Official map by OTP that includes phase II mass transit lines (gold line, grey line, lrt and possibly brown line) will come out sometimes later this year (no date is given on when).

Did SRT remove Pradiphat station from their plan?
Pradiphat station never made it to the plan.

This is the route and station for the red line missing link.

Pradipat station never be on the list as it is on the ramp zone - the transition from elevated track to underground track - while Samsen station remains as the pressing demands from Army which OTP and SRT NEVER refuse as there are Army departments around Samsen station - this is also the dropping point to Si Yan and those who live around Pradiphat road and there is Bus Route 9 at Samsen station

Sukhumvit Line = Light Green or Dark Green?

Can we have a definite answer to which of the statements below is correct:

Sukhumvit Line with north and south extensions = Light Green line, Silom Line = Dark Green line

or

Sukhumvit Line with north and south extensions = Dark Green line, Silom Line = Light Green line

List of sources that use Sukhumvit Line = Light Green line:
  • mrta.co.th/en/service/service.php
  • BTS Group's currently operating service route map on their web site.
  • Fare signs at currently operating BTS stations. e.g. mapa-metro.com/images/bts-bangkok/bts-map-bangkok-large.jpg
  • Google Maps
  • SkyscraperCity forum members


List of sources that use Sukhumvit Line = Dark Green line:
  • mrta.co.th/en/index.php#pricing (large size: mrta.co.th/en/images/map-eng.jpg)
  • BTS Group's latest earnings presentation (page with route map: imgur.com/KJNNjSl)
  • News articles

The wikipedia page uses both in different parts of the page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_Rapid_Transit_Master_Plan_in_Bangkok_Metropolitan_Region


Have MRTA and BTS Group switched to using Sukhumvit Line = Dark Green line? Is there any official word on this issue?

Timeline
- BTS Group use dark green for Silom line and light green for Sukhumvit line.
- OTP does the opposite. Light green for Silom line and Dark green for Sukhumvit line in their map.
- MRTA follows OTP's line coloring.
- BTS Group made the change and follows OTP's coloring in their recent map.

Thai forum and Thai facebook groups follows the original BTS coloring in order not to cause confusion, when people post updates on the line.

To answer, both are correct, but it doesn't affect the public, since Thais don't call BTS lines by their color, but always use their real name instead: Rot Fai Fah (Skytrain) following with the name of the lines: Sai Silom (Silom line) and Sai Sukhumvit (Sukhumvit line).
Blue line also has a name. It's called Chaloem Ratchamongkhon line, but Thais call it Rot Fai Tai Din (Subway).
ARL is just called Airport Rail Link.

New BTS skytrain EMUs that will be ordered. Siemens on the left (22 sets) and CRRC on the right (24 sets and still keeping the old look). The 46 sets 4-car formation EMUs will take two and a half year to make and will arrive in 2018.


http://www.prachachat.net/news_detai...id=1463573330#


For the BTS Light Green Line South Extension, Samrong station will open for test run at the end of the year and the station will be open for the public at the beginning of 2017. The whole extension is estimated to be in service in 2018-2019.

Here is another source of the news about 24 sets of four car formation EMU from CRRC Changchun and 22 sets of four car formation EMUs from Siemens with total price of 10.918 Billion Baht to be delivered from early 2018 to 2020 - test run to Samrong station (station between Thepharak road and Poochao Samingphrai road (the road to Southern Bangkok power plant and a ferry pier to downtown Phra Padaeng) in December 2016 before the actual opening in early 2017

For 24 sets of CRRC Changchun, it is for Mochit - Saphan Mai - Khoo Khot section which is now under construction - 21 sets for actual use while the other 3 are spare sets to deal with rising number of passengers

For 22 sets of Siemens assembled by Bonzankaya, 15 sets will be assigned to Bearing - Samut Prakarn which is also under construction - with Samrong station will be opened in 2017 to give the real relieve for those who live around Samrong area, Thepharak area and Poochao Saming Phrai area with lesser extend to those who live in Phra Padaeng city and Pak Nam city.
The other 7 set will serve existing Lines to give the real relieve as BTS Skytrain has become more packed like sardine cans or even Yamanote Ring line
http://www.ryt9.com/s/iq05/2423043

Now, we have learnt that 22 set of Rolling stocks from Siemens have been assembled by Bozankaya of Turkey
