That's good news. Any idea when the branch to Hongqiao will be open?

That sort of system could become rather messy when there's an incident causing major delays across the network.

Passenger Caught in Shanghai Metro Doors Dies

very disturbing news from Line 2. Shanghai metro company should seriously improve the safety measures to avoid such tragedies from happening again. a public transit system should not rely on people only, instead it should be prepared for passengers not obeying the rules.

Quote:
At 18:16 on July 5th, a train on Shanghai’s Metro Line 2 was leaving the Zhongshan Park station and in the process of closing its doors, when a middle-aged female passenger tried boarding the train at the last minute. The woman’s arm was caught in between the doors. When the train had started to move she was slammed against the guard rails and fell to her death.

Officials with the metro company confirmed the accident and indicated that investigations were underway. Metro officials again warned passengers to take caution when riding the subway, and to refrain from forcefully trying to board trains while the doors are being closed.

Stuff like that happen in every metro. Lots of people die just like that in Oslo Metro (Norway) as well. That is, getting slammed into the wall, falls off the platform or are hit by the trains. The last one only last year. It's tragic, but usually it's bound to happen when you combine powerful machinery, moving parts, lots of people and a hectic environment. That being said, the Oslo Metro trains cannot move until all the doors are properly closed. And if anything blocks the door (like a human arm), the door opens immediately automatically.

When will the line 2 extension to Pudong airport increase its operating hours from the trial hours? (I think it's currently 10:00 to 16:00)

I spent about four days in Shanghai on my last trip to China in May. Here’s my transit pics.

Part 1

Arrival at Hongqiao Airport after leaving Guangzhou. I am bound for the recently-opened Hongqiao Airport Terminal 2 Station on Line 2 of the Shanghai Metro.

Inside a Line 2 train, bound for my hotel in Pudong.

Exit 1 of Lujiazui Station, my home base for part of the trip.

Hanzhong Road Station on Line 1 was my other home base.

People’s Square Station, the interchange station for Line 1, Line 2, and Line 8. I came here to see the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center.

Buses stuck in traffic along Middle Tibet Road, the eastern boundary of the square.

More roadway congestion. At the corner of the intersection is Exit 1 of People’s Square Station, which occupies the space beneath the square.

East Nanjing Road Station on Line 2. This is the closest station to The Bund and is located at the eastern end of Nanjing Road, Shanghai’s premier shopping street.

Back in Lujiazui since I wanted to go up to the SWFC observatory. A westbound Line 2 train bound for East Xujing Station arrives at the station.

The project extending Line 11 to Huaqiao, Kunshan, Jiangsu Province has passed the environmental evaluation:

I hope it will get approved soon. Here is the route:

BTW, SH metro set a new record of daily ridership at 6.724 million on July 23rd. Wonder if it will reach the 7 million milestone before the National Day.

It probably has to do with the expo.

You are right. The record was set on July 9th, and the link provided by P05 confirmed it. It might be confusing because the news was reported on July 10th.

There are many factors contributing to the recent ridership boom.

The most important factor is of course, as gincan mentioned, the EXPO that attracts lots of tourists. There are 300,000 to half a million tourists visiting the park everyday, and many of them choose to take the metro.

Moreover, Line 10 and Line 2 (from PVG to Longyang Rd) extended their operation schedules. The opening of Hongqiao Railway Station on July 1st also boosts the ridership, as more people started taking metro line 2 which is currently the most popular way to commute between the station and downtown area. Actually line 2 has overtaken Line 1 to become the busiest metro route in Shanghai, and ridership is being controlled on Line 2 since the current system has been pushed to its limit.

Given that Line 2 is now the busiest on the network, I wonder if and when they'll get around to putting platform screen doors on all the remaining underground Line 2 stations. AFAIK, Line 2's older underground stations are the only remaining underground stations on the system that don't have PSDs.

I don't think they can install PSDs along the old Line 2 due to its 'open-loop' ventilation system. Platform edge doors are more appropriate for these stations.
