Are railways and stations indicated on any subway maps?

Where is Tianjin South station, and which Tianjin subway lines connect there?

This map suggests it will open between 2012 and 2014.

They've been wasting time for decades. Line 1 opened in 1980; Binhai Line did not open until 2004.

My mistake, I thought they started building the system in the past few years.

And they keep wasting it! Metro construction in Tianjin is a disgrace and national level shame!! Lines 2 and 3 were supposed to be open in October 2007!!! It is 2012 now and there is no guarantee it would be possible to take a ride this year! And all the meanwhile parts of city were almost paralyzed (traffic wise) because many major cross roads were open to build stations. Open and what looked as abandoned. and that all in countries 3rd largest city (Chongqing due to it's enormous territory really not in contention) and fastest growing local economy averaging over 16% per year for last 7 years. There is clearly something criminal is going there, and I hear there has been some arrests not long ago.

When i was in Tianjin less than a year ago, i was surprised when i took the metro. It looked like it had just finished. When i looked online, turns out it was a slightly older line, that had closed for modernisation, and had reopened. However, reopening happened some time before i got there, yet some stations looked like there was still work going on, except noone was working.

I can't think of anything else then something criminal... or perhaps some of the worst mismanagement ever

Sounds like you took line 1. They renovated and expanded the line in 2006, and recently they re-renovated Yingkou Dao station in preparation for Line 3.

They have picked up the pace slightly with the new lines construction, with most new stations finishing up construction, and now it is predicted that line 3 and the line 9 extension will open in late 2012. They might end up opening line 2 in 2 separate segments at first because of the repairs at Jianguo Dao station (repairs to open the full through line scheduled for completion in 2014). No guarantees though.

Tianjin Metro Line 3 Ready for Chinese National Day Opening

The Tianjin city planning and construction government bodies have affirmed that the new Metro Line 3 will open on 01 October 2012, to coincide with China’s National Day. The nearly 30 km-long line is extremely crucial, as it links two railway stations (Tianjin and Tianjin North) and its planned extension will link to the Tianjin South Railway Station on the Beijing-Shanghai HSR. Out of the 23 stops, 18 will be underground, 4 above ground, and 1 on ground level.

Line 3 zigzags through Tianjin heading northeast. It starts at the High-Tech Zone in Xiqing, not far from the Tianjin South Railway Station, and continues via Wangdingdi, the Tianjin Tower (Tianta), Yingkou Road, Nanjing Road and Jinwan Square, to the Tianjin and Tianjin North train stations. It continues further northeast bound for Yixingbu, the Jinwei (Tianjin-Weichang) Highway and Fengchanhe, finally ending at the Xiaodian terminus.

Tianjin’s Line 3 is a breath of fresh air. Along with Line 2, which is also slated to open within the year, the new lines sport much more space underground, as well as central platforms, full-height screen doors, wider and longer trains, and for the first time in Tianjin, interchanges or transfers. Line 3 will connect to Line 1 at Yingkoudao station, but the major hub will be the Tianjin Railway Station, where connections to Lines 2 and 9, as well as regular rail and HSR services, will be available.

Finally, the new ticket machines for single journey tickets will see an improvement with Line 3. Bills and coins used will be “automatically recycled”, which means that there should be fewer cases where the machine runs out of money or accepts only bills or coins. While there is still some remnant Chinglish on the signs, the largely bilingual system also offers riders more local information in the immediate vicinity of the Metro stations.

Line 2 opened for trial operation today, July 1. As expected there's a gap at Jianguo Dao Station so the line is in 2 separate non-continuous sections for the time being.

It looks like they are using pure transliteration for Latin names.

Whatever happened to Airport Economic Area? That is now Konggangjingjiqu.

photos from here: http://forum.enorth.com.cn/postsShow...readId=3539894 (unless otherwise noted)

Tianjinzhan Station

This is the main train station, marked as Tianjin Railway Station on earlier bilingual maps.







Yuanyangguojizhongxin Station

This is the first station on line 3 heading from the main train station to the airport. In the earlier unofficial bilingual (Mandarian/American English) maps, it was marked Yuanyang International Center.











The next one is Shunchiqiao Station

This is also known as Shunchi Bridge.



Note the terminus is shown as Caozhuang, though the underwater section of Line 3 connecting the east and west sides of Tianjin is not yet open.

Konggangjingjiqu Station

This was the Airport Economic Area station on the earlier maps. This is the current eastern terminus of the eastern segment of the Tianjin Metro, presently disconnected from the Tianjin Metro.

Amazingly, the current Tianjin Metro consists of three separate disconnected sections, as set out below:

1. Line 1/western part of Line 3
2. Eastern part of Line 3
3. Line 9/Binhai Line

Tianjin Metro is operate by two companies (Tianjin Metro Corp. and Binhai Mass Transit Corp.) that might explain the Latin name differences.
