Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA) has postponed its construction plans for four routes in its mass rapid transit (MRT) projects.


Rithika Suparat, acting governor for MRTA, said that the four routes are the Pink, Yellow, western Orange and southern Purple lines.

MRTA reported the progress of the MRT projects’ construction plans to its board on August 21.

Construction plans of both the 34.5-kilometre, Bt47-billion Pink Line, Khae Rai-Minburi, and the 30.4-kilometre, Bt46-billion Yellow Line, Lat Phrao-Samrong, will be postponed by six months from last June to December this year.

The proposed 16-kilometre, Bt109.34-million western Orange Line, Bang Khun Non-Thailand Cultural Centre, will be postponed from last July to April 2018 for a study into public-private participation (PPP).

The planned auction of the 23.6-kilometre, Bt101.11-million southern Purple Line will be postponed from this October to December.

The board also approved a draft bill for the MRTA to proceed with its MRT projects in Chiang Mai, Phang Nga and Phuket provinces.
