Construction work has begun on the underground station of the rail transit line in South Hefei Station, China.

The project involves building transit platforms for Lines 1, 4 and 5.

Work on the line, built under South Hefei Station, is scheduled to take about eight months, according to cnanhui.org.

Lines 1 and 5 will share the same transit platforms, forming a T-shape with the transit platforms of Line 4, which are the deepest part of the underground station at a depth of 34.4m.

The other two lines are 26.8m below the ground.
