Well it has explosive population growth. You say that as if it were always that large. And by "unheard of", I mean the fact that "everyone" has heard of Shanghai or Hong Kong or Beijing, but are unaware that there are way more large, urban, now-modern cities all over China.

Chengdu is more comparable to LA in population than New York but from a density perspective its more like Paris or London.

Previously unheard of?? Si Chuan is a key province in China and I have never met anyone around here who hasn't heard of either. However your point in regards to stagnation in infrastructure development is valid which is the most important point.

Yes, thank you all for taking this the wrong way. But perhaps a case in point is that for such a booming metro, this thread was hard to find, way back in the pages of "subways and urban transport" list. I ended up having to Google search it after doing control F for the first seven pages and not finding Chengdu. The metro is also the first in southwestern China.

Meanwhile a new round of planning is now drafted, and it is simply huge. If Wuhan was crazy, Chengdu is even crazier with up to 23 new lines and extensions adding up to 518 km . Only Beijing and Shanghai have currently larger networks in operation. Also, the numbers reach crazy high figures (The highest planned number now is line 40! Just one short of making me happy). The list is as follows.

Extensions:
1. 4th phase of line 1, Weijianian to Juxia Lu, 9.2 km, 6 stations.
2. 3rd phase of line 2, Longquanyi to Longquan Shan, 4.1 km, 2 stations.
3. 4th phase of line 3, Chengdu Yi Xueyuan to Xindu, 2.6 km, 1 station.
4. 3rd phase of line 4, Xihe to Luodai and Wansheng Lu to Jinma, 17 km, 8 stations.
5. 3rd phase of line 5, Huilong to Yong'an, 6.6 km, 4 stations.
6. 4th phase of line 6, Wangcongci to Taiqing Lu, 3 km, 2 stations.
7. 2nd phase of line 8, Shilidian to Longtan Si Dong, Changcheng Lu to Shuangliu Airport terminal 2 (branch), and Xiejiaqiao to Xihanggang Keyun Zhongxin; 12.8 km, 10 stations.
8. 2nd phase of line 9, Jinrong Zhongxin Dong around the East and North back to Chengfei Jituan, 47.3 km, 23 stations.
9. 3rd phase of line 10, Taiping Yuan to Renmin Gongyuan, 5.5 km, 4 stations.
10. 3rd phase of line 18, South station to North station, 11.2 km, 5 stations.

New lines:
1. 1st phase of line 12, Xinglong to Yangliu Hu, 26.2 km, 9 stations.
2. 1st phase of line 13, Qiligou to Longquan Shan, 36 km, 20 stations.
3. 1st phase of line 15, Laoshuang Zhonglu to Sihe and Wugensong to Shaba'er, 21.8 km, 17 stations.
4. 1st phase of line 16, Xindong to Keji Cheng, 59 km, 27 stations.
5. 2nd phase of line 17, Jitou Zhen to Longtan Si Dong, 27.6 km, 15 stations (This is actually an extension...)
6. 2nd phase of line 19, Jiujiang Bei to New Tianfu station, 45.6 km, 10 stations (Yes, a second phase before the first one ).
7. 1st phase of line 27, Liziwan to Longju Cun, 22.2 km, 20 stations
8. Line 29, Chengfei Jituan Nan to Jinxiang, 38.4 km, 32 stations.
9. 1st phase of line 30, Hangshu Dadao to Hongjiaqiao, 26.1 km, 25 stations.
10. Line 33, Yongkang Senlin Gongyuan to Jinshui Huaxian, 21.9 km, 17 stations.
11. Line 34, Xindong to Jintang Sanxing, 31.4 km, 9 stations.
12. Ziyang line (Line 18-1), Tianfu airport South to Ziyang North station, 36.3 km, 8 stations, through service to line 18.
13. Jianyang line (Line 18-2), Tianfu airport North to Jianyang South station, 6.5 km, 1 station, through service to line 18.

Yup. China is going simply mad. They are having their heyday in a good way it seems. I know them (and Denmark) used to be known for huge biking commuters.
But I believe at least in Copenhagen, while that's still big, there's now a larger share of cars than there used to be. Now China is not innocent in this game either,
private cars had a massive explosion, but at least transit is playing a fair game keeping up, where in the US they barely poop out one LRT line and say "there's
your transit", and then it's underutilized and people throw up their hands and say there's no possible way to compete with cars. Of course only two or three of
our cities are "very large", where in China there are many very large cities. So yeah then, even comparing only to those two, LA only has a few hundred thousand
riders, and their entire bus system is barely a million.

No, Chongqing was the first city in South Western China to build a metro system, albeit beginning with a monorail system, opening 5 years before Chengdu. They are "brother" cities with both of them being very competitive with each other on many fronts.

However Chengdu can claim to have the first naturally ventilated underground line.

Necessity is definitely the name of the game here. While 86 out of every hundred people own or drive a private vehicle in Western countries, that figure is still only 4 or 6 out of 100 people in China, despite the explosion of car sales. With the population density, there is simply not enough space on the roads if China matching Western levels of road vehicles. Thus the overdue public transit explosion goes hand in hand with the multitude of infrastructure projects involving air, land and sea across China.

How the circle line 9 would look on the map? So far we saw just line 7 being a circle, right?

Per the latest news the first phases of lines 8 and 9 and the second phase of line 10 have started construction. Line 8 will run from Northeast to Southwest, initially from Shilidian to Xiejiaqiao, 28.8 km and 24 stations, and is expected to be extended in both directions to Longtang Si Dong and Xihanggang Keyun Zhongxin, as well as a branch to Shuangliu airport. Line 9 will initially run from Jinrong Zhongxin Dong to Chengfei Gongyuan over 23.9 km and 11 stations, but eventually will form a second ring line outside line 7. The second phase of line 10 will extend the line beyond Shuangliu airport all the way to Xinping out in Xinjin county, adding 27 km and 9 stations. The first phase of line 10, from Taipingyuan to Shuangliu airport (11 km and 6 stations) is now complete and ready for test runs, and is expected to open by October. Later line 10 will be extended into the city center, to Renmin Gongyuan on line 2.

Also, I mentioned line 6 would run well into Pi county. This won't happen, not because the line had been cut back, but because Pi county no longer exists, having become Pidu district sometime in December.

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

A small update from Ditiezu:

If everything goes right, we can speculate an official opening shortly after that.

Trial tests start date: 2017.01.18
(Tentative) Trial tests end date: 2017.04.18

​Looks like our friends over at ​Ditiezu have spotted a new map, showing some of the upcoming network changes.



On the same topic, last week I've launched the web version of all my transit maps!



You can jump straight to Chengdu here.

As always, any feedback is more than welcome!

On February 27 the first phase of lines 11 and 17 started construction. Line 11 will initially run from Guandong through Tianfu New Area to Lanjiagou, spanning 22 km and 19 stations. Line 17 will be an express line as it will run from Jitou Zhen to Jinxing with only 9 stations over 25.8 km. In the future both lines will be extended: Line 11 will be extended in both directions to Liulichang and Xinjin, as well as a branch to Huanglong Xi Jingqu; and line 17 will be extended from Jitou Zhen across the city center to Longtang Si Dong.

I found this on Wikipedia:

map of the network in 2021. There is about 50% of the Line 9 (outer ring) marked on it.

I must say, Chengdu's metro seems to have a lot of beautifully-designed stations.

I'll have to visit someday; my Chinese teachers were from Chengdu, and I know that the teahouse scene in the city is world-class.

On Ditiezu there's a discussion about an upcoming journey fare update for the whole network.

The discussion is reachable here but I don't have the privilege to access (I don't speak Chinese so I can't participate much in that community).

Does anyone know something about this?

I've found a map with all planned lines, and I have to say it is the craziest plan ever! No less than 43 lines are planned, of which 3 of them are named and the rest numbered (if they only numbered one of the named lines...). I remember not too many years ago they were planning only 7 lines. Since the map is huge I list the lines below.
Line 1, Juxia Lu to Kexuecheng (Sihe to Guangdu and U/C to Wugensong becomes part of line 15)
Line 2, Xipu to Longquanshan
Line 3, Xindu East Station to Shuangliu West Station
Line 4, Jinma to Luodai
Line 5, Huagui Lu to Baimatan
Line 6, Taiqing Lu to Qijiayang (absorbs line 11)
Line 7, Inner Central loop
Line 8, Shibantan to Xihanggang Keyun Zhongxin/Terminal 2 of Shuangliu Airport
Line 9, Outer Central loop
Line 10, Renmin Gongyuan to Gaoda Lu
Line 11, Longquan Tiyu Zhongxin to Shengwuyuan Nan (Line 11 currently U/C absorbed by line 6 as its 3rd phase)
Line 12, Tianfu New Station to Pujiang Station/Qionglai Station/Dayi Zhongxin/Chongzhou Station
Line 13, Wenjiang Station to Terminals 3 and 4 of Tianfu Airport
Line 14, Chejiawan to Sirengou
Line 15, Feijialin to Shuangbiantang (absorbs existing and U/C line 1 branch from Sihe to Wugensong)
Line 16, Xindong (no "New East Station" so reverting to Pinyin) to Baiguocun
Line 17, Shuangliu West Station to Longtangsi Dong/Xianglushan (Jinxing to Dajing absorbed by line 19 as its 1st phase)
Line 18, North Station to Jianyang South Station
Line 19, Jinxing to Tianfu New Station (Jinxing to Dajing U/C as line 17)
Line 20, Xianglushan to Tianfu New Station
Line 21, Tianxiangcun to Huapuzi
Line 22, Jinshi Lu to Wanshi Lu
Line 23, Pengzhou Station to Guanghan
Line 24, Sanxing to Tianfangba
Line 25, Luodai to Xihanggang Keyun Zhongxin
Line 26, Tianfu New District loop
Line 27, Liziwan to Xiaohuangnian
Line 28, Zhiwuyuan to Zhongyiyao Daxue
Line 29, Chengfei Jituan Nan to Jinxiang
Line 30, Yinjiatang to Hangshu Dadao
Line 31, Shawan to Luodai
Line 32, Sansheng Dong to Yinxing Dadao
Line 33, Baifoqiao to Jinshui Huaxiang
Line 34, Xindong to Sanxing
Line 35, Baoli Shequ to Jintang Keyunzhan
Line 36, Longtangsi Dong to Deyang
Line 37, Jinxing to Dujiangyang Station
Line 38, Xianglushan to Zhongjiang
Line 39, Sheng Zhengfu to Renshou
Line 40, North Station to Deyang
Line 41, they will make extremely happy the day they announce this one
Jianyang line, loop around Tianfu Airport
Meishan line, Shuangbiantang to Meishan
Ziyang line, Tianfu Airport South/Terminals 3 and 4 of Tianfu Airport to Ziyang North Station
