With the opening of Chengdu Line 5 and phase II of Line 10 December this year, more than 100kilometers of new tracks were added in 2019. The total route length of the Chengdu metro system now extends as far as 341km, which equals to Top 8 in the world, nearly equal to the whole France subway transit.
With the opening of subway line 1 on 27th September 2010, Chengdu became the first city in Western China to boast a metro system. The city is midway through its ambitious drive to build itself an extensive metro system. City planners hope it’ll alleviate congestion and pollution, improving general standards of living.
📍Metro Line 5 opened 41 stations at once end of December, making it the longest length construction in one time for Chengdu Metro.
📍Phase two of Metro Line 10 was opened end of December 2019, adding ten stops in southwest direction.
