The first-stage project of Foshan metro line 2 will begin at the end of this year.Yesterday,from Foshan public resources network, the reporter learned that the invitation to the BOT concession project tender for the first-stage project of metro line 2 has given. The main work will start next year in succession and it is expected to open in 2018.

The first-stage project of Foshan metro line 2 approved by the city government will be constructed in the way of BOT concession project investment. The concession period is 30 years (including 5-year construction period).In addition to the construction of rail transit project, the investors can also introduce TOD (Transit Oriented Development)mode,that is, they should finish TOD comprehensive land development in the mode of public transit oriented development.

According to the latest line trend, it shows that the first-stage project of Foshan metro line 2 will start from Nanzhuang in the west, along Zhidong Road ----Jihua Road 1--- ( through under )Dongping watercourse ---- Jihua Road 2 ----Jihau Road 3 --- ( pass through ) Shiwuan Park ---- Zhenzhong Road ----Kuiqi Road ---- ( through under )Dongping watercourse ---- Fochen Highway ---- ( from Foshan First Ring Express ) Wendeng Road ---- Linyue Avenue (go under before Chencun watercourse)---- ( go under ) Chencun watercourse, and the terminal station in south is Guangzhou South Station. There are 17 stations in the 32.3 km long metro. They are Nanzhuang Station, Huyong Station, Titian Station , Liantang Station, Haikou Station, Shiwan Station, Pancun Station, Kuiqi Road Sation. Shiliang Station, Wanhua Station, Dengzhou Station, Flower World Station, Xianyong Station, Shizhou Station, Linyue West Station, Linyue East Station and Guangzhou South Railway Station, including 7 transfer stations.

The average distance between stations of the first-stage project is 1.99 km, among which the largest space is 3.85km (from Flower World Station to Xianyong Station), and the shortest distance is 0.97km (from Shiliang Station to Wanhua Station). Four nearest stations to Guangzhou South Railway Station and Nanzhuang Station are elevated stations. Among 17 stations, there are 7 transfer stations, such as Haikou Station, Shiwan Station, Kuiqi Road Staion, Wanhua Station, Flower World Station, Linyue West Station and Guangzhou South Railway Station, by which link to Guangfo Ring Express ,Foshan metro line 1,line 3,line 5,and line 6 , Nanhai New Traffic,and Guangzhou metro. A comprehensive repair base in Linyue and a parking lot in Huyong will be built.
According to the bidding scheme, it is estimated that the total investment of the first-stage project of line2 is 18.935 billion, and other synchronous implementing project is about 900 million, so it amounts to 19.835 billion. The project will begin at the end of 2013, and will have been completed by the end of 2018.
After the completion of the project, the operation time of trains is from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day, which means 18 hours a day. B type trains with the highest speed of 100 km per hour will be used in line 2 , and 6 of them are marshalled into a group. The traffic volume will be greatly increased than that of Guangfo Metro Line 1 now.

Great, finally a thread of the last Chinese city with a metro that didn't had one (Mainly because of nearby Guangzhou). Now a question arises: When the Guangfo line a.k.a. Foshan metro line 1 extension opens, will be posted here because it belongs to Foshan metro or will be posted in the Guangzhou thread due to the extension being located entirely there?

Anyway, these are the current long term plans (caution: big image, but it was needed so that the station names are legible):

Good question re the extension of GF line.

I assume it will only be posted on this thread if we decide to do it ourselves.

That is one impressive plan you posted up it gives you the some idea that Foshan metro will be impressive in its own right once completed.

No news on Line 3?

Are these 905 km pure metro lines or, like with Shenzhen, they include other types or rail transport?

The quality of that pic is not good enough to read everything, but I believe 21 lines of 905km are only subway lines. Those dotted lines are intercity lines, and there will be 10 such lines. The grand total of all rail transport network within the Guangzhou vicinity is 1221km, as stated on the picture.

I remember a photo of that same map, with another focusing in the table of lenghts. 905 km is indeed the total lenght of all planned metro lines (Line 14 has a planned lenght of 92.8 km!!!), third only to Beijing and Shanghai. And this without counting Foshan, which should add another 250 km to the figure.

What about Wuhan? Its master plan is to build 27 lines of metro or so. Will its system be smaller than that of Guangzhou?

I assume the dotted line that extends right around the perimeter of the Guangzhou in the proposed line that will connect all the regional airports?

Standing room only: Guangzhou train carriages stripped of seats, racks to fit in more rush-hour commuters

...changes have been made to 29 trains running between 15 different stations on Guangzhou Metro Corp’s Line 3, in Guangdong province, which carried 1.62 million every day last month, the Guangzhou Daily reported.

The removal of a small area of seating and passenger racks at the ends of some carriages means each train can now comfortably hold an extra 46 passengers, while during the rush-hour periods – when passengers are tightly packed together – a total of 78 extra passengers can be accommodated, the newspaper said.

The Line 3 trains carried 24 per cent of all the passengers using the Guangzhou metro and were always overloaded during peak hours, the newspaper reported...

Beside the great metro system, and probably the first interurban metro line of China, Guangzhou recently opened a tram system also. But there is no overhead wire. Is this a diesel or battery tram? Or it uses APS technology for current collection? Please confirm.
