even though Hat yai - Padang Besar electrified double tracking has not been started yet, the construction of Padang Besar 2 station is 90% done - almost done indeed ...
Padang Besar 2 station is to allow those who live on Thai side of Padang Besar to board the train to Hatyai as an alternative route to the familiar red bus and van once the Hatyai - Padang Besar shuttle by Sprinter has become operated

Narathiwat Chamber of Commerce pressing the demands for reviving the cross border train service from Sugei Golok to Kelantan - at least to Pasir Mas junction which is 20 km away from Sugei Golok station as the way to support Narathiwat Special Economic Zone and as a measure to start 219 km Hatyai - Sugei Golok double tracking project to create more jobs for the local people to end any further need to cross the border to work in Kelantan or so as well as to allow the alternative route for cargo trains to go along KTMB eastern coast route.

Is this for real or as "ethereal" as the decade-old Makkasan railyard redevelopment dreams?

Makkasan project will begin mid 2016 next year, the delay was due to extending the leasing period to 99 years, which is now settled and will be signed Jan-Feb 2016.

Another problem was relocating SRT railyard to Kaeng Khoi first, before the area can be used for development. This is also settled now.

Bangkok, Tokyo to sign MoU on joint railway deal
17 Nov 2015 at 07:25
NEWSPAPER SECTION: NEWS | WRITER: AMORNRAT MAHITTHIROOK

Thailand and Japan will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) next week on the joint double-track railway development.

The MoU is part of three railway projects scheduled for discussion during a visit by Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak to Japan between Nov 25 and 28, permanent secretary for transport Chatchai Thipsunawi said yesterday.

The meeting with the Japanese delegation will push ahead the construction of a 547km rail route from Ban Phu Nam Ron at the border in the western province of Kanchanaburi to Sa Kaeo's Aranyaprathet district in the East, which is expected to start early next year.

A new railway will be built to link Kanchanaburi and the planned deep-sea port in Dawei of Myanmar.


Meanwhile, Thailand's existing one-metre gauge will be improved, for transportation from Kanchanaburi to Laem Chabang, the country's major sea port and industrial complex in Chon Buri, and Sa Kaeo, which borders Cambodia, according to the construction plan.

Thailand and Japan will also work on a joint investment plan in the railway operation.

Transport development and improvement of the tracks are key to realising the Kanchanaburi-Sa Kaeo route, said Mr Chatchai.

Mr Somkid, head of the government's economic team, also plans to talk to his Japanese counterpart on possible joint investments in two other railway projects.

They are the 715km Bangkok-Chiang Mai high-speed train and the 718km rail route from Mae Sot border district of Tak to Mukdahan, the border province opposite Laos. Japanese experts are studying both projects.

The study of the Tak-Mukdahan line, also known as the upper East-West corridor, has proceeded to a point where the experts are considering whether the tracks should be one metre or 1.435-metre gauge.

As for the Bangkok-Chiang Mai line, a site survey is being carried out and the project may be approved in June next year, Mr Chatchai said.

Any plans to 'link' properly the railway systems of Thailand & Myanmar (not just to Dawei port) - then all the 'mainland' of south-east asia railways will be finally linked (with the anticipated completion of Phnom Penh-Ho Chi Min link) eh ???

Not yet - let Myanmar do the job at Dawei - Phu Namron first before the revival of the Burmese section of Thai - Burma railway first - after that, SRT will have to find the way to deal with alternative routes across Kwae Yai to avoid the bridge as well as alternative route at Arrow Hill (Lum Sum) to avoid the trestle ... Other than that, Let Myanmar railway deals with the route from Dawei to Myike (mergui) as the way to justify the revival of the plan for rail link between Myike (mergui) to Prachuab Khirikhan - but border clearance along with Border dispute around Singkhon checkpoint must be cleared up first.

4 contractor giants (Italian Thai Development PCL [ITD], Sino-Thai construction PCL [STECON], Unique Engineering PCL [UNIQ], Ch. Karnchang - Chor Thawee [CK-CH]) qualified for 172 km Thanon Jira - Khon Kaen double tracking project with the mean price of 23,622,003,000 Baht - the final results will be declared on 8 December 2015 while TOR for Prachuab Khirikhan - Chumporn double tracking with the mean price of 17,000 Million Baht will be issued in December 2015 to be on bidding by the end of January 2016.

Sadly, Nakhon Pathom - Hua Hin double tracking with the mean price of 20,000 Million Baht, Lopburi - Pak Nampho double tracking with the mean price of 25,000 Million Baht and Map Krabao - Thanon Jira Junction double tracking with the mean price of 29,800 Million Baht still pending for EIA even though EIA for Map Krabao - Thanon Jira Junction double tracking has passed the clearance by the EIA committee but it needs final approval from Environment Bureau ... with a hope that all 3 double tracking projects will be on bidding by the end of June 2016.

Specifications for 172 km Thanon Jira - Khon Kaen double tracking project

1. the new 187 km track on the right (the eastern track in parallel with the existing tracks with the 6 meter space between the new tracks and the existing track - all at grade with the exception at 5.4 km elevated track at the area around Khon Kaen station which has to be built as the new elevated station. 84 new bridges have to be erected

2. Building the new station buildings for 18 railways stations and 7 stops + the new elevated station for Khon Kaen station.

3. Container Yard at Ban Kradone, Bua Yai Junction and Tha Phra

4. the new drainage - pedestrian flyovers and fencing along the tracks
5. the new overpass, Elevated Two Way U-Turn, Box Culvert and elevated tracks at the level crossings.
6. meter gauge track laying
7. new signal and telecom system along the track to replace the good old semaphores with traffic lights
8. the demolition of the slums along the railway tracks + compensations as needed

Note: the issue of slum dwellers along the along the railway tracks will have to get the coordination and cooperation from municipals along the railway tracks as well as National Housing Authority to set up both new home and jobs for slum dwellers.
