They wanted to reduce the visual impact of the mostly elevated line. Line 17 which is also mostly elevated will use 3rd rail too. But other lines such as Line 14,15 and 18 which are underground will use overhead lines.

The longest metro network in the world gets even longer! Shanghai is opening a new line and a new extension. They are as follows:
Line 9 East, Yanggao Zhonglu to Caolu, adding 9 stations and 14.1 km for a total length of 65.8 and 35 stations. An extra station at the Caolu railway station is planned.
Line 17, Hongqiao Huochezhan (i.e. Hongqiao HSR station) to Dongfang Lvzhou, 35.3 km, 13 stations. Bringing metro service to Qingpu District. This was previously named Line 2 West, Qingpu line, and line 20. Oriental Land (which is what they render Dongfang Lvzhou in English) actually isn't further from Dishui Hu than Huaqiao. I also find paradoxical that Oriental land is the Westernmost stop in Shanghai metro.

These two openings brings the price to become the longest metro in the World to 654 km (the length Shanghai metro has now). Pujiang line (formerly called line 8 South) is opening sometime in 2018.

One of the line 17 stations has PSDs that are separated by walls that are not made of glass. This is somewhat similar to St Petersburg metro, although in St Petersburg the PSDs themselves are made of steel and not glass.

Line 17

Upon further research, it appears the alcoves between the PSDs contain decorative vases. This is a really cool design element and possibly unique for China.

Here is Zhuguang Road station:

A description from English Wikipedia:

Quote:
The station is known for its design elements. An 88-metre (289 ft) long wall painting fills the entire platform length. Although an underground station, sunshine flows easily to the platform level via a panoramic sunroof, which covers the entire ceiling. The single island platform is 23 metres (75 ft) wide, and unlike other island platforms, there are no support columns along the middle of the platform. These columns were instead placed between the platform and the tracks, also serving as pilasters for the platform screen doors.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhuguang_Road_Station

Zhaoxiang Station is elevated and has simple-looking PSD:

More photos of beautiful Line 17 Zhuguang Road station. I just can't get enough of this station. Whoever decided to let natural light into the station and to fill it with art deserves an award.

Another new thing today - at Hongqiao Airport T2 station, a middle platform has opened allowing cross-platform transfer between Lines 2 and 10.

For eastbound trains, doors will open on both sides of the train.

@CNGL:
Do you include Jinshan Line in your figures? With the Jinshan line my figures are: 688,54 km, and without the Jinshan LIne: 632.14 km
By the way, my numbers for Beijing are: 593 km

I don't include the Jinshan railway as it is that, a railway. However there is still a 22 km discrepance between your 632 km figure and my 654 km figure, I don't know where it could be. English Wikipedia gives a figure of 666 km , yet another 12 km difference. I suspect all three figures (at least mine and Wikipedia) don't include the Maglev. Note that I don't have my maps avalaible now, I have to transfer them from my old computer, so the 654 km figure is provisional. However, your Beijing figure is close to my (provisional) figure of 594 km. Wikipedia lists it at 608 km, however it includes the Xijiao tram line, which I don't count.

I guess Shanghai will announce lines 26-30 within 2 or 3 years.

The data I use for Shanghai are:
1-36.4, 2-63.8, 3-40.3, 4-33.7, 5-17.2, 6-32.3, 7-44.2, 8-37.4, 9-64.2, 10-35.4, 11-82.4, 12-40.4, 13-22, 16-59, 17-35.34

If we add all these numbers, and if we subtract 12 km shared for lines 3 and 4, then the result is: 632,14km.

The number for Line 9 in wikipedia (in English) is: 77,6km, but in Chinese is 64,4 and in urbanrail is: 63,8 --> 64km. So I take the Chinese/urbanrail data.

In the chinese wikipedia the total is: 637km, closer to my figure than the English wikipedia figure...

I do not count the Jinshan Line nor the Maglev Line...
I really think that the 666km figure is wrong.
What do you think?

Well, the English Wikipedia contradicts itself: The Shanghai metro article lists line 9 as 77.6 km long, however the line 9 article lists it as 63.8 km. Anyway they have lowered the total length to 645.7 km, so I definitely need to revise downward my 654 km figure.

Edit: Wow, somehow I added 17 km to line 17 out of nowhere -_-. So my revised figure is 637 km, which matches that of both Baike Baidu and Chinese Wikipedia.

Based on the maps now installed in the stations, the southern extension of Line 5 (Dongchuan Rd - Nanqiao Xincheng), the northern extension of Line 10 (Xinjiangwancheng - Jilong Rd), and the eastern extension of Line 13 (Shibo Ave - Zhangjiang Rd) will also open sometime this year, as all three are now shown on the maps.
