Don't you mean PRD (Pearl River Delta)? The PDR is something else in Laos.

That's got to be the ugliest metro train in China right now. It's on par with the Nanjing metro line 3 trains.

Do you know what fare cards DG Metro will be using?
Will it be Lingnang Tong or Shenzhen Tong?

Hi all,

I'm trying to find the latest map for the Dongguan Metro system. Is the map posted at the beginning of this thread, which says was created in 2011, the latest map out there?

I found this map (not a diagram), which shows the lines where they'll actually appear in Dongguan: http://map.dg.bendibao.com/ditie/

However, this one seems a little old - it doesn't have the southern R4 branch connecting to Shenzhen.

Anyone know where I can find the latest official long-term planning map?

Hello all Dongguan Metro fans!

I've updated my Google Map future metro line map viewer to show, based on the current plans (and some educated guesses), where the lines and stations will be:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...MapViewer.html

Drag the time scrubber/slider at the top to go forward and back in time. If you're in China, you may need a VPN/proxy to load Google Maps.

Resources Used:
The best urban planning map I could find of Dongguan showing the metro lines: http://map.dg.bendibao.com/ditie/
Same site with links to descriptions of when the lines will be built (and thus when we can expect them to open): http://dg.bendibao.com/z/dgdt/
Dongguan Rail Transit Company official website: http://www.dggdjt.com/
Baike page with a diagram: http://baike.baidu.com/link?url=-0r7...gG-E2Pu_J2kO1q
Wikipedia page with another diagram: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dongguan_Rail_Transit
Another set of maps: http://dg.bendibao.com/traffic/20119...ffic63949.shtm

Comments:
- I had a Chinese friend help me search Dongguan's official government urban planning website (http://dggh.dg.gov.cn/), but we couldn't find any good master planning map. If anyone can find the latest official map (NOT a diagram), let me know.
- Almost all of the resources above seemed to contradict each other. I tried my best to make educated guesses, based on geographical distances and sense, as to what lines went where, how the metro is supposed to connect up with Shenzhen's, and station names/locations.
- In the Google Map satellite imagery that loads, notice that you can see some of the stations already being built for the R2 line. The Donghui Intercity Line (which turns into the Fodong Intercity Line further west) construction is also evident at metro stations such as Dongcheng South on the R1 line (immediately east of downtown Dongguan). Will this intercity line be entirely underground – almost like some kind of super subway???? Refer to this map (also listed above) to match the stations of this intercity line on the map with the satellite imagery to see the construction sites: http://map.dg.bendibao.com/ditie/
- Unfortunately, as again all the resources available seem to disagree with each other, I couldn't really pinpoint where the stations should go on the southern branch of the R4 line, which will link up with Shenzhen Metro at the Mission Hills golf resort area. The Wiki diagram shows some stations, and while I was able to find some streets in the area with those names, geographically and according to the satellite imagery it just doesn't make sense, so I left that line blank except for the Guanguang Rd station. Obviously that particular diagram will have to be corrected in the future.
- You can correctly guess that eventually Dongguan wants the R3 line to connect up with Huizhou Metro (a total of 7 lines being planned) – the route should seem obvious.
- Is it just me, or does Dongguan and Shenzhen have size proportion issues?? These R lines are super super long when compared to the Shenzhen Metro lines! What gives!?

See my post for the Shenzhen part: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=512

In addition, to view the satellite imagery aligned properly with the map, use ditu.google.com or ditu.google.cn. You'll have to clear your browser's cookies and cache in case you've already “upgraded” to the “new” Google Maps (it redirects you to maps.google.com, argh!!!). Do some searches to figure out how to do that.

If anyone cares, here's a slightly outdated (but still very impressive) diagram of the entire to-link-up Pearl River Delta region metro system - over 2000km of subways/metro systems are officially planned: http://www.ditiezu.com/thread-223444-1-1.html

My goal is to add all the long-term metro lines so that in the end we'll be able to see all of China light up in a blaze of metro glory! That said, I'm looking for people to help me work on this!
Adding the lines and stations take a long time, and I know there are other people out there who 1) know these things better than I do, and 2) can fluently read Chinese in order to do these Chinese searches for the required information. Unfortunately, because of my own personal career change coming up and the Chinese Spring Festival holiday, I'm not going to be able to do much more work to this in the near future. Huizhou Metro should be the next one to add.

Please send me a message or post in the following Creative Corner 2D Drawings thread so we can get in touch if you're interested in helping!:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post110358309

The above thread also has information related to the technical aspects of this software.

Be a part of creating THE MASTER PLAN - CHINA: 2030!

Shenzhen spans 2050 square km, and has as of 2010 census 10 357 000 residents.
Dongguan spans 2465 square km, and has as of 2010 census 8 220 000 people.
Regarding the distribution:
Shenzhen consists of 10 districts. Dongguan consists of 4 subdistricts and 28 towns.
2 of the 10 districts of Shenzhen - Futian and Luohu - have over 10 000 people per square km. They are contiguous, so they have 2,24 million people on 158 square km. 3 more districts - Nanshan, Baoan, Longhua - have over 5000 per square km, and are also contiguous, so these 5 districts have 7,35 million people on a contiguous area of 917 square km.
Dongguan has 1 district - Guancheng - and 1 town - Shilong - with over 10 000 per square km - but these two are not contiguous, and neither of them has as much as 163 000 people.
There are 4 more towns with over 5000 per square km. But only 3 of the 6 are contiguous: Gaobu, Shijie and Shilong have just 606 000 people combined on 77 square km. Changan is the biggest town, with 664 000 people on 98 square km, but it is contiguous with Shenzhen not Dongguan.

So... Dongguan does not have a large dense centre like Shenzhen that would justify short, high volume metro lines. What Dongguan does need is long distance lines to connect far scattered but individually important centres.

How should Changan be connected to Shenzhen?

Dongguan will eventually support Yangchengtong cards on their bus system, the same one that is used in Guangzhou and Foshan. The metro will surely use the same system, especially since they plan to have lines connecting Shenzhen and Guangzhou. Shenzhen also will support Yangchengtong in the coming year or 2.

Could any tell us approx how far Dongguan railway station and Humen train station are from the borders of GZ and SZ respectively?

It seem the tunneling phrase has been completed.

I'm awaiting a revision of Dongguan metro plans. The plans of the surrounding cities are already impressive (Guangzhou has 21 lines, Shenzhen 20, Foshan 8, Huizhou 7, Zhongshan and Zhuhai 5), why Dongguan (still) has only 4 lines in their plans? It's too few, especially taking into account it is between Guangzhou and Shenzhen...

Perhaps it's because it is in between Guangzhou and Shenzhen. It is always over-shadowed by its bigger brothers, and can never turn into a fully functioning large city because of it.

True indeed somewhat of a small gear in a large machine vitally important while at the same time largely overlooked at least in the context of its metro system.

Do you have any idea when the metro systems of Zhong Shan, Zhu Hai and Hui Zhou might start construction? It seems logical that they will continue to extend Dongguan R2 in both directions to connect with the metro systems of GZ
and SZ?
