So if the driver has to swerve does he pull all the power cables with the bus?

Can't remember I ever heard of something like this happening... but I can imagine it happens once or twice a year. You can swerve quite a bit off the cable-lane with the large power-supply-thing on the roof, at least to the opposite lane on the road.

Interesting electrical busses. What happens if the driver veers too far from the wires, does he/she pull down the whole wiring system?

Guangzhou Planning New Subways

South China city planning new subways
Xinhua News Agency

BEIJING, May 19 (CEIS) -- Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong Province, is busy this year in construction of subways, according to the plan to open nine lines by 2010, when the Asian Games is held in the city.

Metro projects planned to be completed this year include the extension at the Pazhou end of Line 2, the Kecun-Guangzhou East Railway Station section of Line 3, and the section of Line 4 linking up the University City, according to China Daily of May 19.

The newspaper quoted the city government sources as saying construction is expected to start full scale on lines 4 and 5 thisyear, and the city will strive to start building experimental sections of lines 6, 8 and the airport line. Preliminary work will continue on the line linking Guangzhou and the neighboring city of Foshan.

Spending on lines 3, 4 and 5 alone this year will amount to 3. 3billion yuan (398 million US dollars) to be paid by government funds and bank loans, according to the Guangzhou Municipal Development and Reform Commission.

When all the lines are completed by 2010, the subway network inGuangzhou will be about 255 km long.

The subway system, seen by the municipal government as an important way to ease the mounting traffic pressure on the roads, makes up part of the plan for an overall facelift of the city before the 2010 Asian Games. It is intended to shorten traveling time as the urban area expands.

The permanent population in Guangzhou exceeds 10 million. Average daily traffic on subway lines 1 and 2 topped 450,000 passengers last year, according to Guangzhou Metro Corp., which iswholly owned by the government.

The two lines, with a combined length of 37 km, carried 640, 000passengers per day on average during the week-long May day holidayseason, setting a day record of 890,000 passengers on May 1.

Line 3, totaling 36 km and 18 stops when completed in 2006, will become the first line on the Chinese mainland capable of accommodating speeds of 120 km per hour, said sources from the Guangzhou Metro Corp.

In the meantime, Guangzhou intends to build a light railway linking Guangzhou East Railway Station and the New Zhujiang Town, which is expected to be the city's urban center in coming years, according to the Guangzhou Municipal Construction Commission.

So cheap to build 3 subway lines?

No wonder China's cities are building them like crazy
