They will probably need to up the frequency on line 4 I guess.
Will there be a name change for line 3? Since they can't have the same name for two separate lines.

Line 11 extension construction completed, station cleaning up to be finished by Aug 20

Line 11 west extension to Suzhou (Huaqiao): 3 stations, 6 km
Line 11 east extension to Pudong: 12 stations, 22km

I guess it'll open by the end of August or beginning of September.


Xujiahui station exit 19

That's quite a crazy looking structure, there! Are there many two line interchanges above ground like that in Shanghai?

ditto. It looks easy for a cross-platform interchange arrangement.

51.6 km for line 16? Given the small amount of stations, it looks like this will be more like a suburban line?

Why should line 16 be metro and line 22 be suburban railway, and not both metros or both suburban railways?

Line 22 is using existing rail and Line 16 is the fresh built line.

Line 16 is a fully grade separated line built from scratch (think Tsukuba Express)
Line 22 is a service overlaid on existing nation railway tracks (JR)

That's a very interesting picture. I've always dreamt that Shanghai could boast some of what Tokyo can: trains seen in different directions with interchanges at different levels, just like cars on the roads.

how long will be the trains on line 16? What type?

And a question about line 11. As I know, the rolling stock there now is Siemens trains equal to those on line 4. What rolling stock will be purchased as the addition to serve the extension. Will that be the same or something new?

I see that the stock on line 16 will be totally different from all what Shanghai metro has, including that on line 13 even.
