..which of the lines will be connected to the China-ASEAN Commercial Center..
Line 1

List of the stations(west to east):
Shibu Station - South Vocational-Technical College Station - Pengfei Road Station - Xixiangtang Terminal - National University Station - Kiyokawa Station - Zoo Station - Luban Road Station - Guangxi University Station - White Cang Ridge station - train station - Chaoyang Square Station - Xinmin Road Station - the nation's Square Station - Ma Village Station - South Lake Station - the Jinhu Square Station - Convention Center Station - Vientiane City Station - ASEAN Business District station - Feng Ling stations - Langdong Terminal - BAIHUALING station - foziling Station - East Railway Station.

..which of the lines will be connected to ... Nanning Airport..
There is no plan to extend metro to the airport. The airport is 32 km southwest of the centre of the city (probably around 20km of city boundary) and there is no inhabited areas along. Perhaps is too expensive to build this long express rail only for airport passenger use. Airport express buses can do the job..
In the far future line 5 could be extended southwards to the airport

Nanning Metro

From the pictures it looks like they are digging, not boring, any information on the depth of the subway. It looks like it may be just below the street surface, similar to Boston's. Any local info on that?

Typically in China stations and crossover/junction/pocket track structures are cut and cover and the rest is bored. In some cases, like out in an open greenfield the line can be cut and cover but so far judging from the pictures most of the line is bored, only stations to be cut and covered.

minzu dadao

Thanks for all the additional pics, very interesting.

Rockass, some of the pics you posted are right in front of HuiDong, where I have a condo (Flat). Looks like you are in the building that has those rectangular bump outs? Did they reroute the Minzu Dadao traffic flow, or just take out the moped lane and greenery, and start digging? There was nothing happening when I was last there in August. The construction pace in China always astonishes me. Especially compared to here in America.

Do you know where the exits for that station will be? Will they tie into the underground shopping center at the 5 elephants square? Or be further east towards Admiral?

Jin hu square station (金湖广场站)

The station itself is between Jinhu lu and Jinpu lu along Minzu dadao. So they'll have exits at the both ends of the station, five elephant square and bar street as you can see on the blueprint below

They are not digging Minzu dadao for the station, but as you said they removed all the greenery on the south side of the road and working along. Although they doing another project at the same time as they call JinHu Square Ring Road (金湖广场环道的)

building underpass under Minzu dadao. They working on it now so the Minzu dadao trafic is redirected around JinHu Square
