Six Golden Line stations were temporarily closed on Saturday as the rail operator deals with two situations that have afflicted service.

According to a notice posted on the MRT Yellow Line Twitter page, teach routines for service between the Lat Phrao and Si Kritha facilities and Si Iam to Samrong channels were being changed.

Six facilities — Hua Mak, Kalantan, Si Nut, Srinakarin 38, Suan Luang Rama IX and Si Udom— are partially closed, the recognize said.

At the D Phrao 83 place, passengers were advised to shift trains to Si Kritha.

Following an incident on Thursday where some pieces of the rail fell from the trail between the Kalantan and Si Udom facilities, the rail owned by the Metropolitan Rapid Transit Authority resumed restricted support on Friday. Although there were several broken cars, no injuries were reported.

The operator of the Yellow Line, Eastern Bangkok Monorail Co Ltd ( EBM ), announced on Friday that an initial investigation revealed a finger plate had slipped from its position as the train passed, causing the plate and other debris to fall.

The operator claimed that while technicians worked to restore the damaged rail and equipment, service was resumed on Friday with adjustments made to teach frequencies. EBM even extended the passenger discount by 20 % until the company was back to normal.

Soon after the company resumed, however, the series experienced another problem. A record switch on the program malfunctioned, causing a strength outage&nbsp, at the Hua Mak place.

As a result, companies from Hua Mak to Si Iam were suspended, leaving just two parts — from Lat Phrao to Si Kritha and from Si Iam to Samrong — running.

The Golden Line services between Samrong and Lat Phrao was launched in July of last year.

The incidents came after a vehicle struck a car on the side of the road on January 2 and fell from the increased track.

In order to ensure public safety, the ball-bearings on all Golden Series trains were ordered to be replaced.

A portion of wire bridge on the Pink Line rail broke free from its plate only a month prior to that incident and fell onto Tiwanon Road in Nonthaburi, causing damage to some parked cars.

Both EBM and the Pink Line controller Northern Bangkok Monorail Co 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.
