S44 fast-track mulled for Thai-Sino rail

http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/tran...thai-sino-rail

The government is considering invoking Section 44 of the interim charter to tackle stumbling blocks for the long-delayed Thai-Chinese high-speed railway project linking Bangkok and Nakhon Ratchasima to enable construction to start this year.

Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak said the Thai-Chinese high-speed train project has been long-delayed thanks to a spate of technical problems and legal issues.

"The government may need to ask for the National Council for Peace and Order's permission to invoke Section 44 to speed up the project's construction," he said. "And Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha himself has ordered that construction on the project commence this year."

Mr Somkid said the issues hindering the Thai-Chinese rail project must be addressed before Gen Prayut visits China in September to attend the 9th BRICS summit. BRICS is an acronym for the combined economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said the ministry is consulting Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam about which aspects of the rail project should be sped up with Section 44.

He said the ministry will finalise details of the project before asking for the cabinet's approval next month.

After the 18th meeting of a Thai-Sino panel recently held in Bangkok, Mr Arkhom said pending the cabinet's approval, the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) in July will hire a party from China to design the 252.5km rail track and subsequently call bidding for the 179-billion-baht project.

Almost all of the details of the joint development were worked out at that meeting, attended by Wang Xiaotao, vice-chairman of China's National Development and Reform Commission, the minister said.

The Bangkok-Nakhon Ratchasima route is part of a scheme which will, upon its completion, be extended with a 354km rail line from Nakhon Ratchasima to Nong Khai, which borders Laos. Looking closer at the Bangkok-Nakhon Ratchasima project, the SRT has agreed to divide it into four sections.

The ministry has finished drafting the terms of reference of the first 3.5km section linking Klang Dong and Pang Asok in Pak Chong district, Nakhon Ratchasima. The SRT expects to call bidding for this section between July and August.

Another three sections are an 11km route from Pak Chong to Sikhiu district; an 119km section between Nakhon Ratchasima and Kaeng Khoi district, Saraburi; and the 119km section from Kaeng Khoi to Bangkok.

Meanwhile, Mr Arkhom said Thailand and Japan are now studying the feasibility of the Tak-Mukdahan line, known as the upper East-West corridor.

He said the State Railways of Thailand has already completed a feasibility study for the Ban Phai (Khon Kaen)-Nakhon Phanom section and Nakhon Sawan-Maesot section of the plan. Japan has reported the feasibility study for a high-speed rail project linking Bangkok and Chiang Mai is expected to go to the Transport Ministry by the end of this year. But Mr Arkhom said the study has found the investment costs to be relatively high.

BTW, it has to clarify on how to handle the line near 4 reserved forests and a wildlife sanctuary

For the case of Thai - Japan railway along with the railways that connect 3 airports, it is still under further study to accommodate Shinkansen carriages and if Japanese government and Keidanren (Japanese business Association) badly want the extension to Ayutthaya, Thai - Japan high speed train first phase should be started as well even though this means only about 70 km section from Bangsue Central to Ayutthaya via Donmueang will have to be built first.

1. Boosting the efficiency of Hua Mark - Chachoengsao - Sri Racha (125 km) at 8000 Million Baht - CTC already been in place but more are to be done

Now, those from Khorat city Hall, Khorat chamber of commerce and so on appealing to the 2ndf Army region commander for the elevated tracks within Khorat city - just like what those Khon Kaen city has gotten ... However, they no longer tolerate those who disagree with them by erasing all the posts of dissent voices despite of the fact that the elevated tracks will add at least 10 billion Baht more and years of delays

Has got anyone here any closer information about the railroad tracks and stations for the rail-project along the east coast? Starting from Rayong and going through Chanthaburi with Trat and probably the Cambodian border as target? A map with a rail-route would be nice? Anyone any information about this? Thanks!

At least, the first section will follow the existing railway lines (Sattahip line and maptaphut line) - but other lines will need land exappropriation but the most controversial one is the bypass route from Sri Racha to Maptaphut though Pluak Daeng which follow much of Highway 331 which already pass through jungle and para rubber estates

BTW, EEC Board has just approved in principal on massive double tracking to support Eastern Economic Corridor - connecting Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port with Sattahip Port and Maptaphut Port - effectively allow double tracking to Pataya - but need private sector to help this massive double tracking though.

After the issue for elevated track have become heated up, SRT will have to find the way to come up with compromise - as SRT has found out that SRT need 6-7 km of elevated tracks within Khorat city - effectively have to rebuild Nakhon Ratchasima station and Thanon Jira Junction as elevated station just to please those Lumpen proletariat who happen to be voting banks for the Mayor of Khorat city - effectively a big cost overrun - and now even Governor of Nakhon Ratchasima have raised this issue in line with Mayor of Khorat city - decision will be held next week - but we need to know how to finance the extra work of 7 km elevated track along with the modification of Nakhon Ratchasima station and Thanon Jira Junction

SRT have to deal with those overbearing Khorat people who keep pressing the demands for elevated tracks - 7 - 12 km within Khorat city along with Thanon Jira junction and the other 15 km around Si Kiew near Lam Takhong reservoir - another cost overrun and project delays for sure - Human being should never be such an overbearing like this one though. The conclusion will be delivered before the bidding for the second contract on 1 September 2017 though - Human being should never be such an overbearing like this one though.

No more free ride after 1 October 2017 after the implementation of EDC system to read the welfare cards for those who are below the poverty line and senior citizens

SRT needs 100 locomotives (50 new Diesel electric locomotives with axle load of 16 tons + 50 leasing Diesel electrict locomotives with lease term of 15 + 5 years) at 19500 Million Baht and 186 DEMU carriages at 13000 million Baht which are to be purchased in 2018 - 2025 in response to the massive double tracking in 16 sections with total distance of 3169 km
as the way to earn more revenue at least 5453 million Baht a year due to 6 million more passengers with expect revenue of 493 million Baht and 20.9 million ton more cargoes [1500 million Baht from containers, 1309 million Baht from Iron ore, and 1325 million Baht from coal, and
825 million Baht from Potash]. So far SRT has 140 locomotives but ONLY 50-60% (70-84 locomotives) are actually in use while the rest are so old - need to be decomissioned due to the lack of spare parts that suit to the old locomotives -
Those DEMU carriages are for those relatively short distance of 300 - 400 km though

Need 8114 Million Baht More for the elevated tracks in both Sikiw Municipal and Khorat City Municipal as demanded by mayor of Khorat city and Governor of Nakhon Ratchasima as a part of 132 km Map krabao - Thanon Jira with a price tag of 24,115 Million Baht

There are three options
1. staying the same which not pleasing mayor of Khorat city and Governor of Nakhon Ratchasima

2. 4.8 km elevated track with the price tag of 2133 million Baht extra cost for both elevated tracks and New station Building for Nakhon ratchasima along with 17 more months for the construction - not to mention about the new EIA for both 4.8 km elevated track and New station Building for Nakhon Ratchasima which have to enable to handle the existing railway service and the future High Speed train - the starting point for elevated tracks are at km 261+637 and the ending point for elevated track is at km 265+919 - SRT still concern about the cargo trains which may not be able to climb the elevated tracks though - even though it has eliminated the need to demolish Hua Thale flyover - but no more level crossing at Chai Narong road behind Panja Data hotel and Benjrong road near the gate to Fort Suranareee - and the gate to Fort Suranaree will be maximum at 3 meter height - effectively prevent military truck with full load of ammunition to pass through - so Mayor of Khorat asking for higher elevated track to allow the military trucks from Fort Suranaree to pass through without problem - not to mention about level crossing at Chainarong road and Benjarong road - This is a compromise choice which every party can agree with even though it require the demolition of flyover near sima Thanee Hotel

3. 12 km elevated track with the price tag of 8114 Million Baht extra cost for both elevated tracks and new station building for both Nakhon Ratchasima which have to enable to handle the existing railway service and the future High Speed train and the new station building for Thanon Jira - not to mention about 46 more months for the construction and new EIA to handle 12 km of elevated track, new station buildings at Nakhon Ratchasima and Thanon Jira
