Metro Lines 1 and 2 of Dalian city are to open in the second half of 2014, according to the Fourth Urban Rail Transit Summit recently held in Dalian in northeast China's Liaoning province. The summit focuses on the development of rail transit systems in four major cities in northeast China, namely Dalian, Shenyang, Changchun and Harbin.

The State Council has attached importance to the development of urban rail transit systems this year and has approved plans of construction of rail transit systems in 34 cities. The overall length of urban rails across the nation is expected to reach 3,000 kilometers by 2015 and 6,000 kilometers by 2020.

Summit delegates also believe the metro will make it more comfortable for local citizens to take the subway due to the long winters in northeast China.

Dalian plans to construct nine metro lines with a total length of 262.9 kilometers. Line 1 and Line 2 are expected to be put into use in 2014.
