Route[edit]

The precise route of Line 14 has been revised several times even after construction began.

The line is designed to follow an inverted-L shaped route running from the southwestern corner of urban Beijing in Fengtai District to the northeastern corner in Chaoyang District. Currently, the West section and East section of Line 14 are operated separately, while the Middle section is still under construction.

In the west section, Line 14 begins at Zhangguozhuang on Yuanboyuan South Road, west of the Yongding River. The line crosses the river to Zhangyi Village and enters the 5th Ring Road. Going due east on Fengtai South Road, Line 14 passes by the Fengtai Sports Center, enters the 4th Ring Road and continues eastward on Fengtai Road to Xiju on the Line 10 loop.

The Middle section, currently under construction, will continue on Lize Road inside the 3rd Ring Road and then meet Line 4 at the Beijing South Railway Station.

The East section, continue going further east from Beijing South railway station. It crosses Line 5 at Puhuangyu and follow the Pufang Road through the Fangzhuang residential neighborhood. It leaves the 3rd Ring Road at Shilihe and continue eastward until it abruptly turns north at Xidawang Road. Then it runs due north, between the eastern 3rd and 4th Ring Roads. After passing the Beijing University of Technology, the line crosses Line 7 at Jiulongshan and Line 1 at Dawanglu. Further north, the Xidawang Road turns into Jintai Road. The line crosses Line 6 at Jintailu. The line runs due north, through the Chaoyang Park. Upon leaving the 4th Ring Road, Line 14 enters the vast Wangjing neighborhood. The line bisects Wangjing from south to north on Guangshun South and North Streets and intersects with Line 15 at the heart of Wangjing. After leaving Wangjing, the line emerges north of the 5th Ring Road and terminates at Shangezhuang.[5]

Controversy[edit]

Western terminal[edit]

The proposed final routing of Line 14 headed through Zhangyi Village, near Marco Polo Bridge. However, residents of Dujiakan and nearby Wanpingcheng wanted the subway to be routed south and terminating in their neighborhoods instead. Wanpingcheng residents argued that the neighborhood's more than 60,000 residents as well as a sculpture park, a war memorial, Wanping Fortress and many other attractions need better public transport options. In addition roads going through Dujiakan are severely congested with traffic.[14] The terrain, rivers and railways going through the area have made it difficult to construct new roads to the surrounding areas. The end of 2008, residents gathered thousands of signatures.[15] Finally, the Planning Commission explained that building a subway to Wanpingcheng is more difficult, Line 14 will run via Zhangyi Village as originally planned.[16] Ultimately, Wanpingcheng will be served by Line 16 which started construction in 2013.

Northern terminal[edit]

By the end of 2009, Tiantongyuan and Wangjing residents disputed the proposed alignment of Line 14's northern portion. Tiantongyuan is a large residential area within Beijing's northern Changping District. Due poor external connections Tiantongyuan is extremely dependent on Beiyuan road and Subway Line 5. Both the road and the Metro line are extremely congested. The existing Line 5 only serves the west side of Tiantongyuan and is over capacity. The Tiantongyuan online community launched a petition to extend Line 14 into Tiantongyuan. Tiantongyuan and its periphery argue that with the new developments being built in the area, traffic demand will be large. The extension of Line 14 into the area will improve access and transport capacity. Wangjing residents opposed the proposal put forward by Tiantongyuan residents believing that the huge passenger flow from an extension to Tiantongyuan will overwhelm Line 14 which is already slated to serve their neighborhood. Wangjing is a large community with significant commercial areas close to Chaoyang District north east of the fourth ring road. Although numerous buses connect Wangjing with its vicinity and the city center, it is still suffering from traffic congestion. The existing Subway Line 13 Wangjing West Station is too far from the commercial center of the Wangjing, making access not convenient. Wangjing residents proposed Line 14 to terminate at Wangjing as originally planned.[17] The proposal by Tiantongyuan residents has been rejected by planning authorities. Instead authorities proposed to construct a new north south express subway line called Line 17 (formerly R2 line) through eastern Tiantongyuan to better serve the area. Construction of Line 17 began in 2015.
