I'm the citizen in Guangzhou so I could tell you that line 6 eastern extension( also called line 6 phrase two) and line 7 (phrase one) will probably open in 2016 . But line 4 southern and Guangfo line extension (Kuiqilu~Dongping) will open in late 2017

I'm willing to share pics about Guangzhou metro if I can upload attachments...

Are Qingsheng metro station and Qingsheng HSR station not at the same location?

Looks like one is on top of the other. Or am I reading that wrong?

Public deserves detailed explanations of mega projects
25 December 2015
China Daily



GUANGZHOU, capital of South China's Guangdong province, is reportedly reviewing the plan to build 15 new subway lines prior to 2030 at a cost nearly 500 billion yuan ($77 billion). Beijing News calls for proper public scrutiny and participation in the plan to make sure the project is both viable and properly managed:

Of course, Guangzhou's construction of the biggest ever subway system, if it goes as planned, may greatly alleviate not only congestion on the roads but also public concerns about urban management. However, any grand urban planning project requires in-depth research, targeted assessments and policies that take into account public opinions and involve the public's participation.

That being said, there are doubts about Guangzhou's subway construction plan that need to be addressed, and residents' opinions need to be carefully listened to and heeded.

How the local governments involved will solicit and use funds, as well as how they will repay the huge debts to be expected, should be made perfectly clear to the public in a responsible manner.

Universally known as money consuming and slow to produce returns, subway construction is not feasible simply through the sales of the land, which is why such missing information in the introduction to Guangzhou's unprecedented subway expansion has worried many.

As an advanced first-tier city in China, Guangzhou is supposed to enroll private capital in major urban infrastructure projects, instead of "considering the possibility of using private capital when necessary". This is to both relieve the financial burden on the local government and make better use of idle money.

In fact, subway construction is not only about a modern city's future development and its residents' well-being, it is also a reflection of a local government's determination and wisdom in the face of challenges. The Guangzhou government, therefore, should think proactively and prevent the will of a few officials from spoiling the decision-making process.

On New Years Eve the Guangzhou Metro reached a new daily ridership record of 8.79 million. Several lines reached new daily highs:

Line 1: +2 million
Line 3: +2 million
Line 5: 1.335 million
Line 6: 822,000
Guangfo Line: 274,000

Source

It's amazing how hard they are working these lines. Line 1 is less than 20km long and hauled over 2 million people in a day. Line 3, while much longer, is moving the same amount on lower capacity 6 car B size trains. Line 5 graced with a last minute upgrade to 6 car L type trains during construction still had to move way over 1 million people. Then there is that stupid Line 6 sporting light rail sized train sets most likely collapsing under its +800,000 ridership. Possibly a glimpse of Line 6's future when the eastern extension opens.

Siemens trains (A1) of line1 in Xilang Depot

photo by @Daniel尤

Xilang Depot is the depot of line 1 , and it is a major maintain center of A type train which running on line 1/2/8 .
A3 which running on both line 1 and line 2 , made by bombardier , are at the deep end of the pic .


You can clearly notice the "claw" logo on her head , the logo of Guangzhou metro , imply that Guangzhou also called "羊城" (the City of Rams)
A panel used for emergency to let passengers leave the train is at the middle of her face. It could be laid down when needed .







Driving cab . A1 can automatically running with driver . So the driver just take the responsibility of opening and closing the door , also deal with the emergency.


The surface of the train is so clean that it just like a mirror. This batch of trains were made in 1996~1997 , 21 trains in total .


I suppose the author of these pics is a staff in Xilang Depot.

However, this will change when they build line 10. That line will run from Xilang to Tiyu Xilu via Zhongda, and take over line 3 to Tianhe Keyunzhan. Afterwards, line 3 will run as a single route from Jichang Bei to Panyu Guangchang and Haibang.

The Haizhu tram. What is beyond me, is why they add an 1 if they aren't planning more lines in the area (AFAIK).

They are planning more lines.

A branch loop off the existing Haizhu tram.



A southern Haizhu Island Tram line



In addition, there is rumblings of a Tram Line on the north shore of the Pearl River along the Linjiang Road.

Kengkou station(坑口站) of line 1

Photoed by -CNAurora-

There are only 2 stations on the ground level in Guangzhou Metro system . Xilang (西朗) and Kengkou(坑口)in line 1.

A Siemens train is waiting departure , I like that yellow.




Bombardier train also operate on line 1 , which was purchased for growing number of passengers.


Together with Siemens train . It is rare to find such a good place to take photos of Guangzhou Metro .


At this angle , the train seems to be short , but it has a length of 126 m .


Fast running inside the fence .




On the testing line .

Guangzhou metro map could use some nice axial symmetry, the network will look perfectly balanced

According to Baidu, Haizhu Circular tram will consist of several sections all along the shore of Haizhu Island to eventually form a loop ... or circle. That would mean appr. 45 km and appr. 50 stations.
