Spray painting incident won’t be repeated, say skytrain officials

Authorities responsible for Bangkok’s skytrain have announced tightened security has been completed that will guard against a repeat of an embarrassing incident in 2013 when two foreigners managed to infiltrate a repair yard in Rama 9 and spray paint a train.

Questions about the security of the travelling public were raised at the time of the incident and then again on Monday after the video started being shared on Thai social media sites over the weekend by people claiming the graffiti had been done recently.

Skytrain officials said that fences including barbed wire had been thoroughly upgraded with a much better security system in place to keep people out.

In addition to measures within the repair yard patrols in motor vehicles and on motorcycles in the area around the yard had been introduced around the clock with special emphasis on the period of midnight to 6am.
