Line 3 stations get cool

COMMUTERS suffering scorching summer heat waiting at Metro Line 3's elevated stations could expect a cool breeze soon as Metro management is about to introduce new waiting enclosures complete with air-conditioners.

The enclosures will be installed on some Line 3 stations in the next few months, Metro officials said yesterday.

Metro workers said that on mid-summer days when there's little wind, the temperature on platforms on Line 3, the city's only completely elevated Metro, could reach 45 degrees Celsius.

Officials said they are sorting through designs for the enclosures.

Metro management also announced that before the end of the year they would start building new walkways between lines 3, 4 and 9 at the southern hub Yishan Road Station.

At the moment the nearly 80,000 passengers that change trains at the station daily have to walk long distances.

Officials said they would build an underground walkway to connect lines 3 and 4 directly and also set up two outdoor staircases connecting the Line 9 platform to lines 3 and 4.

The facilities are planned to open before the Shanghai World Expo next year.
