The Metropolitan Rapid Transit ( MRT ) Yellow Line’s service has been suspended since Thursday morning after some tracks were allegedly colliding in an accident that reportedly damaged three vehicles. No injuries have been reported.

Operator of the autonomous coach, Eastern Bangkok Monorail Co Ltd, reported parts of the wire bridge having fallen from the trail between the Kalantan and Si Udom facilities, according to Krungthep Turakij. No injuries were reported in the crash, which also involved two motorcycles and two vehicles.

The Golden Line’s social media channels just made the announcement that all channels ‘ services would be suspended as a result of the company’s efforts to fix the issues.

Because travellers were using the range during rush hour traffic to get to work, the expulsion came into effect before 9 am. Staff were seen assisting individuals as they walked along the trail as a coach was ordered to stop between the channels.

During the strange experience of walking along the trail, some people took the chance to take photos and videos.

Some fallen pieces were captured in images on social media.

Between Lat Phrao and Samrong, the Golden Series rail travels. The company was launched in July of last year.

Thursday’s event was the next mishap&nbsp, on the rail structure, from which a vehicle tumbled on Jan 2 and struck a vehicle on the road below. &nbsp,

In response, a decision was made to replace the ball-bearings on all Golden Series trains in order to ensure public safety.

A portion of wire bridge on the Pink Line rail broke free from its frame and fell onto a street in January, causing damage to some parked cars along Tiwanon Road in Nonthaburi.

North Bangkok Monorail Co. is the Pink Line’s controller. The organization and Eastern Bangkok Monorail are subsidiaries of BSR JV Consortium, a cooperative venture between three large SET- listed companies: BTS Group Holdings, with a 75 % shareholding, Sino- Thai Engineering and Construction, and Ratch Group, a main power producer.
