They are removing short services (those ending at Shanghai Huoche Zhan), and thus all line 1 trains will run all the way to Fujin Lu.

Some impressions from West Nanjing Road station (Line 2, Line 12, Line 13). Recently Line 12 and Line 13 stations were opened, however, there is no underground walkway to connect Line 2, Line 12, and Line 13 stations.

Recently? The three Nanjing Xilu stations have been there since the end of 2015, more than a year now. And I already watched the video eons ago, which includes extra footage from Hanzhong Lu (where direct transfer between lines 12 and 13 is avalaible) travelling from Nanjing Xilu L12 to Nanjing Xilu L13, and from Jing'an Si, Hongqiao Huoche Zhan and the Hongqiao Railway Station (n.b.: Pinyin name refers to the metro station, while the English one refers to the railway station) after leaving Nanjing Xilu L2.

Thank you for the input.
The pictures and video of West Nanjing Road was taken in early 2016.
I only had the chance to publish them here now (the video was published 2.5 weeks ago).

One thing I don't understand is why the Shanghai Metro insists on continuing to use the old style turnstile fare gates. No other city in China uses them, and they are such a pain, especially when travelling with luggage and/or small children.

Line 1: 1.37 million
Line 2: 1.77 million
Line 3: 610,000
Line 4: 940,000
Line 5: 170,000
Line 6: 490,000
Line 7: 920,000
Line 8: 1.11 million
Line 9: 1.01 million

Line 11: 920,000
Line 12: 700,000

Line 9 will most likely break 1 million average riders when its eastern extension opens at the end of this year.

Chongming’s Metro link coming soon
March 10, 2017
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



CONSTRUCTION will begin on the Metro line linking Chongming Island with the city by the end of the year, the island’s district authority said yesterday.

The line will run from Pudong’s Jinqiao area to Chongming’s Chenjia Town.

It has been approved by the city government and is awaiting approval by the National Development and Reform Commission, Chongming District director Tang Hailong said yesterday.

The district authorities will build and upgrade roads to connect with the new line.

The line will have four stops — on Fuxing Island and three in Chenjia Town.

The main transport link for residents is the Yangtze River tunnel. But the trip can often take hours due to congestion, especially on public holidays.

Those stats should be compelling enough for the local gov to speed up the construction of new lines within the inner ring road, many of them.

There are 2 more projects. Line 14 is U/C opening in 2020 and Line 19 will start construction next year. More to come.

Signal tests for Line 9 extension
May 10, 2017
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



THE east section of the third phase of Metro Line 9 took another step toward its completion yesterday.

Signal tests on running trains were started to prepare for the line’s operation by the end of the year, the city’s Metro operator said.

The 13.8-kilometer section has nine stations, including two transferring stations shared with lines 12 and 14.

Once the new section is connected, Line 9 will serve as an east-west artery stretching nearly 70km.

It will connect suburban Songjiang District to Caolu in the Pudong New Area.

The line extension will have stops at the city’s major business districts and several universities, including Xujiahui, Lujiazui, Century Avenue, Songjiang University Town and Shanghai Polytechnic University.

In addition to the Line 9 extension, Pujiang Line — formerly known as the third phase of Line 8 — and Line 17 are also expected to be put into operation by the end of this year.

Pujiang Line, at nearly 6.7km, will have six stations, all of them in suburban Pujiang Town of Minhang District. Residents can use the line to transfer to Line 8 to reach downtown.

Pujiang Line will run driverless trains, enabling it to cut interval times and increase capacity.

Shanghai's rail mileage now ranks first in the world
China Daily Excerpt
May 9, 2017

The length of Shanghai metro system is now the longest in the world, surpassing the size of networks in other world cities, including New York and Paris.

Shanghai Party Secretary Han Zheng said on Monday that infrastructure transportation within the city is now an important part of the development between urban and rural areas of Shanghai.

Han added that Shanghai strengthened its position as global port city, with the transport of containers leading the world the past 7 years. Freight transport out of Shanghai's main airports ranks the third in the world. Air passenger volumes have reached 100 million, which tops China.

Comparisons like these are always a bit disingenuous because other cities rely on commuter rail systems to reach into the surrounding suburbs and neighboring small towns while Shanghai relies primarily on the metro system, with the exception of one (possibly more?) commuter rail lines.

Granted, many of these commuter rail systems aren't grade separated and aren't considered rapid transit, but to boast about a city's transit development advancement using its metro system length isn't fair when said city is missing the entire other form of transit (again, with small exceptions).

You can include Jiaxing (~100km), Suzhou (~100km) and Kunshan (~50km) as commuting sources/destinations for example. And there are ~225km/140 stations under construction (Shanghai "Metro").
