Jinyunshan Tunnel of Chongqing Metro Line 1 launched
On August 8, Jinyunshan Tunnel, Jianbi Section of Line 1, opened
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- On Tuesday, the Jinyunshan Tunnel in Jianbi Section of Line 1 was opened, laying a solid foundation for the construction of quick rail lines between the urban area and Bishan.
Jianbi section of Line 1 starts from Jiandingpo and ends at Bishan Station via Jinyun Mountain, with an overall length of 5.6 kilometers and total investment of 2.587 billion yuan. One station and one maintenance depot were launched to connect with Line 1, linking Bishan and the urban area, Jiefangbei. Being 3.7 kilometers long, Jinyunshan Tunnel's complicated geography results in a higher construction risk. However it's one of the most crucial parts of the Jianbi Section.
After the line's operation, it only takes five minutes to get from Bishan District to College Station and nearly thirty minutes from Bishan to the business district of urban Shapingba. (Translated by Shi Yali, Fathom Language Limited)
