Maybe it is because I am used to it that I have no problems with it. The Nanjing example in this thread isn't the best way to do it imo (in fact, I don't like when it is downright difficult to distinguish ads from actual information like in this case-- especially for people who do not read the language), but the way it is done elsewhere-- ie. large 50 or so inch LCD-screens with half the screen devoted to train arrival times and the rest to commercials/operation info/tourist info etc. is fine by me.

It doesn't make sense to have exit signs or toilet signs shown with LCD technique in my opinion...


EDIT: Some examples;

Shanghai



LA



Seoul

The Nanjing Metro Thread is probably not the best place to deal with issues like this, since it has little to do with the Nanjing Metro, or with Melbourne (where I am coming from) either.

I accept what has been said here: I have never been to Nanjing, but was mildly surprised to see a TV channel transfixing the occupants of buses when I visited Singapore. Once again, whether the mode of display is LCD or plasma or whatwever else is somewhat immaterial: it is the content of the message that is significant, not the mode.

I accept that using LCD to indicate the way to the toilets or the the emergency exit would be foolish: since LCD or whatever else might potentially fail, whereas a simpler technology will not.

The simple point I was making ( I wasn't actually making a point, but asking a question!): was Jilanye Real Estate or whatever a location? Apparently not, it was just an advetisement thrown up on a destination indicator. And everyone in Nanjing knows that it is just an advertisement, so they can factor that into or out of their thinking, as they wish, perhaps?

Remember I asked two other questions: about the scissors crossings, and the clipped bushes in the median strip. I recieved no answer to either.

Regarding the advertising on the destination boards (and I emphasize, it's irrelevant whether they are LCD, plasma, or hand-written signs held up by an army of loyal metro workers!). The question is, when you look up there, will you get the info you really need, or something about real-estate?>

Well, as you say, it's no big deal to you, and that's probably true. It's just like your computer screen. In the fringe area I generally ignore it says "Find Construction Jobs". I don't want a construction job. But I ain't waiting for a train. Stick that stuff in when people are waiting & they'll get angry: fast.

Anyway, the Nanjing system looks beaut, except for the scissors crossing.

Sorry, I don't know about the scissor crossings-- I do know that we have them in the Copenhagen Metro (where M1 and M2 splits) too though.

Just days to go until line 2 opens (it will open on May 28th), and some info was published today about the expected opening times of the line, and the trains available. It looks like some people are worried about the increase of usage and the possibility of more crowds as line 2 opens.

More about line 2:

Initially there will be only 16 cars and trains will be passing every 8 minutes. Later in the year it will be reduced to four minutes and there will be 35 cars.

Yesterday Nanjing metro grew from 22 km to 87km thanks to the opening of line 2 and the south extension of line 1.

Nanjing metro network now looks like this:

Beautiful new extension! I expect a lot of these doubling and tripling in size unveilings in the next five years.

Why did the Nanjing Metro call the new addition part of Line 1? It looks like a different spoke entirely so really it should be Line 3.

Edit: Nevermind, I read on Wikipedia that this new extension will eventually be part of Line 10 but for one reason is named Line 1 until all of Line 10 opens.

funny how the 20-year plan does not involve linking the Nanjing metro to Nanjing North or Nanjing West railway stations. Or are these unimportant marginal stops?
