Just over a year since its last major revamp, the 23.5km Suvhanabhumi airport bike lane, Sky Lane, is set to close down for seven more months of renovations as of Apr 11.

In a press conference held today, representatives from the Airports of Thailand Public Company and SCB Bank stated that the new space, which should reopen by November, will include bigger and better facilities to better accomodate the 2,000-3,000 people that use the lane on weekdays and 5,000-10,000 on weekends.

The improvements will include: additional bike lanes to welcome more cyclists and reduce risk of accidents, a bigger carpark that can hold 3,500 cars along with a direct path from the carpark to the bike lanes, more medical stops, more rest stops along the lane and improved quality of the jogging tracks.

On top of this, the space will welcome an indoor "Bike Center," complete with a food court, bike equipment and repair stores, convenience stores and several commercial shops.

Join the final bike ride (for now) around Sky Lane on Apr 8-9, when bikers can also expect special events and booths selling Sky Lane merchandise.

Open daily 6am-6pm. Suvarnabhumi International Airport, 999 Moo 1, Nong Prue, Samut Prakarn. skylanethailand.com

Here’s a closer look at what’s coming up in the next few weeks.
