Shanghai Railway Station

Shanghai Railway Station (simplified Chinese: 上海火车站; traditional Chinese: 上海火車站; pinyin: Shànghǎi Huǒchē Zhàn) is one of the four major railway stations in Shanghai, China, the others being Shanghai South Railway Station, Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station and Shanghai West Railway Station.

The station is located on Moling Road, Zhabei District, to the North of the city centre. It is governed by Shanghai Railway Bureau and is one of the most important hubs of the railway network in China.

History and Development

Shanghai Railway Station is called “The New Railway Station” by locals since it replaced Shanghai North Railway Station (also known as “Old North Railway Station” by locals) as the city’s main train station in 1987. In the late 80′s, the old North Railway Station was inadequate to handle the increasing railway traffic in Shanghai. The government then decided to pull down the Shanghai East (freight) Railway Station and build a new railway station at the same place. On 28 December 1987, the North Railway Station was closed. At the same time, the new Shanghai Railway Station was built and started its operation.

In 2006, some railway lines of the station were moved to the reopened Shanghai South Railway Station, which lessened the increasing pressure of passenger traffic. In August 2006, a decision was made to renovate the aging station and its surrounding area. Many new ticket machines were installed to increase efficiency.

In June 2008, in order to co-operate with the opening of World Expo Shanghai 2010, Shanghai Government and Zhabei District carried out a new renovation called the “Shanghai Railway Station North Plaza Comprehensive Transportation Hub Project” with an total investment over 4.1 billion RMB.

On May 29, 2010, the renovation was completed. It expanded the north building from 1,000 square meters to 15,560 square meters, refurbished the south building and added a new designed wave-shaped roof over the platform.

Connections

Shanghai Railway Station primarily serves north-south and westward locations. It is the terminus of the main Beijing-Shanghai railway line. There are five overnight CRH trains from Shanghai to Beijing and two Z (non stop, deluxe) trains to Taiyuan and Xian every day. Most long-haul, non high-speed trains bound for Jiangsu Province, Anhui Province and the North (ie. destinations north of the Yangzi River) depart from Shanghai Railway Station. It also offers over 50 highspeed CRH trains to those areas every day.

It offers

  • T trains (special fast trains that only stop at main stations) to Dalian, Beijing, Urumqi, Nanjing, Yangzhou, Hangzhou, Xian, Lanzhou, Jinan, Tongling, Tianjin, Taizhou Ningbo and Hong Kong.
  • K trains (fast) to Guiyang, Changsha, Guangzhou, Kunming, Wuhan, Yinchuan, Xining, Nanchang, Zhanjiang, Fuzhou, Xiamen, Yichang, Chongqing, Fuyang, Shenyang, Shijiazhuang, Baotou, Qingdao, Tianjin, Taiyuan, Harbin, and Jilin.

In addition, a lot of pass-by trains from the north to the south of China also use Shanghai Railway Station as an intermediate stop.

Transportation

Shanghai Railway Station can be reached by taking Shanghai Metro Line 1, 3 or 4. Due to its excellent connection with the Shanghai street network, the station is also accessible by numerous bus lines and taxi. Taxis are not allowed to stop directly in front of the station, but at an underground taxi stop.

Shanghai Railway Station is located near the city center with convenient access to many other modes of transportation. Subway Lines 1, 3 and 4 pass this station, and many bus routes stop at the South Square or the North Square of the station. The South and North Squares are connected by a long tunnel to the east of the station. You can go through the tunnel to either of the two squares providing you with many local buses to destinations within the city of Shanghai.
