Light rail train for Phuket
The Transport permanent secretary Mr.Chartchai Thipsunawee has recently unveiled details of a 60 kilometers light rail tram which will be constructed between the airport to Chalong intersection in Muang district of Phuket. Mr Chartchai said the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA) will be commissioned to supervise the project. He said the tram with a speed of 100 km/h will have 23 stations along its route. Planners were deciding whether there will be a special lane for the tram or if it will share lanes with other vehicles.
The stations will include Phuket International Airport, Thalang and Koh Kaew and the second provincial bus terminal.
