Longitudinal seating - would that be a first for China metros?

I think longitudinal seating is seating along the sides, which is very common in China's metros.


The seating arrangement on the last pictures of the previous page (transverse seating arrangement) is not very common in China's metros, but I don't know if it's a first.

Shanghai metro line 16 opening this year will have it. I think that is the first.

Shen Zhen line 6 should connect to Dong Guan R2 and Shen Zhen line 11 should connect to Dong Guan R1. Shen Zhen's Long Quan line should connect to Hui Zhou

Do you know which Guangzhou metro lines will connect with Dongguan metro?

Guangzhou Dongguan metro link

My best guess would be an extension of Guangzhou line 5 east to the Huangpu port area or a link to the proposed Guangzhou line 21 somewhere along the Dongjiang river. Both projects are in the planning stage waiting approval. That's speculation but they are the only lines running eastward towards Dongguan. In the case of line 5 the proposed 10 km extension eastwards should take it to the river more or less.

Dongguan metro will connect somewhere probably either along Line 13 near Xintang, or along Line 5 when it gets extended. If the extension is ever completed, it won't be happening anytime soon. Maybe in 7 to 10 years.

They are building the intercity railway that goes between the 3 cities, which has a major hub in Xintang (I believe may be renamed the Dongguan Railway Station), which is a new station being built along Line 13 and 16. This line will extend from the Baiyun Airport all the way to Shenzhen when completed with lots of stops in between. I think that alone is a very impressive new system being built, and will interchange with many subway lines between the 3 cities. The trains will be higher speed, but they want to keep the costs below 30 RMB.

Zhong Shan, Zhu Hai and Hui Zhou metros are in the planning stage only so that would be a long term plan. If it eventuates then yeah it would a wonder of engineering.

That map is already out-of-date even with its already impressive population numbers. Guanghou now stands at 13.3 mil according to reports I have read. Dongguan also has a local population of 7 mil, but one number that is not tallied in there is the number of migrants working there, who are not registered in the city and haven't taken part of any census. Many estimates put the real population in Dongguan around 10 to 13 million people. The population size is incredible.

In recent news, there are plans now for a branch line to connect to the GZ-DG-SZ line beginning somewhere along Line 8, likely Pazhou, running through the Higher Education Mega Center, and continuing east to southeast. That would place the current Line 4, under construction Line 7, and future line 12 (which some stations were designed expecting this line to be built), and the connection to the intercity metro line all within the University Island making it a popular hub for long-distance metro traveling.

FTFY. Make sure you select the "http://" when pasting a link to replace that, otherwise it messes up.

By the way, four lines are very few for what I hope for a Chinese city. I'm sure they will revise the plans and come up with at least 200 km. Combined with Guangzhou and Shenzhen (And a few other cities more), the Pearl River Delta metro is going to be a monster!

By 2020 Shenzhen’s Metro system will be directly linked to both Dongguan and Huizhou, futher increasing the ease of travel between the cities of the Pearl River Delta after the first phase of the high-speed railway was introduced in 2011.

Leaders of the three cities signed the pact last week that means Shenzhen Metro lines 6 and 11 will connect with the R1 and R3 lines respectively in Dongguan while the existing Longgang Line, and future Line 12, will be extended to Huizhou, Shenzhen Daily reports.

The paper has more:

According to the memorandum for rail project cooperation, Metro Line 11 will provide an express link between Futian CBD and the Shenzhen airport, while Line 6 will link the airport with Longhua and Guangming new areas and will be extended to link up with Dongguan’s rail system. The Longgang Line will be extended to the Pingdi and Kengzi areas, under future plans that also include the link with Huizhou. The projects are expected to further facilitate the integration of the three cities.

The Special Zone Daily reported yesterday that since the new lines were added ahead of 2011 Universiade, the number of people using the metro in Shenzhen has quadrupled. It looks like the local government is banking on its continued growth

The word monster is an appropiate word that sums up the combined metros of the PDR.
