Orange Line rail route changed

- +

The Mass Rapid Transit Authority (MRTA) is shifting a section of the planned Orange Line electric rail service to Rama IX Road from its previous route along Thiam Ruam Mit Road. 

The route change is designed to avoid construction along Thiam Ruam Mit Road and is expected to serve more commuters, MRTA governor Yongsit Rojsrikul said on Tuesday.

Amending the route will mean that the railway will start at the Thailand Cultural Centre on Thiam Ruam Mit Road and run along part of Rama IX Road to Ramkhamhaeng Road, Ramkhamhaeng University and Bang Kapi.
