structure

The stations and track are built on a 9 meter wide viaduct, 12 meters above the road median. The structure comprises segmented concrete casts and was assembled span-by-span using dry joint and external post-tensioning within the gap of each segment. This method requires minimal construction time, ideal for the congested traffic environment of the downtown core. The viaduct support structure is made of cast concrete, 2 meters wide and 30 – 35 meters in length.

For the Silom Line extension from Tak Sin Bridge to Bang Wa ( Ratchaphruek-Phetchakasem), the cast-in–situ method is also used.
