Shanghai’s Metro network has been suspended completely and will remain closed until further notice, the subway operator Shentong Metro announced yesterday.
Metro Line 6 and 16 in the Pudong New Area, which were the only two lines still operating, halted services from 1pm yesterday.
Metro officials did not disclose the rationale behind the service suspension.
Most of the Metro system had been suspended since early April to aid in COVID-19 prevention and control.
Metro Line 6 was running between Oriental Sports Center Station and Gangcheng Road Station, while Line 16 operated between Longyang Road Station and Dishui Lake Station in the Lingang area.
