In my opinion Shanghai and Tianjin do not have tramways....They have opted ,I think for the Translohr system which is a rubber tyre guided vehicle.....(all it whatever you like)...A tramway operates on rail tracks.....

Shanghai is already projected a 500 km (or more) network of trams on rail, not Translohr.
6 lines are projected as first phase.

Cool, so China is getting the taste for tram/light rail systems. That is great, even the more if it is done to complement already very substantial metro systems.

Quote:
Shanghai’s Songjiang District is expected to have six tram routes by 2020, featuring a total of 90 kilometers of track, 118 stations and eight junctions. The first two routes are planned to be finished by 2016.

Sounds promissing. Especially as it is considered a part of a whopping 800 km system or so. But tell me, are those 800 km also proposed to be ready by 2020? In only 6 years that sounds insanely big.

Tram construction is hot now. I'm not surprised if 10 Chinese cities add their tram lines in a year or so.

Hong Kong's light rail network consists of two different systems. First - in eastern suburbs - is owned by MTR, but originally built by Kowloon Canton Railway. Opened on 18 September 1988 and has 36.2 km and 68 stations. Track gauge - 1435mm:







Hong Kong tramway along northern part of Hong Kong Island - opened in 1904 and has 30 km and 120 stops. Owned by Veolia and RATP and track gauge - 1067mm:





This system is popular and very congested. In this picture, it shows what happened if tram is broken:

I think this thread is designed for both tram and translohr systems.

Hong Kong Tramways has proposed building a HK$2.8 billion tram system for the Kai Tak site.

Under the tram operator's proposal, there will be 23 stations in the system, which will link Kai Tak pier, Ngau Tau Kok and Kowloon Bay MTR stations in 2018. The fare is expected to be HK$3 a trip.

The tram will be barrier free and able to shuttle along roads, said a spokesman, adding the "modern tramway" is the most efficient road space user.

It will be much cheaper and more flexible to build, operate and extend, as well as more environmentally friendly, he said. The tramway will have a low-floor design, enabling easy access for the elderly and passengers with trolleys, luggage or wheelchairs.

The modern tramway system is an advanced and proven technology, which has been operating in more than 400 cities worldwide, he said.

"We believe modern tramway to be the most cost- effective and efficient solution to serve the particular needs and vision for Kai Tak," said Hong Kong Tramways general manager Emmanuel Vivant.

A spokeswoman for the Development Bureau said it is difficult to offer the space to build a tram system as roads are already burdened.

The company will also have to carefully consider various aspects such as whether the places it plans to build on will be available before 2018.

She also said the bureau does not have information regarding building costs and fares.

That "heritage" tram in central Beijing is really a pity. Wouldn't it have been cheaper to build a real heritage line with some old and restored vehicles from no matter where instead of having such pseudo trams pretending they take their electricity from an overhead, when there is none. It just hurts my eyes and looks so incredibly disneylandish.

Just look at that heritage tram in Anren. Thats how it should look like.
