Shanghai Metro Line 9 Eastern Extension to open

We’re rounding out 2017 with a preview of the new lines expected to open in China before the end of the year. Typically new lines open in the last few days of December, and details about the exact timetables and station details are only announced on opening day.

Today we have a sneak preview of the Line 9 eastern extension in Shanghai. Line 9, which first opened in 2007, will be extended 9 stops deeper into Pudong from the current terminus at Middle Yanggao Road, terminating at Caolu. There is also a handy interchange with Line 12 at Jinhai Road.

Updates to our metro maps online, for Android and for iOS are rolling out by the end of the year.
