WUHAN | Public Transport





First line opened the 28th of September 2004

For the moment only 10 kilometres long


But line 2, line 4, and line 1's extension is under construction. Aparently they plan to open the new lines by 2010


Long term plan, 12 lines and 530km

Thanks for the update! I hope they will open the new lines soon, line 2 has a station just behind my house. Recently traffic near my house has been so bad, it takes me 30 minutes to go 3 km by taxi.

Do you live in Wuhan?
Can you tell me what takes longer - going by taxi from one end of the town to the other or taking high-speed rail from Wuhan to Guangzhou?

Well from my house which is on the backside of Hankou railway station to my friends house in Wuchang, near Wuhan Optical Valley(pretty much end to end) I would say taxi is longer.

I've experienced Wuhan's traffic and it's horrendous, which has knock on effects for noise and air pollution. I've not been to another city that more badly needed a proper subway system as this. The two new lines and the extension to line 1 will really transform travel in the city beyond all recognition.

Sounds like the traffic is really bad in Wuhan. Is it bad everywhere all day? Or in certain rush-hour directions? Will the metro be crowded one way and not so crowded the other way (same time of day)?

Yeah I would say it's bad almost everywhere, and during rush hours and weekends I dont even think of going out. The metro will help a lot, but they also need to make serious improvements to the roads in Wuhan. The worst thing is the taxi drivers all have their shift change at 6pm everyday, it's impossible to get a taxi from 5-7pm. Imagine 5 million ppl getting off work and wanting to go home and not a taxi in sight

Sounds like a ridiculous time for taxi drivers to change shifts. Are the metro trains long? 6 cars? 8 cars? Since there are few available taxis, the metro will be jam-packed.

Hard to say the exact population, but official figures put it at 10 million. Generally speaking, in Chinese cities, population numbers are higher than the "official" because there is always a large migrant population which is hard to account for.

Unfortunately, the current line 1 metro trains are only 4 cars and since the platforms are only long enough for the 4 car trains I doubt that will change anytime soon. I'm not sure what they will use on the new lines, let's hope 8 car trains for everyone's sanity!

Line 1 extension to open on Thursday July 29th:

http://www.whrt.gov.cn/ggl/201007/t20100727_10525.htm

Lenght of the first line will more than double, from the current 10km to 26km.

The first line between Zongguan and Huanpu road was opened in 2004. This is more or less how the new line will look like from Thursday:


Lines two (28 km) and four (30 km) are currently under construction, and will open in 2012.

Line three will began construction next year.

On the above map, are the black dashed lines for regular trains? It appears they don't cross the main river through the city. Or is that wrong?

Does anyone know what happened to line 5?

Metro projects underway in Changsha, Xi'an, Wuhan and Xiamen
13 July 2011

CHINA: Work on the first phase of Changsha metro lines 3 and 4 is expected to get underway by the end of the year. The southwest-northeast Line 3 would be 33·4 km long with 24 stations and Line 4 would run northwest-southeast for 29·1 km with 21 stations.

Construction of the Yuhuazhai – Yanpingmen and Jixiangcun – Xiaozhai sections of Xi’an metro Line 3 began on May 30, while work on other sections should start in October. The 50·5 km line with 31 stations is due to open at the end of 2015.

A feasibility study is being evaluated for the 28 km, 23-station first phase of Wuhan metro Line 3 linking Tunyang Avenue and Hankou. Costing 20·4bn yuan, opening is envisaged in 2015.

An Urban Rail Transit Project for Xiamen covering a planned a 247 km, six-line network is also being assessed.
