Even though the 80 km new railway line line from Ubon [Bung Wai] to Chong Mek checkpoint has better prospect due to AEC, but Denchai - Chiang Rai - Chiang Khong may be cancelled as Big Jin wants the line from Chiang Mai to Chiang Khong via Chiang Rai with the possibility to pass Phayao as Denchai - Chiang Rai - Chiang Khong does not attract Chinese investors along with those Chiang Mai people who keep pressing the demands for Chiang Mai - Chiang Rai - Chiang Khong route at the expense of those in Phrae province.

On the issue of double tracking from Denchai to Chiang Mai - during the meeting at Aiyaret room, Nakhon Phrae Tower Hotel on 29 April 2015:

There are 3 choices for double tracking from Denchai to Chiang Mai
1. Following the existing route with max speed at 90 kph - 217 km
2. Following much of existing route with land exappropriation for curve widening and strength track with max speed at 120 kph - 206 km
3. Almost the new route with heavy land exappropriation to allow the max speed at 160 kph - 170 km

this double tracking will meet the Lopburi - Paknam Pho - Denchai double tracking

There will be second meeting double tracking from Denchai to Chiang Mai - at Imperial Ballroom, the Empress Hotel in Chiang Mai city on 30 April 2015

Big Jin has come up after Chinese government has rejected the line from Bangsue Central to Chiang Mai as it has no direct connection to the 4th Friendship Bridge in Chiang Khong via Chiang Rai [now, the business hub for Chinese investor].

the 326 km from Denchai to Chiang Khong consisted of the following sections
1. Section in Prae [77.20 km] with 6 station including Denchai [New building], Soong Men, Phrae, Mae Khammee, Nong Siaw and Song
2. Section in Lampang [52.40 km] with 3 stations including Mae Teeb - Ngao and Pong Tao
3. section in Phayao [54.10 km] with 6 stations including Phayao university. Thok Kwak, Phayao, Dong Jenm Ban Rong and Ban Mai
4. section in Chiang Rai [139.40] with 11 stations including Pa Daen, pa Ngae, Ban Pong Kluea, San Pa Hiang, Chiang Rai, Thung Kor, Wiang Chiang Rung, Pa Sang Junction, Ban Kiang, Sri Don Chai and Chiang Khon

the strip width would be 50 meter for meter gauge

Furthermore, OTP is going to deal with the double tracking from Denchai to Chiang mai to increase track capacity that pass 4 provinces [Phra, Lampang, Lamphun, Chiang Mai], 10 district and 30 communes - which can be done byeither

1. sticking with the same old 217 km route
2. sticking much the same route but with curve correction to shorten to 206 km
3. almost the new route to Lampang before following the same highspeed route to Chiang Mai - 170 km

There will be 27 stations along this double track
1. Denchai
2. Pak Pan
3. kaeng Luang
4. Ban Pin
5. Pha khan
6. Pha Khor
7. Pang Puay
8. Mae Jang
9. Mae Moh,
10. Huay Rak Mai
11. Sala Phalad
12. Mae Tha
13. Nong Wua Thao
14. Nakhon Lampang
15. Bo Haew
16. Hang Chat
17. Pang Muang
18. Huay Rian
19. Mae Tan Noy
20. Khun tan
21. Tha Chompoo
22. Sala Mae Tha
23. Nong Lom
24. Lamphun
25. Pa Sao
26. Saraphee
27. Chiang Mai

Note: I thought that the line would go from Chiang Mai to Phayao before following the same route to Chiang Khong via Chiang Rai - at least it is going to connect with Mueang district of Chiang Mai and Phayao in addition to Chiang Rai
Note 2: There is a political motivation to come up with the route from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai. At least, this is a measure to quell those angry voices of UDD men as well as other local people in Chiang Mai (UDD hotbed) to be more reconcile with Junta.
Note 3: This measure is also to attract more investment from either China or Japan

During the second meeting double tracking from Denchai to Chiang Mai - at Imperial Ballroom, the Empress Hotel in Chiang Mai city on 30 April 2015, many Chiang Mai and Lamphun people said the project is really good for them without doubts.

However, those local people of Chiang Mai and Lamphun have complained that OTP - SRT and consultant company have FAILED to do the PR job about this project - they should tell those local people to come to make their opinions with long time ago instead of the meeting with such a short notice so there will be much more local people to come to have a meeting to make their voice heard.

The most serious bone of contention of all is the issue of land exappropriation if they want 160 kph max speed version with much shorter route (170 km) that the existing route of 217 km. SRT, OTP and consultants companies have FAILED to send their men to make a field survey on the proposed track - especially the 3rd choice with the max speed at 160 kph and the length of 170 km - worse, the section in question also passes through several national parks, wildlife sanctuary and reserved forests which will make this route flunk the EIA unless the consultant companies have address this issue accordingly. Sending just the legal officers from SRT is no longer enough as local people press the great demands for serious survey and environmental impact assessment (EIA). EIA also include the noise issue in urban areas around major stations.

Another bone of contention is the 8 level crossings between Chiang Mai terminus to Lamphun (22 km) - need to deal accordingly.

There are 3 choices for double tracking from Denchai to Chiang Mai
1. Following the existing route with max speed at 90 kph - 217 km
2. Following much of existing route with land exappropriation for curve widening and strength track with max speed at 120 kph - 206 km
3. Almost the new route with heavy land exappropriation to allow the max speed at 160 kph - 170 km

this double tracking will meet the Lopburi - Paknam Pho - Denchai double tracking - at the time being, ONLY 32% of existing railway lines of 4000 km are double track.

After 329 km Ipoh - Padang Besar electrified double tracking is almost done, it has pressured MoT and OTP to come up with 48 km Hatyai - Padang besar electrified double tracking with the following schedules:
1. Study to be done in December 2015
2. Survey and Design to come up with EIA in 2016
3. Construction Started in 2017 and done in 2019

the max speed is 160 kph with average speed of 110 kph due to the stops en route while cargo trains can run at 90 kph

This is the first step for massive 4000 km electrified double tracking other than red line commuter to phase out Diesel electric locos and DMU in 2032.

Cabinet approves Chira-Khon Kaen railway project
Erich Parpart
The Nation May 8, 2015 1:00 am

The Cabinet yesterday approved the 1-metre-gauge dual-track rail route from Chira junction in Nakhon Ratchasima to Khon Kaen, which is part of the Transport Ministry's infrastructure development scheme that kicks off this year.

"The Cabinet has approved the construction of the Chira-Khon Kaen rail route and instructed the ministry to commence with the investment plan while following up with the route from Map Kabao [in Saraburi province] to Chira, which is next in line" for approval, Transport Minister Prajin Juntong said.

The ministry plans to allocate Bt1.9 trillion over eight years to fund the infrastructure projects.

The highlights are the two high-speed dual-track railway projects worth Bt741 billion and six standard-gauge dual-track rail projects covering 887 kilometres worth Bt127 billion.

The 187km stretch approved yesterday is expected to cost Bt26 billion to build. Construction is expected to commence midyear, with operations starting by 2018.

The Chira-Khon Kaen route passed its environment impact assessment last year but the Map Kabao-Chira EIA has yet to gain approval. A Government House source said the EIA was expected to clear before the next Cabinet meeting.

The construction of all six standard-gauge dual-track rail routes, including the one approved yesterday, is expected to cost Bt117.4 billion. The other five routes are Prachuap Khiri Khan-Chumphon (167km), Nakhon Pathom-Hua Hin (165km), Map Kabao-Chira (132km), Lop Buri-Pak Nam Pho (148km) and Hua Hin-Prachuap Khiri Khan (90km).

The source also said the Cabinet discussed the possibility of extending a Bt4.5-billion official development assistance (ODA) loan to Myanmar to fund the construction of the 138km two-lane road between the Dawei Special Economic Zone in Myanmar's Tanintharyi region and Phunumron checkpoint in Thailand's Kanchanaburi province.

The discussion focused on a suitable interest rate.

The most likely outcome is to provide a three-year ODA loan with a zero-per-cent interest rate instead of the 1-2 per cent proposed earlier in exchange for the Thai side being able to build a storage tank for liquefied natural gas and a coal-fired power plant in Myanmar.

Myanmar has 30 years to pay the loan back. The ODA will be given in three tranches with a Bt1.5-billion budget each year, the source said.

Maj-General Sunsern Kaewkumnerd Sansern Kaewkamnerd, deputy government spokesman, said the law to govern the setting up of special economic zones in the border areas of Thailand would probably take the form of an executive decree rather than an act, whose approval process takes much longer.

The deadline for the ruling junta's political road map is approaching and the prime minister along with the Cabinet believes that this is an urgent economic measure that needs to be in place within this government's term, he said.

5 Choices for the Thai - Japan railway routes from Ban Phu Namron checkpoint to Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port - which one is the best deal as Japanese investors want to invest in Dawei deep sea port

1. 342 km Ban Phu Namron checkpoint - Nong Pladuk Junction - Bangsue Junction - Chachoengsao Junction - Laem Chabang deep sea port line which is following the existing route with the exception for
1.1 Phu Namron checkpoint - Tha Kilen station - 36 km - new route to Border
1.2. Wang Yen station - Tha Ruea Noy station - 29 km - new bypass route to avoid sensitive area in downtown Kanchanaburi

The crux is the section that passed into BKK definitely the construction headaches so this choice has to be rejected.

2. 401 km Ban Phu Namron checkpoint - Nong Pladuk Junction - Nong Fak station (a station on Suphanburi line near a mountain of garbage) - Ongkharak station (klong 19 Bypass) - Chachoengsao Junction - Laem Chabang deep sea port line
Need the land exappropriation from Nong Fak station (a station on Suphanburi line near a mountain of garbage) to Ongkharak station (klong 19 Bypass) via Klong Phutsa station of the Northern line along with the chord line at Thanon Songphon (Ban Pong 2) to go to Suphanburi line
without going to Nong Pladuk junction before following Klong 19 Bypass and Aranyaprathet line to Chachoengsao and then following Sattahip line to Sriracha ranch line to Laem Chabang

3. 447 km Ban Phu Namron checkpoint - Nong Pladuk Junction - Nong Phak Chee station (a station on Suphanburi line) - Map Phrachan station - Chachoengsao Junction - Laem Chabang deep sea port line
Need the land exappropriation from Nong Fak station (a station on Suphanburi line) all the way to Ban Map P{hracham sta
before following the Northern line toi Ban Phachi before following Khorat line to Kaeng Khoi and heading to Kpong 19 bypass to Chachoengsao and passingg
Sattahip line to Laem Chabang - even though the there is less land exappropriation than choice 2 but this route is longest route.


4. The best deal - 332 km Ban Phu Namron checkpoint - Nong Pladuk Junction - Tha Chalaeb station - Phan Thong station - Laem Chabang deep sea port line

Ban Phu Namron checkpoint to Tha Kilen station (dropping point to Mueang Sing stone castle) until it has reached Wang Yen station and then the new route from Wang Yen to Tha Ruea Noy station - to bypass Kanchanaburi city
and then following the existing Nam Tok line to Nong Pladuk and going all the way to Tha Chalaeb station and then the new route from Tha Chalaeb station all the way to the northern end of Phan Thong station -
with 2 giant bridges across the mouth of Chao Phraya river and Bang Pakong river while passing Nakhon Chaisri district, Sam Phran district of Nakhon Pathom, Krathum Baen and Mueang district of Samut Sakhon,
Bang Khun Thian district of BKK, Phra Samut Chedi and Mueang district, Bang Plee and Bang Bo district of Samut Prakarn along with Bang Pakong district of Chachoengsao and Phanthong district of
Chonburi before following the existing Sattahip line from Phan Thong all the way to Laem Chabang Deep Sea port

Here is the breakdown for 7 sections of this line
4.1. Phu Namron checkpoint - Tha Kilen station - 36 km - new route to Border
4.2. Tha Kilen station - Wang Yen station - 23 km
4.3. Wang Yen station - Tha Ruea Noy station - 29 km - new bypass route for Kanchanaburi
4.4. Tha Ruea Noy station - Nong Pladuk Junction - 30 km
4.5. Nong Pladuk Junction - Tha Chalaeb station - 27 km

4.6. Tha Chalaeb station - Phan Thong station - 118.5 km - the toughest section of all due to 2 giant bridges and across the mouth of Chao Phraya river and Bang Pakong river while while passing Nakhon Chaisri district, Sam Phran district of Nakhon Pathom, Krathum Baen and Mueang district of Samut Sakhon, Bang Khun Thian district of BKK, Phra Samut Chedi and Mueang district, Bang Plee and Bang Bo district of Samut Prakarn along with Bang Pakong district of Chachoengsao and Phanthong district of Chonburi

4.7. Phan Thong station - Laem Chabang deep sea port station - 58.5 km

the shortest route without passing through Bangkok city center while allowing the connection of Mahachai line with the rest of Thai railway at Thung see thong station -
Need investment of 98000 Million Baht for the distance of 322 km along with 70000 million Baht investment for the route from Phu namron checkpoint station all the way to Dawei deep sea port

5. 404 km Ban Phu Namron checkpoint - Nong Pladuk Junction - Nakhon Chaisri station - Ongkharak station (klong 19 Bypass) - Chachoengsao Junction - Laem Chabang deep sea port line

Such the enormous investment require full commitment on the project in both Thai side and Burmese side as it is the land bridge line

Let's hope that the line will be branch from Phan Thong or Chachoengsao all the way to Aranyaprathet before paying 125 million Dollars for rehabilitating the northern section from Poipet all the way to Phnom Penh and then constructing the new 257 km line from Phnom Penh to Vietnamese border at Snoul with the price tag of 33 billion Baht (1 billion US Dollar)

After the first 10 CSR loco has been delivered, SRT has to dust off the project to construct the new locomotive depot to handle these new iron horses from China at Sri Racha junction and Ladkrabang ICD as well as the new railway factory at Kaeng Khoi to handle the maintenance of these new locos with aircon in the cockpits along with computer control system along with the new 115 aircon carriages with power car in each set which is to be delivered in April 2016 to be commissioned in July 2016

Furthermore, there will be a leasing of the new locomotives by Siam Cement, TPI Polene cement and Thai Bev to carry the cargo before fully transferred to SRT

Furthermore, SRT has to set up the new business unit to handle red line commuter as SRT has to allow the concession of Airport Link to private firms and review with the plan for new ICDs and CYs - including the new ICD in Ongkharak, ICD 2 lad krabang and Thub Yao (definitely at km 35 Eastern line which also has railway apartments which have not been done yet)

For the 26.007 billion Baht double tracking, it will be domestic loan and they have to learn not to run afoul with Auditing General for the TOR of bidding

Seems to me that the second choice for double tracking from Denchai to Chiang Mai with max speed of 120 kph is the choice local people of Chiang Mai and Phrae prefer as first choice with the max speed of 90 kph is too slow while the 3rd choice with the max speed of 160 kph require major chopping down the forest - they have seen more than enough bald head mountains and hills done by those who have grown maize for CP All.

those 300 local people in Ban Nong Waeng Nang (Mahasarakham northern suburb) and real estate owners asking SRT and consultant company to move the line form Ban Phai to Nakhon Phanom - esp Mahasarakham station out of their communities - by claiming the noise pollution - flood by construction blocking of the canals to the point that the developer of Mooban Piam Suk village have seen their customers cancel the house purchasing

For the case of 48 km electrified double tracking of Hatyai - Padang besar, Consultant company said it has become necessary to do the land exappropriation at the following places to widen the curve:

1. km 954.00-955.50 just before reaching Ban Tha Pho, need 20-meter wide strip of land in red which is the land about 9 Rai (3.6 acres)
2. km 966.30-967.42 just before reaching Ban Tha Khoi stop, need 20-meter wide strip of land in red which is the land about 23 Rai (9.2 acres)

Fortunately, the land to be exappropriated in red are those para rubber estate, so it is less troublesome.

BTW, Thung Lung stop in Pha Tong municipal is under consideration to revive as a station with passing loop while the area around Klong Ngae station (which is to be downgraded to stop) need to be elevated track to deal with level crossing.

During the talk with consultant on Hatyai - Padang Besar electrified double tracking project, they said that they will allow KTMB's EMU sets. to extend their service to Hatyai first before SRT purchasing their own EMU sets. In fact, some sections have to be elevated tracks
