East Nanjing Road (simplified Chinese: 南京东路; traditional Chinese: 南京東路; pinyin: Nánjīng Dōng Lù) is an interchange station between Lines 2 and 10 on the Shanghai Metro. It is located in Huangpu District, under the intersection of Nanjing Road (E.) and Henan Road (M.) in the city center of Shanghai.

Before October 2006, it was known as Middle Henan Road station. The name was changed according to the new convention to name metro stations after famous streets or sights nearby rather than the vertical street neighbouring the station, making it easier for visitors to find these places.

Old sign showing the former name of the station, Middle Henan Road, used before October 2006.

This station is part of the initial section of Line 2 that opened from Zhongshan Park to Longyang Road that opened on 20 September 1999.[1][2][3] The interchange with the main branch of Line 10 section of the station opened on 10 April 2010.[4]
