Don't know. Right now stations 3/40 to 3/45 are under construction. So we don't know what the service patterns will be like.

This has to be one of the most unique monorail stations out there! It is certainly the most unique in Chongqing, other than the monorail station in a high-rise building!

The track on top is the lead track to the maintenance and storage depot.

This is the turn-around track in the depot.

Its not the best picture, but this is another massive bridge for the monorail to the final station on the line!

What happens when a monorail train breaks down? How do the people get off? Wait until it is towed to a station? And what about if a fire breaks out?

I ask because I see a lot of stretches without walkways next to them to allow for exiting the trains in case of emergency.


By the way, what camera did you use?

Monorail systems that do not have walkways use a variety of ways to evacuate passengers in case of a breakdown. Probably the best way is to bring another train on the same track up to the disabled monorail, open up the end doors, and transfer the passengers that way.

Refer to this page on the Monorail Society website.

http://www.monorails.org/tMspages/KimEd3.html

Most monorails being built today have emergency walkways for the whole route, including the Chongqing Monorail Line 3.

The Chongqing Monorail Line 3 now features 8 car trains in regular service. These beautiful trains are newly built monorails with nice bright LED lighting!

(Can anyone tell me when these longer trains started service?)

That's a decent trainset. 4 car ones looked more like an attraction.

I tried to use this map to find the location of this station opening on line 6, but was unsuccessful. I decided to upload a couple maps that I found when I was traveling around Chongqing. One is very fanciful and artsy, and one is more realistic.

Line 4 - A type cars - phase 1 - 19.5 km - 11 stations - Construction started on December 3, 2013 and it is expected to open to traffic in December 2017.

Line 5 - A type cars - phase 1 - 39.7 km - 25 stations - Construction started on December 3, 2013 and it is expected to open to traffic in September 2017.

Line 6 - north extension from Yuelai to Shaheba - 13.7 km - 9 stations - Construction is planned to commence in 2016 and it is expected to open to traffic in 2020.

Line 9 - A type cars - 37.6 km - 26 stations - Construction is planned to commence this year 2015 and it is expected to open to traffic in 2020.

Line 10 - A type cars - 44.7 km - 27 stations - Construction started in May, 2014 and it is expected to open to traffic in 2017.

Circle line - A type cars - 50.9 km - 33 stations - Construction started on October 28, 2013 and it the northern half and the southern half are planned to open to traffic in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

According to the Chongqing city rapid rail transit construction plan of the second round (2012 - 2020) the total length of Chongqing metro by 2020 will be 412.5 km with 255 stations. But it doesn't en here, 9 more lines are being planned so that Chongqing will have a total of 18 lines in the future.

So that's it - no more unopened stations on active lines. For now.

At least not in Chongqing. IIRC line 3 had a ton of missing stations when it first opened. The same happened on line 6 in the Northwest. Anyway, the Chinese record of unopened station for the longest time is shared by Guanqiao and Qingsheng on Guangzhou's line 4, with 9 years and counting (however Qingsheng will fall as it is expected to open this year). Then there's Chenxiang Lu on Shanghai's line 11 (6 years) and Gaozeng again in Guangzhou, this time on line 3 (5 years). I'm not counting four stops in Beijing's line 13 as the weren't planned when the line was first conceived.

Out of all of these, Gaozeng is the only underground one, right?

Have any of these actually been built and left unopened, or have they not been built at all?
