The Big Orange Snake: Shanghai Metro Line 7 sneak preview

Shanghai Metro 7 will begin trial operation on 5th December. Initially, trains will run between 9am and 4pm, with the operation times increasing over time. Line 7 is a north-south line, from Shanghai University to Huamu Road. Snaking its way through Shanghai’s centre, it adds many new interchange opportunities, including at Jing’an Temple with line 2 and Changshu Road with line 1, before crossing the river into Pudong and intersecting with Longyang Road (for the Maglev).

We’re busy preparing for the launch of the new line. See below for a sneak preview of the new map!
