Qingdao metro line 3 southern extension to Qingdao railway station is expected to open for regular revenue passenger operations by end of month.

Here is Renmin Huitang station, sometimes referred to on English-language maps as People's Hall station.

I see they have renamed Zhanshan to Yan'an Sanlu. I also like how they have a station named Zhongshan Gongyuan and another one U/C named Jiangsu Lu, but unlike in Shanghai they won't be adjacent.

In other news, line 4 is starting construction soon (If it hasn't already done so). The line will run from Renmin Huitang East to Dahe Dong, spanning 30.2 km and 25 stations.

CHINA: The length of the Qingdao metro network more than doubled at 18.00 on December 18 when the southern section of the city’s only line opened. The 12·8 km extension of Line 3 runs from Shungshan to Qingdao railway station, serving 12 stations. The first phase opened almost exactly a year earlier, on December 17 2015, linking Shungshan with Qingdao North railway station on a 12 km alignment.
The end-to-end journey time on the underground Line 3 is now 47 min. Services are operated with a fleet of 24 six-car Type B trainsets supplied by CRRC Qingdao Sifang, with traction equipment and a train control monitoring system supplied by Alstom joint ventures.

Qingdao is known for embracing, let's call it European retro-architecture. This can go wrong and end up looking kitschy and just plain out wrong and out of proportion. These subway entrances however look very proper and nice. Congratulations.

The green fences with the round shaped inlets remind my very strongly of the omnipresent fence elements of the historical Viennese Stadtbahn, which survived as part of line U6, U4 and S45. Can it be that they served as source of inspiration?

Qingdao Metro Line 11 Rolling Stock

Line 11 is a Northeast suburban metro line opening in 2017 along with Line 2. The train is B size and will run in 4 car sets. To fit its suburban role the train will only have 3 doors on each side and have a mix of longitudinal and transverse seating.

China shows us that metro is not the ultimate answer of a good urban rail transport. Metro is much costlier, so tram is the best solution, where population density is lower, and a good modern tramway always ideal.

Many cities which has opened metro earlier, either returned tram after its long ago closure, or beside metro, they have opened tram also. The first category has applied in Shanghai, Shenyang & Tianjin, and the second category has applied in Suzhou & at last at Qingdao.

Personally I like Qingdao tram because of its very modern aerodynamic design, although I don’t know if it run much high speed or not.

After reading many websites I’ve recently saw some matters, which arise some questions and curiosity. I’m asking these because I want to compare the Qingdao Tram with my city’s Kolkata Tram. Although the main difference is that Qingdao tram is a brand new system, just 1 year old, whereas Kolkata tram is the oldest tram system in Asia which is 144 years old. Here I’m writing—

1) Is there any tram conductor inside tramcars for ticketing? Or tickets should be bought before boarding the tram from tram stations?

2) What kind of ticket they used in tram—simple paper ticket or electronic card?

3) Are other motor vehicles allowed on tram track?

4) Are all stops as tram stations ? Or there are some single unreserved street surface stops?

5) Does the entire route is middle of the road ? Or sometimes on left or right side?

6) Is there any special seats for children, ladies, senior citizens and handicapped persons inside the tram cars ?

7) Is there any system for monthly tickets and one day unlimited travel tickets ?

8) What are the fares for a single journey?

9) Is there any plan to extend the tram line? If yes, please write some details.

10) Is there any official website about Qingdao tram (especially in English)?

Qingdao metro is one of the new metro of China, but it is expanding step by step. Currently it is only one line—line 3, but it is a very good route. It connects both suburban rail stations of Qingdao, north and south (although the ‘south’ term is not mentioned), and travels through the city center area. It is good because if the suburban rail service could be disrupted for any reason between those two stations, people could at least travel by metro, in spite of longer distance.

Two more lines are under construction, line 1 & 2.

Line 2 will be opened earlier, perhaps in this year. It will run between Liuhuapo & Expo Garden. It will be a 61 Km. long route. It will cross line 3 at two places—Licun & Wushi Guangchang. So it will also be a very important route, because it will create an alternative route between those two stations, and if service of line 3 will be disrupted between those two stations, people could use line 2 to reach their destination.

Line 1 will be opened after 3 years, i.e 2020. It will run between Emeishan Rd & Xingguo Rd. It will be a 43 Km. long route. It will also cross line 3 at two places—North rail station & City rail station (at south). So it will also be a very important route, because it will create an alternative route between those two stations, and if service of line 3 will be disrupted between those two stations, people could use line 1 to reach their destination.

So in future those two lines will smoothen the journey between cities, and will create many alternative routes. But I don’t know why line 1 construction is taking too much time!!! It has began in 1994, and will be opened in 2020, i.e 26 years!!!!! It is really amazing that the most developed country China still has not completed to open the route. Why there is such abnormal delay, please write some details.

Both line 1 & 2 will cross the creek to reach another part of the city. Will those crossing be underground or elevated? Please highlight about details.

Why they have opened line 3 before opening line 1 & 2?

Please check your facts, Jiaozhou Bay ain't a creek. And both lines 1 and 2 will run beneath the bay. Besides, there are several more lines U/C (4, 8, 11, 13, and soon 6 and 14). As for why line 1 has been U/C for quite a long time, according to Chinese Wikipedia they started a test section in 1994, but then in 1995 the State Council issued a moratorium on new metro lines (dang it), so only that section was built. Line 1 as we know it started construction in 2015, and it happens to include the test section. It also appears it's delayed into 2021.

As for why line 3 was opened first, you know, it received that number in the plan, and they decided to build it first.

For improvement of our Kolkata metro system, I am comparing some information about Qingdao metro, please answer these questions—

1) Is there any system for baggage checking when entering in the station area or platform area?

2) What kind of ticket they uses—RFID token or magnetic paper ticket?

3) Is drinking water available in station area?

4) Are there any display board in platform about next train? If yes, what kind of it—dot matrix or LED?

5) Do they play light music in background at station platforms?

6) Do all stations has side platforms? Or some has island platforms or both side platforms?

7) Is there any special seats for children, ladies, senior citizens and handicapped persons in both platform and inside the metro cars?

8) Is there any entertainment television in platforms?

9) Is photography allowed inside station premises?

10) What kind of fare it is used for, single, return and multiple journey tickets?

11) Do they have all day ticket system i.e. unlimited journey on any metro routes for a day?
