Line 2 restrictions begin today

PASSENGER numbers will be limited at four stations on Metro Line 2 during rush hours on workdays beginning today to ensure the whole route runs smoothly, the Shanghai Metro Operation Management Center said yesterday.

The four stations are Zhangjiang High-Tech Park, Dongchang Road, Lujiazui and Jiangsu Road.

The management center will also temporarily limit passenger flow at seven stations on Line 2, depending on real-time conditions.

The seven stations are Guanglan Road, Jinke Road, Longyang Road, Century Avenue, Nanjing Road E., Jing'an Temple and Zhongshan Park.

A daily average of 1.3 million people use Line 2, which links the city's two airports.

Officials said an increasing number of passengers have been using Line 2, now the busiest line in the city due to its extension and the increase in tourists visiting the city for the World Expo.

Several stations on the route have been overcrowded during rush hours on workdays. The huge number of commuters has threatened passenger safety, officials said.

To ensure safety, the management center will enact the following restricting:

Zhangjiang High-Tech Park Station: From 8am to 9am on workdays, no entry to the station at No. 3 and No. 5 entrances. From 5:30pm to 7pm on workdays, exiting the station via No. 2 and No. 5 entrances will be prohibited from time to time, and passengers can't enter the station at No. 3 entrance.

Dongchang Road Station: From 7:30am to 8:30am and from 6pm to 7:30pm on workdays, the No. 2 and No. 4 entrances will be closed.

Lujiazui Station: From 4pm to close on workdays and from 2pm to close on holidays, no entry at No. 1 entrance.

Jiangsu Road Station: The No. 2 and No. 4 entrances will be closed from 7:30am to 9:30am and from 5:30pm to 7pm on workdays.
