Thank you. Is it possible to photograph (a) the interchange station more/fully and (b) the crossing of Lines 2 and 3 itself?

What's the purpose of the concrete slab/decking underneath the sloping monorail line (second photo above)? Why (so soon) a temporary barrier down the passageway itself? Will a permanent one be installed (I see a couple of drilled holes at the bottom of the photo [right above])?

Urbanrail.net seems to have a decent map of the network, including line 6 which is U/C.

Chongqing Monorail Line 3 extends from Yuanyang to north
2011-11-03 14:52:57

CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Chongqing Rail Transit Group said on November 2, 2011, the last track girder in the section between Ertang and Chongqing Airport of Monorail Line 3 is set down. Meanwhile, the Garden Expo Station, Cuiyun Station and Changfu Road Station in the section between Yuanyang and Changfu on Line 3 will be opened to traffic on November 8.

Then the trial operation in the section between Lianglukou and Changfu on Line 3 will be realized, and 2 new trains will be added on this line. A full journey on the line will be increased to 35 minutes from the former 29 minutes.

Line 3 may extend to Chongqing Airport and Ertang. At that time, a complete trial operation of the 39.1 kilometers Chongqing Monorail Line 3, with 29 stations, will be finished. (Translated by Deng Jun, Fathom Language Limited)

wow, so very soon we will be able to take line 3 from the airport into the city. !!!

First city in the interior of China with an airport metro (and only the 3rd/4th in all of China - after Beijing, Shanghai, and HK). ....

oops, I did forget about Guangzhou!

Chongqing will be 5th then, but the first for the inside of China is the real point i think.

Chongqing will be the 5th metro in Mainland China to have connection with an airport, but the 8th in greater China (Including Taiwan, where Taipei/Taibei and Kaohsiung/Gaoxiong have metro connecting with airports).

I believe he's talking about Changchun (a northeastern Chinese city) having a HSR(250km/h) connecting the city and its airport. It's not a metro in real sense though (rail transportation).

"Chongqing Rail Transit Line 3 opens to traffic" (Xinhua)

******* awesome monorail, perfect for a hilly city! Have all the stations on Line 3 from Yuanyang to Ertang and Line 1 from Shapingba to Chaotianmen been opened now?

I also have to say the English quality on signs is really good, comparable to Shanghai and Shenzhen and better than Beijing and Tianjin. Looking around Ditiezu for pictures, all the English translations were perfect, really surprising for a city like Chongqing. The use of monorail is awesome, and it seems like a very high quality system all-around.

I didn't realize the extension to Jiangbei Airport is already open. Sweet! The monorail construction process looks awesome, especially in such a super-urban setting; high monorails passing right by buildings and with steep gradients, truly one-of-a-kind!

The extension to Jiangbei Airport is phase two of Line 3, phase one ends at Longtousi/Chongqing North Railway Stn. So yeah now you can ride to the airport from downtown using metro.
