Metro line 4 undergoes a test run

Beijing's new subway line four, which connects the north and the south of the city, carried out a test run on Sunday.


The over 28 kilometer long new line covers 24 stations and intersects with Beijing South Railway Station and subway line two and line one. The whole trip takes 48 minutes with an average travel speed of 80 kilometers per hour.


The metro employs state of the art technology to absorb vibration and noise as it runs close to many residential and historical areas in the capital.


Another distinguishing feature of the new line is each of its stations are designed with their own characteristics.


The test runs will last until June 20 and the metro is expected to open to the public in September.
