The Red Line Delayed Again Until 2023

The Red Line Delayed Again Until 2023

The transport ministry has announced the contractor on the northern Red Line has asked for another 500 days to complete the project pushing the opening back to 2023.

Minister of Transport, Saksayam Chidchob, said delays were caused by extra work needed on electrical and power transmission systems, signalling and communication equipment, plus the automatic fare collection system.

Approval for the Red Line running from Thammasat University in Rangsit to Bang Sue was granted in January 2009 and has been plagued by delays, disputes, and budget overspending since construction finally started in 2013.

The Red Line was initially expected to open in 2018, then 2020, now 2023.

The budget for the 1st Phase of the Dark Red Line project has progressively increased due to the delays and further redesign of the project. It has risen from an initial 59.89 billion baht in 2007, to 75.55 billion baht in 2009 and to 80.38 billion baht in 2012. An additional requested for 8.14 billion baht will increase the current budget to 88.52 billion baht.

Initially, the SRT Red Line will run from the new Bang Sue Grand Central north for 26 km via Don Mueang to terminate at Rangsit in Pathum Thani Province. The line will then be extended a further 10 km north from Rangsit to Thammasat University’s Rangsit campus.

In phase 2 it will run 11km from Bang Sue south via Phaya Thai to terminate at Hua Lumphong station.

The final section of the line will run south-east from Hua Lumphong for 39 km to Maha Chai in Samut Sakhon Province via Wong Wian Yai along the current Maha Chai railway alignment.

Taiwan Extending Visa-Free Entry For Thais

The visa-free programme for visitors to Taiwan from Thailand has been extended for another year the Foreign Ministry in Taipei announced last week.

Taiwan began to ease visa rules for the 18 “New Southbound Policy” countries back in August 2016 as part of President Tsai Ing-wen’s efforts to advance ties with Asian countries following a significant slump in tourists from China.

Visitors from the Philippines, Brunei and Russia are also included, however, with borders to Thailand still pretty much sealed off and few international flights coming or going, it is unlikely many Thais will be heading for a holiday in Taiwan anytime soon.
