There will be 250 km by 2007 and 400 by 2010. If you think about it, this is possible. it has 123 km currently and there are three lines being built in addition to three extensions. the extensions are the northern extension of line 3 to baoshan, the western extension of line 2 to hongqiao, and the southern extension of line 5. the ones expected to open by 2007 are line 6, 8, and 9. This practically doubles the number of services, which accordingly doubles the mileage more or less. Then in 2010, there will be four more lines, but this time, they are mostly regional meaning they connect suburbs to the downtown area, therefore, they will have longer mileages. so yea if you consider it logically, its feasible.

It seems like that in 2200 Shanghai will have the world's most effective railway system.

Weird but Unique Expressway

That is just, probably, an encassing made to make the expressway look beautiful, or rather, futuristic. Hehe.

Railway Network for Greater Shanghai in the Year 2030

In my opinion, in the year 2030, Greater Shanghai might rival Greater Tokyo in population size and urban expanse. However, it's railway network is still rather small compared to the mega-giant that is Tokyo's. I also noticed that the development of these railway lines traject from only a single core as opposed to the multi-polar trend for Tokyo's.

I hope, Shanghai would revise the current proposed masterplan for it's railway network by enlarging it so as to better address the transportation requirements of its ever expanding population as well as avoid future bottlenecks in logistics due to insufficient transport infrastructure.

Not sure if I heard correctly, it was in the news here (Singapore) a few days/weeks ago. Line 8? It will be similar to Singapore's North East Line technology I heard.

No its LINE 10. DEFINITELY.

Singapore's MSI Global is helping out with the project because of its past experience in helping out with Singapore MRT's North East Line.

What if something went wrong?

Most of new Metro, LRT or Monorail, proposed and under construction, projects are with driverless trains.

There's still a staff member on board each train on Singapore's driverless metro line. If something went wrong (unlikely because of the removal of the human error factor) he can manually run the train at the driver's console hidden under a cover. And there's CCTV in trains.

Vancouver and Kuala Lumpur have been running driverless trains for quite some time now, but they are not the large-scale heavy rail trains as in other subway systems. As long as the signaling system is working properly, not having the driver should be OK. From a PR point of view though, it will be hard to convince it's as safe.
