As fast, efficient and large-capacity mass transit systems, suburban city railway solutions are being favored by more and more municipalities. In 2019, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) issued new “Guidance on the Cultivation and Development of Modern Metropolitan Areas”, suggesting that the development of metropolitan area suburban railways should be strongly prioritized through measures such as the reinforcement of existing railways, the expansion of local routes and the reconstruction of station platforms. Furthermore, priority should be given to the use of existing resources in the operation of suburban train lines, to the construction of new suburban railway lines in accordance with need, and to integrating suburban railway operations into metropolitan rail transit systems, as well as in aligning with metro planning in areas where conditions permit, and in line with the “Four Network Integration” strategy connecting up mainline railway, intercity railway, city suburban railway, and metropolitan railway transportation networks. The development of municipal suburban railways is of great significance to meeting rising commuting needs and in accelerating the realization of convenient transfers.
In December 2019, the State Council of China released the outline of the “Yangtze River Delta Regional Integration Development Plan”, which emphasized the need to further “connect the Yangtze River Delta with rail”. This will see the Yangtze River Delta area experience an acceleration of a large number of rail projects in the future. What’s more, recently the NDRC and China’s Ministry of Transport officially issued the “High-quality Integrated Development Plan for Transportation in the Yangtze River Delta”, which highlighted the necessity to accelerate the effective integration of the Yangtze River Delta’s transportation networks, organically connecting up the various levels of mainline, inter-city and metropolitan rail transportation.
In order to build an exchange platform for the development of rail transit integration in the Yangtze River Delta, especially for the development of suburban railways, the “Yangtze River Delta City (Suburban) Railway Planning and Development Forum” will be hosted by the Yangtze River Delta Transportation Integration Research Center with the support of the Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission and the Yangtze River Delta Regional Cooperation Office on September 2nd 2020 at the Shanghai International Convention Center.
The forum takes the planning and construction of modern, integrated suburban railway as its mark, and has invited representatives of the Transportation Departments and Bureaus of Shanghai and the three provinces of the Yangtze River Delta; in addition to those involved in similar developments integrating Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei; Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao; Chengdu and Chongqing; the Bohai Rim and other urban agglomerations and metropolitan areas in China. Professionals invited to participate in the promotion of the healthy development of the Yangtze River Delta’s suburban railway networks include representatives of transport system operators, transportation industry associations and transportation related academic institutions, urban planning and design companies specializing in transportation research in urban agglomerations and metropolitan areas, rail transit construction and core equipment manufacturers, and intelligent rail transit manufacturers.
