Line 11 of the Beijing Subway (Chinese: 北京地铁11号线; pinyin: běijīng dìtiě shí yī háoxiàn) is a rapid transit rail line under planning in Beijing.

History[edit]

In 2006, Line 11 was originally designed as an L-shaped line from Wanliu to Dahongmen, which together with the L-shaped Line 10, form a subway ring route.[1] After Line 10 Phase II took over the entire ring route, Line 11 was displaced.

In January 2010, the government of Shijingshan District disclosed plans for a Line 11 in western Beijing that would traverse the Beijing Capital Steel complex and intersect with Lines 1 and 4.[2]

It will intersect with Line 16 at Hongliannanlu.[3]
