This week we’re previewing the new lines expected to open in Shanghai and Beijing in December 2012. Today, Shanghai Metro Line 13.
Remember during Expo 2012 a short segment of Line 13 was used to shuttle visitors to the Expo Park? Well, Line 13 is back, but unfortunately not the part in central Shanghai. The 8km-long phase 1 of Line 13 will head west from Jinshajiang Road station on Line 3/4. It will follow the path of Jinshajiang Road past the outer ring road to Huajiang Road. Here’s a view from Huajiang Road looking east back towards central Shanghai. Line 13 runs roughly parallel to and north of Line 2.
By 2015 Line 13 will be further extended into the center, but here’s what the line is expected to look like by the end of 2012:
Finally, here’s a sneak peek inside Fengzhuang station courtesy of the Metrofans BBS.

When will the portion of Jinshajiang eastwards be completed?
And when will the new museum and metro stop in Jing’an be open? Really curious about that one
My guess is as good as yours, but I would predict Jinshajiang Road to Changshou Road by 2013 and the remainder of the line in 2014.
Seriously though, what good is this little stretch of line 13 gonna do for us?
I just can’t wait til they finish 12 and 13 in the inner ring.
