I find this map very pleasing to the eye without sharp edges and angles on some map, also I found this map of Guangzhou Metro which has basically all the lines that were planned, I don't know if it is accurate also I am not smart enough so I am going to ask a master if its accurate and some of the due date on these lines.

I feel like Guangzhou could use an "Airport Express" and "Guangzhou South Railway Station Express" line from Zhujiang New Town. Local lines(160km/h+) to get people from the far off airport and largest railway station to the center of town more quickly.

At least a direct link from Guangzhou South Railway Station to Zhujiang New Town would be good.

Which airport? Because the southern end of Guangzhou Line 4 is only about 15km away from Shenzhen Line 1 Airport East station (Bao'an) .

Guangzhou metro CBTC contract awarded
Wednesday, January 07, 2015



GUANGZHOU Metro Corporation has awarded Thales a contract through its Thales Saic Transportation local joint venture to supply communications-based train control (CBTC) for two new metro lines in the city

The 54.1km Line 14 will link Jiahewanggang in the northeastern district of Baiyun with Jiekou in the southwest of the city, with a 28.1km branch serving the Knowledge City development in Luogang.

The 61.5km 20-station Line 21 will be an express line running from an interchange with lines 5 and 11 at Yuancun in the northern district of Tianhe to Zhengcheng in the east.

Both lines are due to be commissioned by the end of 2017
