Shanghai West Railway Station
is a railway station in the Putuo District
which in the past, lost its importance as a result of Shanghai Railway Station
to the east. However, it has been recently redeveloped.
Built in 1905, the station was known as Zhenru Station
until 1989. Destinations of departing trains included Yantai
(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 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 terminating at Changzhou
. Furthermore a hub for 3 metro lines is under construction. An interchange station for the lines 11, 15, and 16 will be created.
