    A little more about Phase II of Line 8:

    • Through trains from Shiguang Road to the Aerospace Museum run about once every 15 minutes. That’s every third train. Minimum gaps are about 11 minutes during the evening rush hour.

    • Most trains end at Yangsi. When Jiyang Road opens up later in the year, they’ll continue through to Jiyang Road.

    • Jiyang Road opens late 2009 and will be a three-line interchange. The Line 8 platform sits above a cross-platform Lines 6/11 combo platform. The whole station is underground.

    • Minor corrections to Line 8 names: “Lianhang Road” and “Aerospace Museum”. 😉

    Another minor correction to a name of a Line 8 station: “Lingzhao Xincun” instead of “Linzhao Xincun”.
