Bangkok Governor M.R. Sukhumbhand Paribatra has inspected the route where the grey-line monorail will be built. It will run from Vatcharapol to Rama 9 Bridge and connect with the BTS at Thong Lor station.
According to the governor, the grey line is only the first in a series of monorail construction projects the BMA hopes to complete over the next few years.
At this stage, he said the BMA will request a budget of 20 billion baht for the project which is expected to complete in less than 2 years, adding that when completed, it will have the ability to facilitate up to 1 million commuters a day.
