Construction of the Bangkok Elevated Road and Train System started back in 1990. The first phase was a north-south line from Hua Lamphong to Don Mueang International Airport. No feasibility study was done and there were many accusations of corruption. Work was first suspended in 1992 and then halted altogether during the 1997 financial crisis. At the time it was only about 10% completed with mainly pillars. This gave it the nickname of “Bangkok’s Stonehenge”. Now finally these pillars and beams are being removed piece by piece at an estimated cost of 200 Million Baht. They are making way for the Red Line.
