Are there any plans to build actual metro to Changsha airport?
Even they are compatible systems airport line has to link with other lines somewhere, doesn't it? Why does Changsha need an actual metro airport line while they will enjoy a Maglev to link railway station and other metro lines?

Links are good, but they are not as good as a direct ride. If there is only an airport line to Changsha South then everybody who comes from Changsha station or various places in central Changsha has to get off at Changsha South and connect to the airport line with their heavy luggage. It would be better if there were an actual metro line that stops and connects at Changsha South but then goes on through the central city with several more stops, including Changsha station, so that people who originate in various places of Changsha or arrive at Changsha railway station or maybe some bus station could get on the airport train, settle down with their luggage and ride direct to the airport without an (extra) connection at Changsha South.

Maglev train can also extend a couple of stations to more central areas to connect with other lines. So what's it to do with the type of systems?

New metro line to bring residents closer to Meixi Lake

Updated: 2015-03-27

Residents in Changsha can reach the Meixi Lake by metro in spring 2016.

The first metro train for the west extension project of metro Line 2 has been transported to the Huangxing metro car depot on March 26. The extension line will go into commissioning by the end of 2015.Trial operations will start next spring.

The 4.27-kilometer extension stretches from the Line 2’s Wangchengpo Station to Meixi Lake, with four stops in total.

Upon completion, it will take about 40 minutes to travel from the line’s Guangda Station in the east end to Meixi Lake in the west, bringing more convenience to people who want to visit the scenic spot.

http://www.hncsmtr.com/channels/6.html
here is an OFFICIAL long-term metro network plan approved by the city government back in 2011, and posted on ChangSha Metro website: hncsmtr.com.

Basically total length of the network will be 456km with 12 lines. 10 lines will be subway lines with 416km in length, and 2 will function as suburban lines.

Though it did not mention when this grand plan will be completed.




And, the network map for lines in operation and under construction

China adds new cities as operating metro system every year, at last in Changsha.

I’ve some questions (arose after viewing some websites). Please answer one by one –

1) Left side, right side or both sides, - which type of platforms are in most numbers in Changsha subway network?
2) Is the network fully underground?
3) Which is the busiest metro station?
4) Which stations have interchange facility with suburban rail network?
5) Where is/are the depot(s) of the subway network?

Ha, the questions . I had long forgotten those. Anyway, you can always search for answers.

1. As like most metros in China, it seems island platforms (left side) are the most numerous along the line.
2. Currently yes. This will change when line 1 opens by August of next year, which includes an elevated stop.
3. I don't know, maybe any of the railway stations. It is clear Wuyi Guangchang will become the busiest once line 1 opens, however.
4. Currently none, as there is no suburban rail either. However, the Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan railway is U/C, it will interchange with line 2 at the railway station (Changsha Huoche Zhan).
5. There is a depot located at Huangxin, beyond Guangda.

I'd like also to post the latest plans: 12 metro lines (2 of them will be suburban), the maglev line, 5 suburban rail lines (with line S1 being the Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan railway), and 6 tram lines on the left bank of Xiang river. Nearby Zhuzhou is planning 4 metro lines, and Xiangtan appears to be planning a metro network too.

Maglev on Trial Run in Central China
2015-12-26 14:43:12


Photo taken on Dec. 18, 2015 shows a medium-low speed maglev train in Changsha, capital of central China's Hunan Province. A trail run started on the 18.5-kilometer-long medium-low speed maglev railway line linking Changsha South Railway Station and the city's Huanghua Airport, photo by Xinhua

A trial run of China's first domestically designed and manufactured magnetic levitation line in Changsha, Hunan Province, began on Saturday.

The maglev shuttles between Changsha's south railway station and the airport, with one stop in between. It takes about ten minutes to complete the 18.55-km journey, according to a statement from operator Hunan Maglev Transport Co

Is it really magnetic levitation or traction?

Wow, I didn't expect it that early! At least not before line 1.
