New ticket prices after the end of Free ride - after erecting EDCs. however, there are the big problems for those
who have to ride at the stopping places instead of stations since there is no stationmaster at the stopping places

Welfare card have 500 baht quota for free rides

Contractors are waiting on the decisions for the Phase 2 massive double tracking on 9 routes as it is expected there will be 30 contracts or more with total price tags of 398,377 Million Baht so that there will be more participants on bidding and workings - economic stimulation after all - after the successful bidding for 5 routes with 13 contracts (10 civil work contracts + 3 signal installation contracts) - Here is the list of 9 routes:

Chumporn - Surat Thani - 23,384 Million Baht - expect 2-3 contracts
Surat Thani - Hatyai - Songkla 51823 million Baht - expect 5 - 6 contracts including the new tunnel in parallel with the existing Chong Khao tunnel and Hatyai - Songkla section
Hatyai - Padang Besar - 7941 million - Just 1 contracts - another contract is for signal installation and the other contract will be electrification
Pak Nampho - Denchai - 56066 million Baht - expect 5-6 contracts including the new tunnel in parallel with Pang Toob Khob tunnel and Khao Plueng tunnel
Denchai - Chiang Mai - 59924 million Baht - expect 6 contracts including the construction of Huay Mae Larn tunnel along with the contracts to handle Denchai - Lampang while the section from Lampang to Chiang Mai expect to follow the new routes and the new long tunnel
Thanon Jira Junction - Ubon - 35839 million Baht - expect 4 contracts
Khon Kaen - Nong Khai - 26065 million Baht - expect 3 contracts
Denchai -Chiang Rai - Chiang Khong - 77000 million Baht - expect at least 8 contracts including the contract to handle tunnels
Bang Phai - Mahasarakham - Roy Ed - Loeng Nok Tha - Mukdahan - Nakhon Phanom - 60351 million Baht - expect at least 7 contracts


For the first 10 contracts as parts of massive double tracks on 5 routes, the official signing will be in December 2017

the criteria for each contract is 8-10000 Million Baht per contract - with even further distance which has to take into account while contracts on signal must be under reconsideration

Seem to me that people pick Choice 1 for Chumporn - Ranong line

Choice 1: Branching out at 2.3 km South of Chumporn station (km. 468.53) at the Northern end of Saeng Daed station (km 472.54) - Ranong Deep Sea port with total distance of 102.50 km with 9 stations including

1. Saeng Daed station - Chumporn
2. Khun Krathing station - Chumporn
3. Ban Na station - Chumporn
4. Wang Mai station - Chumporn
5. Pak Chan station - Kraburi district of Ranong
6. Kraburi station - Kraburi district of Ranong
7. Bang Yai station - Kraburi district of Ranong
8. La Un station - La Un district of Ranong
9. Ranong Deep Sea Port - Khao Nang Hong commune - Muang district of Ranong

However, there will be a 4-km branch line to downtown Ranong for Choice 1 by popular demands

Even though those local people of Ranong and Chumporn strongly support this Chumporn - Ranong railway project, there is a serious concern on the line that pass Mangrove forest and well as the line that pass schools, temples along with flood drainage since the Southern region have perennial flash flood so the railway line should not have any flood flow obstruction - need further public hearing before submitting the final results to the cabinet along with EIA clearance

Wave of rail links to slash logistics costs

Bangkok Post | December 29, 2017 at 06:00

Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak has announced the government plans to shift the country's main transport mode from road and air links to trains following the signing of contracts for five double-track railways.

Mr Somkid presided over the signing ceremony for nine contracts between the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) and private contractors on Thursday.

Most of Thailand's 4,000km of railways are single-track. The government will initially add an additional 1,000km of double-track railways to enable the shift away from roads and air, said Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith.

The second phase double-track project is worth 398 billion baht. This will cover nine routes running a combined 2,217km. Cabinet approval is scheduled to be sought later this month or early next year.
