Looks good.

Wuhan was long overdue for a sizeable metro system.

Very nice stations, I see that there are large areas for decoration only, I assume those spaces can be converted in future expansions when passenger traffic gets too high.

Wuhan's metro is fairly new at less than 10 years old. Line 2 only opened in December 2012 and is the first metro line to cross the Yangtze River.



Line 2 stations have artistic decorations. Here are 2 trains set against the Yellow Crane Tower. Interestingly, there is no station near the actual tower.

In PRC terminology, anything prior to 2012 in Wuhan was not metro but "light rail."

Line 1 of the Wuhan Metro is still a metro. It's just an elevated line, which the PRC always calls 'light rail'. Still 100% metro. Just elevated in stead of subway.

Yepp, Wuhan is striving to become central China's megacity of maybe more than 15 million.

The density on the north bank looks insane, but even in the east it looks like it has great density.

Awesome.
