Bangkok – Three skytrain lines due next year

Construction News

Three mass-transit lines will be tabled for cabinet approval this year so that bids can called early in 2015.

The State Railway of Thailand has already sent the details of the three projects to the Transport Ministry, said transport permanent secretary Soithip Traisut on Saturday.

Two of them are the Red Line extensions (Bang Sue-Hua Mak and Bang Sue-Hua Lamphong) and the other is the Airport Rail Link extension (Phaya Thai-Don Muang).

The three lines will share a tunnel which runs from Chitralada Palace to Yommarat intersection.

On the progress of the Chachoengsao-Khlong Sib Khao- Kaeng Khoi dual-track railway, Ms Soithip said the committee scrutinising state spending was considering it.

If the committee approves it, the bid can be called, she added.
