Similar to the London Underground map, some geographic short cuts were likely made to make the map flow better.

Any updates on the roll out of the common ticket for BTS and MRT? Will SRT commuter lines be included (dark/light red lines, airport link)?

According to this report by Thairath Newspaper (Feb 27, 2017), Bidding for system installations is now underway by BMTA. They hope that the whole process would be completed within September which is the Transport Ministry's current deadline. 7 million Mangmoom cards (Spider card) will be issued in the first lot by June. Here's timeline:
Code:
April:               System installations contract awarded
May:                Contract signed
June:               Operational with BTS (Sukhumvit line), MRT (Blue and Purple lines) and Airport Link
September:       BMTA's buses (700-800 buses in the first lot; mostly non-air conditioned buses)
in 2018:           EXAT's expressways and Motorway 7 (Bangkok - Chonburi)
Other references: Common ticketing due for June launch, Spider card in BMTA's hands.

SRT Airport Rail Link HSR extension | 193.5 km

The Airport Rail Link will run at a speed of 160 km/h while in Bangkok, when leaving Lat Krabang station towards Suvarnabhumi Airport and onto Pattaya and Rayong the Airport Rail Link will run at a speed of 250 km/h.

The integration could down the costs from 152.5 billion to around 110-120 billion baht.

Will any of the existing sections of ARL be converted to 4-track sections to accommodate HSR or will it share track with the ARL City Line? Also, will the new HSR line actually serve Suvarnabhumi Airport or just Lad Krabang (for some reason I thought passengers at Suvarnabhumi would have to take a shuttle to Lad Krabang for the HSR service)?

Sharing the track with ARL and the signaling will have to be upgraded to accommodate HSR and new trains will be purchased that can accommodate a higher speed.

The idea is that the Airport Rail Link will replace the HSR eastern line and seamlessly connect three airports: Don Mueang, Suvarnabhumi and U-Tapao airport.
So basically it will be a really really long Airport Rail Link line with a speed of 160 km/h from Don Muang Airport to Lat Krabang and 200-250 km/h from Lat Krabang to Rayong.

30 years ago, myself and a Pattaya Hotelier/politician who was a Senator in the Government, came up with the idea of the HSR from Don Mueang Airport to Pattaya and the Eastern Seaboard via Suvarnabhumi Airport. This was his dream, unfortunately he died recently but it is nice to know that they have at last gone back to the original and sensible plan and his dream may at last be fulfilled.

As shown on the map, the HSR will not stop at Lad Krabang station and will stop at Suvarnabhumi Airport, which is in Lad Krabang District, before heading onwards to Pattaya and the Eastern Seaboard, Rayong and U-Tapao. There is no need to widen the track as suggested in this forum, as there is sufficient accommodation for the HSR trains to pass the City Line trains at each station. I also envisage that not all HSR trains will run all the way to the Eastern Seaboard with higher frequencies between Don Mueang and Suvarabumi Airports.
