Nanjing has always used it because it's produced locally.

I see. But Hangzhou is going to use them, too. As I know, Bombardier Movia trains are also made in China, so, to me as a passenger, they are much better.

Maybe when Changchun Metro is completed they will use the locally produced Bombardier.

Tianjin (at lest on Line 1) uses those (by CNR) and yes they are smoother and quieter... but the passages between cars are noticeably narrower. I'd say too narrow.

Are you talking about Alstoms cars or Bombardier?

Line 3 trains look wider than standard Chinese cars, are they by any chance 3.2m wide?

you are absolutely correct, the Line 3 A cars are 10cm wider than the regular one to allow more room inside, it's optimized for standing passengers too, with reduced seating.

Going underground! Bus rescued by crane after being engulfed by huge crack in the road

The bus sunk into a gaping pothole in Nanjing, China today
All 31 passengers on board were evacuated and no one was injured
By ALEX WARD

PUBLISHED: 14:31 EST, 29 November 2012 | UPDATED: 15:14 EST, 29 November 2012


A bus carrying passengers has been rescued by a crane after it was engulfed by a huge crack which appeared suddenly in the road. The bus sunk into the gaping pothole with 31 passengers on board near a construction site in Nanjing, in China's Jiangsu province today. The passengers were evacuated and no one was injured in the sinkhole incident near the construction site for the city’s subway, it was reported.

The Nanjing Metro Authority said initial investigations indicated that the movement of 'quicksand' underground could have caused the collapse. As an emergency strategy, sand was poured into the hole to secure the underground structure, the authority said. Nearby streets were closed as people gathered to witness the unusual scene but the subway remained in service. Due to the size of the vehicle, it only partly sunk unlike a minibus in the city of Guilin, in south China which was completely engulfed without warning in a 16ft-deep pit in June as it was driven along the Fuxing Road in the city’s Qixing district. According to reports the pit, which was about 13ft long and 8ft wide, came after heavy rains weakened the eroded the road's asphalt surface.

Haha, no wonder China is adding so many subway kilometers: buses are spontaneously turning into subways!



But seriously, I'm pretty sure the subway construction right next to the hole has something to do with it.

Of course it's related, the excavation of the Line 3 Daxinggong station removed a lot of sand and unknowingly created air pockets under the pavement, recent rains have caused quicksand to shift and finally the bus cracked it open. Fortunately it's not very deep and is unlikely to affect the subway station construction, authorities will have to fill it with more sand to create a stable foundation of the new asphalt. The traffic will probably be crappy for a while though, it's a super busy intersection.

I hope that doesn't prevent L3 from opening in time for YOG, which is NJ's raison d'etre these days.

Luckily no one was hurt this time so my guess is that the affects will be minimum. We'll have to wait and see.
