Line 5 (simplified Chinese: 五号线; traditional Chinese: 五號線; pinyin: Wǔhào Xiàn; Jyutping: Ng5 Hou6 Sin3), of the Shenzhen Metro runs West–East from Qianhaiwan to Huangbeiling forming an arc around central Shenzhen. It opened on 22 June 2011. Average daily ridership exceeds 500,000 people[1], with 852,000 passengers using the line on 21 July 2017, setting a new record.[2] In long term the line is expected to carry over 1 million passengers per day.[3]

History[edit]

In 2004, Line 5 was envisioned to be an orbital express commuter railway using an upgraded Pinghu–Nanshan railway. In 2006 the line was redesigned to a subway with more frequent stops but still was an orbital route roughly following the Pingnan railway.[4] In July 2007, the line was approved with an expected budget of 19.2 billion RMB. The line would be 42.391 km long, of which 3.62 km is elevated with 29 stations.[5] The number of stations was reduced from 29 to 26 when the line was cut back from Grand Theater to Huangbeiling due to Grand Theater being an planned to be an interchange between three other lines, making construction difficult. Construction of Line 5 started on December 21, 2007 with an additional station, Shangshuijing, added to the design.[6][7] June 22, 2011, Line 5 officially opened between Qianhaiwan and Huangbeiling.[8] On April 6, 2015, a 7.7 km and 7 station, southern extension towards Chiwan Station broke ground.[9]
