Station overview[edit]

Luzhou Station Platform 2

This two-level, underground station is located at the intersection of Sanmin Road and Zhongzheng Road[2] and opened on November 3, 2010.[3][4] It is the busiest station on the Luzhou Line, handling over 19,000 passengers per day two weeks after opening,[5] and increasing to over 28,700 per day by the end of November 2010.[1]

Construction[edit]

Excavation depth for the station is around 24 meters. The station is 216 meters in length and 21 meters in width.[6] It has three entrances, one elevator for the disabled, and two vent shafts.[3]

Public Artwork[edit]

The theme for the station is "Dancing in the Wind", part of a common theme of egrets for the Luzhou Branch Line.[3] The main lobby features a dome skylight with a piece of public art resembling a dancing egret feather.[7] Natural light from above makes the feather art appear light and soft.
