That means Shanghai metro overtook London Underground today to become the longest metro in the world.

Beijing, Wuhan, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Tianjin, Chongqing and Shenzhen have plans to build metros longer than 400 kilometres. I don't know if there are more cities, maybe Shenyang?

I think many of them will take a long time to reach 400 km mark.

Only Beijing and perhaps Guangzhou and maybe Shenzhen will approach 400km.

So Shanghai is officially the longest metro system? Great news and a milestone.
What are next opening lines/extensions in 2010?

The Line 13 expo line section, the northern extension of line 7, and the Hongqiao airport branch of Line 10 are still not yet open.

I don't think some of these cities will need such large metros so quickly. They may keep on getting new metro lines with time depending on need.

Thanks, that clears things a bit.

I have checked the numbers shown in Wikipedia, however it's a little confusing because it's not clear which infois up to date and what is what in general. So how long are all the sections to be completed in 2010 and what will be the total system length by the end of 2010?

Currently the figure given is 424,7km which is definitely up to date (although not sure if it is precise because there is no any source given, just added up all the lines).

Hmm, if I add up all the lenghts shown in that table I get 447,9km, not 424,7... is it my calculator or what?

I guess it's worth waiting for some official data.

They aren't including the Maglev. But I'm too lazy to check if it's right anyways. Shanghai is truly amazing, doesn't matter how long it is.
