BMA Gold Line

The Gold Line is a planned monorail line, part of Bangkok's rapid transit system. Not part of the current MRT Master Plan, the line was proposed in July 2015,[1] it was approved by the cabinet in 2016,[2] The first phase is expected to open in 2018, with a further phase opening in 2023. It will connect Krung Thonburi BTS station with Prajadhipok Road in Thon Buri District, a total of 2.68 km. Development of the line is the responsibility of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, with a budget of 3.8 billion Thai baht,[3] though it is expected that mall developer Siam Piwat will fund the development cost[4] as it will connect to the company's new ICONSIAM complex. In future the line could be extended to Asiatique The Riverfront, a large waterfront retail and entertainment complex. The environment impact assessment was expected to be completed in December 2016.[5]
