Catching the maglev train from the radisson blu hongqang

I will be in Shanghai in a few weeks and will only have a few hours to spare. I wanted to get from the Radisson blu hong quan hotel to the start of the maglev train line, catch the train to the airport and back (not getting off the train) and then get back to the Radisson Blu. How long would this take? And what is the best way to get to the initial maglev train station from the hotel?

Take motro line # 11 at West Shanghai Railway Station (上海西站) near your hotel, get off at Jiangsu road station (江苏路站)around 12 minutes later and change meotro line # 2, get off at Long yang road station (龙阳路站) around 25 minutes later and take Maglev train at Long yang road station (龙阳路站)(the initial station. Each train set off around every 15 minutes), arrive at PVG station around 7 minutes later.

You need to take metro line 11, change to line 2, get off at the Longyang station. There you take the Maglev. I would estimate this to be a 2hr trip.

Is it viable to do this excursion at night. I mean is it safe and do the maglev trains run in the evening?

Nothing much to see around Longyang Rd. There is a big Decathlon store about 10 min walk from there if you need some cheap and good quality sports/outdoor clothing and equipment, but nothing to see from a touristic point of view. Magelv operates until 2140h BUT slows down during operations for environmental reasons:

6:45-8:45 300km/h

9:00-10:45 430km/h

11:00-14:45 300km/h

15:00-15:45 430km/h

16:00-21:40 300km/h
