The tunnel boring machine completed digging of the tunnel under West Lake Building Gourmet City on the right line of Changsha's Subway Line 5 on May 8, 2018 after a 14-day intensive work period. Construction on the 867-meter-long section between Manlanshan Station in the south and Yuehu Lake Park North Station in the north is the greatest challenge because of the complicated geological conditions and urban environment. Workers had to be very careful so as not to affect various utilities above, below and beside the line section. The first phase of the line will be dug through within the year and it is expected to begin trial operation in 2020. [Photo from Hunan Daily/Translated by Zhang Junmian]
