Public opinion sought on Jiading-Minhang line
The Jiading-Minhang urban rail line is seeking public opinion on its environmental impact assessment (EIA) report until April 26.
The 41-kilometer line will be built in Jiading and Minhang districts to provide a fast link between Jiading New Town, the Hongqiao transport hub and Minhang.
A feasibility study and EIA report, implemented by China Railway Shanghai Design Institute Group Co, don't include the Hongqiao station on the rail line.
Including Hongqiao station, the line will have seven stations in Jiading and eight in Minhang.
It will be interchangeable with Metro Line 11 at the North Jiading and Nanxiang stations, with Line 14 at Jinyuan Road (No. 5) station, with Line 13 at Jinyun Road station, with Line 9 at Qibao station, with Line 12 at Qixin Road station and with Line 5 at Yindu Road station, according to the EIA report.
The Jinyuan Road (No. 5) station is marked as Lexiu Road station on the current diagram of Line 14 which is under construction and expected to open by the end of this year.
It will also be interchangeable with Metro Line 25 at Huxing Road in Minhang in the future. This Metro line was planned for the period from 2017 to 2035, but its location has yet to be announced.
According to earlier plans, construction of the rail line will take six years and cost US$5.7 billion.
Including it, nine Metro and urban rail lines have been planned for the city from 2018 to 2023.
