I learned from the radio yesterday that Bangkok's "Stonehenge" will be demolished soon to pave the way for the construction of the Airport Rail Link extension from Phaya Thai to Don Mueang and for the Red Line commuter rail system.
According to the news report, some 500 concrete pillars, which are part of the unfinished Hopewell mass transit project, will be demolished, especially the above-ground section, as they are not safe. Some beams near Wat Samian Nari collapsed last year.
If the demolition really happens, I will be very happy to see these ugly structures gone at long last.
