I hate this policy of naming the lines. They should revert to numbers as before.

I agree, it's really annoying. Numbers are way easier to navigate and remember.

I like the line names, it gives the lines character. Maybe instead of dropping numbers completely they should do "Line 4 - Longhua Line" etc.

Some more information about the four new planned metro lines.


Four more Metro lines planned


SHENZHEN’S planning and land resources commission is planning an additional four Metro lines, with a total length of 140 kilometers, in its latest long-term rail transport plan.
The new lines would boost Shenzhen’s rail network to 20 lines with a total length of 720 kilometers, equivalent to the distance between Shenzhen and the Hunan Province capital of Changsha.
The commission included 16 lines with a total length of 585 kilometers and 357 stations in its 2007 plan. Those lines included four express lines, six trunk lines and six regional lines. The latest plan adds four lines in developing parts of the city.
The draft plan includes a circular line, Line 17 and temporarily named the Qiannan Line, around the Qianhai development area. The line would stretch for 34.4 kilometers around the Qianhai, Xixiang and Shenzhen Bay areas.
Line 18, or the Pinghu Line, would run 24.7 kilometers from Shenzhen Stadium to Pinghu.
(Continued on Page 2)

Line 19, the Pingshan Line, would run 23.9 kilometers from Biling to Kengzi. Line 20, the Fuyong Line, would run 14 kilometers from Shenzhen International Airport to west of Fuyong.
“The plan considers Qianhai, another center of future development in Shenzhen, and crowded areas that currently aren’t covered by the Metro system, such as Pingshan and and Pinghu,” Fan Xintai, the commission’s deputy department chief, said this week, according to the Southern Metropolis Daily.
The draft plan is on display at the commission’s office and at sub-bureaus in each district until Dec. 18. It also can be found online at: www.szpl.gov.cn.
Shenzhen transport officials also are planning five intercity rail lines, linking with Guangzhou, Dongguan, Huizhou, Zhuhai and Hong Kong, with a total length of 146.2 kilometers. Four of those five lines would go through the Qianhai area.

SZ to start work sooner on new Metro lines

SHENZHEN’S rail authority may start construction work on future Metro lines 6 and 16 ahead of schedule, in an effort to relieve pressure on the crowded Longhua Line.
The southern end of Metro Line 6, an extension to original plans for the unbuilt line, will either go along Xinzhou Road, Caitian Road or Shangbu Road.
According to Chen Qiang, an official with the city’s rail construction office, the 37.85-kilometer south-north Metro Line 6 will start from Shenzhen North Station and pass through Longhua, Shiyan, Guangming and Gongming before ending at Songgang in Bao’an District. It will connect with Futian District’s CBD and Hong Kong through Longhua Line.
Construction of Metro Line 6 will start after financing is finalized. Authorities are considering whether to include part of the line’s funding in the city’s Phase III rail construction plan.
The rail authority will also try to advance the construction of Line 16 from the original start date of 2014. The Y-shaped line, temporarily named Bantian Line, will start in the Futian Free Trade Zone and end in Pinghu in Longgang District and Guanlan in Longhua New Area. The line will play an important role in industrial development in central Shenzhen.
“The line will be the only line covering Bantian and Pinghu. Without this line, transportation infrastructure couldn’t satisfy commuting needs, even after the completion of Xincai Tunnel and Panyin Passage,” Xue Bo, president of Shenzhen Urban Transportation Planning Institute, said Wednesday.
In the city’s third-phase rail construction, lines 6, 7, 8, 9 and 11 will add a total length of 171.5 kilometers to the city’s rail network. When the third phase is completed in 2016, the city’s total rail length will reach 350 kilometers and the network will carry 38 percent of passengers using local public transportation.

Not sure on the accuracy of it or the interpretation, but if it's including bus, then London has higher ridership than New York. Not to mention if you add all the National Rail passengers within South London…

A new train for Shenzhen Metro system’s Longhua Line is lifted onto tracks for a trial run yesterday. It was one of four trains purchased by HKMTR Shenzhen Co. which are scheduled to be put into use in March next year. Longhua Line’s transport capacity will then be increased by 10 percent, with intervals on the line being shortened to 2 minutes 30 seconds. Courtesy of MTR

Line 7 is going to be underground correct? I don't think there are any plans for metro or light rail to run on the streets in Shenzhen...yet.

There is a concept for a tram line in the Sungang-Qingshuihe Urban Regeneration and Redevelopment Project and a proposal for a tram feeding into the Longhua Line in the north.

SZ to advance Metro Line 16 work

Han Ximin
[email protected]
SHENZHEN rail authorities will advance construction work on Metro Line 16 in an effort to relieve pressure on the crowded Longhua Line and congestion at Meilin Checkpoint.
The project will start in 2015 in the third phase of Metro projects, rail construction officials said Saturday.
Line 16 will start in the Futian Free Trade Zone and end in Pinghu in Longgang District. It will have 26 stations and run nearly 40 kilometers through Futian’s CBD, Meilin, Bantian, and Huawei New City. The line will play an important role in industrial development in central Shenzhen.
Line 16 will be the only line covering Bantian and Pinghu and is expected to relieve commuting difficulties for residents of Meilin, Bantian and Pinghu.
Construction of third-phase rail projects including work on future lines 7, 9 and 11 will be fully developed in 2013. The projects will cause traffic disruptions and road closures in Bao’an, Nanshan, Futian and Luohu districts.
The section of Binhai Boulevard in Xiasha has closed eastbound lanes for construction of Xiasha Station on Metro Line 7. Vehicles have been diverted to the other side of the road, which has been split in half. The project contractor for Line 7 said the road closure will last for about 26 months.
Additionally, construction of Ludancun Station on Metro Line 9 will cause partial closures for the next two years on the viaduct linking Binhe Boulevard and Bao’an Road South.
When the third phase of Metro work is completed in 2016, the city’s total rail length will reach 350 kilometers and the network will carry 38 percent of passengers using local public transportation.

Chegongmiao facing years of worsened traffic
http://www1.szdaily.com/content/2013...nt_7588017.htm

Quote:
2013-January-10 08:53 Shenzhen Daily
THE commercial and office centers of Huaqiangbei, Tianbei and Chegongmiao will give motorists headaches for the next three years because of delays and closures caused by extensive Metro construction projects.

The project contractor for the future Metro Line 11 said part of a side road off Xiangmihu Road, under the Xiangmi overpass on Shennan Boulevard, already has been closed. The eastbound bridge connecting the Xiangmi overpass with Shennan Boulevard will be closed starting in February.

Southbound drivers who want to turn onto Shennan Boulevard from Xiangmihu Road will need to drive to Binhe Road, make a U-turn and then drive to Shennan Boulevard.

The bridge will be closed for 42 months because of the Metro project.

The Line 11 project also will occupy other parts of Shennan Boulevard, Binhe Road and Xiangmihu Road, causing jams in the area.

Shenzhen’s transport commission said the Xiangmi overpass will be dismantled as the project progresses. The project also will close a nearby pedestrian tunnel and force pedestrians to cross Shennan Boulevard on a temporary footbridge near the China Merchants Bank office building.

Chegongmiao faces bookend construction projects for the next three years, as work on Metro Line 7 north of the area will start on Hongli Road and work on Metro Line 9 south of the area will start on Binhe Road.

The Chegongmiao office area has a population of about 200,000. It eventually will be home to the largest Metro terminal in the city, at the intersection of the existing Luobao Line and future lines 7, 9 and 11.
