Three rail projects worth Bt300bn to go before Cabinet this month: Arkhom

The Transport Ministry will table three rail-track projects worth Bt300 billion combined before the Cabinet later this month, Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith said on Tuesday.

They include the Purple Line southern route, featuring the Tao Poon-Ratburana section worth Bt131 billion, and the Orange Line western route, featuring the Taling Chan-Thailand Cultural Centre section worth Bt109 billion.

These two projects belong to the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA).

The third is the State Railway of Thailand’s Bt60-billion double-track project from Den Chai to Chiang Mai.

Arkhom said he would also present for Cabinet approval next week the bid results of the Lat Phrao-Samrong section of the Yellow Line monorail project, and the Khae Rai-Min Buri section of the Pink Line monorail project.

BSR Joint Venture – comprising BTSG, Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction and Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding – recently won the bidding for these two lines.

The project was initiated under a public-private-partnership scheme by the MRTA.
