Shenzhen tackles crowding on the metro, will launch extra trains on the Luobao Line

Posted: 04/17/2013 7:00 am

Good news for people who regularly pile onto the metro in Shenzhen.

Trains will be added between Luohu and Xixiang metro stations on Shenzhen’s Luobao line to reduce overcrowding during morning and evening rush hours, The Daily Sunshine reports.

The new measure will be piloted on April 20 and, if all goes to plan, fully implemented on Thursday April 25.

The Luobao line is the oldest on Shenzhen’s metro system and runs from Luohu, the border with Hong Kong and the city’s busiest train station, to Airport East.
