Line 16 to link with 2 lines, maglev station

Metro Line 16 will be linked to Line 2, Line 7 and the maglev train station at Longyang Road by the end of the year.

Construction of the main structure of Line 16’s Longyang Road Station was completed this week. Along with Huaxia Road M. Station, Line 16, which connects with Line 11 at Luoshan Road Station, will be extended to the junction of Line 2, Line 7 and the maglev.

Currently, Line 16 passengers take shuttle buses from Luoshan Road to Longyang Road for transfer.

Line 16 will also shorten its interval during weekends from Saturday.

The Metro operators decided to adjust the train timings according to passenger load information they collected after two weeks since the line was put into use on December 29 last year.

Train intervals will be shortened from 20 minutes to 10 minutes from 8am to 8pm on weekends. During other weekend operation hours, the interval will be 15 to 17 minutes. Line 16 receives more load on weekends because it runs past several scenic spots.
