Works on Subway Line 9 are progressing at a steady rate. After digging a hole underneath Yuyuantan Lake, we’re seeing the end of that bit of work.
As Line 9 connects to Line 1 at the Military Museum Subway Station, they’ll be building an interchange passageway at that station. This means that Exit A at this stop will be out of use until 28 September 2012 — a clear sign that Line 9 will be ready for autumn 2012.
This might be a bit of a problem if you wanted to get to the Chinese Millennium Monument or the old CCTV Tower, but you can “cheat” by using Exit B, placed on the same side of the road.
Line 9 opens at the end of the year for those travelling between the Guogongzhuang terminus and the Beijing West Railway Station. The whole of Line 9 is expected to open before October 2012.
