Skyline Bangkok
The breath-taking rise of Bangkok to become a leading business center in Asia created a basic challenge for the city to ensure the mobility of millions of people. Before 1999, people used to take a bus, motorcycle or taxi for almost 80 per cent of their daily travel needs. This created congestion in large parts of Bangkok's infrastructure, making traffic jams a daily occurrence. The travel speed in downtown Bangkok was usually less than ten kilometers per hour. This not only affected the mobility of the commuters but had also an impact on the quality of life. Without a working rapid transit and mainline traffic concept, Thailand's capital was bound to grind to a standstill.

First metro for Bangkok's Green Line rolls out the factory

The exterior design is a bold new interpretation of the established BTS design language. A black, horizontal band incorporating the side windows extends along the full length of the train. This graphic element features a peak in each door area, re-interpreting the established window shape in a dynamic and contemporary fashion. Thanks to well-positioned blue and red livery bands below and above the window zone, the visual identity of BTS is perceivable from any viewing angle and the trademark colors also remain clearly visible when the elevated train is viewed from ground level.

The cab area sports three-dimensionally sculpted surfaces, further enhancing the prominent graphics. Pointed lines give the front end a proud and determined look. The emergency door incorporates the BTS logo. Visually striking lighting areas are an integral part of the cab's design. The concept features LED technology. Each lighting element is able to change the lighting color from white to red, depending on the train's operating direction.

Siemens and Bozankaya have developed an interior design which combines high passenger capacities with a spacious, inviting and friendly ambience. Continuous handrails meet the highest ergonomic standards, while also reflecting the train's flowing exterior design. The flooring provides a visual distinction between entrance and seating/standing areas by means of different colors, thus improving passenger flow. Draught screens separating the areas feature a prominent BTS logo. Each seating area features seven adjacent seats. Wheelchair areas are easily identifiable by pictograms incorporated in the flooring. The standing areas now also feature perch seats.

First metro for Bangkok's Green Line rolls out the factory

The first metro of 22 new four-car trains for Bangkok's Green Line extension has been manufactured and is ready for shipment to Thailand. Production of the train at the Bozankaya factory in Ankara, Turkey, began in April 2017. Today, just fourteen months later, Siemens, Bozankaya and Bangkok Mass Transit System Public Company (BTSC) are celebrating the roll-out of the first train. The metro train, weighing 140 tons, will begin its journey from the factory to the Turkish port of Borusan-Gemlik at the end of June. The entire distance from the factory to the train's final destination is around 15,000 kilometers and will take about six weeks. Arrival at the Thai port of Laem Chabang is scheduled for August 2018.
