The project is expected to be gradually completed by the end of 2025.

The tunnel sections to be constructed in the second phase of the project are Zhongshan Road Tunnel (including the ground road, formerly known as Wenwei Road) and Shengmo Road (including the bridge and tunnel co-construction area of Line 7). The tunnel is arranged in east-west direction, with a total length of 1235 meters.
