I believe it has been done in the initial section of Tianjin Line 1 but it only had like 8 stations at the time and the subway stations was super shallow and simple. There is talk for platform extension work for Line 5 in shanghai and Line 1 in Beijing. Any elevated or ground level line would be super easy to extend platforms (like line 5). I guess the viaduct on line 5 has a very large safety factor or is a standard design so it can take the heaver loading.

For how long would they need to shut the line if they decide to extend the platforms?

I just posted my newest Shanghai Maglev video! I have rarely seen footage of the maglev trains leaving the depot early in the morning and negotiating the single track with steep grade and sharp curves.

I spent many hours walking along the maglev track looking for unique vantage points for viewing the maglev train speed by!

Stunning video. I liked most of all when Maglev trains runs along with metro trains (line 2 and 16). Thanks for sharing, I'll reshare that into our Russian section.
