Nanjing metro Line 4 opens

18 Jan 2017

CHINA: The first phase of Nanjing metro Line 4 opened on January 18, becoming the city’s seventh metro line. Construction had started in December 2011.

The 33·8 km east-west route links Xianlinhu with Longjiang. There are 18 stations, including interchanges with metro lines 1, 2 and 3. A western extension across the River Yangtze is planned.

Services are operated with a fleet of 29 six-car Type B trainsets supplied by CRRC Nanjing Puzhen Rail Transport Co under a 1·1bn yuan contract signed in 2013. Traction equipment was supplied by Alstom and its local joint venture Shanghai Alstom Transport Electrical Equipment Co. The trains are stabled at a depot near Huitonglu that is shared with Line 2.

  • Nanjing Metro is discouraging passengers from standing on the right and walking on the left of station escalators, saying that this causes excessive wear on one side of the escalator.
