Was there ever a plan to build a structure on top of the Mo Chit depot? Additional train storage? Car parking? I was always curious about that given the exposed rebar on the roof.

The current depot at Mo Chit used to be part of the "Bangkok Terminal" project, where a large complex of commercial development can be built directly above it.

The old plan






Now after Bang Sue Grand station is getting constructed here. The plan changed and also the name. It's now called Bang Sue Complex.





And SRT Km. 11 at the other end of the complex.

The Mass Transit lines including the BTS, MRT, SRT Airport Link and Citi-Line are Standard Gauge: 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in)

However, the Dark & Light Red SRT lines are 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 3⁄8 in) metre gauge

Phaya Thai Interchange station with the future ARL extension and Red line missing link visualized.

Both Airport Rail link extension (21.8 km) and Red line missing link extension (25.5 km) will be under construction in September.

24th February 2016: The news is that the BTS Skytrain is out of operation due to technical difficulties. However no news in the Bangkok post or Nation, only on Thai TV. Sounds like a problem with the Wi-fi system that controls the trains and equipment. Last time it was caused by the installation of platform doors. Anyone know the actual story?

The sky train hiccup due to track faults is expected to remain the whole day today, said BTS president Anat Apapirom said on Wednesday.

Engineers will fix the faults tonight, he said.

The problem started at about 6am near Chidlom station, making it decide to adjust the route. The measures resulted in congestion and commuter chaos at many BTS stations.

The BTS system this morning adjusted the Sukhumvit line to avoid the faults, Anat said.

The temporary routes using today will see the service in Sukhumvit line separated into two sections; Mo Chit-Siam-Mo Chit and Bearing-Siam- Bearing.

Flood problem is not a concern since it will have a pump to pump water up to the top.

The reason it is below ground (dry canal) is to avoid intersection with cars, and since this is an inner city area, the line are not allowed to be elevated.


This clips explain why BKK floods in the monsoon season (with Eng sub).



The giant drainage tunnels that exist and those that are u/c.

Those are commuters line, they are built so that the track can be shared with other trains: short distance and long distance trains.

BMTA Buses

BMTA is repairing the current fleet of 671 old buses in the first phase and 500 more in the second phase. The repair of each old bus will take about 40 days but after that it can be used for up to 15 years.

Old buses will be fitted with GPS, CCTV & Station Announcements

The first bus has already been repaired and will be equipped with four security cameras, an audio bus station announcement system and a Global Positioning System (GPS).

In the first phase it is expected to take a year to fix all the old buses.

The BMTA will avoid any interruption to bus services during the repairs.

The BMTA also plans to install smart bus stops that can automatically announce bus routes and arriving buses.
