Wow they are really doing spoke and hub, I've never seen so many tightly packed concentric circles like that.
Talk about convenient shortcuts.

Seems to be opening tomorrow.

Chengdu Metro's first use of A size trains, first subway to airport, first use of LCD dynamic displays and first three line transfer station. Judging from the expansion plans for Chengdu these features will become a norm not an exception. The inside of the train has got a little Japanese vibe to it with the earthy neutral accents everywhere.

It looks like the Spanish solution is also used for Line 1 Tianfu Square station and there will be a cross-platform transfer at Line 3 Taipingyuan Station allowing passengers originating on Line 10 to transfer seamlessly to northbound Line 3 train.

will test in on the 23rd Great news!

edit.
I must say that Chengdu metro security staff are evolving This time they allowed me to carry a deodorant (a spray can up to 150ml is now allowed) within my luggage, as well as bottle of water
Last year this was unacceptable, and I had to leave all the above on the security gates.

Thanks,

Okay, now that line 6 has officially subsumed what was previously known as line 11 (as shown on the map I posted a few months ago, with line 11 being another line), once all of it is completed (from Taiqing Lu to Laijiagou) it will run for 72 km with 58 stations, making it one of the longest metro lines in the world. However the same map shows some longer planned lines, like line 13 at over 90 km.

Anyway, the most immediate opening is that of the inner ring, line 7. It is rumored it may open soon, currently set at the end of this year, however we already know that the end of current year may be as early as the end of October, and we are in November.

It's not rumored, it is officially confirmed. It will be put into operation at 9:00 a.m. I already know line 7 as the "inner ring" even if the outer ring (line 9) wouldn't be completed for some time afterwards.

Next up for opening is the 3rd phase of line 1, due for March 2018. Line 1 will be extended in three directions (!), thus creating a short branch line in the South which will be absorbed by line 15 in the medium term.

The First Chengdu Loop Line Opens Today!
As promised in September, Chengdu’s Loop Line, Line 7, has opened to the public today

With almost 40km of length, this new line will surely cut down travel time to plenty of people living in the city center.



Not only that, but the traffic among other lines is expected to improve as more and more people will start to use this line for their daily journeys.

Thanks to this new line also several metro trips are now cheaper as the minimum distance between several stations has been shortened (Chengdu Metro Fares are based on the minimum distance between stations).

The problem with the inner/outer terminology is that it's already used on line 7 to denote directions:

"inner loop" -- clockwise
"outer loop" - counterclockwise

Chengdu inaugurates orbital metro line

Source: IRJ | December 06, 2017

Chengdu added an orbital line to its metro network on December 6 with the start of trial passenger operation on the 38.6km Line 7.

The line has 31 stations, including interchanges with all other metro lines and main line services at Chengdu North, South and East stations.

Line 7’s stations are colour-coded to represent the four seasons, with green (spring) in the east, red (summer) in the south, yellow (autumn) in the west, and blue (winter) in the north.

Services are operated by a fleet of CRRC Chengdu Type A metro trains, each accommodating up to 2600 passengers. The aluminium-bodied cars are 23m long and 3.1m wide. Each six-car train is formed of four powered and two unpowered vehicles.

Line 7 has a design capacity of 55,850 passengers per hour.

At least there's one city in China planning a decent network. All other cities are too humble...
