HISTORY

Changsha’s current metro network was first approved by the Chinese State Council in February 2009. The metro operators were then established two months later, and plans for the metro network up to 2015 were approved in July 2009. Works began on the first two lines shortly afterwards: Line 2 in late September 2009, followed by Line in late December 2010. Following approval of extended plans for the network through to 2018 by the central authorities, works got underway to build Lines 3 and 4, respectively — Line 3 at the very start of 2014, and Line 4 at the very end of 2014.
