The first stage of the MRT construction on Charan Sanit Wong has provided a lot of local transport issues as the road was reduced to one lane at stages and contraflows at others. We are pleased to announce that this situation has dramatically improved with delays on the southbound side reduced back to normal levels (busy in the rush hour) and only a minor increase in times heading north on the approach to the marina house area. This delay is adding around 3-5 minutes to normal commuting times on this stretch as traffic works down from 3 lanes to 2 lanes.
During 2011 work started on Charan Sanit Wong to extend the MRT (metro) system in Bangkok. This work is due to be completed in 2015 to extend the MRT line that already runs from Hualamphong (main railway station) to Bang Sue (the future high speed rail terminus to China). The station list will be as follows (of interest/use to marina house):
