YICHANG | Metro

Yichang Metro is a rapid transit system planned in Yichang, in Central China's Hubei province.

Line 1 is a line from Yiling Bus Terminal in Yiling District via Xiling District to Gongsheng in Wujiagang District.

Line 2 is a line from Gongtong Road(E) in Wujiagang District via Yichang East Railway Station, Yichang Sanxia Airport, Xiaoting District to Baiyang.

Line 3 is a line from Yiling Bus Terminal in Yiling District and transfer Line 1 at Yiling Square in Xiling District to Yichang South Railway Station in Dianjun District.

Yichang recently opened a BRT pretty much following the route of Metro Line 1. So I highly doubt Line 1 will get built. In all fairness the BRT an IDTP designed one. IDTP is the one that designed the epic BRT in Guangzhou.

I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a metro based on the existence of a BRT. Metro and bus don't exclude each other, tram and bus do. In fact there is a tram line in Dalian that is getting a metro just below its entire lenght.

It pretty much does. The BRT is equpidded with passing lanes to accommodate numerous stopping patterns serving local, commuter, express and crosstown markets. The BRT follows exactly where Line 1 runs. These two factors along with Yichang being not a very big city by Chinese standards will make a BRT Metro combo directly cannibalize each others ridership. Dalian on the other hand, the tram serves a different corridor than the subway in the downtown areas. In the places where they do overlap the tram is strictly a local service with express and commuter markets being served by a subway. Also, Dalian is a much bigger city (at least twice as big) so the extra capacity is needed. It's probably safe to say that Line 1 is dead.

Was Line 1 critical for the whole project, or will it continue as planned with lines 2 and 3?

No, all the other lines will continue planning work. My guess is Line 3 is the next priority.

If there is an BRT running along the same route as the metro line, it's likely that the BRT will be replaced by the metro once it is built. Not sure why would they build an BRT at the same time the metro line is being planned.

BTW, this thread should be renamed to Public Transport since we are talking about the BRT as well.

Metro takes to long to build. If you are a "small" Tier III or IV Chinese city it is most likely not worth it right now. In the far future possibly.
