MRT subway system and the new Purple Line. BSR will need to negotiate specific details of the plan before the project goes to the interim cabinet for approval in March. The MRTA said it chose to build monorail instead of heavy rail lines because it would have a lower environmental impact and cost slightly less.

2. Pink line Monorail (Kae Rai - Minburi) with the distance of 34.5 km at 53,519.50 Million Baht

Now, waiting for cabinet approval in March 2017 with contracts to be signed in April 2017 - and it is going to take 3 years to implement these 2 monorail lines with a promise for extension accorind to the pledge and the request by MRTA

BSR (BTSC 75% - STECON 15% - Ratburi Holding 10%) now so bullish on Yellow Line monorail (30.4 km at 51,810 Million Baht) as well as Pink line monorail (34.5 km at 53,490 Million Baht)
with the serious plan for 2.6 km extension of yellow monorail on Ratchada ring to connect with BTSC at Ratchayothin and 2.8 km branch line to Mueang Thong Thani village with 2 stations to boost the number of passenger of the whole networks to 1.7-2 Million passengers a day (definitely including BTS Skytrain) by taking 2.98 million Bangkokians who live along the routes of pink monorail and yellow monorail into account - along with real estate along with advertising media. At the time being, BSR expect to gain 180000-200000 passengers a day from yellow line monorail and pink line monorail (totally 360000 - 400000 passengers a day) and the existing 700000 passengers a day from BTS

Rabbit cards of BTSC and Maengmum joint ticket system will be applied on pink monorail and yellow monorail

BSR is going to pay 7000 million Baht for the first section of registered capitals while the other can be paid by bank loans

There are 3 monorail system to be chosen after signing the contract - Chongqing, Bombardier or SCOMI

The station's design is grand but the museum is not. I hope they redesign the musuem as color scheme does not much match with the grandness of the underground station

SOME HARD FACTS YOU HAD BETTER BEAR IN YOUR MIND:
1. the Museum Siam in Question is the old Ministry of Commerce dated back to 1920 during the day of King Vajiravudh so it had such a western style as you have seen.
2. What inside Sanam Chai station is from what contracts and archaeologists have found during the construction of Sanam Chai subway station - the remain of the old palace for the prince before it has been demolished to make the way for the Ministry of Commerce Building which has later become Museum Siam.

Hope that this will give you a clarification on this issue. No more argument here.

Well, it is up to Billionaire Khiree to have a final word on which Monorail to be used - at least he has Hongkong connections so he would take a look what is the best deal for him.

The 3 Monorail trains on offer are: Bombardier Innovia Monorail 300, Hitachi "Alweg" (Japanese design which I assume will built by Changchun Railway Vehicles JV with Hitachi in Chongching China rather than in Japan) and SCOMI (Malaysian designed and manufactured)

Why do you think it will be BT over Hitachi?

Chungchun railway vehicles already builds Hitachi Monorail trains and Bombardier light rail trains (but not yet their Monorail Trains) in China in JVs with these bidders. According to my inside sources, Hitachi are favoured as the trains would be built by Chungchun who are an existing BTS train supplier. If Chungchun make a deal to also build the Bombardier Monorail trains in their factory in China, Bombardier would be quite competitive. However, the BTS may decide to buy trains from both companies, as it has and is doing for the Green Line.
