Work on 3 Metro lines begins

WORK is under way on a new round of Metro construction that will see three new lines created and another extended, the subway authority announced yesterday.

By 2014, the city should have 14 lines with a network of more than 500 kilometers of track, said Shanghai Shentong Metro Group.

Among the projects under construction are Metro Line 12, Line 13 and Line 16. To date, there is no Line 14 or 15.

Line 12, linking the northeast of the city to the southwest, will have 32 stations along 40 kilometers, passing through eight districts. Passengers will be able to transfer to Line 1 and 13 at Hanzhong Road Station, to Line 2 and 13 at Nanjing Road W. Station and to Line 1 and 10 at Shaanxi Road S. Station.

Line 13 will include 14 stations, with 16 kilometers of track stretching from suburban Jiading District to downtown Jing'an District. Three stops on Line 13 were in operation during the World Expo last year. The full line is expected to include this section, and extend to Pudong New Area, said the authority.

Line 16, which will have 13 stations, will mainly operate in Pudong's Nanhui area. It will connect to Line 2 and 7 at Longyang Road and end at Lingang New City.

In addition to the three new lines, the authority is extending Line 11. Its 21-kilometer second phase stretches from Jiangsu Road Station, crossing the Huangpu River and linking to Pudong's Luoshan Road Station.

The extension, which includes 13 stops, will ease pressure on Line 2 to Pudong, said officials. Passengers can transit to Line 6 and 8 at Pudong's Jiyang Road Station.
