you cold do that, or exit at Exit C from Wangjing Station and walk along Hong Chang Road, turn right on Wang Jing Street and board bus 851 for the 798 Art Zone.

The bus stop for 798 Art Zone is on Jiu Xian Qiao North Road and is just east of the intersection of that road and Jiu Xian Qiao Road.

The whole system is a flat fare of 2 RMB. Flat fare throughout like New York or Moscow, no distance-based rip-offs London and Tokyo style.

Go here: http://explorebj.com/subway/. Enter the stations where you are starting and finishing your journey, and you will get travel time and fare amount.

2012.12.28 is this year's THE BIG DAY for Beijing metro openings. Line 6 will open from Caofang to Haidian Wuluju. Basically it's a cross-town line paralleling Line 1 but north of the Forbidden City.

Speaking of 2012.12.28, it appears that Line 10 will not close the loop all at once, and that there will be a missing piece from Shoujingmao to Xiju. It will look like someone took a little bite out of a bagel, the part where Fengtai railroad station will be.

2012.10.13 - Fengtaidongdajie station opened on Line 9

This is an infill station. Line 9 will be connected to the rest of the metro at the end of the year.

Hello!
About five weeks I took the following photos.
They show the construction site of the future Dongdaqiao station, part of the new Beijing Subway Line 6. The station is located west of Chaoyangmen station (transfer to Line 2) and east of Hujialou station (transfer to Line 10).















I am very much looking forward to the opening of Line 6, because the line will serve as a great reliever to the bursting Line 1 between Dongdan, Jianguomen, Yong'anli, Guomao and Dawanglu stations.

I assume you mean east of Chaoyangmen and west of Hujialou?

Beijing will build 660km metro network

Beijing to invest $16 billion in subways

By Han Lei (chinadaily.com.cn)

Updated: 2012-11-10

Beijing will invest 100 billion yuan ($16 billion) in the coming years to expand its subway lines, Deputy Mayor Chen Gang said on the sidelines of the ongoing 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China on Friday.

The subway expansion will make it possible for people to live farther from their jobs, helping optimize the city’s layout and relocate downtown residents, Chen said.

"It will also aid our efforts to cut car emissions and improve the environment."

The capital's subway system, which already cost 260 billion yuan will gain another 70 km of rail by year-end, bringing the total to 442 km.

Chen said trains are the answer to traffic gridlock in metropolises such as Beijing, which now has more than 5 million vehicles, a number that continues to rise rapidly. To counter that, the city initiated a license plate lottery system that allows only 240,000 applicants to register a new vehicle a year.

The capital has also been steadily expanding and updating its bus fleet. By the end of 2011, Beijing had more than 28,343 buses carrying over 13.39 million person/trips a day.

To further improve bus efficiency, the city has designated bus-only lanes on certain roads.

These measures are showing results: 42 percent of commuters chose public transportation in 2011, and the percentage of people driving cars dropped for the first time.

City’s subway safe from gas, nuclear attack
Global Times | 2012-12-5 0:05:07
By Yin Yeping

Beijing's newly completed subway lines and stations can withstand a nuclear or poison gas attack, civil defense authorities said Tuesday.

Testing and inspection of the first phase of Subway Line 6, and the second phases of Lines 8, 9 and 10 are complete. The lines are expected to open on December 28, Beijing Civil Defense Bureau announced at a conference Tuesday.

The new subway lines have been designed to be used in the event of an emergency, for underground evacuation from one station to another, emergency shelter and storage for emergency supplies.

An engineer from the Engineering Design & Research Institute of the Second Artillery Corps, surnamed Hu, told the Global Times she helped design the civil defense infrastructure in the subway system.

For instance, the special gates that are installed in each tunnel, which separate a station and part of the tunnel, are designed to protect those who shelter inside when the city encounters a heavy storm, toxic gas, or even a nuclear attack, said Hu.

"The station has three hours of breathable air after the gates are closed, isolating the station from the outside world," said Hu, although she did not say how many people this oxygen supply could sustain.

The steel doors are installed in the tunnels and can separate each station.

"Although each gate weighs around 7 tons, it takes just three minutes for two adults to open or close it manually," she said.

"This new technical gate was introduced into subway construction projects since Subway Line 5 in 2007," said Hu, noting that compared to the previous gates, the new ones are easier to manipulate and maintain.

Another colleague of Hu, surnamed Liang, told the Global Times that each station does have an air filtration system in case of gas attack, and it will also keep air flowing into the station.

"People can actually shelter in the subway for more than three hours because of this system," said Liang.

The above-ground subway exits can also be sealed off in the event of an attack, said Liang, as there are also heavy doors concealed behind a temporary wall, which can easily be removed.

English tutor Zhao Zhenliang, who often commutes by subway, said this is the first time he has heard about this civil defense infrastructure.

"It sounds quite cool to me, but what's the use of hiding in the subway if there's a nuclear attack?" he said.

"But generally speaking, having more shelters in town is always better," he said, "it will make residents feel safer to some extent."

Cao Yanping, deputy director of the supervision office of the Beijing Municipal Civil Air-Raid Shelter, said at the conference Tuesday that it has been a difficult project to install all the new infrastructure.

"Some civil defense infrastructure in the Beijing Subway will be installed later after the subway lines are opened this year because of various reasons," he said, although he did not specify what these are.

The gates have been installed in other subway systems in China.

Jiang Hao, an engineer from the 4th Engineer Design & Research Institute of General Staff Department, said that the gates for civil defense have already been used in the subway in cities like Nanjing in Jiangsu Province and Shenyang in Liaoning Province.

"The new facilities also have other defensive capabilities like emergency communication equipment at each station, which makes effective communication possible during a conflict," Jiang said at the conference.

Although subway systems in China have not been subject to terrorist attack or other emergencies, subways in other countries have been attacked.

In Tokyo in 1995, an attack by the Japanese Aum Shinrikyo cult killed 13 and sickened 6,300, after the highly toxic sarin nerve gas was released into the subway at rush hour, reported the Japan Times in 2010.

On July 7, 2005, terrorists set off bombs on three London underground lines and one on a public bus, killing 52 and injuring over 700 commuters, according to the BBC in July, 2005.

Beijing's Line 10 to stop operations on Dec 8
Updated: 2012-12-03 16:33
By Zheng Xin (chinadaily.com.cn)

Beijing's subway Line 10 will stop operations on Dec 8 for a test run of its new stations, subway authorities said on Sunday.

The first phase of Line 10, from Bagou station in West Beijing to Jinsong Station in East Beijing, started operations in July 2008.

The second phase, from Jinsong station to Bagou station, will help to complete the line and make it another circle line in Beijing.

The second phase of the line is currently going through signal system test runs, and is expected to start operations at the end of the year, according to Beijing Subway, the State-owned company in charge of the capital city's metro system.

Line 10's service time will also be shortened by three hours on Dec 5, with the time of the final train brought forward by three hours, the company said.

The capital will boost its transport capacity on Dec 5 and Dec 8 to meet the increased demand. A total of 47 key bus lines that share partial routes with Line 10 will extend their evening rush hour operations, and will shorten departure intervals.

Beijing Subway Line 10: “If you like it then you should have put a ring round it”
December 9th, 2012

This week we’re previewing the new lines expected to open in Shanghai and Beijing in December 2012. Today, Beijing Line 10!

Beijing Subway Line 10 is an impressive engineering feat. By late 2013 it will form an outer ring around Beijing, with 45 stations including 24 interchange stations! The total track length of 57km will make it the longest circular metro line in the world by our calculations, beating out the circular part of Seoul’s Metro Line 2.

Roughly half the line (the north and east parts of the loop) has been running since 2008, and in December 2012 it’s expected that most of the rest of the loop will open, save for a break in the circle in the south west corner, where Niwa and Fengtai Railway Station will open later in 2013. Jiaomen East station is also expected to be delayed. That means Line 10 will look something like this by the end of the year (click to enlarge):
