The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s subsidiary Krungthep Thanakom said on Thursday (June 18) that the Gold Line monorail will be ready to operate in October as scheduled.

After taking delivery of one of the trains for the line, KT director Manit Techapichok said the monorail is 89 per cent completed and should be ready for commuters by October.

“Once the Covid-19 crisis is resolved, the work will be completed,” he added.

The monorail covers three stations – Krung Thonburi, Charoen Nakhon and Khlong San – and the fare charged will be Bt15 throughout. It is believed that more than 40,000 commuters will use the rail daily.

Manit said the monorail was a feeder linked to the BTS, buses in Khlong San area and boats running down the Chao Phraya. The monorail will also be linked to the train Red and Purple Lines, he added.
