My girlfriend said she read an article about the subway plan in a Thai magazine that was published this month. She said a high ranking city manager was interviewed about the proposed plan. According to the article, the city manager stated the electrical lines have been laid and they are going to go forward with it. I think it is a great idea if it happens.

A tram line is possible for the grey line shown along Chang Klan. Road's wide enough. Probably most of the lines also, if you completely ban road side parking along the routes.

I know we have a mayor, but how many ranks of city managers do we have ????

Not really sure what electrical lines being laid has to do with a subway. If it is to be an electrical one would they not need the tunnels?

Or is the whole plan just put all the wiring underground

I think this is all about land price speculation.

I don't know how many city managers there are. The city is subdivided into four wards. There are 16 sub districts, which are further subdivided into 77 villages. They could have a dozen or more managers, lol.

In the 2006 plan the network would be underground in the inner city and then run above ground. Only the red and the blue lines would be built initially.

Tesco is giving away all their TVs if you believe in the subway system....looking at how they dug a small sewerage hole outside riverside on Sunday it will take them 555 years to build this subway

My understanding was that the Songtaew Mafia has been stifling any attempt to create a half decent public transport system in Chiang Mai for years and years. Thailand's second city and no mass transit. Embarrassing.

Incorrect. There is a bus service although like many things in life, it could be better. The important part of the message though is that there is no mafia, despite how much people like to use that word when describin things in Thailand!

I think they use the word so when they perceive them selves as being ripped off they can say the mafia ripped me off not this Thai guy beat me out of 10 baht on a songthow ride.cheesy.gifcheesy.gif
