New express Metro line

A Metro line linking Shanghai’s airports in Pudong and Hongqiao will be completed in 2024.

It will shorten travel between the two airports to under 40 minutes, from the current 90-plus minutes.

A senior official said construction is ahead of schedule, despite the pandemic.

The 68.66-kilometer express line will have nine stations across Xuhui and Minhang districts as well as the Pudong New Area, with three main parts – Puxi, Pudong and the cross-river sections.

Construction began in 2019 and the line is one of China’s first batch of 11 demonstration city railways.
