Plans underway for mass transit and Phuket-Surat Thani rail link to connect Gulf of Thailand to the Andaman Sea

PHUKET: Plans for a new mass transit system connecting Phuket to Surat Thani have been announced, with a study now underway to determine the best way to do it.

The plan is for some sort of transit system, which has yet to be decided, to connect Don Sak in Surat Thani, to Tha-Noon, in Phang Nga just over Sarasin Bridge. This will be some type of “heavy rail” system. The second part of the plan will connect Tha-Noon to Phuket International Airport, and will then go to Chalong Circle. Egis Rail, a Singapore-based company, won the bid to complete the two feasibility studies for the project. The study began in September this year and will continue for another 14 months.

Ultra awarded contract to provide airpot operational systems to Viracopos International Airport in Brazil

Ultra Electronics announces that its Airport Systems business, based in Kansas City, MO, has been awarded a contract to provide a comprehensive suite of Airport Operations and Information Systems at Viracopos International Airport (VCP), in Campinas, Brazil.

This airport is about 99km north of São Paulo – Brazil’s largest metropolitan area – and serves as the hub for Azul Brazilian Airlines. Viracopos is undergoing significant expansion and will soon become the largest airport in South America. In the current cycle of planned investments, the existing passenger terminal is being renovated and a new terminal is being built which will result in a doubling of capacity for cargo and passenger traffic in preparation for the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympic games. In addition, the basic project and preparatory work to add a second runway (out of a total of three new ones) has already started.

In February 2012, the Brazil Airports Consortium, consisting of TPI Triunfo Participacoes e Investimentos SA, UTC Holdings SA and France's EGIS Airport Operation, was awarded a 30-year concession for operating and maintaining the airport. The Brazil Airport Consortium will spend approximately US$5B towards the airport's improvements during the concession period, including a minimum of US$1B investment necessary before the FIFA World Cup 2014.

Egis and Sanef JV to build first N American toll interoperability hub for ATI - to start by end of year

An American based joint venture of Egis Projects and Sanef, Secure Interagency Flow LLC (SIF) has a contract with the Alliance for Toll Interoperability (ATI) to build and operate the first full toll transactions matching hub in North America. The hub - or 'HUB' as it is being called - will work from constantly uplisted lists of participating toll operators' accounts to match transactions of others' account holders. The contract is the result of about six months of back and forth in negotiations between SIF and ATI over a fee schedule that would be attractive to ATI members while also having sufficient transactions volumes and revenues to justify SIF's costs. SIF was the only one of four participants in pilot hubs to make a detailed proposal in a competitive procurement that began over two years ago. Actual daily processing of accountholders transactions at the HUB will begin January 1, 2014

One step forward – Chennai

Design studies for the Bengaluru-Chennai expressway completed

The Bengaluru-Chennai greenfield express-way project, covering a length of 260 km, has seen significant progress in the past few months. The feasibility study-cum-­preliminary design report was submitted in March 2013 to the implementing agency, National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), by Egis-BCEOM International SA, in association with SECON Private Limited. The six-lane project is part of the 1,000 km expressway plan under Phase VI of the National Highways Development Program.

Details of the project

"Extensive consultations/meetings with the three state governments helped to finalise the alignment in their respective states," says the deputy chief executive officer of Egis lndia Consulting Engineers Private Limited.

Singh explains the relatively higher toll rates and says, "ln the absence of any toll policy regarding expressways, we have suggested that toll rates could be fixed higher than those on national highways as safer facilities and higher level of services will be provided on the expressway. The toll rates could be 1.25/1.5/1.75 times those on national highways. The feasibility study has indicated that the concession period is lower when toll rates are 1.5 times the existing rates and also there is optimum diversion of traffic to the greenfield expressway.”

"The project is financially viable when toll rates are 1.5 times the existing rates on the national highway and so does not require any financial grant or equity support from the government." says Singh.

"NHAI will find it difficult to acquire land once the new land acquisition bill is passed by Parliament.” says Singh.
