Sadly, the expansion of maglev has been less than smooth even though its supposed to bring benefits of cleaner travel to the city.

Shanghai maglev line assessment report under dispute
(Xinhua)
Updated: 2008-01-19 16:39



Controversy over the construction of the Shanghai-Hangzhou magnetic levitation (maglev) train line is continuing following the release of a report that says the rail link will have minimal impact on the local environment.

In a website announcement on Friday, the Shanghai government thanked those who had read the environmental assessment report released at the start of the year. It promised to invite experts to research the public opinions, and open a hearing at a later time.
Residents living along the line complained the report didn't provide a convincing solution to the environmental problems of noise and radiation that were raised a year earlier.

The report, compiled by the Shanghai Academy of Environmental Sciences, focuses on the 31.8-km Shanghai section of the line connecting Longyang Road with Hongqiao, home to the city's second international airport.

The project was suspended in May due to fierce opposition from those living near the railway over radiation fears, particularly as the track would be separated from communities along the route by a greenbelt measuring only 22.5 meters wide.

The new report, published on the Shanghai Environment Online website, which is co-hosted by State Environmental Protection Administration (SEPA) and the Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau, said the greenbelt buffer zone would remain 22.5 meters wide even.

The website is the only access for the public to get the low-profile report that was intended to solicit public opinion until January 15.

Residents living along the line suggested the report should be open to the public until March 5, and biological, long-term safety statistics should be included in the findings. They also requested a hearing.

Zhu Dan, a Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau official, said the bureau was still busy collecting public opinion.

In the report, the maximum speed along the Shanghai section of the route will be limited to 200 kilometers per hour, less than half of the 450 km per hour planned for the remainder of the line to Hangzhou.

The report said the maglev line would not affect water and air quality, and noise pollution could be controlled.

The 35 billion yuan ($4.5 billion) Shanghai-Hangzhou maglev project using German technology, is designed to cover the 175 km between Shanghai and Hangzhou.

If completed, it will be the world's second commercial high-speed maglev track. Shanghai operates the world's only commercial maglev system on a 30-km stretch between Shanghai's business district and Pudong airport.

Can someone correct the thread title to "maglev" from the current "malgev"?

Shanghai's 2 airports on maglev fast track

By Zha Minjie | 2010-3-17 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

THE traveling time between Shanghai's two airports will be shortened to about 20 minutes, with just three stops, when a new magnetic levitation line is completed.

Li Derun, vice president of the Shanghai Airport Authority, said it had not yet been decided when construction of a major extension to the existing maglev line would begin to link the airports.

Allowing for switching trains, it now takes about 90 minutes to travel between Hongqiao and Pudong international airports by rail.

A trip by car takes about an hour in smooth traffic.

The city government was still discussing detailed plans for the maglev line extension, Li said in an interview after a new terminal at Hongqiao International Airport was put into use yesterday.

Li is also a vice director with the construction group of the Hongqiao Transport Hub, which will be a key point for people traveling by planes, trains and buses.

Shanghai has China's only maglev route which is 31 kilometers long and runs between Metro Line 2's Longyang Road Station, and Pudong International Airport.

According to initial plans for the express route between the two airports, three new stations, including one at the Expo site, will be added to the existing line in Pudong.

The inter-airport maglev line is a part of a 199.5km-long line that is expected to connect Shanghai with Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, by 2014.

Zhejiang officials have ruled out this year for starting construction of the maglev service between Hangzhou, and Shanghai, Xinhua news agency said.

A statement from the provincial development and reform commission yesterday said the project had no timetable and was still undergoing extensive feasibility studies.

That's *if* it ever gets under construction, which is doubtful.

Apparently the Zhejiang side are saying the Maglev is still undergoing the feasibility study and there's no timetable for construction.

China produces first home-grown maglev train

Even that this information has already been posted in a railway thread - here it is once more in order to complete the Shanghai Maglev Extension Thread:

Homegrown 500-km/h maglev train delivered - on chinadaily.com.cn

China produces first home-grown maglev train - tv report on english.cctv.com

I would not be wondering, if the extension to Hongqiao airport gets opened much sooner than we expect. Especially since it looks like there has been construction work for a tunnel in the respective area over the years.

the CCTV video said, that they want to show the train during the world expo in Shanghai on the already existing maglev track.

Well--the expo starts in 13 days.

Is anybody here from shanghai, who already knows somehting about the new chinese maglev--did trial operation of the new train already start?

Hate to bump this thread, but the The October 2010 opening of the Shanghai–Hangzhou High-Speed Railway makes construction of the Shanghai-Hangzhou Maglev Line unlikely, should the Maglev Line proposal be thrown out?

I have a question: Why and how was a maglev line proposed for between Shanghai and Hangzhou, anyway?
