Those station are more of the renovated stations rather than built anew

There will be no station between Hang Chat station - Sala Mae Tha station and Sala Mae Tha station - Lamphun station since it has been built on the new route

the old route is for tourists

Since the route from Hang Chat station to Sala Mae Tha station must pass through Doi Khun Tan National Park in Lampang and Doi Pha Mueang Wild Life Sanctuary in Lamphun, the new double track tunnel must be dug:

2. Pha Muang tunnel at Doi Pha Mueang Wild Life Sanctuary with the total distance of 1060 meter

Furthermore, the new 1200 meter via duct across Doi Pha Mueang Wild Life Sanctuary must be erected

Need to speed up 993 km double tracking with the total price tag of 136,931 Million Baht to be done in 2019-2020

Furthermore, the 516 km JV in form of PPP for the electrified double tracking with focus on electrification and electric locomotives with total price tag of 50,000 Million still goes on - this JV is to run cargo trains from Khon Kaen all the way to Laem Chabang Port via Klong 19 bypass

Well, the high speed train to Hua Hin and Rayong still on going

Now, 20 SDA-4 locos for cargo trains with total price tag of 3300 million Baht has been delivered, 115 aircon carriages with a price tag of 4,981.05 Million Bahtto be delivered at Laem Chabang in June 2016 and the first 150 BCFs out of 308 BCFs with a price tag of 770 million baht will be delivered soon ..


However, the pending projects are the bidding for the 50 New Diesel electric loco to replace the good old GEK locos at 6,562.5 Million Baht to get the contract signed in August 2016 while the new 186 Aircon DMUs with the price tag of 13,505 Million Baht still pending for cabinet approvals to be signed in September 2016 and the plan to repower and repair 56 Alsthom locos at 3,360 Million Baht are likely to be changed to the purchase of 30 new Diesel electric loco with the same specification to 50 Diesel electric locos

Still have a bone of contention about the land development on Makkasan factory as SRT need a new factory along with locomotive depot at Kaeng Khoi before moving out

Reason behind the cost overrun from Bangsue Central to Chiang Mai (669 km) from 450,000 Million Baht according to OTP to 546,000 Million Baht according to Japan is that Japanese government making a clear point to construct the separated tracks from Bangsue Central to Ban Phachi (82.8 km)

Therefore, Japanese has given the following suggestion to deal with cost overrun issue:
1. Making the construction into 3 phases which Thailand has agreed with this idea as it has postponed some of unnecessary expenditure.
2. First phase started from Bangsue Central to Lopburi (the Northern limit of SRT commuter) as Japanese government have pointed out that Thailand will become full blown aging society on 2025 so the long travels are no longer necessary ... However, Thailand making a clear point that the first phase of High Speed train system must be about 200-250 km long.
3. the daily number of passenger during the first phase is still in dispute. Japanese said 45000 passengers a day on the first phase according to the study by OTP is too much due to the fact that Thailand will become full blown aging society on 2025 so the long travels are no longer necessary. However, Thailand has insisted this daily number of passenger at 45000 passengers a day due to the increasing internal migration of those new generations by High sped train and the set up of SMES in regional areas.

4. Japanese making a clear point to Thailand that Thai government MUST come up with the workable urban planning to set up mass transits to feed the High Speed train stations to increase the coverage of passengers along with commercial development around station areas as well as along the high speed trains to increase the number of passengers by more migration as well as the encouragement to set up more stations.

Furthermore, Thai government must invest on infrastructure while letting JV company with Private sector to run the train if state enterprise is not capable to run this high speed train.

MoT deputy permanent secretariat told Japanese partners that MoT is drafting the master plan on commercial development around 12 stations of High Speed train from Bangsue Central to Chiang Mai as Japanese partners have made such a request.

On the issue of cargo service along the existing line from Nong Pladuk to Laem CHabang along with the Northern line and North eastern line, there are still lots of issue that failed to meet the market demands [Read : Japanese investors and Japanese Industries in Thailand]. Therefore, the further studies are in need before setting up SPV to run cargo train from Kanchanaburi to Aranyaphrathet with a branch line to Laem Chabang deep sea port with a total distance of 574 km. At the time being, Thailand and Japan has set up the surveying and development of cargo rail transports at Toyota Tuso (Thailand) on 2 June 2016.

Furthermore, Japanese partners have pointed out that there are many ship from Cambodia are using Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port instead of Sihanukville Deep Sea Port but they want to ship their cargo to Poipet checkpoint via cargo rails.

Even more still, Japanese partners making a clear point that Thailand must improve the traffic on existing railway networks to be much more efficiency before setting up the traffic zoning along with connection and the access of under constructed red line commuters and Airport link before ever come up with bypass sections.

Hua Lamphong to celebrate 100 years this weekend

Bangkok Train Station, known to many as Hua Lamphong, opened on Jun 25, 1916. It was built following the orders of King Rama V, who had admired the beauty of Frankfurt Train Station on a trip to Germany in 1907. It's most iconic feature is the classical curved roof with stained glass designed by Mario Tamagno, an Italian architect who also designed Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall and Neilson Hays Library.
