Nanjing opens two lines

21 July 2014

Nanjing Metro Line 10 and suburban line S1 to the airport in the capital of Jiangsu province in Eastern China opened on 1 July 2014.

Line 10 was built as a 15.9km Olympic Stadium - Yushanlu extension of Line 1's 5.7km Andemen - Olympic Stadium branch, which it has now absorbed.

Line 10 has one elevated and 13 underground stations, and an end to end journey time of around 40 minutes.

The 35.8 km Line S1 was originally planned as metro Line 6. It connects Nanjing South station with Lukou International Airport. A 50km second phase from the airport to the Gaochun district is scheduled to open in 2015.
