Look here! A new transfer passage added to Niujiaotuo Station
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Chongqing Rail Transit has reported that on May 15th, a new transfer passage was added to Niujiaotuo Station. It is now more convenient to transfer to Line 2 and Line 3 at Niujiaotuo Station.
The Niujiaotuo Station is at the core of the Shangqing Temple in Yuzhong District and serves as an interchange station for Lines 2 and 3. After the opening of Line 3 in October, 2011, the number of annual passengers increased considerably. During the morning and evening rush hours, the transfer passage connecting Lines 2 and 3 was especially crowded.
In order to reduce the congestion of the transfer passage, an expansion project was launched in Niujiaotuo to add a new transfer passage (on the side of the road). The two transfer passages are installed side by side.
The Chongqing Rail Transit reports that, after the transfer passage is put into use, the transfer modes of Lines 2 and 3 will be changed to one-way passage. Now the original transfer line is one-way transfer from Line 3 to Line 2 and the new transfer lane is one-way transfer from Line 2 to Line 3. The entrances and exits for No. 3 of Line 2 is also reused. (Translated by Shi Yali, Fathom Language Limited)
