Passenger services started on the second metro line in Changsha on June 28. Regular test runs on Line 1 had started in March.
Linking Kaifu District Government to Shangshuangtang on the right bank of the Xiang River, the 23·6 km line includes 19 underground and one elevated station. Interchange is provided with Line 2 at Wuyi Square, and with long distance main line services at Kaifu Temple and Zhongxin Square.
Services operate between 06.30 and 23.00 using a fleet of six-car Type B trainsets that draw power at 1·5 kV DC from overhead lines.
Four more metro lines are planned in addition to the two which are now operational. Line 3 is scheduled to open in 2018. The 36·4 km route would have an interchange with Line 1 at Houjiatang. The following year should see the opening of the 33·5 km Line 4, which will offer interchange with Line 1 at Huangtuling.
