Wuhan’s Hankou North metro extension opens

Wuhan Metro’s Hankou North extension has opened to passengers.

The 5.7-kilometre line extends Metro Line 1 from its current terminus at Dijao to Hankou North.

Two additional stations have been built at Teng Kong and Shekou Town.

Line 1 was opened in two phases between 2004 and 2010. When phase 1 opened, Wuhan became the first Chinese metro to use CBTC technology.
