I for one am very interested in the Tianjin Metro.
Could you tell us why Dazhigu Xonglu station is now known simply as Zhigu?

Because Dazhigu Xilu is the name of the street above the station, while Zhigu is the name of the area/neighborhood.

The expansion plans are really massive! It looks like Beijing!

As you can see they are planning a large subway hub below the cultural center (文化中心), at the intersection of lines 5, 6, and Z1. It's well under construction, after lines 2 and 3, lines 5 and 6 are the next lines to open, planned for around 2015. Also interesting are the Z lines, they are longer distance metro lines, similar to suburban rail. Also, the Binhai New Area is planning a metro system of its own, I'll show the map soon if I can find it. Anyway, these are very long term plans, what's guaranteed so far are only lines 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, and 9. They're locally financed, so funding is actually somewhat of a concern.

Long-term plans for the whole municipality:



Tianjin city is in the middle, Binhai new area is to the right. Sorry I couldn't find a better map, I remember seeing a much better one but couldn't find it.

The Binhai subway looks like it will resemble one of a large city.
And the Z1 zig-zagging its way through Tianjin's southwest suburbs is strangely reminiscent of the shape of the Guangfo Metro between Foshan and Guangzhou. Maybe that's where they got the idea?

Long term plans for Binhai area. Currently only line 9 is open, and no lines are under construction yet.

Latest construction pics of the huge metro hub under Tianjin Railway Station, which will serve subway lines 2, 3, and 9:



















































































It's scheduled to open on October 1. It's finally starting to look like a "big city" metro

No, only line 9 will be served at first. Lines 2 and 3 are expected to open in early 2012.

The day has gone and passed with nothing happening, the latest rumors are that Line 2 has been delayed until 2014 due to an issue with the tunnels around Jianguo Dao, so they have to rebuild the entire segment, also, it seems that they want multiple lines available at Tianjin Railway Station from the first day, so it seems like Line 9 will be delayed until at least Line 3 is ready.

wow what a bummer. It seems in Tianjin they spend more time rebuilding than building in the first place.

Long term plans:

Tianjin city:



Tianjin metropolis:



Unfortunately we still do not have a time for when lines 2 and 3 and the line 9 extension will open. People are predicting late 2012 for lines 3 and 9, and 2014 or 2015 for line 2.
