  On March 20th, it was learned from the Municipal Major Project Office and Beijing Investment Rail Company that the Beijing Metro Line 12, which will be opened for operation this year, has completed the motor train debugging, realized the rail communication, electricity communication, signal communication and successfully completed the cold sliding and hot sliding tests of the whole line. 42 metro vehicles on Line 12 have all arrived at the section, and will be put into no-load trial operation for no less than 3 months.

  Metro Line 12 is a rail transit trunk line mainly laid along the east-west direction of the North Third Ring Road, with a total length of about 30 kilometers and 21 stations. It spans four administrative districts, namely Haidian, Xicheng, Dongcheng and Chaoyang, and connects residential areas, commercial areas and important functional areas such as Century City, Shuangyushu, Dazhong Temple, Beitaipingzhuang, Madian, Anzhen, Sanyuanqiao, Jiuxianqiao and Dongba.

  "This year, Line 12 will open the Sijiqing Station to the dongfeng station section, with a total of 20 stations, 13 of which are transfer stations." Han Jian, the first-level director of Track III of the Municipal Major Project Office, introduced. After completion and opening to traffic, Line 12 will transfer to Line 10 at Changchun Bridge Station and Sanyuanqiao Station, Line 16 at Suzhou Bridge Station, Line 4 at Renmin University Station, Line 13 at Dazhongsi Station and Guangximen Station, changping line at Jimenqiao Station, Line 19 at Beitaipingzhuang Station, Line 8 at Anhuaqiao Station, Line 5 at Heping Xiqiao Station, and West. In the future, you will transfer to Line 14 at Gaojiayuan Station and Line 3 in dongfeng station.

  After the line is opened to traffic, it will effectively alleviate the ground traffic pressure in the northern part of the city, especially in the North Third Ring Road, and at the same time play a leading role in the track to drive the development and construction of the surrounding areas of the line.

  Beijing Metro Line 12 is known as the "underground North Third Ring Road", which passes through all the important traffic nodes of the North Third Ring Road, with more than 70 large and small bridges along the line, and most of the stations are located in the bridge area, which can be described as "one bridge and one station". In order to enhance the passengers’ experience, all the entrances and exits of the bridge station should fully consider the travel needs and habits of the surrounding passengers, and be arranged as close as possible to the bus station or existing municipal facilities to create convenient conditions for underground and above-ground traffic.

  Fully automatic unmanned driving is initially realized.

  On March 20th, at Sanyuanqiao Station of Metro Line 12, one train after another sped by. This is a no-load test run. During this period, subway vehicles, power supply, signal and communication systems will be fully tested and calibrated, and people and equipment, systems and systems will be fully run-in. After no-load trial operation, trial operation according to the drawing, completion acceptance and operation evaluation, the line can be opened for operation.

  In the future, Sanyuanqiao Station will become a three-line interchange station for Line 10, Line 12 and Airport Line. During the ride experience, I saw that the whole train on Line 12 was in yellow-gray tone, and the seats in the car were mixed with lemon yellow and light blue. The interior decoration was simple and generous, and the cab was designed with semi-closed transparent glass windows.

  "Metro Line 12 has initially realized the fully automatic driverless function, and the fully automatic debugging of all trains and stations is being carried out in an orderly manner, which will bring passengers a safer and more comfortable travel experience after operation. In addition, the mixed running mode of 4-group and 8-group trains provides 1240 seats for 180 seats and 2480 seats for 360 seats respectively, which can flexibly cope with the passenger flow changes in peak and flat peaks and ensure the maximum transportation efficiency. " Li Shaojun, assistant to the general department of Beijing Investment Equipment Technology Research Institute and project director of Line 12, revealed.

  From Sanyuanqiao Station, pass through Xibahe Station, Guangximen Station, Heping Xiqiao Station and Anzhen Bridge Station, and you will arrive at Anhuaqiao Station. The station is located in the bustling North Third Ring Road, which is the interchange station between Line 8 and Line 12. It will only take 3 minutes in the future, and citizens can complete the interchange at this station.

  At present, the staff of Anhuaqiao Station are carrying out the construction of the aluminum plate on the top of the transfer passage and transfer hall, the floor tiles of the safety exit are being paved and laid, and the entrance and exit passages are also being renovated. In the decoration of the station, Anhuaqiao Station is simple and elegant, refining the texture of the North Third Ring Road city and integrating the sky image, bringing visual enjoyment to passengers through the change of reality and space shaping. At present, 99% of the main structure of the station has been renovated, and 60% of the auxiliary decoration has been completed. (Ren Shan)
