I was there recently and the locals knew nothing about a metro.

Except that they have been working on one for a LONG time. The locals basically thought it was an abandoned project.

Yes, the streetlights and retro analog clock give the station a little classier look! I like them.

I really hope this will get off the ground... Harbin probably has the most troubled subway construction of China.

That has been a long-running pissing contest between Harbin and Tianjin. It must be a huge source of urban pride for each city to be going at it for so long.

Here's a quote from Wiki to maybe generate some interest in the mysterious tale of the Harbin metro:

Quote:
"Harbin Metro is a metro system under construction since 2003, to serve the city of Harbin, Heilongjiang. The first line began construction in 2003. Part of the route follows the original “7381” civil air-defense project, otherwise known as the air defense evacuation tunnel constructed during World War II. This tunnel consists of 10.1 km.[citation needed] Report says that the 14.6 km line could be opened as early as 2005, however this deadline has since passed. In 2006, an official "Initiation Ceremony of Harbin Metro Trial Project" was held, signifying the actual implementation of Harbin Line 1 project.[1] A video showing the construction of the metro can be found here.
In March 2010 the project was restarted, but there is no target date for completion.[2]

Now when I was in Harbin just under a year ago, there was clearly some subway construction work going on, but noone I spoke to had ever heard of anything subway related.

http://www.subways.net/china/harbin.htm mentions some more confusing facts around the enigmatic Harbin metro:
Quote:
According to Jane's World Railways, Harbin (formerly known as Ping Kiang) has a 5.4 mile metro. No one who has lived in Harbin who I've spoken with appears to know of it's existence. An unfinished 9 km metro line has also been reported by Metropla.net. This would be in line with an article which reports a line to begin construction in 2003 which is based on "the original “7381” civil air-defense project of 10.1 km." The report says the 24.6 km line could be opened as early as 2005.

Here, plans for a 17.3 km, 15 station LRT is shown, but not much else. Digital Harbin also presents a feature about an "existing 10.1 km, 5 station existing tunnel", and a submitted proposal to develop it into a 24.6 km, 24 station subway, including 18 stations for the 17.5 km main line (suspiciously similar to the light rail proposal) and 6 stations for the 7.1 km subsidiary line.

Finally, in December 2006, ground was broken on a 20 station, 14.4 km metro. The route is said to follow the emergency evacuation tunnels left over from WWII. This Youtube video shows the subway construction and the old tunnels.

The fact that people in Harbin don't know about the subway doesn't mean anything.

If my personal experience is indicative, very few anglophone people in Los Angeles are aware of the existence of the LA Metro.

But generally they would know why all those big holes with the giant red cranes are all over their city :P

After Lines 1 and 2 become operational, what would be the next lines they'll gonna work with?
