Line to connect with Phuket International Airport
As an option being considered to ease traffic congestion on the popular Thai tourist destination of Phuket, the island’s authorities are planning a light rail system.
According to a report in the Bangkok Post, the light rail system comprises 20 stations across its entire 60km length and connects with Phuket International Airport. Development would cost around 24 billion baht (€650 million), Phuket’s governor Nisit Chansomwong was quoted as saying.
The project has already been green-lighted in three public hearings. If the budget for the light rail system’s development is approved it will be completed in 2021.
