I have completed a thorough revamp of my Guangzhou metro map adding all lines under construction and waterways in order to better reflect the complex landscape of the city.

Where are the under construction Foshan Lines? Such as Line 2, 3 and Nankai New Transit.

What I know as Foshan tram, which will use hydrogen-fuelled trams. I was already wondering about Foshan lines 2 and 3, both are U/C, but they are on a separate city (but then I would delete the Guangzhou-Foshan line a.k.a. Foshan line 1 from the map).

I think until the Foshan line actually opens this thread will contain news relating to it. But I agree there should be a separate thread for Foshan Metro.

I didn't know about the plans for extensions in Foshan, you are right, they should be added on the map. After all Guangzhou and Foshan form one big conurbation and their networks are interconnected and should be represented as one.

Why is line 3 regarded as one line when it is two separate lines? Would it be possible to extend the northern part of it from Tiyi Xilu towards south-west?

The actual name is 南海新交通 lit. "Nankai new traffic" but i'm pretty sure they mean Nankai New Transit like in Japan. Some people around here seem to call it the Foshan Tram which is a bit disingenuous because this isn't some streetcar running down Johnston Road in HK. It's a light metro or AGT-like line using low floor hydrogen trams. Its role in urban transport is similar to the 新交通ゆりかもめ or New Transit Yurikamome, a medium capacity feeder line. The entire line is either on a viaduct or in a tunnel and separated from traffic. That is how this tram is able to operate automatically; Not due to some experimental Chinese self driving AI, the line is basically a subway.

It is planned to extend the northern part of the southern section (northeast of Tiyu Xilu) towards the southwest as line 10. Once that occurs, both line 3s will be joined. In the meantime I'd change the southern section of line 3 to line 10 if it weren't for those rush hour trains running from Tonghe past Tiyu Xilu to Dashi.

Soooo apparently this happened.... about 65 meters of the BRT lane at the intersection of Tianfu Rd and Zhongshan Ave was changed to a variable lane to allow U-Turning cars to use the BRT Lane when congestion is too high.





While this is a high tech and kinda cool solution. This underlines the battle currently brewing between the Guangzhou traffic dept and the BRT operation unit. Apparently since 2016 traffic police have consistently redirected cars into the BRT Lane to "improve traffic flow".

You can read about it here.

The Zhongshan BRT is a very controversial topic in Guangzhou. It's an impressive piece of transport engineering but many question the point of it and would prefer if a subway were built instead.

At present, Metro Line 3 extension civil engineering between the Airport South Station and the Airport North Station is completed about 69%.

Airport North Station main structure has been completed and transferred to electro -mechanical installation. Airport North Station plans to open next year at the same time with the Baiyun International Airport T2 terminal.
