But most unfortunate thing is, line 5 & 6 was planned to open in 2013, but it has already 4 years delayed, and still there are no line 4 !!!!!

Most silly thing is that rubber tired trams are expensive to maintain, running cost is high because quicker detoriation of rubber tyres than steel wheel. And most of all in heave shower, it often derails, and skidding on the path.

If they extend this network in future, I strongly suggest that new routes should be on standard steel wheel trams with on rail.

It's postponed to Aug 31 2014.

The metro extension to airport project is completed, now waiting to open together with new terminal by end of August.

Why is Tianjin developing so slowly considering that it is one of the four central national cities ?

The city overall is developing extremely fast. Tons of new areas, skyscrapers, and roads built in the last few years. I agree that the subway construction is definitely too slow.

That's why I wonder. Considering that even "the second wave" cities are building their metro much faster, not mentioning Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

I think it's still significantly faster than any subway expansion outside of China? Can't get too spoiled, you know

I really have a pet hate of them using Pinyin as 'English'. They might as well as westernised/romanised using Cyrillic. Is airport too hard to write in English?

If anything it should be signed:
