Eye on Ayutthaya for Bangkok electric railway

Eye on Ayutthaya for Bangkok electric railway :The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) is to study the extension of its Red Line from the Rangsit campus of Thammasat University in Pathum Thani province north of Bangkok to Ayutthaya that will then become a satellite town of the capital.

Soithip Trisuddhi, permanent secretary for transport, informed reporters of the development on Thursday. She said the SRT management would seek approval from the SRT board to conduct a feasibility study on the extension.
The move follows the National Environment Board’s approval on Wednesday for an environmental impact assessment of the Red Line’s extension from Rangsit area to the Thammasat campus.

“Mr Omsin (Chiwaphruek), the (SRT) board chairman, wants to start the feasibility study on the Red Line extension from Thammasat University to Ayutthaya. With the board’s approval, a contractor can be hired to conduct the study and do a preliminary design without having to wait for the completion of the previous extension section,” Mrs Soithip said.

She said the SRT would finish in two months the details of the extension from Rangsit to Thammasat University.
The planned extension sections of the Red Line will send Bangkok’s northbound electric train service from the Bang Sue station to Ayutthaya. Transport authorities plan to develop Bang Sue into a hub of mass transit systems of Bangkok.
