MRTA moves forward with Phuket light rail

PHUKET: The Mass Rapid Transport Authority (MRTA) kept the ‘Phuket Mass Transit System’ project moving forward with a public meeting held in Phuket Town yesterday (Nov 12) to gain feedback from local residents about the project.


The project, also often called the Phuket Light Rail, will see a light-rail mass transit system connecting Tha Noon, just north of Phuket in Phang Nga, with Phuket International Airport and continuing down the island to Phuket Town and terminating at Chalong Circle in the south of the island.


The plan is to alleviate traffic along Thepkrasattri Rd, Phuket’s main transport artery running north-south through down the “spine” of the island.

If every time a Thai proposal uses the words "Smart" and "Hub" I get 1 Baht, I would be a millionaire.


Joking aside, why not start with a modern and comfortable bus service first? Maybe electric or hydrogen powered?

Is there enough demand for a rail system? Have they made any studies or questionings of the local population?
