I dont know, maybe some people prefer a slippery surface?


BTW:

A口 = Entrance A

As you can see the Entrance E in this pic:

As to the slippery surface that remains a mystery!

Station signage is rather smart.

Awesome looking! Quick question: Why does the floor tiling look like it's leaking and wet? Is it a construction issue?

I think they mop it too often with too much water.

i think so i find that most recently opened metros in china that use granite flooring have that on their grout lines then after a few months it disappears. i pretty likely that they want to make everything look spotless. Some say its from poor waterproofing and cutting corners during construction, but judging how most new Chinese subway stations are well planned out, use pretty high quality materials and design. Waterproofing seems like the least effective way of cutting corners.

I think due to fully underground with platform screen doors, it is almost impossible for taking a front-view of train. However, please try to post some front side photos.

I’ve some question. Please try to answer one by one:-

1) Will line 1 be extended from Shenxian Lake to Dafeng & from Century City to Guangdu?
2) Will there be a new line 2 From Longquan East to Shiniu?
3) Will there be a new line 3 From Hongxing to Banqiao South?
4) Will there be a new line 4 From Wenjiang to Xihe?
5) Will there be a new line 5 From Simaqiao to Jianghe?
6) Will there be a new line 6 From Shawan to Sihe with a branch from Bolichang to Shuangliu Airport?
7) Will there be a new line 7 From Shengtai to Longtandong?

Chinese build all they say so yes to all. However, there are some changes:
Line 5 from Shawan will go North instead of going East to Simaqiao, that becones part of line 7.
Line 6 will be extended from Shawan taking over the Northwestern part of line 7. The branch will be part of line 10.
Line 7 becomes a ring line, taking over part of line 5. Its former ends become part of lines 6 and 9.

And three new lines:
Line 8, a new East-West line that will intersect with line 1 at Xiaotanzhu
Line 9, taking over Northeastern end of line 7, then paralelling it and finally going to the airport and Shuangliu
Line 10, takes over the line 6 branch and then turns North.

Not sure if this has been approved...

BTW, I know lines 2 to 4 are U/C.

2) Underground.
3) Don't know.
4) Don't know.
5) I know there is a suburban rail line, but I don't know if it connects to metro. Perhaps at North railway station.
6) At Huayang, beyond Shenxian lake.
