The Hohhot Metro Line 1 and Line 2 are expected to go into operation in the near future, according to the Hohhot Daily.
Construction work on the project began in 2016.
In 2018, Line 1 successfully got the green light from the relevant authorities with the line assessed as having a smooth track assembly, without the need for any adjustment to the route’s alignment or gradient.
This year construction work on the underground rail track and full line for electric wires was completed. Equipment installation and decoration entered the final stage and officially started trial operations on Sept 6.
Officials said 24 underground stations for Metro Line 2 have been completed so far. Currently, rail track is being installed on the line and 75 percent has been completed.
They said Line 2 is expected to go into trial operations in June 2020.
