Shanghai Metro Line 22 will connect Shanghai South Railway Station with Jinshan, home of the closest sandy beach to downtown Shanghai. Not that it will likely be beach-going weather when the line opens in late December, 2011.
UPDATE: the Jinshan Railway finally opened in September 2012!
The new line will have 9 stations, connecting with Line 1 and 3 at Shanghai Railway Station, and Line 1 and Line 5 at a new transport hub at Xinzhuang in Minghang District. The line then heads south into Songjiang and Jinshan Districts. The stations, from north to south:
- 上海南站 Shanghai South Railway Station (interchange with Line 1 and Line 3)
- 莘庄 Xinzhuang (interchange with Line 1 and Line 5)
- 春申 Chunshen
- 新桥 Xinqiao
- 闵西 Minxi
- 叶榭 Yexie
- 亭林 Tinglin
