成都全搜索新闻网(记者 郭莹)7月25日报道 今天,成都地铁1号线南延线正式进入载客试运营,沿线五站全部投入使用。早上8:25分,成都地铁1号线南延线首发列车从广都站出发,驶向升仙湖方向。据了解,从广都站到天府广场站仅需33分钟,这意味着,连接成都中心城区和天府新区两个“主极核”的交通重要纽带正式形成。

Today, the southern extension to Chengdu Metro's Line 1 opens for passenger testing, with all 5 stations being put into use. At 8:25 this morning, the first train left from Guangdu Station heading towards Shenxian Lake Station. It is understood that travel time is 33 minutes from Guangdu to Tianfu Square, meaning the city's transportation "Core Axis" from Chengdu's CBD and the Tianfu New District has officially been formed.

Dimlys, that doesn't look updated. >.<

Should have five more stations after Century City, also "Ocean Park" was the old designation for that station. Once it opened (last year I believe) it was named Jincheng Plaza. (锦城广场).

New stations after Century City are;
-Tianfu 3rd Street [天府三街]
-Tianfu 5th Street [天府五街]
-Huafu Avenue [华府大道]
-Sihe [四河]
-Guangdu [广都] NOT Huayang [华阳] because of ... reasons?

I think to see updated map, you should go to this page on urbanrail.net and press refresh page in your browser. From my point of view, it works:

It seems Huayang is now a planned (Already U/C?) station in the third phase of line 1. It appears a line 23 will intersect line 1 there. Interesting, line 1 will split after Sihe and the two branches will merge again farther South.

I've also read a grand total of 32 lines totalling 1350 kilometers are planned. If we exclude 'intercity' metro lines, the line count goes down to 24, which is the highest number I've seen so far. However, I don't have any hints where line 21 would go...

By intercity metro lines are you referring to Suburban Rail or Communter Rail?

If not then any true metro line that lies within the boundary of the city should be included in the Cheng Du Metro rail map. Any portion of the Metro Rail that lies outside the city limits and is in a adjoining city and financed and operated by that city should form part of another Urban Metro System.

As details are sketchy it's largely a matter of speculation.

Damn translator. Suburban rail, yes. Apparently there are eight lines in the plans, however I only know some details about the one that will go to Meishan.

Line 4 stations are all but the most central station complete. Getting ready for the launch in December. By Chinese time scales, it looks on schedule.

Per the latest news, several new lines have been added to the short term plans. These include the extension of line 10 beyond Shuangliu airport to Xinjin county, as well as the first phases of lines 8, 9, 11 and 17. Line 8 will run Northeast-Southwest, line 9 will eventually form a second ring outside line 7, line 11 will be a J-shaped line in the South, and line 17 will run from line 7 West and Northwest, intersecting line 4 at Fengxi.

I don't have any links, I read that in translated that from the Baidupedia, it stated there was an adjustment to the short-term plans in the last months (I believe it was mid-August), and included the typical Chinese planning maps, so it might not be fake.

The second part of testing line 4 was a success. Yesterday the media were taken for a ride. Public testing begins at the start of next month, and the line will be open at the end of next month :-)

Here are what some of the new stations look like. They have made an effort to make some of them a bit less generic.
