Red Line trial run set for March 26


Work on the Red Line commuter rail project on the Bang Sue-Taling Chan and Bang Sue-Rangsit sections as well as the Bang Sue Grand Station is not yet complete, it was revealed at a recent meeting attended by Transport Minister Saksayam Chidchob

The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) is working on details of additional issues, such as the transfer of passengers from Bangkok railway station to Bang Sue Grand Station, managing commercial areas within Bang Sue Central Station and the site of 12 stations along the railways’ track, and the auction of nine land plots around Bang Sue Grand Station for nine plots, etc. The next meeting on March 4 will discuss these issues again.

The SRT laid out a timeline for the opening of the service in three periods. On March 26, the SRT will allow people to join the trial service in some stations just for one day after which it will be closed for further testing of the system.

On July 28, there will be a soft opening for citizens, and commercial operations will begin at the end of November.
