A much awaited contract has been signed – BTS trains the mass rapid system of Bangkok will be extended to Pathum Thani and Samut Prakan in order to reduce the traffic congestion in Phahonyothin area.
Thailand plans to be a developed nation by 2025, however, the mass rapid system and the traffic congestion due to no sky train available in areas connecting Bangkok the biggest city of Thailand to suburbs is a huge problem for Thais. This decision will help improve the traffic in housing areas of Phahonyothin area.
Thailand is making bold steps to improve the quality of life of people.
However, the government also has to make sure to maintain the cost of living which has been growing at a rapid rate since 2010. The cheapest ticket in BTS (sky train) is 15 baht which is expensive for many people living in Bangkok.
