Shanghai Line 2 (East) to Suspend Operations Due To Typhoon Haikui

Trains will not be running on the eastern part of Line 2 between Guanglan Road and Shanghai Pudong International Airport. The reason for this is because of the imminent impact of Typhoon Haikui.

Passengers can instead transfer onto the Shanghai Maglev to go to or from Shanghai Pudong International Airport. However, underground lines, including those that go to Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, Shanghai Railway Station, or Shanghai South Railway Station, will fortunately not be impacted.

All above-ground parts of metro lines will be subject to speed limits. Passengers will also have to wait longer on the Maglev, as trains will now run only once every 30 minutes or so.

At this moment, it is not possible to estimate how long this interruption will last.
