They've sorted the software problems at Hongqiao Terminal 2 Station. Now they've got to sort out the middle platform to serving trains for both lines going into town.

Airport shuttle bus loses out to extended Metro
Created: 2010-12-18 1:39:53
Author:Zha Minjie

WITH an improved Metro service to Hongqiao International Airport now in operation, the future of a shuttle bus service there from downtown hangs in the balance.

The bus route, from Jing'an Temple to Terminal 1 has seen passenger numbers drop since the Metro Line 10 extended to the airport in late November.

"Many times I am the only person on the bus," said a shuttle bus driver on the Bashi Buses service, who asked not to be named.

On a recent visit to the bus stop at the Jing'an Temple hub, Shanghai Daily found only one passenger onboard the bus at about 11am.

The service, which takes about 45 minutes, usually runs from 6am until 8pm. However, it also takes some late-night air travelers back to downtown.

The shuttle driver said before the Metro squeezed business, the route could secure 10,000 yuan (US$1,500) of ticket sales a day. "Now we're lucky to collect 500 yuan." The ticket is priced at 4 yuan, about the same as the Metro, which is faster.

However, the Bashi Buses insists there is still demand for the service. Airport or airline staff take the bus to T1 during peak hours, it said.

Lu Gaosheng, an official with the city transport management administration, said: "The buses are mainly for public services, but they are also operated by market standards."

No company is able to survive with a long-term deficit, Lu said.

Suzhou Creek to have ferries within 5 years
Created: 2010-12-16 2:02:36

FERRIES will sail on Suzhou Creek within five years, complementing the city's existing transport system, local authorities said yesterday.

Passenger boats, together with sightseeing cruises, are expected to travel along the waterway by 2015, when restoration projects will be complete, according to plans for the creek's further development.

Zhabei District government revealed yesterday that the creek waterfront will become an eco-friendly corridor for sightseeing and relaxation, with several parks and a yachting marina planned.

In parallel to the creek's riverside, Qufu Road will become a green boulevard for buses and pedestrians. Areas of greenery, such as parks and squares, will be connected by the road. These include the Zhebei Greenland, Yue Plaza, and Jinyuan Business Park.

Since the area has buildings dating back to the 1920s - such as the Sihang Warehouse - new structures are required to have designs in keeping with the old architecture.

Old buildings, once renovated, will mainly be used as arts and cultural centers, according to RTKL International, the US company responsible for the design.

The development project covers 3.19 square kilometers along Suzhou Creek, from Jiaotong Road in the north to Luofu Road in the east.

Zhang Xiping, spokesman for Zhabei District government, said the project will change the area as a whole into a business district for Shanghai's financial sector and international companies. A state-level human resources industrial park has already been set up there.

More high-end buildings will be constructed and three bridges repaired to improve transport facilities.

When the construction of subway started, were the previous tram tracks (closed in sixties) discovered under the road surface in the time of digging?

3 new stations to open up on Metro Line 7

An extension of Metro Line 7 will begin service on December 28, local Metro authorities said yesterday.

The stretch of line in the city's northern Baoshan District will add three more stations to services, with another three still to come, Metro officials said.

Line 7 currently has its northern terminal at Shanghai University Station. The extended line, about 10 kilometers long, goes further north and ends at Meilan Lake Station.

People living in the far north of the city will thus have a faster means of going downtown. It will take about 45 minutes from Meilan Lake to downtown Jing'an Temple Station where passengers can change to Metro Line 2.

The interval time between trains along the extension will be set at 15 minutes. That time is currently about five minutes on Line 7.

Three stops, Panguang Road, Liuhang and Qihua Road stations, will remain closed due to nearby construction projects, including residential complexes and roads, which have not yet been finished.

The extension marks the end of five years of large-scale subway construction projects and operational improvements.

Shao Weizhong, deputy director of Shanghai Shentong Metro Group, the city's subway operator, said yesterday that there will be no new subways built within the next two years.

No. You are asking the same question over and over again in both the Shanghai Metro thread and Beijing Metro thread. Steel is a precious commodity in China back in the 1960s, so as soon as tracks were dug up from streets, they were sent for smeltering right way.

苏河湾简介
  国际上的著名城市往往都有一两条著名的河流贯穿。巴黎有塞纳河,伦敦有泰晤士河,蒙特利尔有圣劳伦斯河,纽约有哈德逊河……这些静静流淌的河流在养育了一座城市的同时,也为城市增添了无限风光。   上海,也有这样一条属于自己的母亲河——“苏州河”。一路的蜿蜒奔流,孕育了上海早期的繁荣,也见证着上海的历史变迁。在流经闸北的乌镇路至浙江北路时,苏州河优雅地划出了一道长达千米的亮丽孤线。

苏河湾对上海的影响
  “苏河湾”上海民族工商业发展的脉络,在上世纪初,这里成为上海民族资本集聚地和重要物资集散中心。这里有金城、中南、盐业、大陆、中国实业、浙江兴业等17幢银行和仓库,素有“黄金走廊”之称。还有上海第一家华商丝厂和民族工业先驱荣氏家族的第一座工厂——福新面粉厂,以及著名的“天后宫”等。上世纪二三十年代的“苏河湾”,曾被誉为当时沪上的“清明上河图”。

Shanghai will get a Disney metro line!

Quote:
Disneyland to get its own Metro station
2011-01-19 08:20

IT'S all aboard the Disneyland express, after the city announced that a special Metro line will take visitors to the theme park when it opens in 2015.

The route of the 9.2-kilometer line was published online by Shanghai's environmental authorities yesterday to solicit public opinion on environment issues.

Work on the dedicated Metro line, which is expected to cost 3.992 billion yuan (US$606.3 million), is set to begin in September. Trains will start running in July 2015.

The line will connect to Metro Line 11 at Luoshan Road Station, providing passengers from downtown Xujiahui area and suburban Jiading District with subway access to the much-anticipated park in Pudong.

Its final stop - Disneyland station itself - will connect with the Metro Line 2 via shuttle bus lines.

The Disneyland metro line has three new stations: the elevated Kangqiao Road E. station, Hengxin Road station, and Disneyland station, which will be underground.

The route will pass Zhoukang area before reaching Chuansha town.

Meanwhile, city officials disclosed that Shanghai Disneyland, the first Disneyland on China's mainland, will include three theme parks.

Details had been made public of one of the parks, "Magic Kingdom." The possible choices for the other two theme parks are "Epcot" and "Animal Kingdom," delegates at Shanghai People's Congress were told yesterday.

Dai Haibo, deputy director of Pudong New Area government and a congress deputy, said he was deeply impressed by the Orlando Disneyland which includes four theme parks, including Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios. He promised that Shanghai Disneyland will provide entertainment for both adults and children.

Large-scale construction on phase 1 of the project is expected to get under way in May. There is no start date for the other parts.

Shanghai Disneyland will be included in the 20-square-kilometer Shanghai International Tourist Resort. In total, it is expected to take up about one-third of the area. The phase 1 Disneyland is expected to attract 7.3 million visitors a year.

More than 2,000 households and 297 enterprises at the site of phase 1 theme park have been relocated.

I believe the Disneyland metro line is (or was) the 3rd and last part of line 11. The southern extension of line 11 has become line 21 AFAIK...
