Line 1 - 24.7 km - 22 stations - opens by the end of 2014
It's now 2015 and... line 1 is not finished yet :D. They currently expect it for 2016. The Baidupedia entry now says as many as 15 lines are planned, as well as 3 suburban lines.

PS: I've read line 3 is now U/C.

Line 1 is said to open at the end of 2016?
This is a very ambitious project by the local government, if the govt wants to build all 10 lines, then they will probably finish by 2026?
