I ignore and trash them
Need more realistic approach by making your own foot survey before drafting such a thing.
what did you said "making your own foot survey" that mean i has to making skywalk?
To be brutally honest, what Wisarut tried to say is "It's rubbish" and "You should go to a real place, real site and do the surveying".

I don't want to be harsh toward you, but the map is not that realistic. You can't run public transport through a theme park and have station on each attraction. I am not sure what vehicle you planned to use. But if it is a train, it can do sharp turn either.

Don't give up and keep learning. I'm delighted younger generation are keen on infrastructure and city planning. If you like this sort of stuff. I recommend playing city building game, Cities: Skylines in particular. City building genre is what makes me interested in infrastructure in the first place.

And by the way, this is international forum. Not Thai forum. Communication should be made in English. It's commonsense.

Covid-19 has driven away the passengers of MRT Blue ring to the point that the number of daily passengers has gone down from 500000 passengers a day to 90000 passengers a day at the lowest point, so the ticket price frozen has to be applied until the end of 2020 even though BEM has a full right to readjust the ticket price to go up by 1 Baht per section to meet the inflation pressure even though the Blue ring has shown the real sign of recovery on the number of daily passengers which has gone up from 200000 passengers a day in May 2020 to 250000 passengers a day in June 2020. However, it would take time to reach the peak of 500000 passengers a day.

Now, BEM have to cleanse both EMUs as well as single trip tokens, so they need to hire 100 contract workers to deal with daily cleaning jobs along with giving 1 million face masks and running 49 sets of EMUs from 54 sets of EMUs.

Bitter rivalry of BEM vs BTSC for the 30 year concession of Orange Line MRT (subway + elevated track) along with the 2.6 km extension of Yellow Line Monorail. For the issue of 30 year concession on Orange Line MRT, the invitation note issued on 3-9 July 2020, the TOR form sold on 10-24 July 2020 before submitting the proposal in September 2020. The 30 year concession will be signed in December 2020 before the Eastern section of Orange Line MRT opened in 2024 and the rest opened in 2026.

The concession for Orange line MRT consists of 14611 Million Baht land expropriation + 96012 million Baht civil work and 32116 million Baht for EMUs and system. The government will pay for land expropriation and subsidies for civil work while the concession holder have to pay for civil works and systems + EMU before getting 96012 million Baht subsidies for 10 years after the whole Orange line MRT opened ... according to PPP Net cost arrangment.

This bidding would be international bidding so both BTSC and BEM are going to pick their own international partners to undertake such a project.
BTSC has hinted that the companies would need Chinese contractors such as China Harbor who can handle the TBM Machines to dig subway tunnels even though BTSC would stick with STECON and Gulf Energy Develpment PCL while Ratburi Power Plant PCL would reluctant to do so.

However, BEM has strong knowledge of subway due to their experience with Blue Ring along with the strong relationship with Japanese contractors which help them to gain knowledge on digging subway tunnels.

For the bitter fighting to realize 2.6 km extension of Yellow line Monorail with a price tag of 3,779 Million Baht, BEM is pressing demands BTSC to pay compensation for passenger loss due to the drain by Yellow line Monorail which BTSC has rejected such bullying demands. This bitter conflict has put MRTA into a dilemma despite of the fact that 2.6 km extension has gotten EIA Clearance. It is likely that MRTA may not approve such extension so long both sides refuse to make a compromise to make a settlement sincew BTSC refuse to pay any compensation to BEM who keep bullying BTSC at all. However, the public pressure toward MRTA along with BTSC and BEM to construct such extension would compell those belligerent parties to find the right compromise to make the extension go on.

Neverthless, the 3 km Branch line of Pink line monorail from Sri rat to Mueangthong Thani has gotten approval from MRTA but needs approval from the cabinet to acknowledge the changes before signing the additional contract in August 2020 so as to start the construction.
