Why? Shanghai's metro system works fine as is.

Construction was not well done, either sloppy work caused spillage before sealant was applied, or no sealant applied at all. This very common in metro stations in China.

Weather is humid there; you might as well assume it's permanent.

Shanghai is rich in groundwater. You don't have to dig deeper than one meter to see water bubbling out. The most buildings in Shanghai have no basement. If they do, such problems are inevitable.

I never knew Shanghai had such an extensive, ever-expanding and well maintained metro system. Kudos to the government. Are there any sort of statistics that indicate what percentage of the population uses the metro as opposed to cars?

Does this apply to new stations as well, or has China learned their lesson?

It depends, some stations are built well, while others have a lower standard. However, it is not a major problem, even the poorly installed marble looks better than old stations, and this is happening less and less.

I photographed this map a couple of days ago. I'm not sure how relevant it is;

What does the 长城大厦 have to do with the subway map? Sorry, I'm not an expert on Shanghai, never been there, seems like an amazing city!

At the Chang Cheng Building's site.

I guess it is merely illustrating where the Chang Cheng Building will be located in the future metro map of Shanghai. Although, I'm not sure how relevant the map is itself.

so many lines, but to be honest, line 1, line 2, line 3 and line 4 are the only lines i have ever taken.

i live in pudong, so i take line 2 the most to get across to puxi, i try to aviod line 4 because i find it very confusing of which way to take since it goes in a circle.

It's clearly marked with "inner circle" and "outer circle" on the platforms, plus the the next two stations in each direction are indicated as well. Can't go wrong, really.

Actually, it's all the same. Both ways you'll get to Puxi side. Sooner or later. Or depends which part of Puxi you want to reach.

Well, if you're at Caoyang Lu and want to go to Zhongshan Gongyuan I wouldn't recommend taking the inner ring.

Plus the PA announcement tells you the major stations in the direction of incoming trains. The first time you ride line 4 you need to pay attention to the map to make sure you take the right train, but after that it's a piece of cake. I know - it's my usual daily commute line.

Just something I noticed

I've been trying to figure out what was missing from all those stations and it finally occurred to me:

There are almost no ads anywhere (except a few on the trains themselves). Is this the norm in China? Here in Vancouver they place ads everywhere they can (not that I mind).

There are a lot of ads in the Shanghai Metro--both in stations and trains, most of it are on flat-screens though.
