Are we even sure this is an official map? Sure doesn't look like one.

Is there a reason why Line 3 has a different logo?
Longgang Line will be operate by Shenzhen Metro No.3 Line Investment Corporation so it won't be part of Shenzhen Metro Corporation that operate Luobao Line, Shekou Line, & Huanzhong Line.

As far as I know the whole system will use the Shenzhen Metro Corporation logo beside the trains similar to Beijing Subway Line 4.

Great pictures, Scion! I notice some tunnels are squarish and other are round, is that for the tunnels near open air entrance that do not need to support as much weight? If so, how much of Line 2 is open air and how much is underground?

Nice use of solid overheard as well.
The square tunnels are usually cut and cover, and the round ones are bored.

So it's safe to assume the square tunnels run under roads and the round ones through mountains or deeper underground?

Why do they use two colors of lights in the tunnels?

Escalator agony for Shenzhen metro 20
The Standard
Wednesday, December 15, 2010


Xinhua



More than 20 people were injured, two seriously, when an escalator going up at a metro station in Shenzhen suddenly reversed direction.

The injured, who included an expectant mother, were taken to local hospitals for treatment, Shenzhen Metro Company deputy manager Chen Qi said.

One of those seriously injured tore kneecap ligaments while the other suffered back problems. Both required surgery, Chen said.

It was first incident of its kind to hit the metro, which began operating in 2004.

The drama occurred shortly before 9am yesterday at Guomao Station, which links Lo Wu and Shi Jie Zhi Chuang.

Dozens were on the escalator leading from the platform to the concourse three stories up when it suddenly started going down.

The company said both it and the escalator supplier are investigating.

Guomao Station is surrounded by malls, hotels and commercial blocks such as the International Trade Building, and the area is popular with Hong Kong shoppers.

"I heard a cracking sound before the escalator suddenly moved backwards. We were all caught off guard," one of the injured, surnamed Huang, said.

Huang said about 70 to 80 passengers were on the escalator at the time, and the speed as it went down was about twice that of going up.

He said he saw some people immediately run upstairs while others fell and rolled down.

The injured passengers were sent to three hospitals.

The metro company apologized and pledged to provide the best possible aid to those injured.

The escalator was suspended from use after the incident and the company has arranged for staff to check all other escalators at stations.

Charles Wong Kai-hon, chief instructor of the Pro-Act Training and Development Center (Electrical) in Hong Kong, said reverse actions by escalators are extremely rare.

Wong said in normal situations, if someone presses an emergency button to stop an escalator that is going up, it will slowly and safely come to a halt.

An escalator may only move in the opposite direction should there be a brake fault or if the step chains snap.

Wow I've never heard anything like this before. If it was the opposite direction more people would of been injured and the injuries more severe. Like if the escalator was going down then it suddenly went up people would be falling forward with their faces and hands and they'll be rolling down.

This also happened once in Singapore, at the busy City Hall MRT station few years ago. Sounds pretty scary.

Wikipedia says the Shenzhen Metro opened two lines on Dec. 28th, lines 2 and 3. I haven't seen any news about them, though.

From the Hong Kong press :

`Window' track opens
The Standard
Wednesday, December 29, 2010

The first section of Shenzhen's Metro Line 2 connecting tourist attraction Shi Jie Zhi Chuang - better known as the Window of the World - to Shekou was launched yesterday.

More than 100 passengers queued for the first train at 3pm.

Travelers can enjoy free rides for the first three days.

Officials said the first section of Line 2 has 12 stations over 15.5 kilometers from Shi Jie Zhi Chuang to Chiwan.

When completed by the middle of next year, before Shenzhen hosts the World University Games, trains will call at 29 stations along the 35.78-kilometer route.

The system uses light-emitting diode lighting, saving around 30 percent of energy.

Line 2 runs from east to west across Shenzhen, through Luohu, Futian district, Nanshan subdistrict and finally Shekou.

Passengers on Line 1 from Luohu station near Hong Kong can change to Line 2 at Shi Jie Zhi Chuang station and continue to west Shekou.

"To change from Line 1 to Line 2, passengers simply need to get off the train and take an escalator 10 meters away," a metro staff said.

It takes about 30 minutes to travel from Luohu station to Shi Jie Zhi Chuang station on Line 1, and 28 minutes on Line 2 from Shi Jie Zhi Chuang to Chiwan.

Along with the opening of Line 2, all metro fares rose by at least 15 percent.

The cost of a ticket from Luohu to Shi Jie Zhi Chuang has gone up 16 percent from six yuan (HK$7.04) to seven yuan.

It costs five yuan from Shi Jie Zhi Chuang to Chiwan.

Construction of Line 2 began in July 2007, and its total cost is expected to be 18.23 billion yuan.

Meanwhile, the first part of Line 3 across Longgang was launched yesterday, serving 25.6 kilometers with 16 stations from Buji to Longgang. The one-way fare is seven yuan.

A Shenzhen Metro spokesman said the line connecting Longgang to Shenzhen city will open at the end of March.

Shenzhen metro uses same logo as HK metro. Does it mean one day the two systems will join together?

"One country, two systems" will go on until 2047. Not to mention that HK has one of the most liberal visa regimes for foreigner visitors, China one of the strictest.

For the record, it isn't exactly the same.
