Metro alert plan

Source: Shanghai Daily | 2011-11-19

METRO operators are planning to install communication equipment at barriers to deter fare dodgers. They said anyone who spots people vaulting or ducking under the barriers should use the equipment to report the fare dodgers.

How many lines have express services? If you live in the outer suburbs and work in the city center, it'd make sense if there are express trains available. Otherwise one would have to make 20+ stops one way, making commutes from the outer suburbs long...eventually we may see a scenario where living near a high speed rail station like Nanjing is a faster commute into Shanghai then for people living in a Shanghai suburb.
Well if thgere's mobile network deployed in metro, you can use the time of commuting for surfing on the web or chatting, or reading books using a spmartphone or a tablet PC.

Well isn't line 22 supposed to be a fast metro-line? It also only has 9 stops for like 50 km of travel.

Metro moving closer to seaside town of Lingang

By Dong Zhen | 2011-11-25

Quote:
A major section of a tunnel for Metro Line 11's southern extension was built yesterday, the Shanghai Urban Construction Engineering Company announced today.

The extension project linking mid-town Longyang Road Station for Maglev, Metro Line 2, 7 and 11 with the seaside town of Lingang at the southern tip of Pudong is expected to open to traffic by end of next year.

It will shorten the time of travel from Lujiazui area to Lingang New Town to about 30 minutes, company officials said.

Currently Line 11 is running from Jiangsu Road Station in Changning District to Anting in Jiading District.

Yes, and pretty slow for it.

Compare Shanghai-Nanjing high speed railway.

From Shanghai via Anting North to Suzhou - 9 stops on 84 km, counting Weiting West.

From Suzhou to Changzhou - 8 stops on 81 km, counting Wangting East and Hengling.

From Changzhou to Nanjing - 13 stops on 136 km, counting Xinzha East, Benniu East, Lücheng, Lingkou, Gaozhi South, Xiashu and Qixia.

And it is 350 km/h.

How long does it now take to travel Shanghai - Kunshan South, with all 4 intermediate stops?

Does Shanghai need more mass transport lines with over 200 km/h speed and under 10 km station distances?

Well, they definitely need to build a Hongqiao-Center-Pudong maglev finally. And maybe also a North-South express connection of some kind, but i don't know much about North-South traffic.

Don't they mean Line 16? Line 11 doesn't go to Longyang Road.

Also, I'm quite impressed that an entire tunnel was built within the span of one day!

Yeah, Line 11 won't go to Longyang Road, but I still think they mean Line 11, because all the other information apply to Line 11.

I think they mean line 16 cause the title mentions Lingang town which is for line 16.

Edit: Just read the post and now I'm just confused.

Line 10 problems getting look

By Dong Zhen | 2011-11-30

LOCAL Metro management is working to reduce the problem of excessive emergency braking on Line 10 amid growing complaints from riders.

Many Metro passengers have complained that trips on Line 10 are uncomfortable because the trains often engage their emergency brakes. The problem is triggered by Line 10's route peculiarities and a current signaling system deficiency, said Shao Weizhong, vice president of Shentong Group, the local Metro operator.

Shao said Line 10 is special as drivers face an excessive number of curves along its downtown route. "Drivers have to be very skillful in controlling the speed so as to avoid causing uncomfortable feelings to the passengers," Shao said.

Additionally, the signaling system on Line 10 triggers frequent emergency brakes without a clear cause, Shao said. He said the system supplier is looking for solutions.

Line 10's operation has come under greater public scrutiny following the September 27 crash in which two trains collided when the line's operation was controlled manually after a signaling system blackout. Nearly 300 riders were injured and sent to hospitals

Metro management later concluded that one of train dispatchers was so stressed by the pressure to handle the emergency that he practically forgot the existence of one of the two trains parked on the track. Twelve Metro officials were punished for the crash, including three fired from their jobs.

On another matter, Shao, the Shentong official, said eating breakfast on Metro trains won't be banned. Many riders have complained about the smell and risks of clothes contamination caused by their fellow riders who chew on their breakfast in over-packed carriages during the morning rush hour. But Shao said there's no plan to impose a breakfast ban because it would be very difficult to enforce.

Underground tube built for Metro Line 16

By Zha Minjie | 2011-12-6

THE construction of Shanghai Metro Line 16 reached a new milestone yesterday when its tunneling work was completed.

The 59-kilometer Line 16 will link Longyang Road Station in downtown Pudong to the seaside Lingang New Town on the southern edge of Pudong.

About 10.3 kilometers of the new line is underground and the rest is on ground and elevated tracks, the builders said.

Metro authority said the tunnel has only one large tube divided by a partition to save cost and shorten construction time. The method is new in subway construction.

Line 16 is expected to go into partial operation next year. It will connect with Line 2 and Line 7 at Longyang Road Station and Line 11 at Luoshan Road Station.

But the breakfast complaints...lol is all I have to say.

Loose wire halts Metro

By Zha Minjie | 2011-12-11

SHANGHAI'S Metro Line 10 suspended operations at 10 stations for more than an hour yesterday afternoon after a loose wire was found hanging in a tunnel, the city's subway operator said.

Shuttle buses were used to take passengers between Hailun Road Station and the line's terminus at Xinjiangwan Town Station, city traffic authorities said.

The mishap happened about 2:55pm after a train driver detected wire hanging from the top of the tunnel near Hailun Road Station, said the operator, Shanghai Shentong Metro Group.

Metro officials said "the wire was twisted with the power supply network and affecting the train operation."

Passengers on the train were soon asked to leave the carriages as emergency workers rushed to do repair work, said the operator.

Shanghai Shentong cut the power along the affected section of track.

As the information spread online or TV, passengers were put on buses from the terminal to downtown, officials said.

Operations resumed after repairs were finished about 4pm, said the operator. The bus services ended at 4:20pm, city traffic officials said.

Shentong said it is investigating the cause of the mishap.

On September 27, more than 290 passengers were injured when two subway trains collided on Metro Line 10. An investigation found that human error caused the accident as Metro dispatchers delivered the wrong orders to the trains.

More services in Metro stations

By Dong Zhen | 2011-12-22

METRO travelers in town will find improved conveniences in the form of stores, cafes, self-service vending, banking and bill-paying machines as well as bookstores in the coming months.

Metro managers said yesterday they were planning a big expansion of such service facilities at Metro stations.

"For example, we are currently in talks with two bakery food brands well accepted in the local market to introduce their outlets to the Metro stops. The stores provide fresh bread, cakes as well as donuts," said a manager with Shentong Subway Assets Management Company, who asked to be unnamed.

The official said local Metro management will expand not only food and convenience stores in the Metro network but leisure and cultural businesses as well. There will be more cafes and bookstores, according to the plans.

Food, beverage and convenience stores inside Metro stations have sprung up over the years and now total about 300. About 90 percent of them are franchised brand stores such as FamilyMart and 7-Eleven, officials said.

And about 1,000 ATMs and over 2,000 sets of self-service terminals and vending machines are also available.

The Metro management wants more such self-service machines in stations so people can pay utility bills as well as shop for discounted cinema tickets.

Some people are arguing that expanding businesses in Metro stations will occupy too much space and risk public safety during periods of busy traffic. Metro managers said the stores and facilities would not be established until their design and locations are judged not to hinder heavy traffic.

Starting today, rush-hour Metro riders can find special Metro store shopping coupons tucked inside the free Metro Express newspapers dispatched daily on the platforms.

The 100,000 coupons are for shopping - mainly for foods, magazines and beverages inside nearly half of the current Metro stores.

The promotion is funded by the Metro management in order to boost development of Metro commerce.
