there used to be boat service from Saphan Mai to Phra Khanong via Lad Phrao canal with the list of the following piers:



1. ท่าสะพานใหม่ Tha Saphan Mai
2. ท่าแจ้งวัฒนะ Tha Changwattana
3. ท่าบางบัว Tha Bang Bua
4. ท่าเสนานิคม Tha Senanikom
5. ท่าอาภาภิรมย์ Tha Arpapirom
6. ท่าวัดลาดพร้าว Tha Wat Lad Phrao
7. ท่าสะพาน 2 Tha Saphan 2
8. ท่าสุทธิสาร Tha Sutthisan
9. ท่าลาดพร้าว Tha Lad Phrao
10. ท่าประชาอุทิศ Tha Pracha Uthit
11. ท่าไทย-ญี่ปุ่น Tha Thai-Yipun (Thai-Japan)
12. ท่าคลองตัน Tha Khlong Tan
13. ท่าสุขุมวิท 71 Tha Sukhumvit 71
14. ท่ามหาบุศย์ Tha Mahabut
15. ท่าพระโขนง Tha Phrakanong

Wish that BMA would revive such a boat service to feed the mass transit system though

Renovation at the National Stadium Station (W1) and at the intersection of Pathumwan, which is being renovated and ready for service on August 4,
the company has installed the Stair Lift for its users. Wheelchairs will be used to travel between MBK Shopping Center and the National Stadium Skytrain Station.
This will make it more convenient. The images shows testing of the stair lift before it is open to the public in the coming days.
Pathum Wan Skywalk with a price tag of 300 Million Baht to be delivered to BMA on 4 August 2017 with the elevator for the handicapped along the stairways - and it is ready to handle 500000 pedestrians a day - expect the boost of those who come to the shopping malls around Pathumwan intersection to go up from 85000 customers a day to 100000 customers a day

Would you say that the skywalk networks will continue to expand over time?

With the view of improving pedestrian flows in downtown areas?

They all connect, I've created a map showing the skywalks network in the shopping district area.



Here you can see Chaloem Pao Skywalk at 0:40, which is still under renovation.

The skywalks in the shopping district won't be expanded anymore, since every important shopping centers and places in that area are already connected. There will be skywalks in other areas though.

Would you happen to know how long the existing skywalk system is in Bangkojk?

No, sorry I don't and the Bangkok Metropolitan Government doesn't keep track of the length either.

I wondered the same thing...maybe the person who designed the map needs more time to add in to the purple line extension as it will require adjustments where the purple line extension intersects with the orange line, blue line, and dark green line.

I think the person who made the map decided to put the orange line western section for easy reference, when updating the map in the future, and the reason the purple line extension isn't included might be because it was recently approved last month and the news is only in Thai. Might need to send an email to him about the purple line extension

Confirmed by Mr. Arkhom Termpittayapaisith, Ministry of Transport that the second phase of Bangkok Metropolitan Mass Transit Map (M-Map) will include several train lines. The second phase map is made in cooperation with JICA - "Japan International Cooperation Agency" and is scheduled to be completed in 2018, which will be a new network linking up with the 10 major train lines in the first phase. All remaining major train lines in the first phase are expected to be approved this year.

4 Mass Transit Lines that are confirmed to be included in the second phase are:

BMA Grey Line Monorail | 16.25 km - (Watcharapol - Thonglor)
MRT Brown Line | 21.5 km - (Kaerai - Lamsamli)
BMA Gold Line | 2.7 km - (Krung Thonburi - Prachatipok)
BMA Bang Na - Suvarnabhumi LRT | 19.2 km - (Bang Na - Suvarnabhumi)

At the same time, if one of the section of the main line has not made any progress, if the situation changes then "JICA" will review it and cut it out from the master plan as well, such as the red line, Hua Lamphong - Mahachai.
