The Red Line Mass Transit System Project is a planned commuter rail system to serve the Bangkok Metropolitan Region. Part of the Mass Rapid Transit Master Plan in Bangkok Metropolitan Region, it will consist of two lines, one (also referred to as the Dark Red Line) running from Thammasat University's Rangsit campus to Maha Chai in Samut Sakhon Province, and the other (Light Red Line) running from Sala Ya in Nakhon Pathom Province to Hua Mak in Bangkok, with both passing through Bang Sue which will act as a connecting hub to the MRT system. As of 2012, the Bang Sue – Taling Chan segment of the Light Red Line is under construction, and the Bang Sue – Rangsit segment of the Dark Red Line is being prepared for construction bidding. Most of the railway will run alongside existing national railway tracks, eventually replacing them. Segments running through inner-city areas will be elevated, and the system will be electrified by overhead lines. The system is to be owned and is being developed by the State Railway of Thailand. Since the Red Lines run roughly along the alignment of the failed Hopewell Project, they have been described as a "Hopewell revival".
Famous quotes containing the words lines and/or red:
“There they lived on, those New England people, farmer lives, father and grandfather and great-grandfather, on and on without noise, keeping up tradition, and expecting, beside fair weather and abundant harvests, we did not learn what. They were contented to live, since it was so contrived for them, and where their lines had fallen.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“O my luves like a red, red rose Thats newly sprung in June;
O my luves like the melodie Thats sweetly playd in tune.”
—Robert Burns (17591796)
