Nanjing Road West is the name of a station on Line 2, Shanghai Metro of the Shanghai Metro. This station is conveniently located along one of Shanghai's main commercial streets, with a number of international flagship stores situated nearby.
Before October 2006, it was known as Shimen No. 1 Road station. The station changed into its current name 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. Nanjing Road West will become an interchange station serving Lines 2, 12 and 13 once the new lines open respectively.
