At 8:30 AM, on March 28th, 2024, Eastern Bangkok Monorail (EBM) Co Ltd., publicly revealed a recent incident regarding parts of the conductor rail from the Yellow Line electric train that were found scattered on the road between Kalantan station-Suan Luang Rama 9 Station, Bangkok.

According to EBM, parts of the Yellow Line’s conductor rail reportedly fell from the railway to the ground below, causing two vehicles and one motorbike to be damaged. However, there were no injuries reported.

The Yellow Line officers reportedly prepared public buses for all passengers and refunded their transportation fares accordingly.
