Jinshan Railway (Chinese: 金山铁路; pinyin: Jīnshān Tiělù) or Jinshan Line is a commuter railway line in Shanghai, part of the planned Shanghai Metropolitan Area Intercity Railway. It runs from Shanghai South in Xuhui District via Xinzhuang in Minhang District to Jinshanwei in Jinshan District, crossing the Huangpu River on a dedicated railway bridge. Passengers can transfer to Lines 1, 3, 5 and 15. Originally built in 1975 as a suburban branch, it has since been upgraded into a high-speed commuter rail line which opened on 28 September 2012.[1] The line was branded as Line 22 before opening. However, there is another line in long-term planning called Line 22, see Line 22 (Shanghai Metro).

It is the first line to provide "high speed" commuter rail services, with trains travelling up to 160 km/h (99 mph), compared to 30–70 km/h (19–43 mph) for regular metro service,[2] shortening the 56.4 km (35.0 mi) between Jinshan and downtown to 32 minutes travel time for express trains which make no stops, and 60 minutes for other trains, which stop at all stations on the line. The Shanghai-Jinshan line is the first local rail system that supports the public transportation card.

At first, the daily passenger flow was just 13,000 people a day, in 2019 has increased to 33,000. More than 60 million people have traveled on the line in the first seven years of operation.

Future expansion[edit]

Extension to Shanghai Hongqiao[edit]

In February 2021, it was stated that a project to increase the capacity of the line would start before the end of the year, and the possibility of services running to Shanghai Hongqiao railway station was being explored.[4]

Extension from Shanghai South Railway station[edit]

A branch line to Sanlin South on the Airport Link line is in the planning. Another branch line to Shanghai Stadium has been planned.

Southern extension: Jinshan-Pinghu City Railway[edit]

There are also plans to extend the line west to Haiyan County via Pinghu.[5] The Jinshan-Pinghu municipal railway is a commuter-oriented, public-transit railway that uses national trunk lines, national-Shanghai joint-venture railway trunks, and municipal railways to share resources. It plans to maintain the technical standards, transportation organization, and operation management model of Jinshan Railway. The construction length of the line is 50.51 kilometres (31.39 mi), including 9.7 kilometres (6.0 mi) in Jinshan section, 24.32 kilometres (15.11 mi) in Pinghu section, 4.7 kilometres (2.9 mi) in Jiaxing Port section, and 11.79 kilometres (7.33 mi) in Haiyan section. The total investment of the project is estimated to be about 17.089 billion yuan. There are 8 stations, including 1 connection station. (Jinshanwei), 6 new stations (Dushan Port East, Dushan Port West, Zhapu, Pinghu, Haiyan Development Zone, Haiyan East), 1 reserved station (Lindai), with an average station spacing of 8.4 km (5.2 mi), the highest design The speed is 160 km/h (99 mph). Including the renovation project of Jinshanwei railway station, and 1 EMU.[6]

It is expected that the project can be completed from the end of 2023 to the first half of 2024.[7] After the expansion project is completed, Jinshan Railway will expand from the existing 37 pairs to about 60 pairs, which can be further enlarged according to demand.
