The route of Metro Line 20, essentially an extension of Line 2, has been approved by the Shanghai Urban Planning Administrative Bureau, Oriental Morning Post reported today.

The 34.7-kilometer line starts from Xujing Station in Qingpu District and ends at Zhujiajiao. Xujing Station is on Xuming Road, near Zhuguang Road.

Construction of Xujing Station has started and Line 20 is expected to open to the public by 2010.

The line crosses the Jia-jin expressway to Yinggang Road and then passes Fangjiayao, Zhaoxiang to Qingpu Town. It reaches the district's central park and then goes west to Zhujiajiao.

Construction on the 30.8-kilometer eastern extension of Line 2 started last July, previous reports said. It will link Longyang Station to Pudong International Airport. It is also expected to open to the public by 2010.

The western terminus of Line 2 is at Songhong Road Station. It will be extended to Hongqiao Airport, one stop before Line 20's Xujing Station.
