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.

There was a Disneyland station design poll 2 years ago. Would be interested to see how it comes up when finished.

Subway services extended on eve of National Day holiday
Shanghai Daily
September 22, 2014

Metro lines 1 and 2 will stay open late on September 30, the day before the National Day holiday, to deal with a bigger number of anticipated travelers.

According to Shanghai Shentong Group, the city’s Metro operator, both lines 1 and 2 will stay open an additional 80 minutes on September 30. Eight extra trains will be in service on the lines with an interval of 20 minutes.

The last train from Line 1’s Xinzhuang Station will depart at 11:52pm instead of 10:32pm, while the last train in the opposite direction will leave Fujin Road Station at 11:50pm instead of 10:30pm.

Line 2 will see train operation extended along its section between Xujingdong and Guanglan Road stations. The last trains will leave both Guanglan Road and Xujingdong stations at 12:05am instead of the usual 10:45pm.

Meanwhile, 104 bus routes with stops within 100 meters of the affected Metro stations will also extend hours on September 30. The timetable for the last bus along some routes has been extended to as late as 1:20am. A detailed timetable can be found on www.shygc.net.

To be honest I think the early shut down used as a soft curfew to encourage everyone to get home and stay there.

I don't think so at all. The whole infrastructure usually closes at 22 - 23, hard to find a restaurant after 22 o'clock. Even in Shanghai. And keeping such a huge system running for some occassional passengers is costly. Taxis are a solution being so cheap.

Chinese citizens tend to go to bed quite early which I welcome. Talking or doing smth far into the night is actually harmful for health.
