Routine Checks to be Done in All Metro Stations
Security checks done at all Metro stations will be a routine procedure to ensure passengers’ safety during and after the Universiade games. During the games the checks will be tightened and all passengers bringing luggage will undergo security checks before being allowed to pass.
All of the 118 stations connected to the five Metro lines have x-ray machines installed to check for any explosives, liquids or metals brought into the city. The city will then train around 2,800 inspectors to be employed by the Metro stations.
Passengers are advised not to bring in gasoline cans, chemicals, explosives or lighters on the Metro. Items such as fruit and kitchen knives, scissors and hammers are also not allowed to be brought into the stations. Passengers are also ask to consume all types of beverages before going in the waiting halls since all type of liquids are also not allowed.
Passengers should not worry about being left by the train because of the security measures, since the trains will be leaving the stations in intervals. Restricted items will not be confiscated but passengers will be asked to take a different form of transportation. Commemorative items such as gift knives will be removed by the inspectors and will be kept temporarily until the owners return and claim the items from them.
