Structure of Routes and Stations

  Stations > Design Principles (1/5)

  Design Principles  
  BTS stations are designed to avoid street-level congestion and underground infrastructure as well as preventing damage to the existing pavement and road surfaces. Most stations and track system are supported by a single-column structure. Each station is 150 meters in length and the distance between each station is 800 1,000 meters.

There are 2 types of stations :
1. Side Platform Station
Most BTS stations consist of two platforms at each side of the station, with 2 train tracks running through the center. This design works well through the city centre as it occupies the least amount of space and required less construction time.

2. Centre Platform
This type of station has a large platform in the center with tracks on either side. This design is more complex in terms of construction as the tracks need to bend outward when trains arrive at the station. BTS uses this design for the Siam Interchange Station to serve and streamline a higher passenger capacity when transiting between Sukhumvit and Silom Lines.
For the Sukhumvit Line Extension, the first new station at Samrong has also been designed as a Centre Platform type.

Each station has 3 levels.

1. Street Level
2. Concourse Level
3. Platform Level
