Bangkok Orange Line Construction Contracts Signed

Bangkok Orange Line Construction Contracts Signed :The Thai Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs Somkid Jatusripitak presided over the signing of contracts for construction of the Bangkok Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Orange Line on 9 February 2017. It is hoped that the new line will help reduce road traffic congestion in the metropolitan area of Ramkhamhaeng Road, Rama IX Road, Ratchaprarop Road, Phetchaburi Road and Ratchadamnoen Road.

The 22.57 km long line, connecting the Thailand Cultural Centre to the Eastern district of Min Buri, will have 17 stations (7 elevated and 10 underground). Currently planned to open early in 2023, the line will be constructed by a joint venture of CH Karnchang, Sino-Thai Engineering & Construction, Italian-Thai Development and Unique Engineering & Construction.

Stations (from West to East) will be at:

1.Thailand Cultural Centre (interchange with the MRT Blue line)
2.MRTA
3.Pradit Manutham
4.Ramkhamaeng 12
5.Ramkhamaeng (University)
6.Ratchamangala
7.Hua Mak
8.Lum Sali
9.Si Burapha
10.Khlong Ban Ma
11.Sammakorn
12.Nom Klao
13.Rat Phatthana
14.Min Phatthana
15.Kheha Ramkhamhaeng
16.Min Buri
17.Suwinthawong

Expectations are that the line will be eventually prolonged from Thailand Cultural Centre to Bang Khun Non in the West, where passengers will be able to interchange with the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) Light Red Line.

Bangkok, the capital and most populous city of Thailand, counts 15 million inhabitants living in the metropolitan area.
