Line 2 of the Tianjin Metro (Chinese :天津地铁二号线; pinyin :Tiānjīn Dìtiě Èr Hào Xiàn) is a rapid transit line running from west to east Tianjin. Opened on 1 July 2012, [1] the line is 27.157 km long and has 20 stations. It is mostly underground; all stations, with the exception of surface-level station Caozhuang, are underground.


In May 2011, during construction, a section of tunnel west of Tianjin railway station was flooded with water from the Hai River and collapsed, trapping one of the TBMs. It was deemed too expensive to remove the trapped TBM, so a decision to abandon the TBM and dig a new tunnel around it was made. This delayed the original opening date from late 2011 to 2012. [2] After the line opened for trial operations on 1 July 2012, it operated in two separate sections until the affected section finished reconstruction and Jianguodao Station opened on 28 August 2013, finally reconnecting the two sections.

Line 5 (Beijing Subway) Railway line of Beijing Subway

Line 5 of the Beijing Subway is Beijing's only subway line with an entirely north-south route. It entered into operation on October 7, 2007. It runs for 27.6 km (17.1 mi) in a near straight line through the city center from Tiantongyuan North in Changping District to Songjiazhuang in Fengtai District. Though Line 4 and Line 8 also broadly follow north-south routes, Line 5 remains the only line to follow an almost entirely straight north-south course. Line 5 is also notable for including three stations in the densely populated northern suburb of Tiantongyuan, as well as providing convenient access to the Temple of Earth and Temple of Heaven. Since Line 5 connects with Line 1, Line 2 (twice), Line 6, Line 7, Line 10 (twice), Line 13, Line 14 and Line 15, and also links densely populated suburbs directly to the city center, it tends to experience very crowded conditions during rush hour and even very late into the evening. Line 5's color is   maroon.
