The third line that opened today is line 2 of nearby Hefei.

Nanjing opens suburban metro Line S3

Source: IRJ | December 06, 2017

Nanjing added a third suburban line to its metro network on December 6 with the start of trial passenger operation on the 37.5km Line S3, which serves the southwest of the city.

The 19-station line starts at Nanjing South Railway Station and runs underground for 14.2km before crossing the Yangtze River on the 1.6km Dashengguan Bridge, one of the world’s largest arch bridges, which it shares with the Beijing - Shanghai high-speed line. The line then continues along the west bank of the river to reach the terminus at Gaojiachong.

The line is equipped with 1.5kV dc overhead electrification and services are operated by a fleet of 24 six-car Type B trains supplied by CRRC Nanjing Puzhen.

S9

The S9 will open in a few months. This one will connect to the S1 at its penultimate station, Xiangyulunan. A cross-platform transfer will be provided at Xiangyulunan for passengers continuing on to Nanjing South. Airport-bound S9 passengers will need to change platforms at Xiangyulunan.

The alignment is elevated, though one of the stations is partially underground. Some of the stations are in sparsely populated rural districts. Gaochun station is on the north end of the densely populated Gaochun district and will probably see sizable ridership. The yard is just north of the Gaochun station.

Some photos:

This is an interesting seating arrangements; I don't believe any of the other Nanjing suburban lines use this, as I think they all have seating along the sides of the trains as is typical in subways.

The most dramatic feature is where the train will cross the middle of Shiju Lake in the median of a highway bridge:

After S9 opens, Nanjing will have 5 urban subway lines, 4 suburban metro lines and 2 trams.

And then S7 will open, which will also involve S1 being extended one station past the airport (the new station will likely be called something along the lines of "Airport East"). S7 is currently under construction.

According to local media, both S3 and S9 are now in test operation.

I really like those white panels with those stylized tree designs and Chinese signs.

Continuing with the year end round of openings, this time I decided to do today's tour now (early in the morning in China). We'll have yet another day of this...

Nanjing is putting into operation line S9, the second phase of the Nanjing-Gaochun line (and as such it was formerly considered part of line S1). The line runs from Xiangyu Lu Nan to Gaochun over 51.7 km with only 6 stations, meaning there is an average of 8.62 km between stations. The line cross right through the middle of Shijiu lake. Gaochun is 78.3 km away from Nanjing South station and 147.2 km away from Jinniuhu at the end of line S8, now that is something. I'm not sure if there are longer metro journeys anywhere in the world. I'm also not sure if there is through service from line S9 to line S1, but I wouldn't be surprised if they do so.

Nanjing metro is now 346.5 km long (counting both urban and suburban lines), thus becoming the 4th longest metro network in China and the 6th longest in the world, just ahead of Moscow (by less than a km!) and behind either New York City or Guangzhou (again thanks to that Guangzhou-Foshan line I count as Foshan but others count as Guangzhou).

Line S7 to Lishui will open on the first half of 2018.

Line S9 Opens!

Quote:
Nanjing Intercity Line S9 Starts Operation
And joins lines S3 and 4 as the new lines opened this year

Every year right at the end of December we see an explosion of new metro lines opening in China: 2017 is the first year for Nanjing to participate in such tradition.



The new line adds 52.32km and 5 more stations in the network, now stretching all the way to the Gaochun District.

Thanks to this opening, Nanjing can now claim to be the first city in Mainland China to have one metro line in every district.

The Intercity Line S1, which connects this new line to the rest of the network, will expand its operating timetable to 6:00 until 22:40.

Another Nanjing Intercity Line, S7, that will connect Line S1 to the southern part of the Lishui district, is expected to open in the first half of next year.

A new update will be soon available on both our Online Nanjing Metro Map and our Nanjing Metro App, on the App Store.

Stay tuned for more metro news on your favorite cities!

It doesn't seem interlining is contemplated, but there is a cross-platform transfer for passengers traveling in the same direction.

It makes more sense to provide through service between S7 and S1
