Is the splitting of line 3 a permanent solution? I thought they were going to build it underground.

I took Maglev several days ago and noticed that the construction of line 16 extension is underway! For some 800 meters line will run along with the Maglev line, which is cool. And I guess transfer from line 16 Longyang Road station to lines 2 and 7 will take a lot of time.

The construction is going well. I can see it when I drive to office. The worst transfer would be that from Line 16 to Line 7. Passengers have to walk crossing Maglev and Line 2 in the middle.

Line 7 Qihua Rd Station will open on July 22

Qihua Rd Station was the only unopened station of Line 7 phase II.

By the way, I've seen this time many new trolleybuses in Shanghai. All were low-floor, very modern and fresh. Pics to come.

And one more things I've noticed during my summer stay in Shanghai his year. Many buses now have LED destination signs instead of old drop-indicators. The old ones were better for taking pictures of LED signs look more modern but not so unique or original.

I thought trolleybuses are being phased out of service in Chinese cities? Why would they buy new ones?

Up to maybe around the late 90's. After that they probably realized that tearing down infrastructure is is dumb. Also supercapcitor buses and trams IMHO is a waste of money. When Nanjing, Guangzhou and Shenyang realize that these systems are an absolute pain to maintain and run, the fad will be over and wired connections will roll back in.

According to Wikipedia

Quote:
In 2004, the system was reported to comprise more than 20 routes, using a fleet of almost 900 vehicles,[3] but subsequently both numbers have significantly declined. The active fleet – the number of vehicles still in regular use – totalled a little more than 200 at the end of 2009.[10]
Reference: Trolleybus Magazine No. 290 (March–April 1990), p. 40.

Line 2 has the highest congregation of white collar workers since this line travels through Lujiazui financial disctrict and terminates at Zhangjiang High Tech Park. Girls of extraordinary beauty are also more easily to be seen than any other subways
