Extended train for Chongqing Light Rail Line 2 to debut in Sept.
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The 6-carriage extended train for Chongqing Rail Transit Line 2 is under on-line debugging. The extended train will may begin to carry passengers along with the present existing 4-carriage trains in this September.
As the 1st railway rail transit line running in urban Chongqing central area, Line 2 boasts 27 trains with trains departing every 4 minutes in rush hours.
Last year, an interchange network was formed by the three rail transit lines after the operation of Line 1 and Line 3. The passengers volume of Line 2 surged, especially at Niujiaotuo transfer station. In addition, the construction of extended section from Xinshancun to Yudong in Ba'nan District also makes the carriage extension a must. (Translated by Huang Xiqin, Fathom Language Limited)
