    Isn’t it just slightly odd that the 90% completed line as well as the 6% completed line are all due to open in 2017?

    Is that a sign of some weird political game being played?

    Also, the (light red?) line track from Bang Sue to Taling Chan is basically completed along with stations (the ancient trains use the new tracks), but not opened, and not mentioned.

    It’s funny how different lines in the mass transit system use different gauges (standard for BTS/MRT/Airport Link, narrow for the Taling Chan line). Not just due to different companies — SRT itself will operates lines with different gauges (Airport Link and new lines).
