Is the Guangzhou Metro made by the same people who made the HK MTR? It looks basically identical...

ABSOULTLY NOT!!!!!! The GZ Metro Corporation designed their own, but it was surely a copycat from HK's MTR.

1. Guangzhou metro has safe doors which prevent people from falling into the rail and save much air condictioning

2. Guangzhou line3/4 can run at 135KM/h, so far should be the fastest one in the world

HK has had screen doors on new lines since 1998.

All older underground stations had them installed from 2001-2005.

MTR Tung Chung Line (opened in 1998) has maximum speed 135 km/h, maximum service speed 130 km/h

So, are you and google_abcd the same person?? =)

I have been to Hongkong many times during the last few years, many stations don't have screen doors.

The KCR line does not have screen doors on its East Rail line (opened 1910). That whole line is very old and I would like some improvements too. Also, its new Ma On Shan extension does not have them.

KCR's other major line (West Rail) has them.

The MTR network is much larger and more underground sections than KCR, but it does not serve the border. Starting 1998 all new lines have screen doors. Starting 2001, HK was the first city in the world to start installing doors in older stations. As of 2005, every single old underground station has them.

Guangzhou, Shanghai and Seoul are now installing screens in their older stations. Paris is trying gates like those on MTR Disneyland Resort Line.

I will visit Guangzhou in December. I have not been there since 2002, and I want to try the new metro lines.
