The exterior look is cute but the interior design needs some more efforts. The plastic chairs do not seem comfortable and the aisle in between is too narrow to walk.

I can't seem to find a website for the Songjiang tram (or Zhangjang for that matter).
Can anyone help me with this?

Many thanks

Coolness! I only had the masterplan! Thanks a lot Dimlys!

Perhaps searching in Chinese will produce more results regarding an "oficial" website.
If I find anything, I'll post it here.

Cheers

@ Big Dog:

Sorry, I hate to correct you ... according to Urbanrail.net and Chinese Wikipedia line 55 was opened on August 25th. I have been to Changchun 3 or 4 weeks ago, the line was in operation that time, but the stop at Changchun West Station still under construction ... that could be the missing peace of the puzzle, which has now been commissioned ...

I had already noted that on Changchun thread a while ago. Anyway, I thought this would run above metro line 2 in the future, but that line will run parallel and to the North of line 55. So nothing will beat line 202 of Dalian, which will get metro line 1 running below its entire lenght by early 2015. I thought this would also be the case with lines 2 and 201, but they take sightly different routes.

The news said it would fully open BEFORE 12.20. It's 4 days ahead of the deadline.

Chinese Wikipedia has listed several other cities. I was surprised to see Lhasa in that list, other cities include Ningbo (Approved!), Kunshan (but that's part of Suzhou), Hefei and Xiamen. However it has missing Huai'an, Liupanshui and Zhuzhou. Interesting enough, it lists Shanghai up to 4 times (In operation, approved, planned and shut down, only is missing from the U/C part), and both Suzhou and Tianjin appear twice.

Actually, I read recently that " 2.000 kilometers of tramways in 72 cities had to be in service in 2020 ". On a Siemens document, it is stated the figure of 2.500 kilometers, in the same date.
I also reread an article appeared in the French railroad press in 1996, which said " that the tramway was envisaged for all the cities of more than 300.000 inhabitants, that is 257 cities "

Entirely possible but to get there with only six years to 2020 they would need to haul ass.

It's actually pretty do-able, there is currently over 2,000 km of subway under construction in China right now. So if they can do it with subway then they can do it with tram.

@ intres / CNGL

could you post a link to your sources?

About the Chinese Wikipedia, I cannot find a page dealing with a trm summary ... only one general one about urban transport, which only lists a few cities ...
