A train successfully completed is first trial along the entirety of the Jinhua-Yiwu-Dongyang urban rail line on June 14.
The train departed from Jinhua Station at 2 pm and arrived at Stadium Station in Dongyang at 3:11 pm, as scheduled.
The Jinhua-Yiwu-Dongyang line, the first rail transit project in Jinhua, started construction on July 28, 2017. With a total length of 107.17 kilometers and a total investment of 34.7 billion yuan ($5.18 billion), the line has 31 stations, making it the longest single municipal rail transit line in China.
The line operates at a speed of 120 kilometers per hour, and has a maximum one-way transport capacity of 60,000 people per hour.
The rail is composed of the Jinhua downtown-Yiwu section and the Yiwu-Dongyang (Hengdian) section. Passengers can transfer between the two lines at Qintang Station in Yiwu at the same platform.
The Jinhua downtown-Yiwu section of the urban rail system - Jinhua Station to Qintang Station - carried out free test rides on Jan 11.
The design of each station features cultural elements related to Jinhua. At Jinhua Station, the connecting passage is designed as a cultural corridor, and items with Jinhua characteristics such as the Wuzhou kiln and Jinhua ham can be seen on the wall.
