276.2km by the end of 2016 and 469 km by the end of 2017? Am I reading that correctly?

If so the latter figure would catapault the GZ metro into third place in terms of longest metros in the world based on current figures.

It appears Guangzhou has some deadline in the form of a big event seeing how its metro system will almost double its length next year, but AFAIK it has nothing scheduled. Guangzhou metro has lagged behind since 2010, they only have opened the 24.5 km epic fail that is line 6 since then (And a 7.3 km extension to the Guangzhou-Foshan line, but I count all of it as part of the neighboring Foshan).

It is more the the snowball of older (delayed) Guangzhou Metro projects like Line 9 and the line 4 south. On top of newer fast tracked projects such as Line 13, 14 and 21. So everything will be opening all at once. However a lot of the new length belong to these ridiculously long BART-like suburban metro lines. For example, Line 14 and Line 21 together is 130km long and 43 stops so we are looking at ~3km stop spacings and passing through some pretty sparsely populated (by Chinese standards) areas.

Side note: Foshan's metro I would count as part of the Guangzhou metro especially the Guangfo metro line. 40% of the line is in Guangzhou and the 7.3 km extension is entirely inside Guangzhou's Haizhu district.
