The concrete pillars of the abandoned Hopewell mass transit project will be demolished for a new railway on the same route. 

End of the line: These concrete pillars and beams of the abandoned Hopewell mass transit project along northbound railway tracks in Bangkok will be dismantled soon to pave the way for the construction of the Red Line electric railway from Bang Sue to Rangsit of Pathum Thani. The picture was taken from a camera mounted on a remote-controlled helicopter. (Photo by Sithikorn Wongwudthianun)

The clearance of the pillars will cost about 200 million baht.
