Big-dog, do you know when will construction works start in Songjiang? I'd like to see it by myself the next time I come to China.

Ok, if so, when I come to Shanghai in summer (I hope so much), I won't still see any works in process.

Note how wide the space between the tracks is. Also how huge the construction plot is... and still a road passes both sides.

Can someone explain the signs to the right? No horn, but what is the sign to the right of that? Car and what is under the car?
Also, who is that 60 for, and who is 40 for?

In my city, next month a main central city street is shut till autumn. For overhaul of an existing tram line. It also is to be permanently narrowed.

We have to wait till the completion to see the plot design. As for the signs, I guess (can't see clearly) the right of the "No Horn" is "No sedan cars". The side roads might be closed to sedan cars due to constructions. Number 60 and 40 mean speed limit for respective lanes.

Going to Shanghai in the summer to be roasted in the scorching heat? Remember over 40 40-degree days last year.

For me it's OK. It is the only city I can tolerate heat in.

It's really bad to see a fake tram in Beijing.

Thankfully other cities are real trams, including rubber tired tram in Tianjin & Shanghai.

CNR signs tramcar contracts with Ethiopia

(Xinhua)

BEIJING - Chinese train manufacturer CNR Corporation (CNR) has signed contracts with Ethiopia to provide 41 modern tramcars, marking the entry of Chinese tramcars into Africa, CNR said Monday.
The tramcars will be customized for use in Ethiopia's capital of Addis Ababa, where the altitude is 2,400 meters and ultraviolet light is strong, according to CNR's statement.
According to CNR, the tramcars are the world's most sunlight-resistant and will use special components in the glass, rubber, paint and cable. They can travel at a maximum of 70 kilometers per hour.
CNR will deliver its first batch of tramcars to Ethiopia at the end of 2014.
CNR, one of the largest train makers in China, manufactures a range of products, from locomotives to high-speed trains, which have been widely used for the country's railway services.
The company's net profits totaled 2.39 billion yuan ($391 million) in the first three quarters of 2013, up 1.81 percent year on year.

That tram looks like Urbos 3 (The one that runs in Zaragoza among other cities).
