Two Tunnel Sections of Changsha Metro Line 6 Drilled Through
The left line of the tunnel section between Changfeng Station and Lugu Sports Park Station on the Hexi section of Changsha Metro Line 6 was drilled through on December 7. The right line of the tunnel section between Dalucun Station and Mumaduan Station on this metro line’s east section was drilled though the same day. This marked a great step forward in the construction of the metro line, and laid a foundation for its opening to traffic.
The Changsha Metro Line 6 is the longest with the most transfer stations and the largest span in Changsha’s metro network. It is also the only metro line connecting to the Changsha Huanghua International Airport’s terminal buildings.
There are a total of 34 stations along the line, with an average station spacing of 1.44 km. All of them are underground stations. The line is scheduled to be completed and opened in 2022.
