nevermind, found the answer on my own. Woopee!!!

When I return to the city in September/October, we will definitely use Line 1. ....

Here is the news clip:

Chongqing's Metro Line 1 now open!

On July 28th at 09:00, Chongqing Urban and Rural Construction Commission held the opening ceremony for the new Metro Line 1. The new line has 14 stations and runs east-west from Jiaochangkou to Shapingba taking 25 minutes for a complete journey.

At the first phase of its opening, line 1 will be limited to 10 operational stations, leaving four closed, namely Chaotianmen, Xiaoshenzi, Gaomiaocun and Majiayan. Tickets range from 2-4 RMB.

In the initial 10-days of operation, Line 1 has already broke the million rider mark, with Shapingba being the busiest station on the route. Impressive, though not too surprising.

Can't wait until Line 3 opens in a few weeks. Then, next year with the opening of Line 6 (another conventional subway), Chongqing's core city will be well served by metro!

That's awesome. Within the span of a few months, Chongqing has tripled its amount of transit lines. Line 3 is the first line to cross the Yangtze and Jialing rivers.

I think they meant, it opened September 29 (not October).

Great news, nonetheless - Chongqing now has 3 metro lines in operation!!!!

I looked at a map of the Chongqing metro system on the Urban Rail website < http://urbanrail.net/as/chon/chongqing.htm >. It appears the two monorail lines cross at Niujiatuo Station. I am not aware of any other place in the world where two public transit monorail lines cross. Does anyone have a photo of this station?

Well, Chongqing is not just the city. Wanzhou is technically a district of Chongqing despite being 223 kilometers in straight line from the city core.

I'm looking at the future extensions of current lines. Line 1 will eventually reach Binshan Qinggang, out of the outer ring, and will have 28 stations. Line 2 will be extended to Yudong and will have a branch from Tiantangbao to Zhongliangshan. It will have 28 stations. And finally line 3, which will run from Yudong to Jurenba and will have... 46 stations! And of course the other 15 lines.

There also appears to be a discrepancy in google maps as to the location of this station, thus I'm not certain if the following
image be of the same station:


clickable...


I don't see more than one pair of monorails in either photo, plus urbanrail.net's map indicates the lines intersecting outdoors

If you look in Google Maps, this photo is accurate, just a little older (landscaping in the center). The crossing station is just south of the highway below in this picture.

Furthermore, there's no compass bearing indicated to the photos I browsed. Besides, I've just read big-dog's announcement from yesterday , so I guess patience be the best suggestion for now.

Thanks for alerting me of my misspelling. I can see the intersection in the Google aerial view at the following link.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=niujia...China&t=h&z=18

Line 2 follows the bank of the Jialing River. Line 3 crosses the river parallel to a bridge for motor vehicles. The stations for the two lines at Niujiaotuo are separate, but I am sure there is a walkway connecting them.

According to the map at Urbanrail < http://www.urbanrail.net/as/chon/chongqing.htm >, Line 3 also crosses the Yangtze River. Does anyone know the configuration of that crossing? Scanning across aerial photos, I don't see the line. Is it on the lower deck of a motor vehicle bridge?

I believe Line 3 crossing the Yangtze mostly it will be a tunnel since the interchange station in Lianglukou Line 3 platform is below Line 1 platform and both platform are underground.
