It was exactly one year ago that I first reported that the BTS had started to put in place safety barriers on the platform at Siam (see tweet below). Other countries have these already and so I wasn’t surprised that we would be getting some too. After all, the platforms at the more popular stations such as BTS Siam are very crowded during rush. It is always worrying that someone will fall onto the electric tracks. However, a year has passed and these safety barriers have still not been turned on. People are starting to talk as to whether they were put there for the safety of passengers or just for the advertising space. What do you think?
