Goodbye Aerospace Museum, Hello Shendu Highway

The station at the southern terminus of Shanghai Metro Line 8 has been known as Aerospace Museum since it opened in 2009. There’s just one small problem: the museum of that name doesn’t actually exist yet.

Four years later, it’s unclear if the museum will be constructed at this site, and so the Shanghai Metro company has decided to fix this by renaming the station to Shendu Highway (沈杜公路). We’ve updated with the new station name, and the name will also be updated in the next updates to our iOS and Android apps.
