Description

Shanghaixi railway station (Chinese: 上海西站; pinyin: Shànghǎi Xī zhàn) is a railway station in the Putuo District of Shanghai which in the past, lost its importance as a result of Shanghai railway station further to the east. It has, however, been recently redeveloped.

History

Built in 1905, the station was originally known as Jessfield Station, then Zhenru station until 1989. Destinations of departing trains included Yantai, Zaozhuang, Hengyang, Ganzhou (Jingang Mountain) and Chengdu, as well as a direct train from Shanghai to Zhangjiajie. The station lost importance as most trains stopped at Shanghai railway station instead to the east, and the station was closed down for renovation works on July 1, 2006, with the opening of the newly renovated Shanghai South railway station. As of 2010, the station has been re-opened. Now it only serves high-speed trains running between Shanghai and Nanjing, with a few ending at Suzhou, Wuxi, and Changzhou. Furthermore, a hub for 3 metro lines is under construction. An interchange station for Lines 11, 15, and 20 will be created. At present, Line 11 is operating and serves the station closest to Exit 1.
