Yanfang Line of the Beijing Subway (Chinese: 北京地铁燕房线; pinyin: běijīng dìtiě yānfáng xiàn) is a rapid transit rail line in Beijing. It was opened on December 30, 2017.

History[edit]

Construction of the Yanfang Line was scheduled to commence in September 2011 and be completed by 2013.[1] On October 17, 2011, the Ministry of Environmental Protection declined to approve plans for the line citing lack of approval for the project from the National Development and Reform Commission and uncertain environmental impact of the line on the South–North Water Transfer Project which has a channel and reservoir in Fangshan County.[2][3] As a result, the onset of construction has been delayed to at least the end of 2013.[3]

As of February 2016, construction on Yanfang Line has started, and the line is scheduled to open before December 31, 2017.[4]

In January 2017, construction for the 6.1 km (3.8 mi) Yanfang Branch Line was approved. The line is scheduled to open no later than 2021.[5][6]
