Bangkok to open 4 new Green Line stations June 4

Bangkok BTS Skytrain

Four new stations on the northern extension of the BTS Green Line will open June 4.

City Hall open four more stations between BTS Mo Chit and Saphan Mai–Khu Khot for public tests before full service commences later this year.

The four stations will extend the northbound service of the BTS Skytrain, which currently terminates at Kasetsat University Station, to Royal Forest Department station, Bang Bua Station, and 11th Infantry Regiment Station, before terminating at Wat Phra Sri Mahathat Station. The opening ceremony of the public trial will be presided over by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-Cha.

Also in early June, the BMA is scheduled to open the Chao Phraya Sky Park, an elevated park constructed between lanes of the road over Phra Pok Klao Bridge across the Chao Phraya River. This 280-meter-long sky park will allow the general public to walk or cycle across the river between Thonburi and the Phra Nakhon side of Bangkok.

Final inspections of the park will be made on May 29, while the official opening ceremony is expected to take place in late June.
