Metro Line 12 to open soon
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
December 3, 2015



THE western extension to Metro Line 12 will go into service by the end of the month.

The extension features 16 stations, and the whole line now connects with every other on the network, except 5 and 16.

The system operator said the service will help to ease the pressure on lines 1 and 9 during peak hours.

To make the line even more appealing to passengers, all station platforms on the new extension have been fitted with air purifiers, the company said.

I strongly expect Longhua Zhonglu and Longhua stations to be confused with each other. IIRC the former was initially named Chuanchang Lu, but it got renamed due to a change in the plans above ground.

No worse than Shanghai Stadium and Shanghai Indoor Stadium.

The Shanghai one is wrong - it shows the southern extension of Line 5 that's nowhere near close to open.

Perhaps the artist chose to include expansions in every system to prolong how "updated" the sketch will be

Well then Line 13 and 12 extensions should be there. They will be opening in less than a month from now. But they are not.

Wow! I need to update my Dairon metro map now, since it's based off Shanghai! I have renamed several stations there. A station has been renamed in real life Shanghai too: What was Lupu Daqiao during Expo 2010 is now Shibohui Bowuguan (Expo Museum).

Two new lines (line 12 and 13) opened right outside my apartment building in Shanghai yesterday. I now have 4 subway lines (1,10,12 and 13) all within a block of my place. Not many people seem to care in my social media circles, but I though you guys would appreciate it.

Is there any status update when the Line 12 and Line 13 Stations at Nanjing West Road will be opened?

I believe they are open, but the transfer corridors between them and to line 2 aren't open yet, so technically there are three separate stations named Nanjing Xilu.

Wikipedia lists it at 588 km, but that counts line 11 to Disneyland which is not yet operative. My data, which always misses some length, puts it at 575 km, pending revisions.

Mind boggling as usual. Any other openings before the end of the year?

Lines 12 and 13, their new extensions lie right down the dense and high-rise cluster, so it was difficult to build.
