Line 16 is considered a backbone line for China’s capital city, running from north to south and serving commuters in key areas including Lize financial business district, Beijing Fengtai railway station and Zhongguancun Fengtai science park.

The new 14.2-kilometre southern section takes MTR’s mainland China operational network to over 300km in length.

It has a total of 10 stops running from Bei’anhe to Yushuzhuang Station, and connects to the phase I northern and phase II middle sections.

Adi Lau, Managing Director – Mainland China Business and Global Operations Standards of MTR Corporation, said:

“With Phase III of Line 16 commencing service, the total operational length of our network in the Mainland of China now exceeds 300 kilometres which marks a milestone in the development of the corporation.

“Beijing was the city where the corporation launched railway services in the mainland of China for the first time.

“We're very honoured to continue working with our partners and provide safe, convenient and low-carbon journeys to more citizens in Beijing.”
