Some days ago I read about a bigger rail transit plan for Nanjing. They're now aiming for 22 lines totalling 775 km. From those, 14 lines, totalling 480 km, will be metro proper.

This was reported back in December, I don't think anything major has changed, probably just minor route adjustments.

8 lines have been approved and financed and construction have either already started or will start in 2013 and are scheduled to be finished by 2015-16. 4 lines will be completed prior to the Youth Olympic in 2014. The remaining lines are pending approval and construction won't start until after the 13th five year plan (2015).

The schedules of Nanjing-Hangzhou high speed railway report a "Jiangning" station 12 km from Nanjing South station.

Is it also served by Nanjing metro?

Not directly. There's 700m distance between Jiangning HSR Station and Line 1 CPU station.

700m can be easily walked in under 10 minutes, but would it be fair to assume that suburban Nanjing is a pedestrian-hostile environment?

I would say yes, in this case Jiangning is comprised mostly of residential complexes and university campuses, from Metro Line 1 CPU station to the HSR Jiangning station you'll have to either navigate through a university campus or go around which is much much longer than 700m.

Are there any prospects for extending Line 1 to a new terminus at Jiangning HSR?

I don't think that's possible, Line 1 at CPU is almost parallel with Nanjing-Hangzhou HSR so the metro line will have to do a U turn after CPU to be connected with HSR Jiangning station.

Yesterday I was in Nanjing for the third time and I should say out of all cities of china visited, Nanjing metro can boast best order. People stand in lines waiting for a train, they always let people get off and then get on themselves. In Shanghai, Beijing or Hangzhou it is not the case.

As far as I experienced it; Beijing was much worse in that matter than Shanghai. Maybe the further north the more rude the ppl are

Totally agree about Beijing.

Another fact from my experience: Shenzhen is better than Shanghai on metro manners.

I think it can differ from city to city, but in general, I think the migrant population and/or the poor generally seem to be ignorant of subway etiquette. I'd agree about Beijing, but I get the feeling that Beijingers are generally frustrated by their city being overrun by domestic tourists and migrant workers that they become reserved(?) and defensive(?). But I wouldn't describe it as rude - I find China's subways are as "rude" as cities like Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore and Paris.

I can't say anything about those other cities, but Hong Kong's subway is a haven of order compared to Chinese subways. People almost always queue up in the proper manner. The general exception to this are the mainlanders on the East Rail Line.

They tend to cause a ruckus on most lines. Last time I got off to go to Lane Crawford, several of them forced their way into the train while I was trying to get out, they were very noisy too, arguing about something or another.
