It seemed like just yesterday they were killing each other and living in straw huts in rice paddies. Today, they are building a metro. I guess we'll have to ditch yet another sterotype. Thank goodness it's for a good cause - a shiny, new metro.
The starter line of this Phenomenahl new elevated metro will run 34 km and serve 47 stations. The project ,already approved, will use rubber tires so as to be better at sneaking up on traitors. Some sources also claim that the rolling stock will be made of bamboo in order to save on costs.
A tram study is also in the works.
