After swiping the card for entry into any BTS stations, one should exit within 120 min.

In June, a common ticketing system (Mangmoon) will be in service, so we should be able to stay in the paid area for 2 hours in all systems (BTS, MRT, ARL, SRT).

MRT Blue Line West Extension | 8 km

The extension will be given to the Cabinet next month, if approved construction can then begin in September.

Blue Line extension, freeway pends cabinet approval
26 Mar 2017 at 04:00 WRITER: AMORNRAT MAHITTHIROOK


Quote:
The Transport Ministry is preparing to seek approval from the cabinet for the Blue Line extension connecting Bang Khae and Phutthamonthon Sai 4 and the Rama III Road-Dao Khanong-Western Outer Ring Road Expressway worth more than 50 billion baht in total.

Peraphon Thawornsupacharoen, deputy permanent secretary for transport, said the eight kilometre Blue Line electric railway extension, valued at 21.1 billion baht, and the 11km expressway, worth 31.2 million baht, would be tabled in the cabinet meeting for approval next month.

He was speaking on Friday after a meeting on this year's urgent transportation infrastructure action plan.

Mr Peraphon said the rail project was now under the consideration of the National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB). It would be forwarded to the cabinet along with the expressway project for approval.

If the cabinet green-lighted both infrastructure projects next month, the bidding for both would be open in June with contracts signed in August. The construction of both would start this September.

MRT Pink line | 34.5 km & MRT Yellow line | 30.4 km

Both monorails will have their construction contract signed next month



Quote:
Mr Peraphon said the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand has also confirmed the agency would next month sign contracts with private operators on two electric rail routes: the 34.5km Pink Line from Khae Rai to Min Buri, costing 56.6 billion baht, and the 30.4km Yellow Line from Lat Phrao to Samrong, worth 54.6 billion baht.

A draft of the first contract is nearly complete. When complete, Thai and Chinese authorities will draft the second contract concerning hiring project consultants.

By "signing contracts" does that mean just approving the BTS-led consortium for Pink & Yellow? What role are Chinese authorities playing?

Concession contract. 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.

When the contract is signed, they can then get ready for construction.


I'm not sure what role the Chinese authorities are playing though.

BTS Samrong Station Opens in Bangkok
Quote:
Starting today the BTS Sukhumvit line has a new terminal station.



Samrong is the first station of a 12.8 km Sukhumvit Line South Extension, planned to open next year.

For the first month, traveling from Bearing to Samrong will be free of charge.

Samrong will also be an interchange station with the MRT Yellow Line (30.4 km of length, opening in 2020), that will cover the north-eastern side of Bangkok.

As always, we’ve updated both our Online Bangkok Metro Map and our Bangkok Metro App (pending release), available on the App Store.

Note: I'm the author of the map/app/article, any feedback is more than welcome

The BTS lines are being extended. But the rolling stocks are still in 4-car.
Will there any plan to expand to 6-car train ?

Once extension from Mochit to Khoo khot and Samrong to Pak Nam have been opened for traffic => 2020 - 2021

BEM for sure for a god reason - and it is a foolish movement to make different operator on the different section of Blue ring as advocated by politicians and their lackeys

Sorry, not talking about operator. I mean from whom are they going to buy the rolling stock, signalling, SCADA, passenger information systems, etc.

BEM - clear and simple but which supplier (Siemens or so) is another matter.

Inside info: BTS have already ordered more 4-car trains for the extended Green Lines to be delivered as follows: 22 x 4 Car trains to be delivered 2018/2019 and 24 x 4 car trains in 2020/21 split between Siemens and the Chinese manufacturers. There are no 6 car trains as yet planned. The extra 4-car trains that will be added to the fleet allows BTS to run at a 75 second intervals at peak hours to accommodate more passengers. The important thing is shorter intervals between trains, not 6 car trains running at longer intervals so that the platform becomes overcrowded. Extra cars will be inserted in the future depending on passenger numbers. As yet, BTS are considering adding one extra car, making a 5-car set once the passenger numbers increase further, in the same way as they added only one-car to their previous 3-car sets. The maximum number of cars that can be accommodated is 6.

I would have said it was only between Siemens and the Chinese trains as used on the BTS. However, I noticed on the latest designs that they have allowed for Purple line trains to enter the Blue Line system at Tao Poon, so perhaps Japanese as well.
