CHINA: The first section of Harbin metro Line 3 opened on January 26. The 5·3 km route runs from Yidaeryuan on Line 1 to Changxianglu via Harbin West railway station, serving five stations. Construction of the underground southwestern section started in 2014 as the first phase of what will eventually be a 37·6 km circular route with 32 stations. The southeastern section is due to open in 2020 and the northern part two years later.
Services are provided with a fleet of six-car Type B type trainsets supplied by CRRC Changchun that draw power from a 1·5 kV DC overhead supply.
Line 3 is the second metro line in Harbin. Line 1 opened in September 2013 and Line 2 is under construction between Harbin North railway station to Jinshanlu. Interchanges will be provided at Zhaolin Park and Honqi with Line 3, and at Museum with Line 1. Opening is scheduled in 2020. Two further metro lines are scheduled to open after 2025.
... and this one comes with the added injury I wasn't aware of it as it doesn't add new sections, and Harbin won't be opening any new lines or extensions until 2019, when the 3rd phase of line 1 is expected to open. Yes, 3rd phase despite the current line 1 was opened at once, the 1st phase actually was only to Yi-da Eryuan and the rest to Ha-nan Zhan was the 2nd phase, however it was completed at the same time as the 1st. Anyway, the one I won't miss is Gaozeng on Guangzhou's line 3.Too much bashing Chengdu and Dalian has made me to overlook other cities.
