Yes. However, it will be joined by Beijing Line 16 at the end of this year. In 2017, Wuhan Line 5 and Guangzhou Line 13 will join the 8A club. 8A is going nationwide!

I think major China's cities should have lines with only 8A-car trains.

Just noticed on the Shum Yip Upperhills Thread that they seem to be starting work on the temporary road realignment to make way for the cut and cover construction for Cable TV Station Station on Line 10. (Bottom Right)

Great news about Phase IV! Question: Is there a map visualizing this phase? I'd be very interested in seeing one, but between my lack of experience in both Shenzhen geography and Chinese I am having a hard time figuring out what this Phase would look like. Is there someone who can understand Chinese who can find a map of this phase? I'd be immensely grateful.

Travelers to Hong Kong through Shenzhen Bay Checkpoint will have a chance to take Metro Line 13, which will link Shenzhen Bay Checkpoint and Shiyan and Guangming. The 40.9-kilometer line will be extended north and connect with a Metro line in Dongguan.

The 27.1-kilometer Line 15 links Shenzhen Hi-tech Industrial Park in Nanshan District, Qianhai and Bao’an CBD, while Line 16, which runs 27.6 kilometers, links Universiade New Town and Pingshan New Area. It is an important line for the city’s eastern development. Line 17 links Luohu CBF with Pinghu, Longgang, while Line 20, a 12-kilometer line in northern Bao’an, starts from future terminal 4 of Shenzhen airport and will be connected with a stop in Dongguan

Lines 13 and lines 20 will connect to which Dongguan lines?

You can just about see the SZMC (Shenzhen Metro Group) logo hidden under the bottom right.

Nice that it matches with the one on the MTR Shenzhen website: https://www.mtr.com.hk/en/corporate/...ncy/szmtr.html (much higher resolution). Finally there might be some consistency in the maps! At the moment, the stations on every line, plus the trains on each line all seem to have a completely different style of map!

New Official Metro Map

Here's the picture of the new official map that I took yesterday on line 4, the red line (Longhua Line):


Compared to the one previously posted:


There are some differences. And I'm glad they got rid of much of the stuff in the real version they're sticking to the inside of the trains. Such as if the second (older) one is showing "Culture & Art" spots, why didn't they put one of those symbols at Dafen station on line 3, where the Dafen Oil Painting village is located? That's one of Shenzhen's more special "Culture & Art" locations.

The official map that is now being installed in the trains and stations, which seems to have come from that older digital version, were obviously done by hand, where the editor manually placed all the station dots - some of the station dots are not aligned. I would think Chinese metro companies would have software that automatically creates these maps for them nowadays, but I guess they're still relying on manual labor to do it, resulting in coarse maps. If they would only automate it, everything would be aligned perfectly and it would appear more professional... Or at least create software that "fixes" the station dots to the lines allowing the user to simply drag the dot back and forth along the line to its proper location. Then there wouldn't be any alignment discrepancies.

Also note the stickers in Chinese saying "opening in the middle of 2016" (line 11) and "opening at the end of the year" (lines 7 and 9) in the real map in the picture I took.

And on line 7 - Fulin station is noted as not being open yet, probably due to the continuing legal battles surrounding that particular station. I remember reading the news about how the local people were protesting that station like crazy - anyone know what the outcome of that case was?

Anyways, what a crazy spider web! Looking more like Beijing and Shanghai now! Great job Shenzhen!

The last new segment of the Shenzhen subway opened 2011.06.28.

The five-year drought is the longest of any Chinese subway.

But a over 100km expansion is one of the largest in Chinese history while keeping in mind this time there was no event or stimulus package to motivate the expansion. As I have said before Shenzhen expands in bursts. Last time was over 100km opened in 2011. Today it is 100km opening in 2016. The next 100km is in 2020. Phase 4 for some reason will bring more lines online by 2022 only 2 years later (not that it is a bad thing) if all goes to plan.
