Where, on the map, are stations of high speed railways Hangzhou-Shanghai and Hangzhou-Nanjing-Beijing?

Are the trains the same comparable size as Shanghais line 2 trains?

no, they are B size trains so they are 2.8m wide and ~19 meters long. In shanghai metro line 2 they use A size trains which are 3m wide and ~22 meters long.

Something is really fishy with Hangzhou Metro.



"Cracks appear in tube in Hangzhou's subway line"
By Zha Minjie | 2012-5-17 | shanghaidaily.com


Quote:
CRACKS have appeared in a subway tunnel under construction in Hangzhou but will cause neither safety problems nor delays, according to the subway's builders.

The builders said they would conduct repair work soon to solidify the structure of Hangzhou's Line 1, which had the nation's worst subway-related construction accident more than three years ago.

In that case, on November 13, 2008, a foundation caved in, killing 21 workers and injuring more than 20 others.

The Hangzhou Metro Group said yesterday that the recently discovered cracks on segments of the tube were caused by pressure from large piles of earth from another construction project nearby.

The subway builder said the mounds of earth excavated from the other project had been "piled up very high, up to six to seven meters."

The pressure caused water leaks, discovered by metro workers during routine checks.

Officials of the metro group said the tube's integrity is not in any danger and the subway, which began construction in 2007, is expected to start test runs by October. It is expected to have 30 stations, they said.

I thought the ground water leak is at a different area from the picture, which actually shows a cracked fire system piping. I do think that there needs to be serious inquiries about this particular metro system, it took over five years to build and is already having major issues days after opening.

Wait a minute. The cracks appeared during construction and note the article is from May. Do we have any information about problems since opening?

There are a lot of reports in Chinese but limited news in English.

So there is water leaking into an underground passage. Suddenly that means the whole system is unsafe? I do recall New York subway stations that leaked and it rained inside when it rained outside. Perhaps they will experience a cave in soon?

If the river breached the passage, it would flood the entire concourse easily, and not descend from the ceiling in such a controlled manner. The deluge would be huge. Hong Kong media has reported water seepage at 1 station on the new Line 1 (should be the one in the article you posted). The metro company suspects due to the proximity to nearby rivers, the water table is higher than normal and hence there is seepage.

http://orientaldaily.on.cc/cnt/china...00178_008.html

I'm interested to know what other problems they have reported. So far I haven't picked up anything beyond that 1 station.

So far leaks have occurred at four different stations: Chengzhan (railway station), Xianghu, Wulin Square, and Anding Rd.

However, less than a week after the joyful opening ceremony, the Subway Line 1's Chengzhan and Xianghu stations experienced continuous water leaks. Although the subway's operator explained the causes of water leaks in order to restore public confidence in its safety, it was the explanation that exposed a few problems concerning the subway's safety. First, they "forgot" installing special drainage pipelines in Chengzhan Station where the soil has high water content. Second, there were serious quality problems with the expansion joints of the water pipes in Xianghu Station, which led to water leaks.

Anyway these problems can find a solution
