You must be right about the city. However, there appears to be no interchange between Lines 2 and 6. It must've been filmed on (also heavy rail) Line 1, coz the automatic on-board PA system seems to announce their approaching Jiaochangkou interchange station with (quote) "Line 2". Although few photos or videos exist of Chongqing's trains and stations, the poor view of a pink-railed, on-board bench siding I happened to notice in a picture of Chongqing heavy stock seems to match the ones filmed in the video.

(Now I now can't find the Guangzhou metro map I found yesterday wherein there was a station on some line there preceding its interchange with Line 2 that was named something like Jo Jo Hotel )

I never watched the video I just guessed based on the preview but if the PA system says so then it is.

Guangzhou plans to open 12 more sections of subway by 2016:

Sections/Lines include:

Line 6 Phase 1

Line 6 Phase 2

Line 7 Phase 1

Line 8 northern cross river extension

Line 8 final northern extension to Baiyun lake

Line 9 whole line

Guangfo Line Phase 2

Line 13 Phase 1

Line 14 Phase 1

Line 21 Phase 1

Line 4 Southern extension

Knowledge City Line

Source

Hopefully they can fulfill this deadline as some projects on this list haven't even started construction or just barely started with little progress.

Dongguan and Guangzhou Metro intends to achieve connecting Metro Lines



Dongguan metro Line R1 to connect with Line 5 Guangzhou Metro. It's a shame that R2 is not built with LIM tech to allow for through operations. Same can be said with the other end where Shenzhen uses A size trains while Dongguan uses B size trains.

These cultural walls are pretty much the only thing to be excited about with Line 6. I like the Dongshankou one a lot, but what this photo doesn't show is how butt ugly the rest of the new station hall looks.

Do they need a mural dedicated to the founding of the Communist Party Youth Movement? This isn't North Korea.

More communist than the USA as well. Idealism is for academics the rest of us who have to earn a living have to be pragmatic.

Line 6, China's biggest screw up, will use 4L cars which are only 68.8 m long and 2.8 meters wide, mind as well use LRT cars. It will be overcrowded from day one. Which even Guangzhou Metro officials even admit it. Their response? passenger limiting starting day one, remove seats and mustering every train they have into service. Throwing every train they have ATM into service generates a headway of 3 min and 45 seconds or 16 trains per hour. The demolished seats will allow each 4 car train to carry ideally 1280 people. Giving a garbage ideal capacity 20,480 ppl/hr/direction. To put things into perspective Line 3 runs ~23 trains per hour using 6 car B sets. it clocks 31,050 ppl/hr/direction and its still offically over 100% capacity. My solution? L series is kawasaki tech, just like the Tokyo Metro Oedo Line. So extend all the platforms to accommodate 8L cars, just like Tokyo Metro Oedo Line. ASAP!

Are there plans to do as you suggested? What they are doing are merely stop gap measures at best.

Chinese metro planners are always doing the same. While they could have adopted the way Hongkong metro is built in terms of rolling stock. Large, only large A-size trains up to 12 cars per train. That is a solution. Instead, they are building lines that are far from even satisfying current needs, not least to provide an extra capacity for the future.
