Installed map of the shanghai metro by 2013.

What surprised me is that the first phase of Line 12 will be from Jinhai Road to Qufu Road stations. I thought it would only open to Dalian Road, which always irked me because that means people will have to cram into the congested side of Line 4. If they make it to Qufu road, yes it will end in congested line 8 but at least there are 3 lines for commuters to pick to continue their journey. Also line 10 is a good not-as-congested choice but I doubt that would last long with line 12 dumping people in to it.

I know they're probably not looking at it in the short term, but might they consider increasing rail density to that of Tokyo's? One thing I really found shocking was how great the interstation distances were (learned it the hard way in Beijing).

In Japan, metro trains are not that sleek in terms of design. They are much simpler and a bit old-fashioned, even new generation trains.

He is not talking about Jap trains, Line is a Jap chatt app.

Line is Japanese, but i originally thought Line was Korean too because my Korean friend told me so.

This is the power of the Korean culture. My Korean friends once told me nail clippers were invented by Koreans and that Esprit is a Korean brand...

Call me colourblind, but isnt this the color of Line9?

Maybe there is a tinge of grey, but seriously.. they should use double colours, e.g. Line 16 should be red+pink (red for line 1 and pink for line 6)

I guess white balance of the camera was not quite right. in reality, they've got different colours, the two lines.

But I agree, there should be another decision for giving colours to lines considering the amount of lines in the Future.

I never liked double color systems but yes they are running out of colors. I think the actual color of the line is on the PSD. It seems to be a blueish green that this darker than line 9 but lighter than line 8.

I know it's common use in some countries, but please avoid the term "Jap". It is very much a derogatory term (especially in the US) to refer to the Japanese. Many thanks.
