Client : State Railway of Thailand (SRT)
Services : Feasibility Study, Environmental Impact Assessment, Detailed Design and Construction Supervision
The Commuter Train System (Red Line), Bang Sue – Taling Chan Section will run for a stretch of 15 km. It was born in response to a Cabinet resolution on the urgent need for a transportation system plan, which accommodates the travel needs of people in suburban areas. The plan aims to extend rail-based services to Nakhon Pathom too. In the preliminary stage, there will be three stations for the Bang Sue – Taling Chan Section: Bang Son, Bang Bamru, and Taling Chan stations.
The SRT has commissioned the TEAM GROUP to study and review the environmental impact assessment report for the construction of new train stations namely Bang Kruai – EGAT Station and Rama VI Station (Bangkok side), as well as extension of the Commuter Train System (Red Line) from Taling Chan Station to Salaya Station, and from the Taling Chan Station to Thon Buri – Siriraj Station. The TEAM GROUP has been assigned to prepare details and specifications for construction and estimate the construction cost of the Bang Kruai – EGAT Station and Rama VI Station, and adjustment for the Taling Chan – Salaya Section as well.
