Apparently metro trains are being built in Qingdao.

Are there going to be any extra measures taken to address the earthquakes in the region?

Probably no, and it's unlikely that they will need to.

Sichuan quake 'was once-in-4,000-year event'

Sep 27, 2009

People who were killed, injured or bereaved in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake had the cruel misfortune to be victims of an event that probably occurs just once in four millennia, seismologists have said.

In a paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience on Sunday, Shen Zhengkang of the China Earthquake Administration and colleagues said the May 12, 2008 quake comprised a strong seismic wave, unusual geology and the failure of three subterranean "barriers" to resist the shock.

Using Global Positioning System (GPS) markers and data from satellite-borne interferometric radar, the scientists built up a picture of the Longmen Shan fault, on the northwest rim of the Sichuan basin, as it was gouged open by the 7.9-magnitude temblor.

Nearly 88,000 people were killed in what was the largest seismic event in China in more than 50 years.

The investigators said the sub-surface geometry is complex, varying significantly along the length of the fault zone.

In the southwest of the zone, the fault's plane dips slightly to the northwest. It then rides up, becoming nearly vertical, in the zone's northeast.

Added to this is a change in motion -- principal movement -- along the fault.

The motion initially starts out as a thrust, a vertical movement in which lower layers of rock are pushed up and on top of higher layers. Farther along the fault, this changes to so-called strike-slip movements, which are lateral.

Three junction segments which have held up for years received extraordinary blows that day when the main shock was unleashed about 30 kilometers (18 miles) southwest of the city of Yingxiu, the paper says.

A wave of energy rocketed along the fault, ripping open the rock beneath Yingxiu as well as Beichuan and Nanba, which is where the biggest earth slippages -- and fatalities -- occurred.

These three locations were "barriers" that were smashed down in a single, exceptional event and caused the rest of the fault to rip open, the study said.

"We estimate that the failure of barriers and rupture along multiple segments takes place approximately once in 4,000 years," it said.

Offering a morsel of comfort, Shen told AFP: "There are still aftershocks, but I don't think there is big chance in that region of another big one" for the foreseeable future.

Are there two different plans for future lines? I'm asking because the two maps in post #5 show fairly distinct differences.

At the end of 2008/beggining of 2009 a lot of new infrastructure investments were announced, it looks like the second map was the planned network originally and then they extended the lines and included new ones.

My Chinese is a bit rusty, but the second one seems to show the layout of some kind of highspeed system, while the first one is the ordinary metro lines.

It's gonna be so nice to have a metro in Chengdu. Short of walking, getting out of downtown Chengdu in rush traffic is next to impossible. Plus, it's both hard to get around and not very pretty with all that metro construction in the major arteries.

So envious of Chengdu! That's what makes people want to catch the metro and not take their car out.
