Another four subway lines are expected to be put into operation on Sunday, December 28, 2014, in Beijing.

The four new lines are Subway Line 7 (from Beijing West Railway Station to Jiaohuachang Station), western section of the first phase of Subway Line 15 (from Wangjing Station to Tinghua East Road West Station), eastern section of Subway Line 14 (from Shangezhuang Station to Jintailu Station) and second phase of Subway Line 6 (from Caofang Station to Lucheng Station).

The new lines cover 48 stations, seven of them will be temporarily out of operation.

The total distance of the new lines is 62.2 kilometers, making the overall distance of the Beijing subway system 527 kilometers.

A total of 204 checkpoints are established along the new lines and 2800 security personnel will conduct security checks for both passengers and belongings at the same time.

This brings the number of subway stations in Beijing conducting security checks for both passengers and parcels to 50.

Meanwhile, four new police stations are established along the way to ensure the smooth transportation in the new subways.

Beijing is set to raise its fares on public transport on Sunday as well, doubling the current prices on average, but including some discount schemes.

The minimum price for a subway ride will be 3 yuan, which covers a ride of 6 km, compared with the current flat-fare of 2 yuan with unlimited transfers.
