This is the old Lavalin bridge constructed for the mid 80s Lavalin Skytrain scheme which never came to fruition; http://www.angkor.com/2bangkok/2bang.../lavalin.shtml. It is some 20 yrs old.

At one stage it was thought that the bridge may be used for the south-western ext of the current Blue metro line (see the June 26-29 article and commentary by Khun Wisarut, http://www.2bangkok.com/2bangkok/Subway/news012.shtml) but the route will take a more westerly cross river direction.

The Purple line will eventually run north-south along the bridge alignment from Rattanakosin/Chinatown across the river to Wong Wian Yai. However, the first stage (Bang Sue to the NE) of the much delayed Purple line has only just been contracted with construction due to be completed by 2014.

The more important Bang Sue to Wong Wian Yai stage is more complicated as it will be mostly underground and more costly. It would make sense to use the Lavalin bridge but by then it will be some 30 yrs old and construction companies always like to inflate their budgets with extra work. (as we saw with the Airport line and the demolition of the old Hopewell pillars even though they were structurely sound).

In short, I really don't know but I somehow imagine that the foundation will be kept and the spans rebuilt.

I think the best way to get KSR from Suvarnabhumi Airport is still Airport Express Bus AE2 which final stops at KSR at(150 Baht), coz Airport Rail link (150 Baht also) will terminate at Makkasan CAT or Phaya Thai Station so you will need to get taxi or Bus to go to KSR again.
