I had already read on deciphered from Baike Baidu about this planned metro system. Currently 6 lines with a combined length of 141 km are planned.

For reference, Baotou is in Inner Mongolia, West of Hohhot and North of Xi'an. It sits on the left bank of Yellow river.

If our (Metrobits') statistics is right, China has 27 metros at the moment, plus another 21 under construction, planned, or proposed.

Yep, I was just exagerating about the "everyday new metro", but is a good pace, isn't it.

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.
