City unveils Metro Line 11 plan

SHANGHAI'S planning authority has completed charting the west section of Metro Line 11 where it will connect to neighboring Suzhou City in Jiangsu Province.

The authority published the route on its Website yesterday and will hear public comments until January 20, today's Shanghai Morning Post reported.

According to the blueprints, the west terminal of the line will extend from the current terminus at Moyu Road to Huaqiao, bordering Shanghai and Suzhou, with three stops at Zhaofeng Road, Guangming Road and Huaqiao.

The extension will run parallel to the Shanghai-Chengdu Highway.

As planned, construction of the extension will start next year and will open to traffic in 2013 when a trip from downtown Shanghai to Huaqiao will be cut to 40 minutes. Trains will run at 100kmh on the line.

The 46-kilometer-long Line 11 will be the longest subway route in Shanghai, with a northern branch at Jiading New City and the western branch connecting to Suzhou. Its first phrase will open at the year's end.
