The southern extension of Metro Line 5 will start operation at the end of 2018, Chinanews.com reported on Wednesday.

From August 20, passengers on the existing line are expected to wait longer in peak hours. There will be fewer trains due to the project construction, signal upgrading and hardware system adaptation.

The metro operators suggest passengers avoid the rush hours or take other forms of public transportation.

The total length of the Metro Line 5 extension is around 19.5 kilometers, including eight stations such as Jiangchuan Road, Xidu Station and Xiaotang Station. The extension will pass through Minhang and Fengxian districts.
