It is true that Guangzhou has area of 7434 square km. But much of it is the sparsely settled Conghua and Zengcheng cities. Nansha district is also sparsely settled.

So if you take off Conghua, Zengcheng and Nansha, the rest of Guangzhou is just 3315 square km, and 10,8 million people.

Shenzhen is 2050 square km. And only Dapeng New District is sparsely settled. Shenzhen without counting Dapeng is 1756 square km, and 10,2 million people.

But Dongguan is right next to Shenzhen. Every single subdistrict and town of Dongguan is more densely settled than either Zengcheng city or Dapeng New District. So Shenzhen plus Dongguan minus Dapeng looks like 4220 square km of continuous city. Bigger than central Guangzhou - and much more populous, at 18,4 million people!

How many metro lines cross Shenzhen-Dongguan border (excluding the railway lines Kowloon-Canton and Shenzhen North-Guangzhou South that also cross this border)?

I took a few photos in July. It happens that all photos are from Shekou line

Shekou line train between Keyuan and Hongshuwan stations. I really like the visual information systems fitted on some (not all) trains

So when will the next line open, and what line will it be? Will the Xili line be the next to open? Wikipedia is saying 2016 for all lines under construction, but perhaps some of the U/C lines now can be opened earlier?

Nope, nothing major will open in 3 years. It seems Shenzhen is going to open projects wave by wave. Until it becomes big enough to be like Beijing or Shanghai; projects so numerous that there will be openings every year. I see that happening beyond 2017.

Do you or anyone have an updated SZ metro map for 2020? The Wikipedia map and page content seems really out of date, with incorrect/old station names and inconsistent terminal station names for the U/C lines set to open by 2016.

For example, Xili Station just started construction, and it will be the transfer station for lines 5 (Huanzhong Line), 7 (Xili Line), and 15 (Shiyan Line?) according to a recent post by big-dog, but the Wiki map for 2020 doesn't show this correctly (it says the station is Xi Lu not Xi Li).

Hopefully Airport Line in late 2015. To some of us, we think the part between Airport and Qianhaiwan is progressing well, which can be opened earlier. but SZMC still consider to opened the whole line in one go.
Xili Line is planned to be opened partly, first part will be from Xili Lake to Antuo Hill in 2016 and then the rest in 2016 or 2017
Meilin line will be opened in 2017

Inter-city rail work to start this year

WORK will start this year on the Shenzhen section of an inter-city rail line connecting Shenzhen, Dongguan and Huizhou, local transportation authorities said.
Construction plans include numerous connections between Shenzhen Metro lines and rail lines in Dongguan and Huizhou.
Shenzhen and Dongguan have decided to establish transfer platforms for Shenzhen’s future Metro Line 11 and Dongguan’s R3 Line, for example, at Haiyue Garden Station and Pedestrian Street Station in Dongguan’s Chang’an Township.
Shenzhen Metro Line 6, linking Shenzhen North Station and Songgang Subdistrict in Longgang District, will have a transfer platform at Lilin Station on the Dongguan R1 Line.
Huizhou’s Metro Line 6 will have a transfer platform with the future Shenzhen Metro Line 14, which will link Gangxia North Station and Kengzi Subdistrict in Pingshan New Area.
Shenzhen’s existing Longgang Line will be extended to the Pingdi and Kengzi areas under future plans that also include the link with Huizhou.
Additionally, the future, regional Metro Line 12 in Longgang District will offer a connection with Huizhou rail, Shenzhen Special Zone Daily reported, quoting Shenzhen rail construction officials.
According to a rail project cooperation agreement signed by leaders of the three cities earlier this year, Metro Line 11 will provide an express link between central Futian District and Shenzhen’s airport, while Line 6 will link the airport with Longhua and Guangming new areas and will be extended to link with Dongguan’s rail system.
Construction of the Huizhou part of the intercity rail line will start in 2015. The line will start at Huiyang in Huizhou and travels to Luohu and Longgang districts.
The projects are expected to further facilitate the integration of the three cities.
Shenzhen’s Metro Line 11 is expected to cost about 33.2 billion yuan (US$5.41 billion), span 51.6 kilometers and be finished by the end of 2016. Part of the line is scheduled to open for trials at the end of 2015.

They should connect Zhaoqing to Foshan and to Guangzhou, although they not become one megacity, they could at least share transportation systems...

"Transfer platforms"?

That´s a problem - what´s needed is same train running through.

Longhua Line to launch 6-carriage trains before Spring Festival in 2014

2013-October-22 08:53 Shenzhen Daily
Han Ximin

[email protected]

TWO sets of six-carriage trains will be put into use on Longhua Line before the 2014 Spring Festival in response to riders’ complaints about overcrowding, the line’s operator said.

HKMTR Shenzhen Co. said it has begun work to expand the line’s four-carriage trains to six carriages to increase capacity and reduce crowds. The first six-carriage train has been completed at a factory in Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, and will be transported to Shenzhen for a test in December, the company said in a news release yesterday.

After the Spring Festival, two more sets of trains will be put into use every month to gradually increase the line’s capacity.

Company representatives said the transition from four carriages to six involves complicated engineering related to the door, power, signal and communication systems.

The company plans to renovate 112 carriages on 28 trains and build 56 carriages. It began renovating the sliding doors at the Minle and Lianhua North Metro stations in May, and completed the project in September.

Passengers have criticized Longhua Line for its nearly constant crowds since the line opened in June 2011.

During rush hours, Longhua Line trains can be more crowded than other trains are during the annual Spring Festival travel peak. Many passengers have attributed the crowding to insufficient trains or carriages on the line. There are only four carriages per train on Longhua Line compared to six carriages per train on Luobao, Huanzhong, Longgang and Shekou lines.

The crowds put HKMTR Shenzhen under fire for poor management and inaccurate estimates of passenger traffic. The operator sometimes restricts passenger numbers to alleviate congestion.

Soon after the line opened, HKMTR Shenzhen made a public promise that it would add two more carriages to each train before the end of 2014.
