It’s that time of year again, when metro systems in China prepare to open new lines. We’re expecting two brand new lines to open in Shanghai in late December 2013: Line 12 and Line 16.
Today we’re previewing Line 16. Line 16 is entirely in Pudong, and currently connects Luoshan Road station, at the end of Line 11, with Dishui Lake, a man-made circular lake, near Lingang New City. The line also passes the Shanghai Wild Animal Park and the site of the future Pudong Railway Station. The line will also be extended to connect to Longyang Road (Line 2/7 and Maglev) in future. You’ll also be able to connect to Shanghai Disney Resort via Line 11 by 2015 at Luoshan Road.
Trains on Line 16 will run faster than regular metro stations due to having to cover a longer distance, and seats will face forwards/backwards, instead of sideways like on other lines.
The full list of stations is:
- Luoshan Road 罗山路
- East Zhoupu 周浦东
- Heshahangcheng 鹤沙航城
- East Hangtou 航头东
- Xinchang 新场
- Wild Animal Park 野生动物园
- Huinan 惠南
- East Huinan 惠南东
- Shuyuan 书院
- Lingang Avenue 临港大道
- Dishui Lake 滴水湖
