The compound sponsor station names are canceled because of public backlash.

Metro Line 2 will officially open on December 28.

Metro Line 2 will officially open on December 28. On November 20, a hearing was held to discuss the fares for Metro Line 1, 2, and 4. 2/3 of the representatives present voted in favor of the second plan.
Metro Line 1 is 28.73-km long and is fully elevated. It starts at Dongwu Avenue and ends at Dijiao. Test runs for Line 1 began in 2004, and it became fully operational in 2010. Metro Line 2(1st phase) is 27.98-km long, and it runs mostly underground. It starts in Jinyitan in Hankou and ends at Optics Valley Square in Wuchang. It will be operational this December. Metro Line 4(1st phase) is 16.49-km long. All of it is underground,starting at the Wuchang Railway Station and ending at the Wuhan Railway Station. It will be operational next year.

Yes it's ridiculous making station name commerciaized. It's good to remove all those trash names.

Well, if getting a sponsor means the difference between being able to build a subway, or not being able to build a subway, then I am all for it. But if it's not necessary, then I would rather not have it.

I forget which city in China it was, but I recall hearing advertisements on next station announcements. It's a lot of clutter, but if it subsidizes the fare, then it may be worthwhile to have but only occasionally.

Nanjing has it too, such as the Nanjing International Center / Xuanwumen station.

Switching to rail to the other side costs slightly more but could prevent a huge catastrophe if things head south for some reason.

Generally speaking yes, but in Wuhan's case I doubt Hanjiang Rd Station is near Zhouheiya's HQ. Probably very close to a outlet though since they are everywhere.

Nice art in the stations.
So, the line 1 is fully elevated and line 2 fully underground?
