Construction of the first subway that crosses the Yangtze River was completed in Wuhan, capital city of Hubei province, according to reports from Xinhua news agency on Feb. 26.

The subway line undergoing rail laying and internal decoration is expected to open to the traffic in 2012.

This 28-kilometers-long subway line, with 21 stations, was built with an investment of more than 14.9 billion yuan.

When the project is finished, it will undertake 50 percent of the cross river traffic of Wuhan. It is estimated that by 2015 this line will transport more than 600,000 passengers every day.
