Integration of SRT Red Line and ARL
So I'm a bit confused by the SRT Red Line plans for Bang Sue-Hualamphong/Makkasan: is the plan to connect the new line to the current ARL corridor, or build an entirely separate set of tracks duplicating Phayathai-Makkasan?
The later. All rather confusing and silly but it will be a duplicate narrow gauge line with its own stations running adjacent to the airport line. There are a couple of renders in one of the threads.
