BTS Lat Phrao skytrain station opens in mid August 2019
Good news for people who want to visit CentralPlaza Lat Phrao. Starting from 3pm on 9th August 2019, the Green Line of the skytrain will be extended by one stop from Mo Chit (Chatuchak Park) to Ha yaek Lat Phrao. This is the five-way intersection in front of CentralPlaza. The service will initially be free. In addition, four more stations will be open for service in December of this year. Namely Phahonyothin 24 Station, Ratchayothin Station, Sena Nikhom Station and Kasetsart University station. The remaining eleven stations on the Green line extension are due to open for service late next year. The last station is at Khu Khot in Pathum Thani province. For those of you hoping to go to Don Mueang airport on the Skytrain, I am afraid you are out of luck. This route goes up the eastern side of the airport along Phahonyothin Road. The entrance to the airport is on the western side.

I am curious why the name is transliterated from Thai and not translated to English. We have “Victory Monument” and “National Stadium” so why not “Lat Phrao Intersection”?
Richard, thanks for this .
