three lines(6,8,9-initial segment) and hopefully the beltway line4 would all start running by the end of 2007

today, the German newspaper "sueddeutsche Zeitung" ( southgerman Newspaper--haha) reports, that construction for the extension to Honquiao has already started and that between 6000-8000 families are moving out of their homes right now.

The ariticle states, that the maglev platforms at Shanghai south railway station are already complete (?????)
Altogether the line from Longyang Road staion to Honquiao is 37 km and hast three staions. ( Honquiao-Expo- and South Station )

The strangest aspect is, that the start building the extension of the transrapid maglev line without the german transrapid cosortium knowing about it.!!!!!

I wouldn't be surprised if the consturciton of the buildings have already been planned and started. All that'll be missing will going to be the tracks.

i think the Chinese are confident that they will come to a deal with the Germans.

City's 2nd maglev approved to link airport
By Winny Wang 2007-3-22

CHINA'S top planning body has approved the construction of a maglev stretch from Longyang Road to Hongqiao Airport in Shanghai, as part of the Shanghai-Hangzhou maglev project, 21st Century Business Herald reported today.

The city government began relocating residents and setting aside land for the stretch in October 2006, the report quoted an anonymous insider as saying.

The stretch will start from Longyang Road Station, the terminal of the current maglev line that links Longyang Road and Pudong International Airport, across the World Expo site, Shanghai South Railway Station to Hongqiao Airport.

Construction on the stretches from downtown Shanghai to Jiaxing, and from Jiaxing to Hangzhou, may begin after 2010, the report said.

The approval of the Shanghai stretch is partly because of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, which is expected to host 70 million people from overseas countries and regions from May 1 to October 31, 2010, the report said.

"Transport during the Expo will depend on Metro lines, especially lines linking the Expo site to airports and railway stations," said Sun Zhang, a professor of Tongji University.

Actually I have been looking for Maglev construction sites but now been able to find it yet. Does anyone have a map of the exact stretch of the Pudong-Hongqiao Maglev rail?

I've been fooled many times since the metro station construction sites have pictures of Bullet- and Maglev trains on the billboards. There are more than a hundred metro stations under construction in Shanghai right now which makes it even more hard.

Um, actually I was at the Longyang Lu Zhan a couple of weeks ago and didn't notice any construction whatsoever. There are even some buildings blocking the way where the maglev rail will supposedly be extended.

those Buildings at LongYang road Station will be the first to be scrapped.

From what I heard, the officials say that it was a planning mistake in 2004, that those buildings were erected there.



you can see these buildings on the very left

Send us pictures, as soon as you see construction, or destruction starting there.....

What a good planning mistake! Those poor residental buildings will only have 4-year's life. People who's planning this should get shot.

well, I wouldn`t take it too serious, I have seen mistakes like this happening all over the world.

I would be intersested in knowing when exactly those building will be erased.

I will be in Shanghai this summer around August, I wonder if they will still be there by then......we`ll see...


edit: I found another picture........

As far as I know these residential highrises are not going to be demolished. The Maglev station will be rebuilt above the neighboring subway station instead so that the stretch can be extended without affecting these buildings.

Wouldn't it be a lot more expensive to relocate the whole station, and move the magnetic tracks etc. instead of just demolishing the buildings?

I believe to move the station is cheaper, the buildings themselves are not an issue, the residents relocation is a big cost.

Shanghai Maglev Extension---the 25 th approval

Time and again, the Chinese government approves the extension of the maglev to Hanghzhou...

If it will really be built...well, thats the question....

Shanghai Hangzhou maglev gets official nod of approval...


This was reported by the CHINAdaily on Thu Apr 26 2007 13:15:00 GMT+0200.

Somebody here who can confirm this?

I thought it was just the Hongqiao airport extension that had been approved so that it's built in time for the 2010 world expo. I don't know about the status of the Hangzhou line.

ah what's the point. Build a 300km/h HSR between the two places and use the rest of the money to actually help the poor.

one line between the airports is more than enough to study the technology.
