What exactly does this mean? Will they change the alignment, and/or move the metro station?

They are removing short services (those ending at Shanghai Huoche Zhan), and thus all line 1 trains will run all the way to Fujin Lu.

Some impressions from West Nanjing Road station (Line 2, Line 12, Line 13). Recently Line 12 and Line 13 stations were opened, however, there is no underground walkway to connect Line 2, Line 12, and Line 13 stations.

Are there plans to fix this?

Recently? The three Nanjing Xilu stations have been there since the end of 2015, more than a year now. And I already watched the video eons ago, which includes extra footage from Hanzhong Lu (where direct transfer between lines 12 and 13 is avalaible) travelling from Nanjing Xilu L12 to Nanjing Xilu L13, and from Jing'an Si, Hongqiao Huoche Zhan and the Hongqiao Railway Station (n.b.: Pinyin name refers to the metro station, while the English one refers to the railway station) after leaving Nanjing Xilu L2.

Thank you for the input.
The pictures and video of West Nanjing Road was taken in early 2016.
I only had the chance to publish them here now (the video was published 2.5 weeks ago).

One thing I don't understand is why the Shanghai Metro insists on continuing to use the old style turnstile fare gates. No other city in China uses them, and they are such a pain, especially when travelling with luggage and/or small children.

Line 9 will most likely break 1 million average riders when its eastern extension opens at the end of this year.

Chongming’s Metro link coming soon
March 10, 2017
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



CONSTRUCTION will begin on the Metro line linking Chongming Island with the city by the end of the year, the island’s district authority said yesterday.

The line will run from Pudong’s Jinqiao area to Chongming’s Chenjia Town.

It has been approved by the city government and is awaiting approval by the National Development and Reform Commission, Chongming District director Tang Hailong said yesterday.

The district authorities will build and upgrade roads to connect with the new line.

The line will have four stops — on Fuxing Island and three in Chenjia Town.

The main transport link for residents is the Yangtze River tunnel. But the trip can often take hours due to congestion, especially on public holidays.

Those stats should be compelling enough for the local gov to speed up the construction of new lines within the inner ring road, many of them.

There are 2 more projects. Line 14 is U/C opening in 2020 and Line 19 will start construction next year. More to come.
