Historic train station to reopen in July

THE 105-year-old Shanghai West Railway Station will reopen in July to join the high-speed rail service connecting Shanghai and Nanjing, capital of Shanghai's neighboring Jiangsu Province.

A revamp is nearly complete on the station, doubling its space to 4,000 square meters and making it Shanghai's fourth-largest train station after Shanghai Railway Station, Shanghai South Railway Station and Hongqiao Railway Station, today's Shanghai Morning Post reported.

The station, in Zhenru area of Shanghai's west, will be accessible by buses and Metro Lines 11, 15 and 16, the newspaper said.

Some trains on the high-speed Shanghai-Nanjing line, due to open in July, will stop at the station.

The west station was first opened in 1905 and expanded in 1981. It has been closed to passenger trains since 2006.
