Bannan Line (TRTS)
The Taipei Metro Blue Line is a high-capacity rapid transit line comprises three lines: the Nangang Line, the Banqiao Line, and the Tucheng Line. The lines are divided at Ximen Station and Fuzhong Station, and offer through traffic to one another. When fully completed, it will have a total of 23 stations serving the Nangang, Xinyi, Daan, Zhonghsan, and Wanhua districts, as well as into the New Taipei districts of Banqiao and Tucheng.
The Banqiao and Nangang Lines are collectively called the Bannan Line. The entire line runs underground. The excavation of tunnels using the cut-and-cover method resulted in large scale detouring of road traffic. Because of that, the line runs beneath existing roads and totals 28.3 km (17.6 mi).

Famous quotes containing the word line:
“Theres something like a line of gold thread running through a mans words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself. Its another thing, though, to hold up that cloth for inspection.”
—John Gregory Brown (20th century)
