Line 14 will have a station near 798. At present you can take Line 10 or Line 15 and transfer bus (#402) to get there.

Line 10 Songjiazhuang Depot Starts Construction

A 32 train capacity yard will allow for more trains to be assigned to Line 10. Allowing the headway on line 10 to be reduced to a train every 2 min.

Exactly. It looks like a low speed test?

The more I see Beijing map the more I have a feeling that it is built as us, with no careful planning. The system is immense but poor in fact, not very convenient in terms of alternatives. Am I right?

Shanghai metro is much thoroughly designed allowing tens of variants of trips o get to the same place.

I had the same thoughts... there are several lines in Beijing that dont have transfers. You need to transfer twice or even more times to get to your destinations.

It's when you see a map like that you realise how ambitious the plans are. That system looks huge.

Indeed. Also look at the intricate roundabout at the southern end of the line that is allegedly going to join the current, and the future, capital airports. That looks like it's a first.

Are many of those lines going to become more commuter style in operation?

Having a network comprised almost entirely of stopping services is going to leave those in the outer suburbs at quite a disadvantage.

Is it a fantasy map or real plans?

If this would be a reality that would mean some 2000 km of tracks at least.

I have the same feeling. In Beijing you may have to transfer more times to get to the destination where it's much better for Shanghai. I had lived in Beijing for years most of the metro lines are designed based on the popular bus routes, i.e. Line 4 is going the same route with bus rt#25, Line 10 is a copy of bus rt#300 etc. The designer should think out of the routine way and reduce unnecessary transfers. But things may get better when more lines and interchanges are built.

Sorry for quoting but still, is it a real map or a phantasy one?

About 80-85% seem to match other plans for 2020. The remaining I haven't seen before (like the Daxing airport roundabout), so on the whole it seems real, to the degree plans are real. The network is likely to look somewhat like this, if not exactly like this.

Here's an earlier map in this thread. The regular lines are real, as in opened or opening this year, with thin lines planned ones.
