A better option is to build a new parallel line.

You need Line 6 and 8 for planners to rattle their sabers at. Early subway lines in Shanghai and Guangzhou was criticized for low use, leading to Lines 6 and 8. Now that politicians know that low capacity trains are the stupidest ideas on earth there is an explosion of Type A subway lines being built.

How feasible is to extend platforms of lines once built from technical point of view? Has this been done before in China?

I believe it has been done in the initial section of Tianjin Line 1 but it only had like 8 stations at the time and the subway stations was super shallow and simple. There is talk for platform extension work for Line 5 in shanghai and Line 1 in Beijing. Any elevated or ground level line would be super easy to extend platforms (like line 5). I guess the viaduct on line 5 has a very large safety factor or is a standard design so it can take the heaver loading.

For how long would they need to shut the line if they decide to extend the platforms?

I just posted my newest Shanghai Maglev video! I have rarely seen footage of the maglev trains leaving the depot early in the morning and negotiating the single track with steep grade and sharp curves.

I spent many hours walking along the maglev track looking for unique vantage points for viewing the maglev train speed by!

Stunning video. I liked most of all when Maglev trains runs along with metro trains (line 2 and 16). Thanks for sharing, I'll reshare that into our Russian section.

I hope there will be run through service wi no need to change trains as it is now.
Many residential building should be tear down before the Maglev line Extend project undergo ,so it is not much possibility for the maglev line to go into the city center.

Why? Modern tunnel boring doesn't require buildings to be torn down.

if change the route to underground , it is OK for Maglev line go in to the city by tunnel ,cost a large amount of money.

But now the Maglev station of the city side is elevated , and the west end of the track is a large resident district , no space for the line to extend , so i think buildings to be removed before the line get extended.

Clearly Longyang Road Station would have to be altered for the line to go underground. But it is very much possible.

With all the fear regarding electromagnetic radiation from the Maglev the Shanghainese have developed, tunneling is oddly probably the cheapest, easiest and fastest way to get the Maglev to Lujiazui, People's Square and Hongqiao.

By the way, what are the openings for Shanghai metro this year? How many stations and kilometers of tracks?

The rest of Line 12, Line 13 to Changqing Road and Line 11 to Disneyland.

About 50km of new lines with 28 new stations.

Since my fictional Dairon metro has exactly the same layout as Shanghai's, I decided to remake that map into a Pinyin only Shanghai metro map. Since I have attempted to stick to Pinyin rules, some stations may be spelled differently (for example Xinjiangwancheng is rendered as Xin Jiangwan Cheng).


PS: During the remaking I actually confused Changshu Lu with Changshou Lu.

Is that really the rest of line 12 so that upon the completion of won't be extended any longer?

Changing road - where's that? Didn't find it.

On the map above, it's one stop to the left on Line 7 from Yaohua Rd (Line 7/8 interchange)

Thanks. That should be a great job then as the new parts of lines 12 and 13 will run under the megadense core of Shanghai.

Wow, line 2 has higher ridership per day than entire metro systems. And this is only under very condensed hours. Imagine if they extended hours of operations well into 1/2/3 AM like normal metros...
