A 17-kilometre line running from the city centre to industrial areas in the south of the city opened on 20 September 2015. Service began on 9 November 2015 for the second line (west-east). The total length of both lines is 32 kilometres with 32 stations. Trains are expected to be able to reach maximum speeds of 70 km/h.
