Subway station goes one-way

METRO passengers seeking to transfer from Line 12 to Line 8 at Qufu Road Station during the rush hour will be required to follow a one-way system designed to ease congestion, subway operators said yesterday.

As of Saturday, Qufu Road will be the western terminus for Line 12, so the new rules will come into play from Monday.

“The one-way system is intended to reduce the burden on Line 8 at the interchange station,” Line 12 managing director Zhu Zhenhua said.

People arriving at Qufu Road on Line 12 who wish to change to Line 8 must take the escalators up two floors then come back down a level, he said.

The station is built over three levels, with Line 12 being the lowest and Line 8 in the middle. Despite running shorter trains, Line 8, with 900,000 passengers per day, is far busier than Line 12, with 130,000, Zhu said.

The first Line 12 train will leave the new terminus at 5:57am and the last at 10:17pm.

To get further information, in Chinese, about train times and other facilities at Qufu Road, passengers can scan the QR codes posted around the new station.

An equivalent English service will be introduced in about two months’ time, operators said.
