Beijing Subway Line 9: Not so lonely any more

This week we’re previewing the new lines expected to open in Shanghai and  Beijing in December 2012. Today, Beijing Line 9!

Poor Beijing Subway Line 9 is a bit of an oddity. Although it opened last year, it only currently connects with the suburban Fangshan Line, passengers arriving at its current northern terminus at Beijing West Railway Station need to walk or take a bus to Line 1.

That’s all about to change with not one, but four new interchange stations. The existing station at Liuliqiao will link to the new Line 10 extension, while there are new interchange stations with Line 1 at Military Museum, Line 6 at Baishiqiao South and Line 4 at National Library.

Line 9 should look like this by the end of the year (click to enlarge!):
