The Structural Engineers at AIT Solutions, Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) visited the Mass Transit System Project in Bangkok on 25 May 2016 headed by Engr. Thaung Htut Aung, Deputy Projects Director and Engr. Keerati Tunthasawatana, Deputy Director, ACECOMS to gain first-hand experience in a construction project.
One of the agencies involved in the development of the rail transport network, the State Railway of Thailand (SRT), has implemented the construction of the Mass Transit System (Red Line) Project, Bang Sue-Rangsit Section since March 2013 and is expected to complete in the next four years.
The Mass Rapid Transit System Networks has three components: The Dark Red Line (Thammasat University’s Rangsit Campus-Maha Chao) that will serve passengers traveling from northern to southern Bangkok; The Light Red Line (Salaya-Hua Mark) that will run from east to west of Bangkok; and The Airport Rail Link (Don Mueang-Suvarnabhumi) that will connect the two airports.
Dr. Virach Rungrojsaratis, Senior Vice President, Unique Engineering and Construction Public Company Limited welcomed the AIT Solutions team and presented the project.
“The site visit is part of our engineers’ professional development program and we hope to conduct more site visits to some of our projects in the future,” shared Engr. Keerati.
