Blue Line (Taipei Metro)

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 words line and/or blue:

    There’s something like a line of gold thread running through a man’s 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. It’s another thing, though, to hold up that cloth for inspection.
    John Gregory Brown (20th century)

    Mozart has the classic purity of light and the blue ocean; Beethoven the romantic grandeur which belongs to the storms of air and sea, and while the soul of Mozart seems to dwell on the ethereal peaks of Olympus, that of Beethoven climbs shuddering the storm-beaten sides of a Sinai. Blessed be they both! Each represents a moment of the ideal life, each does us good. Our love is due to both.
    Henri-Frédéric Amiel (1821–1881)
