Is there any news about the ARL extension via Bang Sue to Don Muang (and to U-Tapao)?

I did read in the Bangkok Post that the contract was due to be signed mid-May. Later I did read the contract was due to be signed mid-June, but until now I did not read that the contract was actually signed. Is this project still on track?

No pun intended right?

Yes and no. The CP Group which won the tender for the Eastern HSR (which will take over the ARL) is doing detailed design work. However, the SRT had a meeting with them on Monday to integrate the NE HSR line (stage 1 to Korat) for the DMK to Bang Sue section into the Eastern HSR into the design.

The CP Group plans to start construction of the DMK - Phaya Thai section before the end of the year. The SRT says it wants them to pay for the integrated construction of this section and then they will reimburse the CP Group. So they need to both do the integrated design work AND finalise an agreement reflecting the SRT request.

The final tenders for the NE HSR line are due by the end of the year. There are still issues regarding site access and the design of the HSR line viaduct given the limited space of the right of way in some areas along the Bang Sue to DMK corridor.

So no more changing at Hua Lumphong for a shuttle service on a 8 min headway!
From this Sat 21 Sept, the MRT Blue line will operate the full extension to Lak Song from 6am until 11pm preparing for the full opening on 29 Sept. (Still free until 29 Sept).
