How can you get through it? Ask yourself

We made a field survey on this site six months ago. We’ve gathered useful information, all possibly available, regarding the Bangkok BTS Green Line South Extension and provided with critical recommendations to the government sectors and civil servants.

MRT Phet-cha-bu-ri Station, besides the insufficiency of elevators from the ground floor, the ticketing floor and the platform floor are also found nowhere for its existence.
