Oooh, sorry for missing that, really faint on my monitor. I think that was the plan thought up by netizens and the government plan is in gray. The actual built line goes from 森林公园 (South Gate of Forest Park) to 林萃路 (Lincui Lu) station on the faint plan, then back to the gray plan at 永泰庄 (Yongtaizhuang). According to wikipedia they chose this because of the long distance from 森林公园 (South Gate of Forest Park) to 永泰庄 (Yongtaizhuang), so they added a station.

Yes you are right, the light yellow line is what people suggested it to go on Chinese forums.

Anyone know if the deep-level railway tunnel between Beijing Rwy Station and Beijing West will be completed this year?

Below is a Youtube Video related to the operations of the Beijing Subway, but is more of a 'people-watching' documentary.

Hi, I'm very interested in the progress of the Beijing maglev. I am wondering if there is any real construction of the track on the actual planned route. I recently (2 months ago) walked all around the Pingguoyuan Subway Line 1 station to look for any construction activity and saw none. I did some research and saw that the S1 line was supposed to be built somewhere near that station.

I am also tracking the maglev construction progress on the Incheon South Korea maglev currently being built. Together, along with the HSST maglev currently operating in Nagoya Japan, the Beijing maglev will be the 3rd low speed maglev build in the world. This is other than the Birmingham airport maglev discontinued in the 1990's.

At http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...835712&page=26 this shows the construction progress at Incheon International Airport in South Korea.

Any thoughts or news. I would love to see some construction pictures from Beijing!

Luke

It's supposed to open by the end of 2012. There's no delaying news as far as i know.

the connecting line is delayed from latest news. For project and land acquisition difficulties, the line couldn't open until the end of 2013.

Railway ministry's focus is the underground connecting between Tianjin Railway station and Tianjin West, which will open by this year.

Any further information on the Beijing Suburban Railway? The Wiki article has little new to add (English or Chinese). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beijing_Suburban_Railway

Beijing’s subway system is growing continually year by year. The construction rate is very satisfactory. Although in starting they only opened 2 lines, but this dramatically changed after getting permission of 2008 Summer Olympics, and now there are 9 lines, (excluding suburban metro lines). I hope, if they continue the trend, Beijing’s metro network will be soon 2nd largest in the world, (currently 3rd largest), only after Shanghai. As an Asian, and a neighbour of China, I’m quite proud that our neighbour is building metro very very fast.

Now we are expecting for opening line of line 6, 7 & 14, which is planned to open before 31/12/14, and the extensions of line 8, 9, 10 & 15. There are some questions relating this –

1) How are constructions going on line 6, 7 & 14 & extensions of line 8, 9, 10 & 15? Has they started? Please post some photos.

2) I heard recently a new line 16 planned, has the construction started?

3) Finally, I heard earlier, Beijing will return tram in 2011, named by ‘Western Suburban Line’, but now it is said that it will be opened in 2014, again someone says in 2013. Which is final? Has the construction started? What was the problem for the delay?

I have seen construction on 6, 14,likely 7, the central part of 8, as well as 10 and 15 (haven't been around 9). Good as apart from 7 and 14 they are all supposed to be opening soon.

I read about the extension that makes line 10 a loop line. How long will this be when completed?

They are digging heavily around all the ring, so it is definitely coming. Wikipedia claims September this year, and that may indeed happen. Wikipedia in turn relies heavily on this article by David Feng, and he seems well-informed and plans haven't changed greatly so far.

Incidentally that article mentions lines not on the above maps, lines 3, 11, 12, 17, and 18, plus the suburban lines and the airport link (between the current airport and the planned one). Real estate agents and similar I've talked to confirm the overall picture (then again they would, wouldn't they). I was in Tongzhou a few days ago, they were talking about the metro line 6, the extension of Yizhuang to Tongzhou, the S6 from Haidian by Shunyi to Yizhuang, the R1 (the express 1/Batong or 6 line, which seems to be on separate tracks, two stops to Tiananmen square, CBD presumably being the intermediate stop), tramlines (saw no actual plans/maps, so this may be wishful thinking), and a new Beijing East high-speed rail station.

A little earlier I was in the north of Beijing, where they were talking about an additional metro line, I assume the 18, and some rumours of extending the 5 line northwards. Compared to the neighbouring suburban lines 5 stops short. But these are plans and plans change.

Thanks. I mean how many km it will be when completed.

Sorry for the confusion.

According to Wikipedia again the existing line 10 (phase I) is 24.7 km with 22 stations, the completion of the ring would mean an additional 32.5 km and 24 stations, for a total of 57.2 km and 46 stations.

Thanks. Couldn't find that on the english wiki.

57.2km must be the longest loop line in the world. Impressive!

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN is a bigger loop, but yes, it is pretty big (and unlike LHC can take metro cars)... I guess it would take about 1 3/4 hour to do full circle. Whether the line would be Bagou to Bagou or something else I wouldn't know.

I was mainly thinking of Metro here. And I guess line 10 will not operate at speed over 186,282 miles per second(speed of light).
