Transport Minister: No project overlap

- +

The government's planned megaprojects under the two-trillion-baht infrastructure loan bill will not overlap with existing projects under fiscal 2013, Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt said on Monday. 

However, he said, the Ministry of Transport has requested money from the fiscal budget to finance the BTS sky train's purple line connecting Bang Sue and Bang Yai and green line connecting Mochit and Saphan Mai. Both lines are infrastructure overhaul projects.

Mr Chadchart explained that he made the request due to the Finance Ministry's proposal to change the loan method during the final loan period of the purple line sky train project.
