If you thought that the Metro Line 2 is not too useful for your daily commute, you might be excited. Line 1 officially began construction on September 28, at a special ground-breaking ceremony held at the construction site near the Hongfu Road stop, which will be a transfer point for Lines 2 and 1. What makes Line 1 significant is that it will connect both Guangzhou’s Metro in the north and Shenzhen’s Metro in the south. The line will start at the Wanghong Stop in Wangniudun Town, going through Hongmei, Daojiao, Wanjiang, Dongcheng, Nancheng, Songshan Lake, Dalang and ending in Huangjiang Town. It is planned to open by 2022.
