It's called intellectual property regulation. In a way, it's to prevent unruly warfare over who gets credit for what. If left uncontrolled, people will begin killing each other to receive credit for work that they didn't do.

It's true that the systems in mainland China were built after purchasing consultation and designs from Hong Kong's MTR. This is a convenient, time-saving way to quickly get a railway up and running instead of having to design your own and having to test for public response.

However, because China is only just beginning to enter the developed world, people are seeing these technologies and innovations for the first time, and many mistakenly think that they were designed and produced locally.

I think that over time, when China will find it more fitting and efficient to design its own systems, the subways of the various cities will gradually evolve in their own unique ways. We are already seeing it in systems such as Shanghai (elevated lines, platform gates, locally-made trains) and Shenzhen (sleek and elegant stations, I could easily be jealous!).

You can always find a reason to **** someone that you hate.

First,

Basically the thing abour PRC is that they will pinch other's ideas without acknowledgement.
A fact is that
Quote:
HK MTR holds 50% shares in Shenzhen and Guangzhou MTR. The design was in charge by HK MTR. To say copying MTR is so ridiculous.
Then,

It doesn't matter, all PRC cares about is being the best in the world and using other people's ideas instead of inventing their own.
What's "It doesn't matter"? You accuse PRC of stealing other's ideas without acknowledgement and that's a wrong accusation.You can always find a reason to **** someone that you hate.

All words in PRC subway signs are in simplified Chinese and they don't even exist in Japan. To creat a thousand new Chinese words in the same font is much more troublesome than to completely use his own font because he must learn every strokes by the original writer to ensure a consistent style.

Shanghai Metro Update

Aren't two extensions, one north from Jiangwan on Line 3 and one west from Zhongshan Park on Line 2 supposed to have been completed in the past few days? If they were, then urbanrail.net certainly didn't update them so I was wondering if anyone has those really updated pics?

Nice information

Does anyone know why they chose to terminate the long distance (intercity trains) at stations outside of the city centre, like in Hongqiao (Beijing-Shanghai) and South Station (Hangzhou-Shanghai)?

Shanghai railway station is jammed and can’t accommodate any more trains. Plus there are only two tracks leading into center shanghai, and there isn’t any space to put new tracks for the CRH. That’s why they’re selected hongqiao. The Hongqiao CRH Station is adjacent to the Hongqiao Int’l Airport. This makes it easier for commuters to transfer to airlines. (Hongqiao Airport has mainly functioned as a domestic airport ever since PVG opened) Maglev also has a spur line that branches off at Xinzhuang(莘庄), linking the main line (PVG--Expo—Shanghai South Railway Station—Hangchow) with Hongqiao.
