The plans I've seen at ditiezu ends at Beijing South (High-Speed) Railway Station, which frankly doesn't make that much sense to me. You would definitely want a high(er)-speed line connecting Beijing South with the airport. The new Daxing/Langfang airport is much further out from Beijing centre than the existing Capital airport.

Ideally there should be a "shunt" from Shijiazhuang (Beijing-Hong Kong) to Tianjin (Beijing-Shanghai) with the new airport in the middle.

A slower metro line would be better to go to the centre of town or business centre of town (Guomao), which would be a straighter line. That is somewhere between Line 8 and Yizhuang line, or even Line 8 itself (which would be a slow, crowded, alternative). The terminal station should be on the R1 or connect to the existing Airline line, though that would be a rather slow airport-airport connection. S6 may end up as an airport-airport line as well.

A metro line from the new airport to relatively nearby Langfang would also make sense.

Line 7 Rolling Stock



6 Car B size expandable to 8 cars. Everything looks really good, Chinese subway train design has come really far. However I wish that they opted to paint the train to the line's color which is orange.

What about Seoul? It is supposed to hold the name of the longest metro system in the world so far?

Some sources say 543km for Seoul others 327km...I think it's 327km for Seoul...Even if it's 543km Beijing,Shanghaï and even Guangzhou will surpass Seoul by far

I've heard the figures between 700 and 900 kms for Seoul.

Here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seoul_Metropolitan_Subway it says 981.5 kms.

Ya it depends on which lines you count. The higher number counts the Bundang, AREX, Ilsan, Ansan and Sin Bundang lines. Which qualify as metro lines. The kicker is when the AREX has KTX and other mainline trains running thorough it in February 2014. Then Seoul Metro's higher count will shed 58km.

I am going to add a bit of trolley-bus news.

On the morning of Saturday December 28th, route 127 has officially replaced 104-kuai (104-limited stop service) diesel bus service and become the 16th trolley-bus route in China's capital.

Two shots of the bus stop sign at Liu-fang City Rail Station, first bus 5:00am, last bus 0:00am, route 127 inherited the schedule of 104-kuai. In terms of daily hours of operation, route 127 became the longest running trolley route in Beijing. Trolley overhead in Beijing is deenergized between 0:00am and 3:00am daily, so all other trolley routes are scheduled to terminate before 0:00am. According to one poster who works for Beijing trolley-bus company, the need to deenergize overhead has become a thing of past after the inauguration of route 127, and deergization will only be necessary when major maintenance is done. However so far this has not brought a prolongment of service hours on other trolley routes.





From December 19th to December 27th, there was a transition period when both diesel buses and trolley-buses were running as route 104-kuai, and trolleys were displaying 104-kuai on destination signs. In this shot, on the night of December 27th, coach 95639 has already flipped the destination sign to 127.





Trolleys waiting for their next deployment:



Coach 95630 becomes the first bus on December 28th.

Good news, I hate how Chinese cities are closing down their trolley networks even in the new millennium. Shenyang's massive system was completely removed in the 90's. I would like to see these systems returned to their former glory or even better yet as trams. Does anyone have a map of the new route.

What about Tokyo if you take this lines into account? Does Tokyos subway length integrate thoses stretches where subway is running on surface railway sections?

Also it´s hard to count only RATP service in Paris. At least RER A and B network has metro-standard I think.

It would end up in a scientific research I know, but interesting anyway. Which city does have the most dense network in terms of intervals and km concerning it´s size (inhabitants and square-km).


Kind regards

No Tokyo doesn't, as the surface lines of Tokyo have frequent service but are non grade separated. Except for some, Toyo rapid and Saitama Rapid are grade separated.

Or any good map of the Beijing bus system in general? The very extensive bus system is every bit as critical to Beijing transport as the metro system, and then some, but finding which buses go where is not that easy.
