Century Avenue Station (simplified Chinese: 世纪大道站; traditional Chinese: 世紀大道站; pinyin: Shìjì Dàdào Zhàn) is a Shanghai Metro station named after Century Avenue, which runs above the station. It is currently the only interchange on the Shanghai Metro network to serve four lines (namely Lines 2, 4, 6 and 9).

The station had closed in June 2006 for four months to make way for the reconstruction of the interchange. Previously, it was known as Dongfang Road station.[1][2] The name was changed according to the new convention to name metro stations after famous streets or sights in the vicinity.

The station uses an optimized interchange solution. Line 6 uses two side platforms on the upper underground level and heads north-south, while Lines 2, 4 and 9 all use island platforms on the lower level and head east-west.
