Metro operator steps up safety control

SHANGHAI Metro operator is eliminating equipment and management flaws in the wake of a rear-end accident last September when two subway trains collided on Line 10 due to a signal glitch, injuring more than 270 passengers.

The city's transport watchdog said they have made five rounds of safety examination since last September and discovered 98 safety problems. The Metro has so far fixed 64 of them, including subsiding tracks near Hailun Road Station. It is still working on other problems.

Despite public complaints about delays caused by technical errors, the Metro operator said the frequency of service delays has declined in recent months.

Shanghai currently has 11 Metro lines in service, totaling 425 kilometers in length. Five new stations were opened last year and 27 trains were added in network expansion.
