At least they are on different lines. How about Changshu Lu and Changshou Lu? They are on the same line with only two stations between them.

Mandarin is a very tonal language, so as a speaker myself, Changshu (familiar) Lu and Changshou (longevity) Lu...there's no mistaking it.

Even for me they are that different. While N and NG are often mixed up by native speakers themselves. If someone tells me to come to Han(g)zhong Lu, I'll get it quite hard.

Construction of the Metro Line 11 extension (shown on map above) to Shanghai Disneyland has been completed and testing is expected to start early next year, subway operator Shanghai Shentong Metro Group said yesterday. The final sections of the 12.3 kilometer route were put into place over the weekend, though development work is still ongoing at the three “Disney” stations, the company said. The new line starts at Luoshan Road and includes two stops — Kangqiao Road E. and Hengxin Road — on its way to the theme park. Both the extension and the tourist attraction are set to open next year. — Shen Xinyi

Pity that the station is not particular at all. Disneyland resort station in Hong Kong is one of the best in the world.
