Project Detail


The Initial System Project was a heavy rail, rapid transit system covering a route of 20 km. with 21 stations from Hua Lamphong via Huai Khwang Depot to Bang Sue. It provided transfer to the two existing mass transit projects, namely the BTS Project by the BMA and the Hopewell Project by the SRT. AEC provided assistance to Halcrow Asia Ltd. in undertaking the alignment study and preliminary design of the Initial System Project which at that time was considered to be an elevated structure, except for 700 m. at Hua Lamphong Station which was to be underground to enable future expansion.

As a separate contract, AEC was directly appointed by the Metropolitan Rapid Transit Authority to carry out the topographic, control and cadastral survey of the same route in support of the above mentioned preliminary design .
