@ Clashman

OMG! That's one huge extension/expansion project. With this kind of major face-lifting, I'm pretty positive Tianjin's Railway Station will not only be one of the largest in the world but also be one of the most modern!

Amazing. I've known a couple of people from Tianjin, and I was almost induced to work there: I'd love to see an overall synopsis of this.

I really wish China should stop rushing their projects, and I believe they want to finish this by Olympics. Projects that are rushed tend to be overlooked in certain things like Quality. Hopefully it won't happen to this station.

Well, the train station project needed to get done. They need it for the new high-speed rail line between Beijing and Tianjin. Also, this will be the the main intersecting station for the 3 subway lines currently under construction right now, (2,3, and the downtown extension of the Binhai line). While things are definitely being fast-tracked for the Olympics, the new Train station was kind of the lynch-pin for a host of projects going on at the moment, and needs to get finished for them to work.

That said, Tianjin definitely gets it's share of short-cuts in projects, and I sure hope that doesn't happen here, (I saw a game from the Women's World Cup at the new Olympic stadium, and while some things about it are great, the speakers sounded a little underpowered, the seats felt like they would break easily, there were no electric hand-dryers in the bathroom, and there were some absolutely idiotic choices about some of the retail locations in the stadium. All that said, it isn't a bad stadium, and there are definitely things I like about it, but it's got it's share of problems, too).

I should have added that my big complaint about the reconstruction was that they built the temporary rail site on the east side of town just a few km down the way from the old station, but further from the city center. This makes it quite a bit further for me personally to get to the station. I don't understand why they didn't build one in the Southwest corner of the city. It's the fastest-growing area of the city proper and is the only area that isn't served well by the existing stations. The temporary station would have had a lot more use there, and would have been able to make the transition to become a "permanent" station much easier. Once the new station is completed, I don't see the temporary station having all that much use.
