Adjust font size:

A new subway line is to open in Beijing next Monday, three days ahead of the National Day of the People's Republic of China on Oct. 1, local authorities said Friday.

The No. 4 subway line, which runs south to north through the heart of the city, is 28.2 km long with 24 stations. It is expected to transport more than 400,000 passengers a day.

The subway project had passed inspections by local authorities in regard to construction, urban planning, quality supervision, fire prevention and environmental protection, and the new line would begin operating on Sept. 28, a spokesman with the Beijing Municipal Commission of Housing and Urban-rural Development said.

Currently, Beijing has eight subway lines covering 200 kilometers.
