The Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA) is expected to call for bids to construct the Purple Line southern extension in February next year, said governor Pakapong Sirikantaramas.

Construction of the extension from Tao Poon to Rat Burana is expected to start in September 2021 and take six years to complete at a cost of Bt124.959 billion.

The project will be financed by a public-private partnership.

Of the total cost, Bt80 billion will be for civil works, Bt16 billion for land expropriation and Bt23 billion for the train system.
