It is a 22km trip, should be around 40min and would cost around CNY50. If you travel at night time or meet bad traffic time, it would be higher.

Metro from Chongqing West
Hi, I am trying to understand if I can catch a metro train from Chongqing West to the City. The following is mentioned above:
"Arrival by metro: line 5 and ring line
The phase two of metro line 5 is under construction and will open in the near future by when West Station can be easily reached by subway. The metro line 5 is on -2F."
Does this mean the metro connection to/from Chongqing West is still being constructed or that it is now available?
Thanks for your help :)
