Some of these Changchun station designs are frankly quite tacky and gaudy. I wish Chinese metro designs would move away from the typical layout or style, its more or less the same.

Chinese metro designers should really look into those of Europe, these are all very elegant and tasteful in design. Simplicity is key, otherwise it looks like an amusement park ride.

Helsinki, Finland


Amsterdam, Netherlands


Leipzig, Germany

Changchun seems to have visually some of the worst station designs in China, which is saying a lot... They really need to find an alternative to the Shijiyuan for such important projects with such potential.

Station designers for China's silty and muddy plains don't have the liberties Finish designers have. Their stations are in hard shield bedrock. Look at the stations in Stockholm, they don't even need vaults.

That's no reason to cover every inch of space with gaudy decoration, its simply poor design probably as result of someone being responsible for this aspect of the project without having any merit. These are major pieces of public infrastructure, not street-side hair salons.

Even something purely functional, using higher quality materials and having attention to detail (as in much of Japan's transport related architecture) would be lightyears ahead of what they're doing in Changchun (along with many other places in China). Chongqing seems to be doing better in this regard, although I haven't been there personally so I can't say for sure.

Changchun adds light rail line
The third line of Changchun’s light rail network opened on October 30. Line 8 runs north from the northern terminus of metro Line 1 at North Ring Road to Guangtong Road.
Services on the elevated 13·3 km route with 12 stops run every 10 min from 06.00 to 21.00, offering an end-to-end journey time of 28 min.
CRRC Changchun supplied a fleet of six-section Type C light rail vehicles, which are stabled at a depot at Taiping depot near the northern end of the route. They have capacity for 622 passengers, including 124 on seats which are heated to provide greater comfort in the city’s cold winters. The LRVs draw power at 750 V DC and have a maximum operating speed of 70 km/h.
Construction started in April 2014 and was undertaken by China Railway Electrification Bureau.
The second phase would extend the route by 27·6 km from Guangtong Road to Mishazizhen, adding nine stops.

As always, when some long awaited opening takes place I miss out another, this time line 8 a.k.a. Beihu line earlier this week (Confirmed by Ditiezu posts and Baidu maps showing it). I see they have deleted one station from the original plan and renamed several others. In addition as it is fully grade separated it qualifies as a full, albeit light, metro line (It would be a light rail line if it had at-grade crossings). According to my data Changchun subway stands at 65.7 km (only counting full metro lines, i.e. those that are powers of 2), and at 96.8 km (if light rail line 3 is included), Wikipedia has it at 68.8 and 100.7 km respectively as like always I have something missing. Right now Changchun is the city with the least km of metro U/C among those with metro in operation of mainland China (if I said just "China" I would be wrong because AFAIK Gaoxiong in Taiwan has nothing U/C now), although several lines are approved for the short term.

Compared to New York City subway stations Changchun's stations look impressive. I like how across China their subway systems are designed to be unique rather than bland and all looking the same.

China okays $11.45 billion in new urban rail projects in Changchun
Excerpt

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s state planner has approved a total 78.7 billion yuan ($11.45 billion) of urban railway projects in the capital of the northern Jilin province, the country’s first urban rail project to be approved in a year, local media reported on Sunday.

The approval for the projects in Changchun city signals the restart of infrastructure projects that Beijing had put on hold as it sought to contain local government debt, part of its multi-year risk crackdown.

The Politburo, China’s top decision-making body, said in July that China could boost infrastructure spending, confirming a Reuters exclusive that China was planning to ease borrowing curbs on local governments to prop up growth as the economy slows amid a heated trade row with the United States.

The state planner has approved urban railway projects including eight subway lines, with estimated length of 135.4 kilometers for Changchun, the National Business Daily (NBD) said on Sunday, citing an announcement on the Jilin Development and Reform Commission’s website.

That is more than double the number of urban rail lines Changchun currently have in operation right now - one underground metro that just opened last year and two light rail lines.

Line 8 uses same type of rolling stocks like line 3 & 4, so line 3, 4 & 8 are light rail lines.

Line 1 & 2 are metro lines

LIne 55 & 56 are tram lines.

Changchun metro is improving year by year. In last year at last line 2 has opened, it is the 2nd metro line. I think it is the better metro line, and also the busier. The layout is almost like the Bengaluru metro, and of course Kolkata metro, i.e. – cross section, one is north-south line, another is east-west line. Line 2 has also connection with Changchun tram network at two points, among them, the best is at Changchun West rail station, It is one of the best interchange in China, where tram, metro, suburban train – all three types of electric rail transport is meeting. This line also has light rail interchange at two points.

I heard this line is also being extended 1 km after Shuangfen, is it true? What will be the name of that new station, and when it is planned to open?

After opening of line 2 metro, it is one of the best interchange in China, where tram, metro, suburban train – all three types of electric rail transport is meeting.

Changchun tram was one a bigger network with 7 routes, an 88 km, could anyone post here such a map of its maximum extent?

We missed the addition of one station to line 1 on January 26. It's Changchun Zhan (railway station), which finally provides a direct interchange between metro and light rail. No new mileage was added.

weren't metro and light rail already directly connected at Changchun Zhan North and Weixing Sq?
