The Maglev looks amazing. I think with all the amazing construction in China, its hard to keep track of everything. I just wanted to know if there was going to be a Maglev extension to Hangzhou and would it pass through the 2010 Expo site?

The route joining Hongchiao Airport and Pudong International airport will start building after the Spring Festival, set out from Longyang Road Station, set up three station on the way(Expo Site Station,Shanghai South Railway Station,Hongqiao Station).It will be finish before2010.

The Maglev extension to Hangzhou doesn't have any news.

I'm guessing since they're going to be building a Maglev stop at Hongqiao that it will remain in use for a while? I once heard that they were going to close it and move all domestic flights to Pudong International.

I agree with a renovated Hongqiao Domestic Airport. I believe its current state is saturated with passengers.

Pudong Int'l is too far away. Maglev is not conveniently connected to central Shanghai; with better connections and more transport options Pudong should experience increased ridership.

is that for sure?
they stated so often that they start contstruction soon, but never did so!

Do you have a source for that?
Btw, will the current maglev line stop service during construction or not?

it's for sure.Now, those residents along the line are moving.
The current maglev line will not stop service during construction.

The Chinese Central Government will sanction this project before the Spring Festival. (this Spring Festival is February 18)
The hopeful new route section fabrication cost sanctioned is 1,200 million dollars. The construction expenses of the new route section are equivalent to twice of the magnetic suspension fabrication cost of first, because will build a tunnel crossing the Huangpu River this time, should add and build 3 stations at the same time , the running route will also pass through the city center . The price of the steel went up by a lot than 5 years ago too at present. In order to obtain this project, two companies in Germany have to make a lot of concessions.

The Maglev as a link between the domestic and the international airport? Sounds good and could make both airports practically to one huge airport, but with a lot of airspace for approaching and departing planes.
Has the ridership of the Maglev now increased to a reasonable level or are the trains still driving with almost no passengers?
I must say, I don't like the overhead wire solution of the metro.

Well, if they're extending the Maglev line into Central Shanghai, I think closing Hongqiao should be possible but they're building a Maglev stop there so I guess it will still continue to be open...

It just seems that with the expansion of Pudong International, its just easier to maintain one airport than having to maintain two. BTW, does anyone have pictures of Hongqiao Airport?

Did not mean it, but really the color of the German national flag. The sign color of No.5 Route should be mauve.

DiggerD2,
I took a round-trip today on the Maglev and it was packed with people in both directions. The Maglev also been pretty much full all other times I've taken it.

The Maglev's awesome. . .and the subway's good. It's nice to see a city that's making public transportation a priority!

So, Spring Festival aleady started right?

I mean, it this thing is already u/c, or if they tear down the houses at the future location of it, we could start a Shanghai Maglev under construction thread.

I would be very exited about the pictures

Ok,well, I am far away from shanghai so it would really be up to you and maybe celestar0 to update such a consturciton thread.

Maybe we start with the pictures, and as soon as you made them, you post them here or you open up directly the new thread.

Right now, as far as I know, they sarted to move out the people, so if you want, you could start taking pictures in the area, where the maglev will be built later on, at Shanghai south Railway station or at the end of the current line in Longyang Road...

Shanghai is blooming. It makes no sense to close down Hongqiao.
If only Pudong is operated, I am sure there will be a need to expand the airport or find a new one in the very near future. By operating both airports at the same time, it can split up both domestic and international services.
Look at Taipei, Tokyo, New York, London, Chicago and other big cities around the world, everyone have more than one airports to serve both domestic and international need. If Megalav can connect the two airports, it is a benefit to both airports and Shanghai.
