- ICONSIAM will provide the money for construction and signaling (Also the one who proposed this line)
- EIA will be given for approval at the end of March. After EIA is approved, construction will take 20 months.
- Passenger forecast for G1 station is 36,000 people, G2 station is 49,000 people and 26,000 people for G3 station.
- Currently the project has been given to the Committee for the Management of Land Traffic for approval.

Anyone know when the rolling stock contract for the Blue Line Extension will be awarded? Seems like it is taking forever.

The extension has to be given to PPP board for approval to run the train first in April, before any rolling stock contract can be awarded.
BEM will again be the one who will run the train. The extension will be operational in 2018.

Here's how the train will run after the extension is completed.

It's quite common. Just like the Toei Ōedo Line in Tokyo.



And this line in London.




This is the interchange station, Tha Phra.

The air conditioning system of Bangkok Metro is really cold. I love it.

Beats the scorching heat and humidity of the BTS Skytrain

I'm worry about overall load of structure and tension from trains - will it stand still perfectly?

It should be fine, since Bang Sue Grand Station also has tracks stacked on top of each other.


Pillars for Don Mueang Station are now up.

SRT Dark Red line - (26 km) - 50%
