Samrong BTS station to open in April 2017

Samrong BTS station, which is part of the BTS Green Line extension, is set to go through a trial run next month before it officially opens on April 1.

Bangkok Governor Assawin Kwanmuang said the construction of Samrong, the BTS station extended from Bearing, has been completed, and officials are rushing to open it in order to help residents.

Samrong is a part of the 13-kilometer extension known as “Bearing-Samut Prakarn,” which includes nine elevated stations and is scheduled to open next year.

The Nation reported that passengers will not have to pay an extra fare to travel to and from Samrong, and new prices will be set once the entire rail line opens.

The extended route will link the city’s business areas with the Bangkok’s outskirts.
