From Rail Journal:


China approves Hohhot metro plan
Wednesday, April 22, 2015

A construction plan for the first phase of the metro network in the Inner Mongolian capital Hohhot was approved by China's State Council on April 15

By 2020 Hohhot plans to build two lines totalling 51.4km with 42 stations and a depot. The 23.2km Line 1 will link an industrial area in the west of the city, following Xinhua Road through the city centre to reach Hohhot Baita International Airport in the east. Line 2 will be a 28.2km L-shaped line connecting northern and eastern districts via the city centre

Hohhot with a population of about 2-3 million is the capital of the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region in North China, serving as the region's administrative, economic, and cultural centre.

According to latest news, Hohhot metro started construction on August 20. For now only the test section of line 1 is under construction. The rest of line 1 will follow later, as well as line 2.

I actually find the chinese name of the city (Huhehaote) funny, while 'Hohhot' sounds like a Pokemon.

Subways May Be the Latest Casualty of China's Crackdown on Debt
Bloomberg Excerpt
November 19, 2017

China’s frenzied construction of subway systems in cities all over the country may be easing, amid reports funding has been pulled for some projects as Beijing pushes to rein in debt levels.

The National Development and Reform Commission, China’s top economic planning body, is revising a 2003 policy on subway development, Caixin reported on Saturday.

The NDRC wants to “raise the bar” for approving local rail projects amid growing concern over a debt-driven infrastructure boom, the financial magazine said, citing sources that it didn’t identify. Population levels, as well as the economy and fiscal conditions of Chinese cities seeking permission for subway projects will be more closely scrutinized, Caixin said. The NDRC didn’t immediately reply to questions faxed on Saturday by Bloomberg News.

Subway construction is a constant presence in China’s cities, with streets torn up to build the capacity needed to transport the swelling ranks of urban commuters. Beijing alone has been testing three lines: a driverless subway, a maglev train, and a tram to be launched in the city’s western suburbs at the end of the year, the official Xinhua News Agency reported in September.

But investment in the sector appears to be tapering off, just as China’s leaders make reining in financial risks a top priority.

Fixed-asset investment in rail transportation has slowed almost to a standstill in 2017, increasing just 0.4 percent in January-October from a year earlier, statistics bureau data show. That’s down from 3.5 percent growth in the first four months of the year. Private rail transport investment -- which makes up a tiny share of an industry that’s dominated by state-backed enterprises -- slumped 58.6 percent January-October from a year earlier.

Cities in Inner Mongolia have been told by China’s central government to halt infrastructure projects, Caixin reported earlier this month. That included a 30 billion-yuan ($4.5 billion) subway project in the city of Baotou, and another valued at 27 billion yuan in the regional capital, Hohhot.
