Beijing Metro is less fashionable and high-tech than Shanghai and Guangzhou, and many southern Chinese cities' metros. (I don't know why- build by 1960s? still need to buy the paper ticket). But I like its character, a huge construction is under going everywhere on the metro for 2008 Olympic Games.

Beijing's metro displays Beijing's rustic side as a northern city. But it is simply cool because it is a kind of Northern rough style that shows the manly side in comparison with southern cities. It is like a strong northern man and a beauty from the south ;-)

Since Beijing metro was build constantly from 1960s, a lot of facilities need to be upgraded.

Beijing subway lines set for 2008 completions
(China Daily)
Updated: 2004-08-23 07:32


Three of Beijing's new subway lines will be completed before the opening of the 2008 Olympic Games, an official in charge of the project has revealed.

Construction has begun on four of the 24 stops on the No 4 subway line, according to the Beijing Urban Construction Group, the project's general contractor.

"It's the first time in the world that construction of three subway lines in a city was launched simultaneously," said Liu Hongtao, deputy general manager of the Beijing Municipal Rail Transport Construction and Management Company.

The north-south No 4 line, which will have a total length of 28 kilometres, begins at Majiapu on the southern Fourth Ring Road and ends at Longbei Village in northern Beijing.

In the meantime, workers have completed 44 per cent of the civil engineering work for the No 5 subway, said Liu.

The No 5 subway project, extending 27 kilometres, will start from Taipingzhuang on the northern outskirts of Beijing and end at Songjiazhuang in the south.

Construction has also started with eight of the 22 stops on the east-west No 10 subway, said Liu.

Beijing now has 95 kilometres of urban rail line in operation, of which subways account for 54 kilometres.

The city will have up to 300 kilome-tres of subway lines by 2008.

By then, subways will carry at least 20 per cent of passenger traffic in Beijing.

The new subway car looks a lot better than the older one.

For Beijing's Line 2, it was built under the torned Beijing Wall in 1960s, and the stations, where the names are mainly "XXmen", were the gates of the old Wall!

The Lamb logo reminds me of the "Little Fat Sheep" Restaurant around China, HK and in LA.

They seriously need a makeover for these old stations in Beijing so they can be on par with those of Guangzhou,Shanghai, or Nanjing(their stations are extremely nice btw)
