The Taipei Metro Songjiang Nanjing Station (Chinese: 松江南京站; pinyin: Sōngjiāng Nánjīng Zhàn; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Siông-kang Lâm-kiann Chām) is a station on the Xinzhuang Line located in Zhongshan District, Taipei, Taiwan. It is a transfer station between the Xinzhuang Line and Songshan Line. The station opened on November 3, 2010 for traffic on the Xinzhuang Line, and Songshan Line services opened on November 15, 2014.

Station overview[edit]

This underground station[2] has an island platform and has two side platforms for the Songshan Line.[3] It is located beneath the intersection of Songjiang Rd. and Nanjing East Rd. (hence the name of the station), and opened in November 2010 with the opening of the Luzhou Line and the Taipei City section of the Xinzhuang Line.[4][5]

Construction[edit]

Excavation depth for this station was around 29 meters for the Xinzhuang Line station and 20 meters for the Songshan Line station. The Xinzhuang Line station is 191 meters in length and 32 meters wide, while the Songshan Line station is 202 meters in length and 26 meters wide.[6] It has eight entrances, two accessibility elevators, and four vent shafts.[4] Two of the entrances and a vent shaft are integrated with joint development buildings. One entrance is integrated with the Council for Economic Planning and Development building. The station is equipped with platform screen doors for both lines.

Public Art[edit]

The theme for the Songshan Line station is "Metropolitan Images of Daily Life" (都會眾生相).[6] It uses four elements (earth, fire, water, wind) to present surreal situations of the combination of city and nature.

  • Earth: Business in the City Jungle

  • Water: Office Under the Sea
  • Wind: Coffee Shop Floating in the Clouds
