Location and station layout

The station is located beneath Third Huaxia Road, between Qingyi Road and the Huaxia Elevated Road.[1] Along Line 2, it is located between the Middle Chuangxin Road and Chuansha stations.[2] It takes about 20 minutes to ride the train to the Pudong International Airport station, the eastern terminus of the line, and about 70 minutes to the East Xujing station, the west end.[3] The station has three exits, numbered 1, 4, and 5. Exit 1 is branched northeast of the station, south of the Huaxia Elevated Road and east of Third Huaxia Road. Along the northwest side of the station is Exit 4 which is located west of Third Huaxia Road. Exit 5 is located south of Qingyi Road east of the station.[4]

History

By early March 2010, line 2 had been completed through the Guanglan Road station.[5][6] On April 8, the line was extended past the station through the Tangzhen, and Middle Chuangxin Road stations, through East Huaxia Road, as well as the Chuansha, Lingkong Road, Yuandong Avenue, and Haitiansan Road stations to the Pudong Airport station, which serves the Shanghai Pudong International Airport. This extension uses four-carriage trains as opposed to the eight-carriage trains used west of Guanglan Road, which serves as the transfer point.[7][8]
