South Shaanxi Road (simplified Chinese: 陕西南路; traditional Chinese: 陝西南路; pinyin: Shǎnxī Nán Lù) is the name of an interchange station between Lines 1, 10 and 12 of the Shanghai Metro. It is situated within the inner ring-road on the boundary between Huangpu District and Xuhui District.
The newest line that the station serves is Line 12 which opened on 19 December 2015. During the construction of Line 12, interchanging between lines 1 and 10 required exiting the station and crossing a road. Passengers using a Shanghai Public Transportation Card were not charged an extra fare as long as they re-entered the station within 30 minutes; those using single-ride tickets, however, had to purchase a new ticket.
The main shopping mall at the station is IAPM which is placed at the crossing between the three lines, so it has direct underground entrances from lines 10 and 12. These entrances don't have metro exit numbers, so they are additional to the 10 numbered exits.
The station got its name from the road along which line 12 is lying, South Shaanxi Road. This is the South portion of Shaanxi Road, which in turn got its name from Shaanxi Province.
