KUNMING | Line 1

The first phase of line 1 (12 stations from Xiaodongcun to University City South) opens for trial operation on 20 May. Daily operating hours will be 7am-7pm with 8 minute headways.

Travel speed: 39.3 km/h
Max speed: 80 km/h
One way running time = approx. 34 min
It will NOT connect to the existing segment of Line 6 from East Bus Station to Airport Center.

Apparently, also on 20 May the operating hours of Line 6 will expand, from the current 9am - 6:10pm to 7am - 7:05pm.

There's a good map here showing lines 1, 2, 3 and 6 (construction has not started on lines 4 and 5 - they are shown as thin lines without stations):

http://urbanrail.net/as/cn/kunming/kunming.htm

Kunming appears to be piggy-backing off Chongqing's success in opening line 6 before lines 4 and 5.

Those are really short operating hours. They barely cover the rush hours. Many people begin their commute earlier than 7 AM. And ending at 7 PM means it can't transport people who hit the bars at night. Getting drunks off the road is one benefit of public transportation which won't be in effect here.

I hope the hours are only preliminary. I wish China's metros would operate 24/7 like New York City's subway.

The subway's trains will run at an average speed of 39.3 km per hour, taking 34 minutes for each one-way trip, the manager said. Construction on the line started in April 2010. It went into trial operation on April 9 this year.

China adds new cities as operating metro system every year, at last in Kunming.

Kunming comparatively constructed metro quicker, but probably the first Chinese city, which opened its metro system by a dedicated airport line.

I’ve some questions (arose after viewing some websites). Please answer one by one –

1) Left side, right side or both sides, - which type of platforms are in most numbers in Kunming subway network?
2) Why Kunming opened line 6 at first, by jumping all first five lines?
3) Which is the highest station of Kunming metro?
4) Which is the busiest metro station?
5) Which stations have interchange facility with suburban rail network?
6) Where is/are the depot(s) of the subway network?

2) Why you ask such a question? In the overall plan the airport line is line 6, and the new airport opened last year, long before line 1 came into operation.

Until now, the operating distance of Kunming metro is 40.2 kilometers. As planned, six operation metro lines will total 187.6 kilometers in 2019.

So far, northern sections of No. 1 and 2 lines are under construction in the first period. Equipments’ installation in the northern sections are expected to be completed by the end of October. All testings, cold-running and hot-running trials in the northern sections will be finished before the first 15 days of December. And in the midmonth of December, the northern sections of Kunming Northern Railway Station will enter into the debug phase.

The first-phase metro construction in Jinning County is scheduled to be in trial operation on June 30, 2014. Besides, the northwest extending line of Line 1, the Line 2 in the second phase, the Line 3 in the second phase and the Line 6 in the second phase will also be on the construction agenda within this year.

Hi Kunming Metro fans!

So I'm working on a project of mine to try and place on Google maps as many of the future metro lines as possible. You can download and locally open the latest HTML file in your web browser here:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4p7...it?usp=sharing

More info about this project can be found in this thread - you're welcome to contribute!:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post107511648

After seeing kuming tiger's post above, I'm not sure my dates for when the lines will open are correct - this is what I have configured:
Line 1 Northern Phase: the end of this year (4th Quarter)
Line 2 Phase I: First Quarter of 2014
Line 3: Sometime in 2016

Or do I need to set different dates? Thanks!

Line 3 sounds about right

Lines 1 and 2 better add a quarter to each one.

There will be no further openings in 2013.
