The network will reach a length of 350km after Phase 3 is completed in 2016. So far I haven't read any figures about the finishing date of Phase 4 and the length of the network expansion.

New rail station to start construction

http://www.szdaily.com/content/2013-...nt_7830379.htm
Quote:
2013-March-19 08:53 Shenzhen Daily
CONSTRUCTION of Xincheng Railway Station on the Shenzhen-Xiamen High-speed Railway will start at the end of the month, Shenzhen’s transport commission said Sunday.

The station will be east of Shenshan Road and south of Sankesong Reservoir, in the center of Pingshan New Area and 10 kilometers from Longgang District’s CBD.

Xincheng will be an intermediate passenger train station for Shenzhen-Xiamen high-speed rail, which is expected to open at the end of the year. Travel time between Shenzhen and Xiamen in Fujian Province will be cut to about 3 hours. Currently it takes about 8 hours to travel between the two cities by expressway.

The station also will be a transport hub for Metro, taxi, bus and rail passengers.

The station will include public transportation facilities, landscaped southern and northern public squares, and a terminal project.

Four roads will be expanded or renovated for the station. They are Danzi Road West, Zhanqian Road, Hele Road and Pinglan Road.

The transport commission said the future Metro Line 12, which is still under planning, will connect with the railway station’s southern square. The northern square will include a parking area for private cars and buses.

The biggest challenge facing the station construction project is land requisition totaling 160,000 square meters, which remains to be completed.

Shenzhen-Xiamen high-speed rail will be part of the Hangzhou-Shenzhen rail system, which will go through Ningbo and Fuzhou before ending in Shenzhen.

The 501-kilometer Shenzhen-Xiamen high-speed rail line will serve eight cities in Fujian and Guangdong.(Han Ximin)

Intercity rail construction moving slowly
http://www.szdaily.com/content/2013-...nt_7836015.htm

Quote:
2013-March-20 08:53 Shenzhen Daily
CONSTRUCTION projects for several different intercity railways connecting Shenzhen, Dongguan and Huizhou have been progressing slowly, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported.

Work on a 99.8-kilometer rail line connecting Dongguan and Huizhou, for example, began in May 2009 and was scheduled for completion at the end of last year, but the railway’s opening has been delayed twice. The line is now due to open next year.

That line includes a 33.3-kilometer section in Huizhou that will include seven stations and so far has seen smooth construction. But work on a Dongguan section that will span more than 60 kilometers was suspended in March, because of several collapses.

When construction will start on a Shenzhen International Airport railway station that will provide connections to Guangzhou and Dongguan is unknown, the paper said.

That rail line will enter Dongguan through Xintang and reach Shenzhen’s airport after passing through several towns and subdistricts in Dongguan.

Separately, construction has not started on another railway connecting Shenzhen and Huizhou. According to plans unveiled in 2010, the 113-kilometer railway will cost more than 29.7 billion yuan (US$4.7 billion) and is due to open before the end of 2020, with speeds of 200 kilometers per hour.

However, that railway is still in planning stages, according to Shenzhen’s development and reform commission.

Shenzhen and Huizhou have not yet reached consensus on funding of railway projects or on how to generate profits after they’re completed, the paper said, citing an unidentified source with the commission. Shenzhen doesn’t expect heavy demand along the planned line to Huizhou, because Shenzhen Metro’s Line 3, the Longgang Line, likely will be extended to reach Huizhou.(Martin Li)

Modified Phase 3 Metro Construction Plan

Newly added:
Guangming Line with modified route and its south extension from Shenzhen North to Science Museum
Bantian Line with modified route(old route on the map) from Pinghu to southwest Shenzhen
Shekou Line east extension to from Xinxiu to Liantang East
Longgang Line east extension from Shuanglong to Pingdi
Meilin Line west extension from Hongshuwan to somewhere in Qianhai

Possibly:
Longhua Line from Qinghu to Guanlan Central
Yantian Line may be kicked out from Phase 3

Phase 3 construction period will then be extended as well. (formerly from 2011 to 2016)
now it is expected to be finished in 2018
Therefore, Phase 4 will be started later (possibly 2018 or 2020) with Nanbao Line(Line 10), Shajing Line(Line 13) and Eastern Express Line(Line 14) (Yantian Line is still to be considered in Phase 3)

Part of the modified plan of Phase 3:
blue lines are operating or under construction
red lines are waiting to be added

Metro extension

SHENZHEN Metro’s Longgang Line will be extended southward from Yitian Station to the Futian Free Trade Zone area to ease commuting problems for area residents, Metro planners announced.

The extension plan is included in the city’s Metro Phase III construction plan and will start after approval from upper-level authorities.

The Futian Free Trade Zone along the Shenzhen River is often regarded as a “forgotten corner” because buses can’t enter the area through nearby tunnels because of height restrictions, even though tens of thousands of people live in the area.

Shekou Line rated best Metro service
Quote:

2013-April-25 08:53 Shenzhen Daily
Han Ximin

[email protected]

SHEKOU Line, the Metro line that links Xinxiu in Luohu District with Shekou in Nanshan District, was rated the best among five local Metro lines for comfort, punctuality, cleanliness and interchange convenience in a service index report by the city’s public transportation department.

Shekou Line received 88 points in the report, four more than the 84 points accumulated by the second-place Longhua Line, which is often criticized for overcrowding and delays. The report evaluated the city’s public transportation services from January through March and is said to be the first of its kind in China.

The report covers Metro, bus and taxi services and addresses local public service levels along with public transport achievements and shortcomings, and the service of public transport companies, Shenenzhen’s transport commission spokesperson Lou Heru said Monday.

“The overall service index in Shenzhen for the first quarter was 79.3, showing city transport services are at a relatively good level,” Lou said.

The service index was developed through six rounds of surveys of 90,000 residents, beginning in the second half of 2012, and covers different steps in commuting, such as waiting for transport, riding and transferring between services.

“Different people have different levels of tolerance for crowds, waiting times and quality of interchanges, which might be the reason that Longhua Line still ranks second even though it’s had more incidents than other lines,” said Zhao Xuegang, a supervisor with Shenzhen’s transportation planning and design research institute.

Among the three public transport modes, local taxi services got the highest cumulative mark, of 84.7, while buses got the lowest, of 76.5. Five bus routes operated by Shenzhen Eastern Bus Group — E6, B671, 811, M306 and M280 — had the lowest service rankings. Route E6, from Futian Transport Hub to Tongle in Longgang District, was criticized for having long waits and a shortage of buses.

Tram work to start this year

CONSTRUCTION of tram tracks is scheduled to start in Longhua New Area by the end of this year. Trams are expected to be put into use in the new area next year, with speeds close to Metro trains’.
Powered by electricity, the trams will run without an overhead pantograph — the device mounted on top of trams that connects with wires — on greenbelts in the middle of urban roads, said Zhao Penglin, head of the city’s rail construction office.
Trams are staging a comeback worldwide thanks to increasingly severe traffic congestion and pollution from vehicle exhaust. They also are considered cost-effective and a relatively environmentally friendly mode of public transport.
The cost of building Metro lines in Shenzhen is 700 million yuan (US$113 million) to 800 million yuan per kilometer. In contrast, it will cost only about 100 million to 120 million yuan per kilometer to build a tram line. (SD News)

I assume that they will use the APS system but so far there is no further information available. At least not in English. I already can imagine the traffic chaos on the streets up in the north of Shenzhen if there is a tram riding on greenbelts in the middle of the streets. Also asking myself where they get the space for those greenbelts. If they narrow down the road to one lane in each direction the traffic is going to be even worse than now. Looking foward to their plans.
