A little correction: Beibei will be the Northwestern terminus of line 6 when completed. Now it ends at Kangzhuang AFAIK.

Please tell me she photoshopped the pink escalators too!!!

And Beibei is not a station on Line 6. It's open from Kangzhuang to Wulidian.

Seriously, Line 6 looks like ass.

Well looks like Beibei Station (why not translate it into North North Station?) is not even the northernmost station because it will be Wulukou (with a numerator of 6 and a denominator of 28) that will be the terminus next year. Why not have directional signs showing the current terminus instead of a future intermediate station?

Chongqing Metro is totally bush-league.

It doesn't bother me. And once again I'm pleasantly surprised by the lack of Chinglish in cq metro. All of a sudden it has become one of the nicest metros in China.

That pink escalator is ridiculous.

Although the concept of colour-coding its handrail must ultimately be helpful.

Which metro systems in China use Chinglish?

Chinglish mostly comes up on the unofficial maps that are circulated prior to metros opening. Then stations open and the names either make sense in English or are purely transliterated.

Sometimes you do get this, but I would say this is more sloppy than Chinglish:


Xian Metro

The pink color contributes to feminism.

Even in the bush-league, there is no whining .

The station seems unusually high, at least 15 meters above ground judging by the size of nearby vehicles. It could be a half that height and still allow cross-streets to pass underneath. Why is the platform so high above the ground?

CQ's landscape is like some part of San Francisco, steep slops/hills are everywhere. I guess the high elevated tracks are most convenient to connect two high points.

That's also the reason why monorails are built first in CQ.

Seriously, I too would like to know why this system's set so high above ground, for I've seen pictures here where there's neither hill nor slope nearby.

Of course you can find a flatt piece of land in the city, but in overall Chongquing is all hills and valleys








Plus the monorail has to go over roads which make it a must to build that high...
