Great system! This looks like one of the more modern and fresh metros in China in terms of design.

Are there any more lines under construction?

Hangzhou's first metro line to start operation





Images source : http://www.hzmetro.com/

HANGZHOU, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- The first metro line in east China's scenic city of Hangzhou will be put into service on Saturday, after more than five years of construction.

The opening of the 48-km-long Metro Line One was delayed after a tunnel collapse one year after construction began in 2007, which caused 21 deaths and left 24 people injured.

Shao Jianming, chairman of the Hangzhou Metro Group behind the project, said on Friday that the 24-billion-yuan (3.85 billion U.S. dollars) line boasts complex technology, as it runs underneath the West Lake, the Qiantang River, the Grand Canal and several railways.

"The construction team had to overcome a lot of difficulties, because of complicated underwater geological conditions such as pebble beds and methane gas," he said.

Incorporating 31 stations, the line will accommodate 48 trains running to ensure a departure every 10 minutes from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily. Ticket fares are set to vary from 2 to 8 yuan depending on the distance passengers are traveling.

It will be jointly operated by the Hangzhou Metro Group and the Hong Kong-based MTR, according to a deal signed in July on a 51-49 joint venture to manage the line for 25 years.

The public have been enthusiastic about the opening, which is widely anticipated to ease the city's traffic woes. About 220,000 people, many of them journalists, rode on the trains during test rides organized from Sunday to Wednesday.

Shao said Hangzhou plans to have a metro network eventually boasting 10 lines and comprising 40 percent of the city's public transport.

Hangzhou opens first metro line to ease traffic

THE first metro line in Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province, officially opened today in a bid to help ease traffic congestion.

The 48-km-long Metro Line One has 31 stations and 48 trains with a departure every 10 minutes from 6:30 am to 8:30 pm each day.

Zhejiang Governor Xia Baolong inaugurated the line, which is designed with a daily passenger capacity of 287,000.

Shao Jianming, chairman of the Hangzhou Metro Group which is behind the project, said that the 24-billion-yuan (US$3.85 billion) line is expected to ease traffic woes in the city, which has a population of more than 8.7 million.

"Hangzhou's metro network, upon its full completion in 2050, will comprise 40 percent of the city's public transport," he said.

Hangzhou will build 10 metro lines by 2020 with a combined length of 375 km and by 2050, it will have a total of 13 lines.

Shao said the Metro Line One, which took five years to construct, boasts complex technology as it runs underneath the West Lake, the Qiantang River, the Grand Canal and several railways.

The line will be jointly operated by the Hangzhou Metro Group and the Hong Kong-based MTR, according to a deal signed in July on a 51-49 joint venture to manage the line for 25 years.

Huang Kunming, secretary of the Hangzhou Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China, called today's launch "just a beginning" of Hangzhou's metro line construction boom.

Tickets, which are due to go on sale at 2:30 pm, are set to vary from 2 to 8 yuan.

That's really weird. Why the metro closes so early? To spend so much money for a line that operates only during the day and early evening.

It amazed me the same about Beijing metro, when i was there, last train was around 22.00. That's pretty soon for a huge city.
And i can't say chinese people go to bed that early, coz there were plenty of them in the streets even at night.

In the one photo above showing the elevated section, there is a sharp turn that appears to be inconsistent with the elevated stations circled on the map, since that is mostly a straight stretch.
