Xiamen Subway Line 2 is scheduled to open to traffic on Dec 25, according to a statement by the Xiamen Rail Transit Group on Dec 19.
The local government said that a collapse on Dec 12 on Lyucuo Road, where a Line 2 subway station was under construction, did not affect functioning metro lines but did cause major traffic congestion on roads near the collapse site. It went on to say that Subway Line 2 will open on schedule.
Construction on the subway line started in 2014 and passed its final inspection on Nov 6. The 41.64-kilometer line runs from Wuyuan Bay in Huli district to Tianzhu Mountain in Haicang district and consists of 32 stops.
According to the local government, residents will be able to take Subway Line 2 for free on Dec 25 from 8:00 to 22:00 as part of an experiential activity.
