Why to split line 3? The traffic over there is awful, they just have to build additional tracks. I believe the best solution would be to leave the existing part to line 3 while build a parallel underground part for line 4.

Line 3/4 separation project plan

The purpose is to split the shared section and increase capacity for both lines. The initial budget is 2.8 bln yuan ($448 mln), project completes in 2015. It's not finalized yet the current plan is,
  • The shared part will be used by Line 4 only;
  • Line 3 will be split into 2 parts;
  • Double line will be built between Shanghai Railway Station and Baoshan Road for Line 3 upper section;

Shared section of Line 3/4

Wow the line separation cross section diagrams are very reminiscent of those found in Japan.

What I had in mind was to have Line 3 plow down to Hanzhong road and then serve inner shanghai. Eventually reconnecting to the other portion of Line 3 at Yishan road or instead of going to its original terminus go serve somewhere else and let the Shanghai South Railway Station branch be a the panhandle for Line 4 like the Hammersmith and Circle Line or the Toei Metro Oedo line.

I like that idea too, that area of Shanghai can use some additional subway coverage, in addition it will provide a fairly direct southwest-northeast corridor.

Well, for line 12 we will see Bombardier Movia, for line 16, a new rolling stock (model?) and for the extension of line 11, will they produce extra Siemens trains?

A good solution to the matter will also be to built all along the existing common tracks 2 new additional ones like it is depicted on the lower image.

Some pictures of line 7. I was happy to find out Bombardier Movia on this line, there run 6-car trains being approximately 140 m long

As you might know, each type of rolling stock in shanghai has got its own nickname. So, these trains are called Fanta

So, lets start. This it Zhaojiabang Lu station.

"6-5" means that this is door number 5 of the sixth car.

It is good to see some elements of the train and of the stations having the official line colour.


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/621658/

Let's get on the Movia:



Have one more look at the station:




LCDs seen from behind.



Inside the train. Green painted seats are priority seats for the disabled, pregnant, retires and passengers with children.











Huamu Lu is a terminus. We get off here to go to the Chocolate exhibition but it's a bit off-topic here.





Common vending machines.



The station is a bit odd for shanghai metro. It reminds me much of a Moscow station, Bulvar Dmitriya Donskogo. Usually, Shanghai metro stations are two-level where platform and the tracks are cut off from the hall with turnstiles, ticket offices etc.











District plan:

I was there at Chocolate exhibition. The exhibition center there is very interesting as an object of architecture.

This center is also well seen from Maglev when approaching Longyang Lu station. Yes, I like it, too, the cladding is nice.

It's good to see that China is paying some attention to making stations a bit more originals. Some stations are now well decorated.

Strange, I remember taking Line 1 to Jinjiang Park in 1994. But for some reason, wikipedia insists that Shanghai metro opened in 1995. You're saying it opened in 1993, which supports what I observed. Do you know what may be the cause of the discrepancy on wikipedia?

You took Shanghai subway in 1994? wow that's something to be proud of.

On wiki it says,
  • May 28, 1993 - The first section of the line (Line 1), from Xujiahui to Shanghai South Railway Station (formerly known as Xinlonghua), opens.
  • April 10, 1995 - The entire original line (Line 1), from Shanghai Railway Station to Jinjiang Park, opens.
That may help clearing the doubt.

Cool map. It's good to see that the downtown is getting denser in terms of metro coverage.
