Metro Line 7 to open this year
It was unveiled on August 29 that Metro Line 7 will open to traffic later this year.
The first phase of Metro Line 7, with a total length of 30.85 kilometers, starts from the Garden Expo North Station and ends at the Yezhihu Station. It will pass through Dongxihu, Qiaokou, Jianghan, Jiang'an, Wuchang and Hongshan districts. There are a total of 19 stations, including three transfer stations already in operation: Garden Expo North Station ( Line 6), Wuhan Business District Station ( Line 3) and Xianggang Road Station (Line 3). Four newly-built transfer stations are Sanyang Road Station, Pangxiejia Station, Wuchang Railway Station and Hubei University of Technology Station. The symbolic color of Line 7 is phoenix orange.
Our reporter recently visited five themed stations on the line.
Designed as a "bright galaxy," the dome of Wuhan Business District Station features seven shades of blue from top to bottom. The art walls in Xianggang Road Station fully demonstrate a vivid and natural Chinese ink-painting artistic conception. The art walls in Wangjiadun East Station reproduce the historical appearance of Wangjiadun airport using the techniques of traditional Chinese painting. Garden Expo North Station integrates the color and modeling elements related to gardens and parks. The art walls in Garden Expo Station present the whole construction process of Garden Expo Park and at the same time integrate artfully the elements of the Phoenix of the Chu State.
