Metro Line 22 to bring Jinshan closer

A new Metro service, Line 22, is due to be operational in November, connecting downtown Xuhui District with southern Jinshan District with fast trains traveling as 160 kph, its builder told Shanghai Daily today.

Shanghai Mechanized Construction Co, one of the project contractors, said a main underpass across Metro Line 22 has been completed. Dozens of such underpasses will be constructed along the route to ensure surface traffic go uninterrupted.

The 56.4-kilometer Metro Line 22 will run on ground level from the South Railway Station, a transit hub also for Metro Line 1, Line 3 and many buses, across Minhang and Songjiang districts, to its terminal in Jinshan New Town in Jinshan District bordering Zhejiang Province.

Metro Line 22 will make use of the existing single-track Jinshan railway, an underused cargo rail. Constructors will revamp the cargo rail and lay a paralleled new track.
