    Four new subway lines opened at the same time to public in Beijing, Dec 30, 2012.
    Lines includes Line No.6 first phase, No.10 second phase, south No.8 and north No.9. this new lines adds up to 448 km of Beijing's underground capacity.

    all platforms are gated like this to provide more security to passengers.
    With this fence, it is impossible for someone to shove someone else off the platform as what happened in Newyork.

    Convenient design guarantee easier switch of lines within one platform (beijing subways are multiple floored)

    New York metro is the worst subway, they do not care about it, very glad to see more and more China vs US threads

    Given the traffic snarls that delay everyone, the idea of having subways is an excellent idea.

    It is clean, efficient and fast.

    The Singapore underground was one of the pleasures of being in Singapore.

    I see that the opening of Metro Line 13 in Shanghai does not even warrant a brief mention these days. :cool2:
