MRTA BLUE LINE UNDERGROUND (ALIGNMENT STUDY AND PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF THE UNDERGROUND CONSTRUCTION FROM HUA LAMPHONG VIA ASOK TO THE DEPOT AT HUAI KHWANG) (UPDP)

The Initial System Project is a heavy rail, rapid transit system covering a route of 20 km with 21 transit stations from Hua Lamphong via Huai Khwang to Bang Sue.  It connects two of the existing mass transit projects, namely, the Tanayong Project by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and the Hopewell Project by the State Railway of Thailand.

The 11 kilometre section from Hua Lamphong via Asoke to the Depot at Huai Khwang which is the scope of this Project is to be of underground construction in accordance with the Government’s objective to construct all mass transit systems underground in a 25 square meter inner core area of Bangkok.

The services provided were divided into two parts as follows :

  • The alignment and feasibility study of The underground construction from Hua Lamphong via Asoke to the Depot at Huai Khwang which included a comparative study of alternative underground routes in engineering, economic, financial and environmental impact terms; a study to recommend and report on construction methods; provision of an overall construction sequence and a detailed sequence for each station; a review of disposal methods for excavated materials; preparation of traffic management plans; provision of a construction programme; a report on the possible effects of the construction on the underground water tunnel and high rise buildings; and the provision of preliminary conceptual drawings and a cost estimate.
  • The preliminary design and financial analysis of the underground construction from Hua Lamphong via Asoke to the Depot at Huai Khwang which included a study and review of the number and suitability of station locations; preparation of the Preliminary Design of the final underground route; preparation of the Outline Design defining land required for construction; preparation of an Outline Design Specification, Outline Construction Specification and Tender Documents; a review of the suitability of electrical and mechanical systems; preparation of a detailed construction cost estimate; preparation of a detailed construction schedule; preparation of a Project Financial Analysis and arrange a seminar for 300 personnel.
