A section of Bangkok’s Pink Line railway that was damaged when a part of the conductor rail fell onto the road below will be fully repaired by the end of the month.

Surapong Laoha-Unya, director of the Northern Bangkok Monorail, has confirmed the work will be complete by the end of January. On December 24, several kilometres of aluminium conductor rail broke off, falling onto Tiwanon Road in the central province of Nonthaburi.

Train services from Nonthaburi Civic Centre Station to the Pak Kret Bypass Station had to be immediately suspended, while an investigation and repair work was carried out. The rail company says the parts needed for the repairs have been shipped and are expected to arrive by January 15.

Thai PBS World reports that while the Pink Line reopened for service on January 7, four stations have remained closed, while waiting for the replacement conductor rail.

The remainder of the service continues to operate every day, from 6am to midnight, with tickets discounted by 15% and ranging from 13 baht to 38 baht, until repairs are complete and the line is fully operational once more.
