Especially considering how you can get to Nanjing in half the time from Shanghai...

Yeah Line 11 is one of those lines that desperately needs a parallel express service or do what they do with Line 16 and have express trains bypass stations on a side track that switches off the main track at a station

Parallel express service along the full line? I don't think so.

Pure Alstom models, rather dull in terms of look.

Shanghai Daily



A tram passes in front of the Kai Yuan Med Shopping Center during a trial run of Shanghai’s new tram line, the T2 in Songjiang District yesterday. Fifty local residents took part in the run covering four stops — Jiangxue Road, Xilin Road N. , Kai Yuan Med Shopping Center and Wenhui Road — over more than 2.5 kilometers. The district information office said the service from Canghua Road Station on T1 to Longma Road Station on T2 would be tested in early 2018. Both lines are expected to begin pilot operations in November next year. Shanghai revived its historic tram system in 2010 with the Zhangjiang Tram service, still the only line in operation.

Line 14 is due for 2020. By then, Shanghai metro should be 800 km long (including lines 15 and 18, not shown).

Now cars can fill up with biodiesel
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
October 31, 2017

FIRST the buses. Now the cars. Transport is getting ever greener in the city.

Now private vehicles are able to run on a mixture of biodiesel fuels following more than 100 buses already on Shanghai roads that are doing so.

Two Sinopec gas stations, in Fengxian District and the Pudong New Area, started offering the B5 hybrid fuel to the public yesterday in a trial.

The fuel is a combination of 95 percent of regular diesel and 5 percent biodiesel, which is made from swill oil. Regular diesel is priced at 6.02 yuan (91 US cents) per liter, while the hybrid fuel is 5.72 yuan, which includes a 5 percent discount to encourage more people to use it.

Twenty sanitation trucks were fueled with biodiesel at the Fengxian Sinopec station yesterday, each being filled up with 60 liters. The station has already stored 10 tons of the hybrid fuel.

“The scheme is energy efficient, and it also helps prevent swill oil from being collected and flowing onto dining tables,” said Zheng Shusong, deputy secretary-general of the Shanghai Food Safety Commission, which coordinates the project.

The major concern from drivers is the safety and performance of biodiesel.

“The B5 hybrid fuel has almost the same performance in driving force and consumption as regular diesel based on our research results on more than 100 buses which have already been powered by the fuel,” Zheng said.

Lou Diming, head of the Internal Combustion Engine Research Institute from Tongji University, said the buses did not experience any problems after using the fuel.

“In addition, their discharge of heavy metal and fine particulate matters dropped more than 10 percent compared with those using regular diesel,” Lou said.

There are 104 buses powered by biodiesel fuel in Shanghai as of the end of September, and they had run 15.61 million kilometers in total, using 5.84 million liters of the combined fuel. Thirty-two sanitation trucks, which are also using the B5 hybrid fuel, had run 83,100 kilometers in total, consuming 23,800 liters of the fuel.

It seems Line 17 has been officially named as Qiangpu Line according to station signages.

I have seen lots of designations for this line since I joined this forum (back then there were no lines 12, 13 (except for the Expo section) or 16, and line 11 ended at Jiangsu Lu). Qingpu Line was the first name I saw, some time after it became line 20 and then line 17. I've also seen it as the Western section of line 2. The same thing happens with line 16, which I saw previously as the Southern section of line 11, Lingang line and line 21.

It is funny indeed how inaccurate those metro maps are since line 17 is over 35 km long, which means it is 3 - 4 times larger than that.

Line 14 is almost the same length in fact. But it is drawn way longer.

If you're referring to the map above, line 14 is ~10% shorter than line 17 which is about right. And yes, I measured it .
