Finally they use those glass as fence not those tacky chrome bars. And as for the LCD screens, err why Samsung? They could of used Haier or TCL.

Nice! They used Viewsonic as their computer monitor, my brand of monitor. I wonder if they are going to used Maglev as their future metro trains besides the one being used in the Pudong Int'l Airport?

What's the difference between the red and the dark purple line in the maps looking towards the southwest? Different tracks or trains?

So the rest of Line 4 is to open by the end of this year? Excellent!

Shanghai's metro is amazing. And it keeps growing.

The line 6 trains look almost identical to the Alstom trains (photo) on the Warsaw metro.

Tracks on Line 1 and Line 5 are both dead ended at Xin-zhuang, parallel transfer must be made across the platform, but it is under one roof and within fare paid area, i.e. passengers who continue their journey don't have to exit the station, they just have to walk up the escalator, cross the lobby and walk down the escalator again onto the other platform, and fare is calculated based on the distance traveled regardless of whether transfer is made or not. Xin-zhuang is deliberately set as the permanent terminal for Line 1, any extension from this point onwards will certainly paralyse an already over loaded system. Besides Line 1 and Line 5 are operated and managed by two different companies.

Good progress, but still very small metro for such a large city.

SHANGHAI METRO

Shanghai metro is growing rapidly. The metro development and culture is a part of Shanghai's cosmopolitan life, as a younger brother to the world's older metro systems, there are numerous things that can interact in between.

The Shanghai subway is one of the youngest in the world and is among the most rapidly expanding. After the first line opened in 1995 as a north-south axis from the Central Station to the southern suburbs, a first section of the second line followed only four years later.

A third line, the so-called Pearl Line, has been developed out of a former ring railway, mainly elevated, to run from Baoshan Steel Complex in the north via Shanghai Railway Station to Caoxi Rd. in the south. Construction of the first 25 km section with 19 stations (3 at grade) between Caoxi Rd and Jiang Wan Zhen was completed in May 2000 and opened 26 Dec 2000 for trial operation.

The elevated 17.2 km southern extension of Line 1 (Xinmin Line) to Minhang (11 stations) opened as Line 5 in November 2003. For this line Siemens TS supplied the VICOS operation control system, the SICAS electronic interlocking and the ZUB 200 intermittent automatic train control (ATC) system. Trains were built by Alstom (Metropolis).

North extension (Gonghexin Rd Line) of Line 1 to Taihe Road Outer Ring Rd station together with the Gonghexin Road Viaduct project (12.4 km, 4.2 km underground - 3 stations, 8.2 km elevated - 6 stations, completed Oct. 2004).

The second phase of the Pearl Line (Line 4) runs through Pudong along Oriental Road. This line will form a circle with the existing Pearl Line, linking Baoshan station and Yi Shan Road station via Pudong on the east bank of the Huangpu River. The 22.3km mainly underground line (1.25 km elevated) was scheduled for completion by the end of 2004 (17 stations), but was delayed due to the collapse of a building suffered on the eastern cross-river section. The first stretches opened in Dec. 2005. One year later Line 3 was substantially extended towards the north to relieve the overcrowded Line 1.

Total length of the system in May 2007: 145 km

Shanghai metro line to link up airports
By Cao Li
Updated: 2007-07-26 07:05


SHANGHAI: Work started yesterday on the project to extend metro line 2, which is to serve as a link between Shanghai's two airports.

The metro project overlaps with the city's maglev train line.



Work on the project to extend Shanghai's metro line 2 gets underway yesterday. The extension will serve as a link between the city's two airports and is scheduled for completion before the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. Gao Erqiang


The extended metro line, between Longyang Road and Pudong International Airport, will stretch to 30.8 km from its current 24 km. The train will stop at 10 stations before reaching its terminal, which it will share with the maglev train.

"Most of the extended line will be built underground to save energy and to minimize the impact on the facilities and buildings along the route," said Qiu Zhaoming, an official with Shanghai Metro Operation Co Ltd.

"The line will be very close to the maglev rail as it approaches the terminal. We are still studying how to reduce the amount of interference between the two."

Construction work is to be completed before the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, when many people from home and abroad are expected to visit the city.

Metro line 2 is to be extended westwards to Hongqiao Airport, which handles domestic flights.

Upon completion, the line will enable passengers to travel from one airport to the other in 80 minutes. It is also expected to make accessing the airports from downtown easier, as well as develop rural areas along the line, said Qiu.
