First phase of double-track railway to be complete in two years

Recommended Posts

Drawings in August, so if you dont have any drawings which means no alignment either how can you estimate the amount of civils work , viaducts , tunnels , earth works and ground formation. So the 2 year estimate is nonsense. I;d say Nong Khai -Knorat best case 6 years worst 10. Depends a lot on whether they treat the ground properly or not, 2 years sounds like they are going to build it on the same shit its sitting on now

2 Years? Are they serious? Not a chance. My money is on 10 years minimum.

First phase is handing out the brown envelopes. That will be done within two years. So just relax everyone, its ok. No one is really interested in building rail lines anyway.

I wonder where the workforce will come from?

Laos and Myanmar would be my guess. For Civils and Rail several thousand people are required, if they want to finish in 2 years then 10s of thousands

I blame the Thai education system. He can't tell the difference between 2 and 10

The Chinese already built the Beijing - Shanghai High Speed Railway which is standard gauge, 1,318kms long, in 2years (2008-2010). 130,000 workers were used during construction, track laying only took 4 months. It was handed over for public service the following year, so it is possible. However, the Chinese do not have to put up with Thai political interference and changes of Government. The aim of this Government is to complete the High Speed Railway whilst it is still in power.

That was the track only , but it was not the civil works ,. The Civil works are 75% of the work

" There are 244 bridges along the line. The 164-km long Danyang–Kunshan Grand Bridge is the longest bridge in the world,[15] the 114-km long viaduct bridge between Langfang and Qingxian is the second longest in the world, and the viaduct between Beijing's 4th Ring Road and Langfang is the fifth longest. The line also includes 22 tunnels, totaling 16.1 km. 1,268 km of the length is ballastless."

The speed of the line has been cut to 300kph , with the main service 250Kph

Do not believe the crap coming out of China
