Nuclear shelter in the Beijing subway
• The atomic shelter in Beijing Metro
As in most socialist countries, China is planning its underground infrastructure as a strategic dual-use facilities.
As in Moscow, many stations have a deep horizon bedding. He was chosen by chance - in the case of the subway attack must withstand the blows of any strength, down to the atomic weapon. Many stations installed security doors, which are steel plates.
They are trying not to stick out, and disguised as a general view of the walls. The most observant passengers see them, especially noticeable door at the junction of different rooms and tunnels.
In addition to the common spaces, which are used for passengers in the subway there and closed tunnels, leading to additional rooms. To give at least some autonomy, each station is equipped with a supply of oxygen, calculated for three hours with a full load space. These officially given power in 2012, which called the subway safe place, in case of natural disasters outside.
It seems that not all employees know the underground, it is the door - to Chongvenmen station, for example, opening the door interferes with the recently laid electrically supplying the camera surveillance.
The researchers mysteries Beijing subway argue that in tunnels there are locked doors leading to hidden tunnels. Perhaps a special occasion in the Chinese government, there are special tunnels that have been built on the experience of the Moscow Metro-2 in their time Celestial actively adopts the experience of the Soviet Union in security matters.
