The second environmental impact assessment (EIA) report of Beijing Subway Line 28 (formerly called the CBD Line) was made public on Aug. 20, clearing the way for construction to begin by year-end.

According to the report, there will be nine stations along the line, and the total length will be increased from 8.77 km to 8.877 km. It is due for completion by the end of December 2022. 

The line's direction, length, number of stations, construction scale and track laying method included in the report are consistent with what was planned for the CBD Line.

The EIA report reveals Line 28 will be developed in several phases, and the upcoming construction will stretch from Dongdaqiao to Guangqu East Road. 

It will start from Dongdaqiao Station on the existing East-West Line 6 in the west, passing through Chaoyangmenwai Street, Zhenzhi Road, Jianguo Road, Maoxing West Road to end at Guangqu Road, to which the Baiziwan area is connected. 

According to the report, Guangqu Road Station is a newly established stop, replacing the planned "Baiziwan Station" in the first EIA report. 

The report also reveals a long-term plan for Line 28, which will extend from Dongzhimen to Guangqu East Road in the future, and have a total length of 11.97 km with 11 stations. It will be able to connect key residential areas and functional areas, such as Sanlitun, Dongsihuan, CBD and Baiziwan, as well as transport hubs and interchanges, such as the Workers' Stadium, Dongzhimen, Dongdaqiao, and Beijing East Railway Station, and hence resolve the shortage of rail transits on the eastern side of the city's central area.
