To where is this line to be extended? Maglev should connect far distances such as Beijing or HK or SG. Not somewhere close like a commuter suburb. The best use for Mag Ledpv is connecting nearby cities, such as Frankfurt and Luxembourg, or Bangkok and Pattaya.

You do realize how many NIMBYs are out there to screw it up, do you?

Shanghai Metro working on extending Line 2's 8 Car service to Pudong Airport

Is the stations between Guanglan Road and Pudong International Airport long enough for 8 car trains?

No. At least those that are not underground, they are much shorter.

I hope there will be run through service wi no need to change trains as it is now.

Why exactly is the transfer currently necessary? I've always wondered...

This mandatory change at Guanglan Road is a pain in the ***.
People are pushing, all seats are taken within 100 miliseconds and people with large can squeeze themselves into the train again.

Some impressions from Shanghai Metro Line 16, esp. from the newly-opened section between Longyang Road and Luoshan Road stations.











A video from the section between Longyang Road and Luoshan Road, which was only recently opened (December 28, 2014).




In early 2014 I have recorded this video of Shanghai Metro Line 16 between Luoshan Road and Dishui Lake (I have posted this video here about 17 months ago).

I've noticed there is also some footage of line 2 at Nanjing Xilu in the video. The very same station that got renamed twice in a month in my version.

Yes, I did insert some footage from Line 2, mostly filmed between West Nanjing Road and Jing'an Temple.

Actually, they are. You can see the roughed in sections of the platforms on the underground stations.

First BRT route to link Fengxian with Pudong
Shanghai Daily
July 17, 2015

The city’s first BRT route, or Bus Rapid Transit, will be completed in 2017. It will link a residential area in Fengxian District to Oriental Sports Center in the Pudong New Area.

The 33.5 kilometer long route will benefit 220,000 residents of Nanqiao New Town in Fengxian. BRT is a faster and more efficient bus service which has its own dedicated lanes, thus avoiding delays. The new route will include both specialized routes for public buses as well as mixed routes which it will share with other vehicles during non-peak hours. It is expected to cut the trip between Nanqiao New Town and Oriental Sports Center by half an hour to about 45 minutes.

Line 5 will extend platforms to accommodate 6 car C trains in anticipation of the Southern extension. C train specification dropped on all future lines. After the Line 16 3 car fiasco all future lines will start with 6 cars.
