i love those schematic type of information about lines... they didn't leave anything to fail... every entrance, exit, stairs, and then a 3D model of stop... i'm amazed... this is how every serious metro information should look like...

Extra subway trains to serve Olympics

By Yang Lifei and Dong Zhen | 2008-7-28

TO improve transport capacity during the Olympic soccer matches next month, Shanghai metro operators plan to put four additional trains into use.

One train will serve Metro Line 8 starting on Thursday and the other three will serve Metro Line 2 next month before the soccer events are held.

The city's subway network handled about 2.9 million passengers per day on average, a 40 percent increase from May. However, the number has reached 2.95 million this month and is expected to reach 3.6 million during the Olympics.

In addition to upgrading capacity, metro operators will extend the hours of some metro lines for Olympic soccer games.

A detailed schedule was not yet available, but lines 1 and 4 will operate past the usual closing time of 11pm on August 16, the date of an Olympic quarterfinal soccer match at Shanghai Stadium.

Every metro station in the city will be provided with an Olympic Conductor.

Meanwhile, public toilets have been opened free of charge at all metro lines expect Line 4, whose toilet construction is still ongoing.

Residents over 70 can take the metro train free of charge from August 1 by using a special gate.

How has the public transit budget anything to do with privately financed skyscraper projects?

Why are so many Chinese marble floors like this:





I see it in malls, airports, train stations is it the way they cut it or something it always look wet on the edges.

I'm thinking the floor wasn't properly sealed with a sealant. When it rains or floods, the water seeps into the stone and stains it. Not sure if it is permanent though.

Line 9 to link transfers

2008-8-4

SIX of the 10 stops on the extension of Shanghai's Metro Line 9 will function as transfer hubs linking with other Metro Lines.

The second phase construction of Metro Line 9 will be completed next year to serve the city before World Expo.

Passengers will be able to take Metro Lines 2, 4 and 6 at Century Avenue Station and transfer to Metro Line 8 at Lujiabang Road Station.

Madang Road Station will be a hub for both Metro Lines 9 and 13, while Jiashan Road has been designed to connect to Metro Line 12.

Zhaojiabang Road Station is available for Metro Line 7 and Xujiahui Station will also have Metro Line 1 and 11 connections.

Construction of Yishan Road Station, which began under the first phase, will be completed this year to realize the transfer between Metro Lines 9 and 3.

Metro Line 9 is to be extended north to Songjiang Railway Station, connecting with another railway line to neighboring Zhejiang Province. Line 9 will connect to the Hu-Hang-Yong line that links Shanghai to the cities of Hangzhou and Ningbo.

The line's first phase, a 31.12-kilometer section, has 13 stations, connecting Songjiang and Xuhui districts.

liwentao_tom,

Do you have a schedule of when all the lines u/c (and the planned ones too) will open?

All I know is that lines 7, 8 (extension) and 9 (extension) will open next year, and that 11 and 12 will open in 2012.
