CityNews – The Office of Transport and Traffic Policy Plan (OTP), in collaboration with CMU, has held its third and final meeting to discuss the Light Rail Transit proposal and listen to the public’s opinions and suggestions before submitting it to the government for approval.

 

The OTP has proposed two plans for a Light Rail Transit system for Chiang Mai, one that goes underground in and around the old city and one that is at road level. There are three lines to both plans.

 

Plan A will take the trains underground around the old city, and will take 6 years to complete. The trains will travel at 30-35 km/h and will be on time as it will not be subject to road traffic and traffic lights. It will cost 100,000 million baht to complete and will break even in 2027.

 

Plan B will keep the trains at road level, and will take 3 years to complete. The trains will travel at 15-20 km/h and will be subject to obstructions on the roads and traffic lights. It will cost 30,000 million baht to complete and will break even in 2023.
