subway cities may be expanded to 50 cities with daily average rail transit investment of more than 780million last year

China Construction Machinery Information

in 2014, 36 cities were building subway, with a daily investment of more than 780million yuan. With the rapid development of rail transit projects, subways, which were originally owned only by first tier cities, are gradually becoming popular in second tier cities and even some third tier cities

daily average investment exceeds 780million

according to the information disclosed by the "2015 China International Rail Transit Exhibition" opened in Shanghai on April 8, 36 cities in mainland China completed a total investment of 285.7 billion yuan in rail transit projects under construction last year, with a daily average of more than 780million yuan, a substantial increase of 33% over the previous year. Urban rail transit has become the third largest "gold absorption pool" in the field of transportation infrastructure construction, second only to roads and railways

liguoyong, inspector of the basic industry department of the national development and Reform Commission, believes that the supernormal and rapid development of China's urban rail transit industry is not only due to the accelerated pace of urbanization, but also due to the accelerated reform of relevant administrative examination and approval systems

in may, 2013, according to the requirements of the State Council, the project feasibility report of a single line has been delegated to the provincial investment department for approval according to the national approved plan. In 2014, 16 rail transit construction projects were approved by local governments, with a total length of about 340km and a total investment of more than 260billion yuan. The approval progress was significantly accelerated

huxiaodeng, counselor of Guizhou provincial government and director of Urban Economics Research Institute of Guizhou Academy of Social Sciences, analyzed that there is a rigid demand for accelerating the construction of urban rail transit. China's subway construction started late and has a small stock. Many central cities have only begun to build subway in recent years. With the acceleration of urbanization, hundreds of millions of farmers have entered the city, and the traditional ground transportation mode in central cities can no longer meet the demand of supply. "Many old urban areas simply cannot widen and transform roads. Technically, they can only expand underground and in the air."

on the other hand, under the condition that steady growth still requires investment, urban rail transit is the field with the highest degree of compliance with supply and demand. Huxiaodeng said that at present, there is a serious excess of industrial capacity and a weak demand for real estate. Only the investment in transportation infrastructure still has a large investment space. "Urban rail transit is a public product. The focus of this round of investment is the short board public product."

maobaohua, director of the Department of urban rail transit of Beijing Jiaotong University, has also repeatedly analyzed that the subway does play a role in expanding investment and stimulating economic growth, but more importantly, at present, the ground traffic in many cities has been very congested, and the urban public transport infrastructure has obviously lagged behind. Therefore, in this round of investment, investing money in this aspect can meet the needs of the people, and the risk is relatively low

it will increase to 50 cities in the future

by the end of 2014, 38 cities in China had been approved by the state to build rail transit, with a total planned mileage of more than 6880 kilometers

most of the first and second tier cities in China have been included, and even Xuzhou and Nantong, the two traditional third tier cities, have been approved in the past two years, that is, green, reduced and recyclable. In the future, more third tier cities will join the army of subway construction. According to the aforementioned Xinhua news agency, it is predicted that by 2020, there will be about 50 cities with the conditions for the construction of rail transit

huxiaodeng predicts that more cities will join the subway force in the future, such as Quanzhou, Wenzhou and other prefecture level cities in the East with a very large economic aggregate, and Luoyang, Hohhot and other cities in the central and western regions with large areas and heavy traffic are expected to start subway construction

take Luoyang as an example. In January this year, a relevant person from Luoyang rail transit office said that the urban rail transit planning of Luoyang had previously been reported to the national development and Reform Commission and was in the process of being approved. If approved, Luoyang will become the first prefecture level city to build a subway outside the central and Western municipalities and provincial capital cities

many experts said that although some of China's third tier cities are small and medium-sized cities in China, they are big cities in developed countries. These cities also have a large number of migrant population and certain traffic needs. It is reasonable to build oneortwo lines

however, some people believe that it should be more cautious whether the third tier cities need to build subways in the future. Dingchangfa, an associate professor of economics at Xiamen University, said that third - and fourth tier cities should not be too optimistic about the population growth that urbanization may bring in the future. At present, a major reason for the serious excess of real estate in many third - and fourth tier cities is that due to the insufficient industrial development and general public resources, these cities have limited attraction to the 2.1 proprietary and unique computer control system of the migrant population. In recent years, the population of many third - and fourth tier cities has not increased, but is still decreasing

dingchangfa said that compared with the expensive cost of the subway, many third tier cities can consider building light rail, tram or BRT (Bus Rapid Transit System), and it is not necessary to build a subway whose input signal or load should be limited to the specified range. In addition, traffic congestion can be reduced by optimizing urban planning and other measures, such as rational planning of urban office and living areas, so as to avoid suburban counties becoming a complete "sleeping city"
