After the shenanigan by Mayor of Khorat city and voting banks who press the demand for elevated tracks within Khorat city (at least 4.8 km) which is going to delay Map Krabao - Thanon Jira by at least 18 months or worse, those hotel businessmen of Khorat now vent their angry voices against Mayor of Khorat city and voting banks along with the media who are the mouthpieces of Mayor of Khorat city and voting banks who create this delay and chaos at the first place

Double tracking from Khon Kaen to Thanon jira is 35% done - and MoT seems to agree with the ideas from mayor of Khorat city and Governor of Khorat that they need 4.8 km elevated tracks within Khorat city along with the new station building in response to the 4.8 km elevated tracks even it means 3000 Million Baht cost overrun during the inspection of Container yard along with the new station building at Ban Kradone station, Nong Khai Nam commune, Mueang district of Nakhon Ratrchasima.

Ban Phai - Nakhon Phanom for cargo trains and passenger services
Than Setthajij
20 August 2017


Bidding for Ban Phai - Mahasarakham - Roy Ed - Mukdahan - nakhon Phanom project is now waiting for EIA clearance which takes 6 months to be done before asking cabinet approvals for budget by the end of 2017 or early 2018 - most section passing empty land, paddy field, sugar plantation, tapioca plantation without passing reserved forests so it is relatively easy to get land exappropriation for 8-0 meter wide landstrip - - with container station at the foot of 2nd Friendship bridge and 3rd Friendship bridge - stations are in suburbs though

the total distance is 354.783 km in 5 provinces including Khon Kaen, Mahasarakham - Roy Ed - Yasothon Mukdahan - nakhon Phanom - EIRR 12.3% passing Ban Phai, Kud Rang, Borabue, mahasarakham, Roy Ed, Chiang Kwan, Phone ^Thong, Nong Phok, Nikhom Khamsoy, Loeng Noktha, Mukdahan, Warn Yai, That Phanom, Renu Nakhon, and Nakhon Phanom

OTP has come up with Surat Thani - Donsak railway line using the right of the way of Highway 44 which passes through para rubber plantation as well as palm oil plantation with total distance of 77 km to cut down the land acquisition cost instead of shorter route (62.5 km) which is much closer to downtown Surat Thani (Ban Don) - Donsak is a terminus for ferry to Samui Island (favorite place for German and European tourists to have sunbath) though.

Italian Thai Development PCL is the winner for 58-km Map Krabao - Klong Khanan Jit section of Map Krabao - Thanon Jira Junction double tracking with a price tag of 7,650 Million Baht, 160 Million Baht lower than the mean price after winning Hua hin - Prachuab Khirikhan double tracking with a price tag of 5807 million Baht and Nong Pla lai - Hua Hin section of Nakhon Pathom - Hua Hin double tracking with a price tag of 7520 million Baht while AS Associated 1964 PCL won the section from Nakhon Pathom to Nong Pla Lai

However, the second section from Klong Khanan Jit to Thanon Jira Junction (70 km at 6,869.61 Million Baht) has to be postponed due to the controversies on 4.8-5.1 km elevated track within Khorat city area which requires the remodeling of Nakhon Ratchasima station to enable to accommodate both regular trains and High Speed train as Nakhon Ratchasima has been assigned as the terminus for the first section and of course about 4000 million Baht cost overrun

For the first phase (green lines). Two double tracking lines are currently under contruction (nr. 1 & nr. 2), while the rest recently got their construction contractor and will begin construction soon.

Phase two (orange & blue lines) will begin the bidding process in 2018.

Conclusion of bidding for massive double tracking - with ONLY the section from Klong Khananjit to Thanon Jira has to be postponed due to the issue with 5.1 km elevated track within Khorat city


1. Hua Hin - Prachuab Khirikhan - ITD won at 5,807 Million Baht
2. Nakhon Pathom - Hua Hin Section 1 (Nakhon Pathom - Nong Pla Lai) - AS Associate Engineering (1964) won at 8,198 Million Baht
3. Nakhon Pathom - Hua Hin Section 2 (Nong Pla Lai - Hua Hin with the new elevated station at Hua Hin) - STECON won at 7,520 Million Baht
4. Map Krabao - Thanon Jita Section 1 (Map Krabao - Klong Khanant Jit) - ITD Won at 7,560 Million Baht

5. Lopburi - Pak Nampho Section 3 (Tha Khae - Pak Nampho) - Unique Engineering and Construction (UNIQ) PCL won at 8,649 Million Baht
6. Prachuab Khirikhan - Chumporn Section 1 (Prachuab Khirikhan - Bang Saphan Noy including the new station building at Prachuab Khirikhan) - Krung Thonburi - China Railway 11th Bureau won at 6,465 Million Baht
7. Prachuab Khirikhan - Chumporn Section 2 (Bang Saphan Noy - Chumporn including the new station building at Chumporn) - STECON - Thai P-Con (Producers of concrete sleepers in Saraburi) won at 5,992 Million Baht
8. Map Krabao - Thanon Jita Section 3 (Tunnel Section) - ITD - and Right Tunneling won at 9,290 Million Baht
9. Lopburi - Pak Nampho Section 1 (Ban Klub - Kho Krathiam - elevated track for bypass) - Unique Engineering and Construction (UNIQ) PCL - Sino Hydro Consortium won at 10,050 illion Baht

Conclusions:
1. ITD getting 3 contracts
2. CK PCL failed to win the contract at all
3. Chinese contractors have learnt that the only way they can get the contracts in Thailand is to form a partnership with the local contractors - unless the projects have been financed by Chinese loan.

Need Super Board approvals on 11 September 2017 though

Next on the line is 50 new loco of 16 ton axle load to replace GEKs and the leasing of 50 locomotives

Once Hua Hin High Speed train station near Hua Hin Airport at Bo fai has been opened, the revival of Bo fai station (closed in 1994) has to be realized to function as feeder to High Speed train system - while using existing Ban Khoo Bua station as station for feeder to Ratburi station of High speed train - Phetburi is a special case as it is not within the existing Southern railway line, so mass transit to connect the existing Phetburi station and Phetburi station of high speed train are in need.

MoT inspecting the progress on Nakhon Pathom - Hua Hin double tracking which has been separated into 2 contracts

Contract 1: Nakhon Pathom - Nong Pla Lai - 93 km (km 47+700 - km 140 + 700) with 17 stations at grade along with 80 Concrete bridge and Steel Bridge across Meklong river in parallel with existing Chulalongkorn Bridge - AS Associated Engineering (1964) won at 8,198 million Baht

Contract 2: Nong Pla Lai - Hua Hin - 76 km (km 140 + 700 - km 217 + 008 including elevated track from km 211 + 407 - km 215 + 893 [some said km 211 + 582.9 - km 215+872.9 - 4.29 km]) - 9 stations at grade and 1 elevated station at Hua Hin along with 92 concrete bridges - Sino Thai Engineering and Construction won at 7520 Million Baht

This double tracking is using UIC54 (AKA BS110) welded steel rails with monoblock concrete sleepers and thick ballast to allow 160 kph max

MoT telling SRT and contractors to work on improving the access roads to the stations and stops - First is to give him information about the existing access roads as well as the plan to improve the access roads to stations and stops during the construction and after the construction - with cooperation from Highway Dept, Rural Highway Dept, and local administrations - all to be done within a month so as to start the real construction in December 2017

Furthermore, SRT must come up with the plan to preserve the old station buildings in addition the facilities to allow better connection to and from the stations and the way to design the station using the famous local items - case to point is Jars of Ratburi, Nang Yai and so on

Governor of Ratburi also glad for this double tracking project as his province is going to get full benefits from this project and

SRT Board going to submit the results from bidding for 5 double trackings with a bone of contention on the section through Khorat city which is to be elevated double tracks along with the issue of borrowing money to finance the project after the procurement Board has ordered the split of 5 projects into 13 contracts to cut down the cost as well as to allow more participants for biddings - but SRT needs to secure loans before signing the contracts
http://www.thansettakij.com/content/208928


For the bidding of the constructions on 5 routes with 9 contracts, it has saved the government treasury by 2573 million Baht (the mean price is 72,104 Million Baht but the actual bidding is 69,531 Million Baht. If we take 5000 Million Baht saving of the reduced mean price into account the saving will be 7573 million Baht - so the contract will be signed in this September 2017 so as to start the construction in October - November 2017 and the constructions are expected to be done in 2020 -2021.

Expect the controversial section (Klong Khanantjit - Thanon Jira) that requires 5.1-km elevated tracks within Khorat city to have the contract split into 2 sections since the elevated section expect the cost overrun around 2 - 3000 million from the mean price of 7,060 Million Baht. This is due to the fact that the 5.1-km elevated track requires the NEW EIA to deal with but we need to get the work started immediately so the contract splitting has become necessary to solve this dilemma - but how to split the contract will need another 2 months to make a settlement so that all the contracts (other than 5.1 km elevated track within Khorat city) can be sign by the end of 2017 and started the construction in 2018.

On the issue of Signal Installation contracts - which to be on bidding in early 2018, right after the construction of massive double tracking has been started. These Signal Installation contracts - will be international bidding for CTC system of 5 contracts with total price tag of 12,921 Million Baht.

Here are 5 contracts which the winners would start their work 6-7 months after the construction has been started

1. Lopburi - Pak Nam Pho - 3 contracts along 145 km route at at 7,384 Million Baht
2. Nakhon Pathom - Chumporn - 1 contract along 421 km route at 7,384 Million Baht
3. Map Krabao - Thanon Jira - 1 contract along 128 km route at 2,549 Million Baht

Expect the fight to the bitter end from Siemens from Germany, Bombardier from Canada, LG from South Korea, Al Sado from Spain and Hitachi from Japan and China Railway from mainland China to get the contracts to install CTC. Bombardier has their systems installed along Ban Phachi - Lopburi, Ban Phachi - Map Krabao, and Makkasan - Chachoengsao. Siemens already won the bidding for CTC installation from Thanon Jira to Khon Kaen and LG already won the bidding for CTC installation from Kaeng Khoi to Chachoengsoa via Klong 19 Junction

Signing the contracts to construct double tracking (9 sections at 70,104 Million Baht) by the end of October 2017 but the section from Klong Khanantchit to Thanon Jira including 5.1 km elevated track will call the bidding by the end of 2018 along with the bidding for CTC at 12,921 Million Baht

Wider TOR for new 50 Diesel electric locomotives of 16 ton axle load with the mean price of 6240 Million Baht + the leasing of 50 locomotives for 15 years at 48,721 Baht a day per locomotive as the old TOR has allowed only one bidder which is totally unacceptable

Thai - Japan railway cooperation according to MoT
1. the preliminary on High Speed train from Bangsue Central to Phitsanuloke with the total distance of 380 km will be under preliminary design by JICA using the OTP design as a base
in November 2017 to be submitted to the cabinet in December 2017 and the detail design will be handled in 2018 so as to start the construction in 2019 and done in 2022

2. according to MoT, we have learnt that after Thai - Japan High Speed train from Bangsue Central to Phitsanuloke are getting EIA clearance, JICA has given the preliminary assessement
on the budget for such a project =>
2.1 Bangsue Central to Phitsanuloke is now 276,225 Million Baht, up from the result from OTP and Thai consultant at 233,771 Million Baht by 42,454 Million Baht.
2.2 Phitsanuloke to Chiang Mai via Sukhothai is now 269,338Million Baht, up from the result from OTP and Thai consultant at 216,656 Million Baht by 52,682 Million Baht.

3. For the issue of Phunamron (Kanchanaburi) to Laem Chabang along with the route to Aranyaprathet with total distance of 574 km as meter gauge rail, still under studying
4. For the issue of Maesod (Tak) to Mukdahan, still under studying - and it will create another bone of contention if SRT badly wants Nakhon Sawan - Tak - Mae Sod along with Ban Phai - Mukdahan - Nakhon Phanom as a part of Maesod (Tak) to Mukdahan - how to connect these 2 new lines with the shortest distance is the real bone of contention
5. After testrun to carry 12 feet container boxes to please the small customers who use pickups, both Thai and Japanese government have learnt very hard way that the customers have not appreciated
with small container box carrying at all as they still prefer the more familiar 20 feet container boxes and 40 feet long container boxes. This also has compelled to set up Thai - Japan cargo transportation
by rails as SPV to be implemented in 2018

6. Japan has sold 21 sets of Three-car MRT carriages for Purple line produced by J-TREC via Marubeni-Toshiba which are to be under 10-year maintainace of JR-East and Japan is goign to supply 25 set of 4-car and 6-car EMUs from Mitsubishi - Sumitomo - Hitachi for red line commuter networks at 32399 million Baht
