Three electric train projects are pressing ahead though two are running behind schedule, caretaker Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt says.
The minister inspected the electric railway construction sites last week and found the Blue Line from Hua Lamphong to Bang Khae, and from Bang Sue to Tha Phra is 53% completed, 0.15% behind schedule.
The Green Line from Bearing to Samut Prakan is 22.6% completed, about 2% ahead of schedule. The Purple Line from Bang Sue to Bang Yai is 85% completed and 1.5% behind schedule. The line is the first of three links set to start operation in 2017.
