The Pink Line rail service, between Khae Rai and Min Buri,will open to the public for trial runs in November, ahead of its official launch on December 18th, Pichet Kunadhamraks, director-general of the Department of Rail Transport said today (Wednesday).

During an inspection of the project today, he said that construction is now 98.37% complete and is ready for trial runs next month.

Construction of the entrances and exits at Chaengwattana through to National Telecom stations, which was delayed, is now under way, with the escalators and elevators being installed and tested, he said, adding that there will be a sky walk to link the station with the government complex.

The Pink Line will connect to the Purple Line at the government complex station and passengers will be able to transfer via a moving walkway, said Pichet, adding that the Pink Line will, in the future, link to the Brown Line, running between Khae Rai and Lam Salee.
