One thing I've observed is that with the distance-based fares some trips can actually become cheaper when a new line opens. This happened in Nanjing when line 4 opened, as explained over at Ditiezu up to 43 relations between stations on line 2 East of (and including) Jinma Lu and stations North of (and including) Gulou and Jimingsi (this includes the entire line S8 or Nanjing-Tianchang line) saw their fares lowered by one yuan.

A short explanation of how this works: Imagine a 3 km long line 1 running straight from A to B and a 4 km long line 2 running straight and at a right angle to line 1 from B to C. The fare is 2 yuan for trips up to 6 km and 3 yuan for longer trips. Thus, the trip from A to C, which is 7 km long, would cost 3 yuan. Then line 3 opens, running straight from A to C. The trip is now 5 km long and costs 2 yuan, cheaper than before. This applies to all metros all over China (and elsewhere with a distance-based faring), not just Nanjing.

Considering that line 8 is planned to run all the way to Tongjing (which is right by the Jiangsu-Anhui border), that would mean line S2 would be a short shuttle between the Nanjing and Ma'anshan metro systems, unless they replace part of line 8 with line S2 like they did with other suburban lines.

Also, Ma'anshan metro plans includes several additional lines in the long term, including line 4 to Mingjue on line S9 (the Gaochun line, formerly planned as part of line S1 which is now solely the airport line).

I mostly do metro openings and normally overlook tram lines, but that is not the case here. The Qilin tram line (UrbanRail has misspelled it, probably from Google translator, neither "ki" nor "rin" happens in pinyin) is expected to open sometime in August. It runs from Maqun station on line 2, at first East before turning Southwest, spanning 15 stops over 9.1 km. In the long term metro line 12 will also run through the area. A third tram line, running the length of Jiangxin island (in this case 洲 zhou means island, not continent), is scheduled to start construction soon for an opening in 2020. A fourth tram line, running along the old railway tracks between Nanjing and Nanjing West stations, is planned.

As for metro lines, only suburban ones are scheduled to open in the short term: Both the Gaochun (line S9, formerly part of line S1) and the He county (line S3, ending at Gaojiachong before crossing into Anhui for the time being) lines are expected by the end of this year, while the Lishui line (Line S7) is scheduled for the end of 2018. After that no new metro openings will take place until 2021.

Line S3 will open in mid-November.

http://news.nanjing.fang.com/open/26873464.html

Connections will be provided at Nanjing South Railway Station (lines 1/3/S1), Youfangqiao (line 2) and Pingliangdajie / Wuhoujie (Hexin tram).

The Qilin tram. It is the second tram line in Nanjing, after the Hexi line (And I first knew about the Qilin line when the Hexi one was about to open). It has 13 stops over 9 km. In the future metro line 12 will run beneath it, also ending at Maqun (but extending past Shiyang Lu to Cuipingshan on line S1).

A third tram line, running the length of Jiangxin island, is now on the preparation works stage. There is also a second Hexi line proposed.

It is rumored line S3, also known as Nanjing-He county intercity line, will open on November 18. Regardless if it's true or not, what it's sure is the line won't reach He county yet, ending at Gaojiachong just before the Anhui border.

The stations look just about ready; it will almost certainly open this month.

While we wait for the opening, I've updated my Nanjing Metro map with the new S3 Line (Chinese Version Here)

So the first phase of line S3, or Nanjing-He county line, is opening tomorrow Wednesday. So many railways are opening on December 6, I counted 3 metro lines and a high-speed one. One would expect a late month opening, but it seems they are moving away from them.

Automated Nanjing Metro Line 7 a first for Jiangsu Province

Source: The Nanjinger

On November 29, construction for Nanjing Metro Line 7 started. As the first fully automated unmanned metro line in Jiangsu province, Line 7 is expected to be completed and open for public use by the end of 2021.

Project Engineer for Nanjing Metro Line 7, Liu Jiangtao, explained to reporters that the entire line will utilize the "cut and cover" method of constructing tunnels, whereby a deep trench is dug into the ground, that is later covered up after the tunnel has been installed. This way of building metro lines is vastly cheaper than full-scale tunneling. The only exception shall be where the line is required to go through Qingliangshan, where the hilly terrain means that there is no other option than to tunnel through.

Running in a northeast-southwest direction, Line 7 will be approximately 35 kilometers long, with 27 stations, including interchanges with lines 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13 and S3. Of those presently in existence, Line 7 will link with Line 2 at Mochouhu, Line 3 at Wutangguangchang and Line 10 at Zhongsheng.

A New Intercity Line S3 Opens in Nanjing
…and joins the other two S1 and S8

Thanks to the brand new S3 Intercity line people living in the South-Western side of Nanjing’s Jiangnin District, and in Anuhi’s He County (a.k.a. Hexian, 和县) from today on will feel more connected than ever to Nanjing.



With this opening, the Nanjing South Railway Station is becoming more and more of a hub, to this date, it connects four lines: Line 1, 3, S1, and now S3.

Another Intercity Line, S9, is expected to open within just 2 months.

Is S3 opened?
Also, you said '3 metro lines' - I know for Nanjing and circle line in Chengdu! Which one is the third one?
