Project Detail



The purpose of this project is to produce a conceptual plan for the implementation of the Mass Rapid Transit Master Plan (MRT Master Plan).  The MRT Master Plan includes extensions to the existing MRT project along with new MRT lines which together will provide efficient, safe, regular and reliable movement of passengers and relieve traffic congestion in the whole of the Greater Bangkok Area.

The objectives of the Conceptual MRT Implementation Master Plan Project Services are to formulate definitive horizontal and vertical alignments and recommend construction methods for the new MRT lines identified in the MRT Master Plan and to produce mandatory stipulations, requirements and design guidelines for these lines.  The project will not include the existing MRT systems, except where their design has been changed in accordance with the Government’s desire for only underground systems in the inner 25 square km. core area of Bangkok.
